Solved by a verified expert:EVOLUTION CONNECTIONMerriam’s kangaroo rats (Dipodomys merriami) live in North American habitats ranging from moist, cool woodlands to hot deserts. Assuming that natural selection has resulted in differences in water conservation between D. merriami populations, propose a hypothesis concerning the relative rates of evaporative water loss by populations that live in moist versus dry environments. Using a humidity sensor to detect this evaporative water loss, how could you test your hypothesis?
