The pea aphid, a type of insect, contains light-capturing pigments in its exoskeleton. pea aphids gained the ability to synthesize these pigments from genes transferred from fungi. while pea aphids do not have chloroplasts or fix carbon, researchers have found that pea aphids with more pigments have higher levels of atp than those with fewer pigments. pea aphids also have been shown to increase production of atp when exposed to sunlight. based on this information, is the pea aphid a true autotroph?

Over the past 60 years, many amphibian species have experienced significant population declines and some species have become extinct. scientists suspected that local human activities such as the destruction of wetlands, regional pollution, and deforestation were the main reasons for these losses. however, research over the past 20 years reveals significant amphibian population declines in protected areas of the world, such as nature preserves and parks. these global declines suggest widespread problems including increased ultraviolet radiation, acid rain, and disease. in switzerland, for example, 14 of the 20 native amphibian species are threatened with extinction. chytridiomycosis is a fungal disease first identified in 1998 as a cause of massive amphibian deaths. in some severely impacted populations, a few individuals have survived, perhaps because of some natural resistance. if these resistant individuals continue to survive and prosper, new resistant populations might emerge. this would be an example of the founder effect artificial selection genetic drift natural selection sexual selection
