In this high school unit on evolution, students initially investigate the case of young girl with a life-threatening infection of pan-resistant bacteria. This case sparks questions that lead them to investigate the growing prevalence of such cases and the discrepancies between antibiotic use in their communities and CDC recommendations. They expand their investigations to look at population changes occurring in a population of birds (juncos) which exhibit noticeable differences in physical and behavioral traits from the past 60 years.

In this next investigation, you will use a model that has many of the same mechanisms in it that it had before. One change to the simulation is the way that the individual bacteria can vary in the starting population. Bacteria don’t just vary based on color; they also vary slightly in the structure of their cell membranes.

Individual bacteria with trait variations that allow them to survive exposure to antibiotics, reproduce. Over time this leads to a shift in the distribution of traits in bacteria populations, so that those variations become more prevalent over time.

The same interactions and outcomes in the simulation were also at work in Addie's body and also at work in our community over the past ninety years. Bacteria populations became more resistant to being killed by antibiotics as trait distributions in the population that granted them a competitive advantage for survival became more prevalent over many generations of exposure to antibiotics.

Scientists often compare models and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each. We have spent some time developing a model for how bacteria populations have changed over time to become more resistant to antibiotics. Now, it is time to compare our model to that of two scientists before: Charles Darwin and Jean Baptiste de Lamarck.
