Ordering the Chaos

  • 0:00 - 0:02
    So the answer to this question is that both the
  • 0:02 - 0:07
    skin color and the disposition appear to be related in these
  • 0:07 - 0:10
    families, as opposed to height, doesn't appear to related in
  • 0:10 - 0:14
    our first family. Now what do we mean by this? All
  • 0:14 - 0:16
    I mean is that when we look at the son
  • 0:16 - 0:20
    here in the first example, he's much taller than the parents.
  • 0:20 - 0:23
    Both the parents are short, so we're asking the question,
  • 0:23 - 0:25
    where did the trait of the son being tall come from.
  • 0:25 - 0:27
    Not only does it not appear to come from either one
  • 0:27 - 0:29
    of the parents individually, but it doesn't look to be a
  • 0:29 - 0:33
    combination of the pair's height either. In the case of skin
  • 0:33 - 0:36
    color and disposition though, we see that both the daughter and the
  • 0:36 - 0:39
    baby share the same skin tone as the parents so it
  • 0:39 - 0:43
    appears as if that trait was related in this case. And
  • 0:43 - 0:47
    the same thing for disposition. While one parent seems to be
  • 0:47 - 0:51
    sad most or all of the time, the children are happy and
  • 0:51 - 0:54
    resemble what the other parent looks like most of the time,
  • 0:54 - 0:57
    which is having a happy or really cheery disposition. Now it's
  • 0:57 - 1:00
    really important to remember as we go through this lesson and
  • 1:00 - 1:03
    all the lessons in this course Just because a trait appears
  • 1:03 - 1:07
    to be related or to be inherited in a particular ways.
  • 1:07 - 1:10
    Looks can be deceiving sometimes. And we will talk in great
  • 1:10 - 1:14
    detail about what aspects of traits have a genetic component and
  • 1:14 - 1:17
    which of those might have an environmental component down the line.
