Making a Game of Population Genetics
Thornton, Kent W.; Ashley, David C.
Science Teacher, 44, 3, 45-47, Mar 77
Describes a game that illustrates the principles of population genetics and helps explain the occurrence of evolution through changes in gene frequencies. Demonstrates the importance of genetic variability in evolution: winning is achieved by a player's species becoming "completely heterozygous" for six characteristics. Players move directed by cards that dictate changes in environment and population dynamics. (CS)
