Think back to Section 44.6. When researchers moved guppies from populations preyed on by cichlids to a habitat with killifish, the life histories of the transplanted guppies evolved. They came to resemble those of guppy populations preyed on by killifish. Males became gaudier; some scales formed larger, more colorful spots. How might a decrease in predation pressure on sexually mature fish allow this change?
