comment What software/approach to use to build a graph based on microarray gene expression correlation?
do you have any examples of similar graphs - perhaps an illustrative example could help (draw one in powerpoint and save it as an image) plus some idea of the data, and what you are trying to show

it is desperately unclear what you are trying to ask

comment How does trees know to balance themselves so that they never fall down
tree's do fall down, there may be a benefit, in terms of stability, to growing in a more "balanced" spread of branches but other factors also influence the direction the branches grow e.g. prevailing sun and wind conditions

comment A colony of humans are sent to an alien world, at what point would the descendants evolve to be genetically incompatible with Earth humans?
that would mean answers would tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise

comment A colony of humans are sent to an alien world, at what point would the descendants evolve to be genetically incompatible with Earth humans?
but it's impossible to answer without using a great degree of speculation

comment Can we influence evolution by teaching primates to control fire? Should we?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about ethics

comment Why didn't the polar bear change its color from white to black during evolution to absorb heat?
This is thought to be why they have black skin, and they have white fur because it is camouflage in the snow where they hunt, a black bear wouldn't be much good at sneaking up on a seal in the snow!

So you mean there is 32(?) males, 6 hermaphrodites, and 101-(32+6) females??

The picture is irrelevant, and once again (this must be the 5th time I've told you specifically) stop using block quotations - learn how to use this site properly!

comment Evolutionary chronology - if any, which species have evolved in the last 100 years
I think this is opinion based and wrong, as @remi.b notes, I am sure examples of very modern evolution could be found in human

comment Evolutionary chronology - if any, which species have evolved in the last 100 years
Evolution is a continuous process, there's things that have evolved since you asked this question. I think you are looking for speciation events (what you called an "observed evolution" - this would be a very incorrect term)

This question is very hard to read, I suggest that if you put some effort in to the formatting you'll more likely get a good answer :)
