1. Imagine: It’s 10,000 years in the future. Humans have moved from land on Earth into new environments either on this planet (e.g., underground, in the ocean), on space stations, or on other planets.
Just as we saw that populations adapted to temperatures, high altitudes, the presence of pathogens, or new sources of nourishment such as milk, these human populations in the future will have evolved to better suit life in their new homes.
Your job is to:
? Think of an environment in which this future population will live. You may be as creative as you like.
? Describe that environment and one or two ecological pressures the population will face. (One or two paragraphs)
? Consider how the population might adapt genetically to that environment. Describe that variation.
