    (11% of focus)
    • Explain how natural selection can impact allele frequency of a population
    • Describe the factors that can contribute to the development of new species (e.g. isolating mechanisms genetic drift, founder effect, migration)
    • Explain how genetic mutations may result in genotypic and phenotypic variations within a population
    • Interpret evidence supporting the theory of evolution (i.e. fossil, anatomical, physiological, embryological, biochemical, and universal genetic code)
