a. If eighteen of the panthers are heterozygous and if homozygous recessive individuals die before reproducing, what is the genotype for the remaining two panthers?
b. Using the Hardy – Weinberg equations, determine the frequencies of the dominant and recessive alleles.
c. This population of panthers reproduces and the resulting population is also twenty individuals. Based on the allele frequencies calculated in part b, calculate the genotypic frequencies for the homozygous dominant genotype, heterozygous genotype, and homozygous recessive genotype.
d. How many of the twenty panthers in this generation will suffer from the disease and die?
e. What is the number of survivable Florida panthers?
