Lab: (U4 M2) Darwinian Snails

Darwinian Snails is a SimBio virtual Lab that presents a model that demonstrates the process of evolution through natural selection. The Lab examines the assumptions behind natural selection using an interactive simulation of green crabs preying on periwinkle snails. You will "violate" each assumption in turn to explore whether evolution by natural selection still occurs.

Your task is to complete the sections 1–5 in the SimBio Lab simulations.

You are not required to complete section 6, the Graded Questions/exercise within the software.
