Will geographical isolation be a major factor in the speciation of an organism that reproduces asexually? Why or why not?
In the case of asexually reproducing organisms, geographical isolation can't be considered a factor. This is due to the fact that meiosis does not occur during asexual modes of reproduction.
Only variations that confer an advantage to an individual organism will survive in a population. Do you agree with this statement? Why or why not?
How is the equal genetic contribution of male and female parents ensured in the progeny?
Explain how sexual reproduction gives rise to more viable variations than asexual reproduction. How does this affect the evolution of those organisms that reproduce sexually?
What evidence do we have for the origin of life from inanimate matter?
Explain the importance of fossils in deciding evolutionary relationships.
