1. Describe what Frank B. Livingstone (1928‒2005) meant when he wrote that “There are no races, only clines” (1962).
2.How should we communicate scientific findings about human biological variation more accurately and responsibly to those outside the anthropological discipline?
3.Bergman’s and Allen’s rules apply to many animals, not just humans. Look at the following images of two different hare species.
Based on what you can see in the images and using only Bergmann’s Rule and Allen’s Rule, which of these hares is adapted for a cold climate and which is adapted for a hot climate? What adaptations do they have to suit their environments? Do humans living in similar environments share the same adaptations? Remember, you must use Bergman’s and Allen’s rules in your analysis, so be sure you know these rules and refer to them.
4.Humans are unusual because our cultural practices can actually change our environmental circumstances. We can change the environment in which natural selection acts on our traits. We see this in the evolution of adult lactose tolerance and in the maintenance of the sickle-cell trait.
Think about our current lives and life styles.
Give us a hypothesis of how our current cultural practices might impact our population’s future biological evolution.

Suppose you wanted to predict Winnings ($) using only the number of poles won (Poles), the number of wins (Wins), the number of top five finishes (Top 5), or the number of top ten finishes (Top 10). Which of these four variables provides the best single predictor of winnings?
Develop an estimated regression equation that can be used to predict Winnings ($) given the number of poles won (Poles), the number of wins (Wins), the number of top five finishes (Top 5), and the number of top ten (Top 10) finishes. Test for individual significance and discuss your findings and conclusions.
Create two new independent variables: Top 2–5 and Top 6–10. Top 2–5 represents the number of times the driver finished between second and fifth place and Top 6–10 represents the number of times the driver finished between sixth and tenth place. Develop an estimated regression equation that can be used to predict Winnings ($) using Poles, Wins, Top 2–5, and Top 6–10. Test for individual significance and discuss your findings and conclusions.
Based upon the results of your analysis, what estimated regression equation would you recommend using to predict Winnings ($)? Provide an interpretation of the estimated regression coefficients for this equation.
