Question: a population of 1000 dung beetles was split into five...

Question details

A population of 1000 dung beetles was split into five populations when irrigation canals were built through their habitat. The five new populations were called the Northern, Southern, Eastern, Western, and Central populations. Each new population consisted of about 200 individuals. The five populations continued to evolve, and no migration occurred among populations. One hundred generations later each population still has about 200 individuals and a biologist investigates them What would a biologst expect to see in the five populations after 100 generations if the environment did not change for any of the populations? Each population would probably have fewer alleles-that is, versions of genes-than it would have had 100 generations ago. O A Agree B. Disagree
