Tasmania is an island state off the coast of Australia. It has many animal species that are not found anywhere else in the world, such as the Tasmanian Devil. Which of the following would be a result of genetic drift on the Tasmanian devil population?
Geographic isolation may cause new favorable traits to appear in the Tasmanian devil population.
Other mammal species may breed with the Tasmanian devil population to produce a new species.
The Tasmanian devil may become extinct with limited genetic variation.
A new species of the Tasmanian devil may appear with such a small population.120s
When an organism joins a new population, its genes become part of the new population's gene pool. How does this gene flow affect neighboring populations?
Gene flow between neighboring populations keeps their gene pools similar and decreases genetic diversity over time.
Gene flow between neighboring populations has no effect on the gene pool.
Gene flow between neighboring populations keeps their gene pools similar and increases genetic diversity over time.
Gene flow increases the chance for reproductive isolation which can cause new species to form.120s
Which of the following is a consequence of genetic drift?
more alleles in the population
less mating among individuals60s

always results in a positive change in natural selection
can be contagious from one person to the next via coughing, saliva, etc
