    For what

    We've shown that the usefulness of patterns for species' survival can be related to a mathematical model of how the pattern arises and what that does is it gives more complex information on why the leopard has its spots."

    For what that,does,is and it + verb to be side by side further complicates what the point is.

    Could anyone break it down or rephrase it please.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would rephrase it thus:

    '...a mathematical model of how the pattern arises and what that does is give more complex information on why the leopard has its spots.'

    Thanks for the reply Rover but I'm still confused about how the verb to be,is,functions. But for 'is' there would have been no problem as it is followed by it + verb.
