Question and answer
Q: What happens when a population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium?
A: The gene pool stays the same. The above is correct. Another possible answer is The phenotype frequency does not change. The allele frequency does not change. [ 1.No mutation occurs. 2.Each allele must be equally beneficial. 3.The population must be infinitely large. 4.All members of the population must breed. 5.All mating must be totally random. 6.All individuals must produce the same
number of offspring. 7.No immigration or emigration can occur. Read more: ]

User: A snake is brought into a new ecosystem that is hotter than its old ecosystem. The snake cannot survive in the high temperature and dies. Which is the best way to describe this snake in the new ecosystem?

User: An eagle is a predator for squirrels. A new law stops humans from hunting eagles, and the eagle population increases. What will happen to the squirrel population?

User: When will natural selection occur?

User: A trait has two alleles, represented by p and q. If p = 0.42, what is q?

User: A population of beetles is kept in a controlled ecosystem. No beetles are allowed to enter or leave. The graph below shows the population of beetles. Which best describes the ecosystem at Point C?

User: How are tropical rainforests and temperate forests different?

Weegy: Tropical rain forests are found near/around the equator Temperate rain forests are found along western coasts of some countries Read more:

User: The phenotype frequency in a population changes after each generation. Which would most likely be causing this?

Weegy: Phenotypes frequencies in a population vary over time. Phenotypes are determined by genotypes which are determined by combinations of alleles. If a population is in Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium the allele frequencies will remain constant. [ Even though the frequency of each allele remains constant, the way that the alleles are paired in individuals will vary, changing the phenotype frequency in each generation. Some traits give an advantage. Competition between organisms. source: WikiAnswers ]

User: In the Hardy-Weinberg equation shown below, p is the frequency of the dominant allele, and q is the recessive allele. What does 2pq represent in the equation?
