1. A highly concentrated solution of salt water is known as sole (pronounced, soh-lay). It is prepared by dissolving large amounts of salt in water until the water is saturated with salt. Explain in detail the properties of water that make it such a good solvent for the salt to dissolve into. 2. A population of grasshoppers in the Kansas prairie has two color phenotypes, green and brown. Typically, the prairie receives adequate water to maintain healthy, green grass. Assume birds that eats grasshoppers move into the prairie. Explain how the presence of the birds will affect natural selection of the grasshoppers? Explain how the presence of the birds might affect natural selection of grasshoppers in a drought year? 3. Lithops are a type of plant that resembles little stones; as such, they are called Stoneplants. These plants have the ability to blend in with their surrounding, which affords them protection from predators. You find yourself in an area that is full of these plants. Describe four characteristics of the Lithops you could use to distinguish these biotic plants from the abiotic stones they mimic. 4. Stephanie sold her vacation in home in Miami.
