On two hypothetical islands, students manipulate various parameters of a bird species, such as variability, heritability, and beak size, and various parameters of the environment such as precipitation and island size. Once the student indicates the value for each of these variables, the program then shows the effects of these parameters on the evolution of bird beak morphology in the hypothetical bird populations over 100, 200, or 300 years.
