Ashlyn Perez (Editor) Evolution Park This amusement park is a fun place for everyone. Each and every ride is based off of a step or process of evolution. Convergent Evolution When things come close together. Divergent evolution The process of organisms becoming less alike. Geographic Isolation Welcome to Evolution Park! Raashan Disruptive Selection A type of selection that removes individuals from the center of a phenotype distribution and thus causes the distribution to become bimodal Fish Reptile Mammal Jaira Jaira Jaira Raashan Stabilizing Selection punctuated Equilibrium A type of selection that removes individuals from both ends of a phenotype distribution thus maintaining the same distribution mean Gradualism Raashan A theory that states that species evolve over time. Directional Selection When a species of the same type become completely different due to location on the map.

Changes due to
3. weather Ashley Hawker The process of natural selection involving the genome for a species a theory stating that some species evolve rapidly in brief amounts of time. Reproductive Isolation Raashan Sometimes groups of organisms within a population become isolated genetically without prior geographic isolation. Ashley .H Geographic Isolation Genetic Equilibrium
Describes the condition of an allele or genotype in a gene pool, such as population where the frequency does not change from generation to generation. n the fruit fly example, some fruit fly larvae were washed up on an island, and speciation started because populations were prevented from interbreeding by geographic isolation Ashley. H Ashlyn.P REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATING MECHANISMS Genetic Drift When one species gives rise to two new species, what is it that determines whether or not the two can reproduce, if allowed to regain physical contact? We can help define separate species by considering the mechanisms that restrict gene flow between them. Is the change in the frequency of a gene variant in a population due to random sampling. punctuated Equilibrium
(continued) Gradualism (continued) Ashlyn.P By: Daniel Cole By: Daniel Cole By: Daniel Cole By: Daniel Cole In this concept in small spurts there is a period of little too no change followed by a period of huge changes usually caused by mutations in few individuals. Jaira Though its a good idea the fossil records don't support the concept of gradualism so it stays just a theory. Direction Selection
