SUMMARY OF THE REST OF THE

STANDARDS
By: Jordan Johnson

SUMMARY OF STANDARD 1.A.1: A-F

Natural selection is essential for evolution to


occur.
Due to "competition for limited resources",
the organism with the most favorable
phenotype typically survives and passes on
their traits to the next generation.
Evolutionary fitness is measured by
reproductive success.
Both genetic variation and mutations are
important to natural selection, because it
makes the gene pool diverse.
The stability of the environment affects the
"evolutionary rate and direction".
Adaptations are genetic variations that are
favored by the environment, which makes the
organism more likely to survive and
reproduce.
In small populations random events can have
a significant influence on the population's
evolutionary rate and direction.

SUMMARY OF STANDARD 1.A.2: B

Variations in phenotypes are


important to natural selection
in populations.
Variations in phenotypes
are not created by the
environment, instead they
are product of genetic
mutations and random
gene combinations.

SUMMARY OF STANDARD 1.A.3: A,B

Evolution is highly affected by


random chances or processes.
Genetic drift occurs in
small populations and is a
nonselective process.
The decrease in genetic
variation within a
population will decrease
the differences between
populations of the same
species.

SUMMARY OF STANDARD 1.C.1: A

Extinction and speciation have


been present throughout all of
Earth's history.
Adaptive radiation can
spend up speciation rates,
because new habitats are
created which are better
suited for different
phenotypes.

SUMMARY OF STANDARD 4.C.2: B

Genotype expression in an
organism can be influenced by
environmental factors.
In addition, the local
environment can have an
influence on the organism's
genotype expression.
