HS-LS4-4 Evidence Statement

Life Science: Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity - Evidence Statement 4

HS-LS4-4: Construct an explanation based on evidence for how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations.

[Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on using data to provide evidence for how specific biotic and abiotic differences in ecosystems (such as ranges of seasonal temperature, long-term climate change, acidity, light, geographic barriers, or evolution of other organisms) contribute to a change in gene frequency over time, leading to adaptation of populations.]
