Evolutionary Ecology discussion list

Check out this demonstration of the interference between two waves.

Here is a great applet for the interference of three waves.

For Monday, respond to the following question in a paragraph. Bomb-proof is best.

What is natural selection’s relationship to future events? Is there any pattern to selection’s ability
to prepare an organism for the future? Can you predict any pattern in the evolutionary strategies that have
evolved for dealing with temporal patterns?
