1 . Objectives 2 To numerically and graphically compare two sets of data Activity 7 To recognize and analyze patterns in long-term data To demonstrate an understanding of the effect of the environment on natural selection To explain how humans can influence natural selection by manipulating the environment Like Moths Around a Flame In this activity you will examine some data about moths. graph the data. draw some conclusions based on the data and the graph. Introduction Imagine that you have a piece of red construction paper on your desk in front of you. If you wrote your name on the piece of construction paper with a red marker, and then wrote your name on the same paper with a black marker, which do you think would be easier to read? If you showed the paper to one of your friends across the room, which do you think they would see? A similar scenario happens all the time in nature. Blending into the environment can help an animal avoid being seen, which may help it avoid being eaten by a predator. In England, there is a species of insect called the peppered moth that provides us with a great example of this, and helps us understand the process of natural selection. Some of these moths are dark-colored, and some are lighter-colored. The color of each moth is determined by its genes for color, so a moth that is born dark stays dark, and a moth that is born light stays light. The peppered moth is most active during the nighttime hours (nocturnal), and spends its days resting on things like tree trunks. From the mid-1800s until the mid-1900s, people noticed that the number of moths of each color changed.

2 62 Biology with the TI-83 Plus Problem How does the environment affect natural selection? The data table below shows a comparison of the number of moths of each color by decade. In 1860, for example, if 100 moths were counted, 90 of them would have been light and 10 of them would have been dark. Year Light-Colored Dark-Colored Procedure 1. Press o. If there are any equations on this screen, press to place the cursor next to Y1=, and then press to clear the equation. Repeat this sequence to clear all equations. 2. Press z and make sure the defaults are set. If you need to change a setting, press to move the cursor, and then press Í to highlight the item on the left. 3. Press y. and make sure the defaults are set. 4. Press Í. 5. Clear L1 of all data. Press } to move to the heading L1. Press Í. Repeat this procedure for any list that has data in it. 6. Using the data table above, enter the data into L1 (year), L2 (light-colored), and L3 (dark-colored). To do this, type in the first number in L1 (1860) and press either Í or to move down to the next spot in the list, then enter the next number. Continue until all the data is entered. When you complete the data from L1, press ~ to move to L2 and enter the light-colored data. Enter the dark-colored data in L3. Make sure you have the same number of entries in each list.

3 Activity 7: Like Moths Around a Flame Press y,. Press Í to select 1:Plot1. Set your TI-83 Plus as shown at the right. 8. Press y,. Highlight 2:Plot2 and then press Í. Set your TI-83 Plus as shown at the right. 9. Press p and make appropriate settings for the size of your graph. Remember what you are plotting on the X-axis and on the Y-axis. Leave the Xres at Press s to see your data displayed graphically.

4 Data Collection and Analysis Activity 7: Like Moths Around a Flame Name Date Data Analysis 1. What is the independent variable in this activity? What is the dependent variable? 2. Examine the data in the table. Describe the trend you see in the numbers of light-colored moths as the decades passed. Also, describe the trend you see in the numbers of dark-colored moths. 3. From 1950 to 1970, what was the change in the number of light-colored moths? Calculate the change in the number of light-colored moths per year. Calculate the change in the number of light-colored moths per decade.

5 Activity 7: Like Moths Around a Flame From 1950 to 1970, what was the change in the number of dark-colored moths? Calculate the change in the number of dark-colored moths per year. Calculate the change in the number of dark-colored moths per decade. 5. Using the calculations you just did in #3 and #4, determine when you would expect the number of each type of moth to be the same. Explain how you determined this. 6. During the middle 1800s, England began what was called the Industrial Revolution. Industry really increased, and with that increase came a much greater need for energy. Since nuclear power plants were still decades away, what was the source of energy that England used to power their huge increase in industry? What was the environmental impact of using this type of fuel?

6 66 Biology with the TI-83 Plus How do you think this impact influenced the numbers of light- and darkcolored moths? 7. During the middle 1900s, environmentalists really started voicing their concerns about the harmful effects that industry was having on the environment. England and other countries started paying closer attention to cleaning up the environment by reducing emissions from industrial factories. These concerns helped to promote policies like the Clean Air Act in many countries. As these policies became implemented, new forms of energy started being used, and industry was required to reduce emissions from their existing factories. What was the environmental impact of the Clean Air Act? How do you think this impact influenced the numbers of light- and darkcolored moths? 8. Explain how your answers to #6 and #7 describe the effects of natural selection on the population of peppered moths in England.

7 Activity 7: Like Moths Around a Flame What do you think would happen to the environment and to the moth population if factories went back to using coal for their power, and the Clean Air Acts were eliminated? Explain your response. 10. Brainstorm and then describe another example of natural selection in animals, and one in plants.

8 Teacher Notes Objectives 2 To numerically and graphically compare two sets of data Activity 7 Like Moths Around a Flame To recognize and analyze patterns in long-term data To demonstrate an understanding of the effect of the environment on natural selection To explain how humans can influence natural selection by manipulating the environment Concepts 2 Natural selection Environmental impact on organisms Data Collection and Analysis Answer Key In this activity there are two sets of data that have the same independent variable. Make sure students realize that both dependent variables share the same independent variable. 1. The independent variable in this activity is the year. The dependent variable is the number of moths. 2. Light-colored moth population decreases until 1950, and then starts to increase. The dark-colored moth population increases until 1950, and then starts to decrease. 3. From 1950 to 1970, the change in the number of light-colored moths is an increase of 15. The change in the number of moths per year is an increase of 3/4, (0.75) per year over 20 years. The change in the number of moths per decade is an increase of 7.5 moths per decade over 20 years. 4. For dark-colored moths, the change from 1950 to 1970 is a decrease of 15. The change in the number of moths per year is a decrease of 3/4 per year over 20 years. The change in the number of moths per decade is a decrease of 7.5 moths per decade over 20 years. 5. You would expect the number of each type of moth to be the same in the 1990s. Explanations will vary.

9 Activity 7: Like Moths Around a Flame The source of energy that England used to power their huge increase in industry was coal. The environmental impact of using this type of fuel was that there was more soot in the air, falling onto the trees and discoloring the light-colored bark. The impact on moths: Dark-colored moths would increase, and light-colored moths would decrease. 7. The environmental impact of the Clean Air Act was that there was less soot in the air, so less fallout onto the trees. The impact on moths: Light-colored moths would increase, and dark-colored moths would decrease. 8. Depending on the color of the tree bark, either the light- or dark-colored moths would be selected for or selected against. Those selected for would be allowed to reproduce, while those selected against would not. 9. It is likely that the population of the dark-colored moths would increase because of the darker colored bark. Dark moths would be selected for. 10. Answers will vary.
