-introduction of new host can cause little competition initially compared to original host that
suddenly experiences more competition (e.g. soapberry bugs)

-in Galapagos Islands, a single lineage of finches underwent an adaptive radiation which
diversified their beak characteristics and body sizes as a result of different niches and food
-before the drought in the Galapagos Islands, natural selection favoured birds with small beaks
-during the drought in the Galapagos Islands, natural selection favoured larger birds with bigger
beaks
-offspring of survivors of the drought had larger beaks and large body sizes
-in the second drought, there was increased competition between large competitors, providing
an advantage for smaller birds
-evolution is dynamic in that populations can change repeatedly (or change in one direction,
then back again)
-environment changes bring selective pressures to cause evolutionary changes
-inferred causation increases when multiple events involving selective pressures correlate with
each other
-microevolution occurs today and causes changes in genotype frequencies
-macroevolution are changes that distinguish higher taxonomic groups
-sperm competition among different primates occurs in order for fertilization of eggs of a single
female (occurs if females mate with more than 1 male)
-large testes evolved in male primate species where females mate with more than one male
-using different primate species as independent data points overinflates the sample size by not
considering them being one evolutionary event that occurred
-an evolutionary event in primates involved changes in mating system that led to evolution of
different size in testes

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
