Grade 7 Evolution
Which scenario is an example of natural selection? (Select all that apply.)
  1. Farmers crossbreed two types of cows to produce a breed of cow that has high quality beef and can tolerate a hot climate.
  2. Giraffes that have longer necks survive a dry season by eating leaves from the tops of trees. Those giraffes breed more successfully that year.

  1. are always helpful
  2. are always harmful
  3. can be either harmful, helpful, or neutral
  4. are intentionally random and have no effect on natural selection
Grade 12 Evolution
What is phylogeny?
  1. history of evolution of organisms (tree diagram)
  2. order of taxa
  3. two-part key used to identify organisms by their physical features
  4. the science of classifying and naming organisms
Grade 9 Evolution
When does natural selection occur?
  1. when more individuals are born than can survive
  2. when there is heritable variation
  3. when there is variable fitness among individuals
  4. all of the above
