Evolution: Genetic Diversity Visualise this difficult topic!

Evolution and Genetics

Highly visual and interactive,

this software will captivate your students as each scenario unfolds. Encourage your students to discover, through experimentation, how population numbers and allele frequency are affected by:

• Isolation

• Migration

• Disasters

• Founder effect

• Small populations

• Population bottlenecks

• Hardy-Weinberg principles

Designed for senior and junior high school students, this engaging simulation promotes a clear understanding of genetic drift and other diversity principles.

Experiments in the form of blackline masters will save you time and effort.

Features: • Control sea level. • Allow limited or large scale migration. • Cause population bottlenecks with various disasters. • Populate islands with single beetles or groups.

Features: • Options allow Hardy-Weinberg conditions to occur when there is one large island. • Gene frequency can be monitored over the total area or single islands.

While graph and data displays are available, its the visualisation of the genetic variation which will keep their interest.
