In this project students will observe the effects of natural selection for height in both acacia trees and giraffes. In this simulation there and no negative consequences to increase height. Students will be asked to predict the results of natural selection. Like the real world both species produce offspring that are roughly the same height of the parents give or take one unit. Giraffes must eat or starve to death. Low level leaves are available to everyone where high elevation leaves are only available to the tallest giraffes. Students are expected to predict how evolution will proceed.
Do you expect there to be more short giraffes or tall giraffes after 1 minute
What about after 5 minute
In the real worls is there a limit on possible height to the giraffes
In the real world is there a limit on possible height to the leaves
