  1. Phenotypic Distribution of Polygenic Traits and Allele Frequency for Introductory Biology John Brady and Travis Curry Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School Indianapolis IN Website:

  2. Phenotypic Distribution of Polygenic Traits • Phenotype- Observable Traits • Examples: • Polygenic Trait- phenotype is dependent on alleles at many different genes • Examples:

  3. Why Garlic Mustard? • Abundant on campus • Invasive species • Relates to other content like populations, competition, biodiversity, evolution.

  4. Environmental Literacy “…the capacity of an individual to act successfully in daily life on a broad understanding of how people and societies relate to each other and to natural systems, and how they might do so sustainably.” http://www.fundee.org/facts/envlit/whatisenvlit.htm

  5. Oh Deer: Allele Frequency “Mate or Die”

  6. Background • Project Wild “Oh Deer” activity : used to demonstrate competition for scarce resources limiting populations: Project Wild • Illustration of variation leading to differential fitness success in a wild population • Just add some alleles and mating and it is easy to demonstrate directional and stabilizing selection in a population.
