The two genotypes in this image are big G little g

Also in the image if G= green flowers and g= yellow flowers the possible phenotypes are 75% GREEN 25% yellow

In the image there are 2 possible homozygus outcomes and 2 heterozygus outcomes

Why are the offspring so much more divers than the parnets?

The offspring are so much more diverse because they come from two gene pools.

Whats the survival value of genetic variation?

The survuival value is important because the type of animal that dies diddnt have the charecteristics to survive
