Describe how mutations can cause genetic disorders?
The mutations of the chromosomes can cause this problem. The chromosomes are what make up the genes that you care from you to daughter or son and from them to their children. If one of the chromosomes were to be mutated (messed up) it can cause he or she to make cells that are not right. This can cause problems when the cells are joined to make skin, organs and other body parts.

Why do mutations that occur in the skin or nervous system tend to have little effect on the evolution of a species?
Most mutations that occur have a neutral effect, or none at all, so they would not affect evolution. Organisms with mutations that cause detrimental impact typically will not survive; therefore, they will not reproduce, and the mutation will not be passed on, so the species will not be affected overall. Beneficial mutations are typically the only mutations that will affect an organism's posterity and the evolution of its species, but good mutations are very rare. This is why most mutations have little effect on the evolution of a species.
Asked in Genetic Diseases
What types of external stimuli cause mutations?
While this question should be recategorized because external stimuli do not cause the mutations that result in hemophilia, there are many types of radiation that can cause gene mutations as well as chemical exposure. For example sun light is UV light radiation wich can cause mutations (for example the mutations that result in skin cancer).
