Under what human dwelling conditions will cockroaches with glu+  or glu–  alleles best compete?


Suppose a large apartment complex is infested with cockroaches that have never been exposed to glucose-baited poison. A new tenant moves in and unknowingly brings along some stowaway glucose-averse cockroaches from her heavily-treated former apartment. These individuals escape the moving boxes and start reproducing in their new home, where they have to compete with the current resident cockroaches.

Using the fitness values you calculated in the previous part, determine which genotype would “win” (that is, survive and reproduce more than the other) if the two genotypes had to compete for resources in the kitchens described below. (Assume that the traps are hydramethylnon + corn syrup traps.)

Kitchen w/ food items out, plus traps: (glucose averse)

Kitchen w/ food items out, no traps: (glucose-attracted)

Clean kitchen plus traps: (glucose averse)

Clean kitchen, no traps: Its a tie, no winner!
