Question: a population of finches living on an island have beaks...

Question details

A population of finches living on an island have beaks that range from very small to very large; beak size follows a normal distribution. A hurricane passes over the region and the remaining food is mostly tiny grubs that live deep in holes. Finches with smaller beaks have an easier time getting to these grubs. Draw three hypothetical graphs each showing the distribution of beak size in this population before the hurricane, after the hurricane, and one generation after the hurricane when: (a) S is small and h2 is big 1s big and h is sm (c) S is big and h is big You will need three graphs (a, b, and c), each with three curves on it.
