PUNNETT SQUARES -- CROSSES INVOLVING ONE TRAIT

In a certain species of animal, black fur (B) is dominant over brown fur (b).

Using the Punnett square, predict the genotypes and phenotypes

of the offspring whose parents are both Bb or have heterozygous black fur.

Genotypes: ______ % homozygous black fur (BB)
                  ______ % heterozygous black fur (Bb)
                  ______ % homozygous brown fur (bb)

Phenotypes_______% black fur

                  ______ % brown fur

Do the same thing when one parent is homozygous black and the other is homozygous brown.
 

Genotypes: ______ % homozygous black fur (BB)
                  ______ % heterozygous black fur (Bb)
                  ______ % homozygous brown fur (bb)

Phenotypes _______% black fur

                  ______ % brown fur

Repeat this process again when one parent is heterozygous black and the other is homozygous brown.
 

Genotypes: ______ % homozygous black fur (BB)
                  ______ % heterozygous black fur (Bb)
                  ______ % homozygous brown fur (bb)

Phenotypes_______% black fur

                  ______ % brown fur
