Which of the following is not true about the distribution of species? a. A species’ native range does not include areas where it was introduced by humans. b. Some species have a range they inhabit only for breeding. c. Seasonal ranges include areas where species are found for part of the year. d. All the organisms in an ecosystem share distribution patterns.

[ad_1]

Answer:

d. All the organisms in an ecosystem share distribution patterns.

Explanation:

Native range is what is known in biology as the areas where a species is naturally found, not places were humans introduced them, species have some range only for breeding, for example some frogs only go into the rapids for breeding, and not for living or hunting, and seasonal ranges are areas where the species are found for a part of the year, for example the butterflies that migrate south to Mexico on the coldest months of the year and then come back to the United States for the warm summer, the only one that is not true is that all the organisms in an ecosystem share distribution patterns.

You need to determine the number of ways in which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify. First, you have to realize that the order is irrelevant, that is: it is the same competitor_1, competitor _2, competitor _3 than competitor_3, competitor_2, competitor_1, or any combination of those three competitors.

So, the number of ways is which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify is given by the formula of combinations, which is:

C (m,n) = m! / (n! * (m -n)! )

=> C (50,30) = 50! / (30! (50 – 30)! ) = (50!) / [30! (50 – 30)!] = 50! / [30! 20!] =

 = 47,129,212,243,960 different ways the qualifiying round of 30 competitors can be selected from the 50 competitors.

A plant breeder found a species of flowering plant with red flowers, some white flowers, and some pink flowers. While she would like to sell all three colors of flowers, she only has permission to dig up one plant to bring back to the nursery as breeding stock. What would be the best thing for her to do? (2 points)

[ad_1]

When red crosses with white flowers to give pink flowers, we are looking at incomplete dominance, i.e. the offspring is a blend (pink) of the parents’ characteristics (red or white).

Since we’re given in the question two pink flowers crossed to give 25% red, 25% whit and 50% pink, we would be thinking of a punnett square between RW and RW, to give

RR RW

RW WW

Since both parents are RW, that makes both parents heterozygous.
