You will be submitting your answers to the lab assignment in two parts. The first part of the lab
assignment consists of the laboratory exercise questions. The second part of the lab assignment is
the application question. The first textbox on the submission page corresponds to the first part of the
lab. Be sure to paste the laboratory exercise questions, with your answers, into this textbox. The
second textbox on the submission page will be for your response to the application question.
LABORATORY EXERCISE QUESTIONS
~~1.
Simulation Results.
a. Briefly describe what your fabric ‘meadow’ looked like. Which colors of rabbits were left
at the end of your simulation and how many of each color remained? (5 points)
b. Why did the results come out the way they did? Explain why all of the colors of rabbits
did not end up with the same final numbers in the simulated population. The explanation
here should demonstrate an understanding of natural selection. (5 points)
~~2.
a. What would have happened to the simulated rabbit population’s size if there had been no
predation? (3 points)
b. If we were looking at a real rabbit population, what other factors might cont rol the
population of the rabbits if no predators had been in the area? (2 points)
~~3. Given our simulation rules, if Coyotus predacious and Rabbiticus hopquickus are both
nocturnal (so the simulation was re-done, but this time in the dark), would color play a more
important role or a less important role in determining fitness? (2 points)
~~4.
a. Given our simulation parameters, if hunters trapped all the coyotes, what would happen
to the diversity of colors within the surviving rabbit population? (3 points)
b. Would all colors of rabbits have equal survival rates? Explain. (3 points)
~~5. What is the relationship between the chance to survive and reproduce and the traits an
organism possesses? (5 points)
~~6. What does it mean to say that “the driving force behind evolution is the environment”? (5
points)
~~7. Given our simulation parameters, how would the results differ if ONE particular color of
rabbit was able to produce six offspring in each litter while all of the other colors still only
produced three per litter? (5 points)

selected for in a population. (6 points)
a.
b.
c.
~~12. Given the same simulation starting with 100 rabbits, again with 10 rabbits of each of the 10
original colors and following the same simulation rules. But this time the environment is a
yellow-flowered cloth ‘meadow.’
a. If you followed the same simulation rules, what do you predict that this
population would look like after 3 generations? (2 points)
b. Explain your answer. (5 points)
~~13. Given the same simulation, but this time all 100 starting rabbits are yellow and , in this
instance, the ‘meadow’ is a red cloth.
a. If you followed the same simulation rules, what do you predict that this population would
look like after 3 generations? (2 points)
b. Explain your answer (5 points)
~~14. Assume the rabbit population can undergo sexual reproduction, and that rabbits with a
muskier scent are more sexually attractive than rabbits without the scent. Would this affect the
characteristics of a population? Explain and justify the reasoning behind this. (5 points)

adapt by natural selection? Explain your response. (5 points)
APPLICATION QUESTION

from this lab be useful to you, or how can you apply this knowledge to your everyday life as a
non-scientist? The application will be graded according to the rubric below. (20 points)
