- What does comparing DNA from 2 species tell us?
- Parts of a flower?
- Fossil Record
- What process do all cells need to do to make use of the sugar that the plants make?
- a Stamen, pistil, anther, pollen, petal, sepal.
- b Cellular respiration. In cell respiration the energy is freed from the sugar made during photosynthesis. Some of the energy is used to form ATP.
- c one of the alternative forms of a gene (that governs a characteristic)
- d tells us if the two organisms are similar or related, and also helps us find common ancestor
- e the history of life in the geologic past as indicated by the traces or remains of living things
5 Multiple choice questions
- the likelihood that a possible future event will occur in any given instance of the event
- an organism's appearance or other detectable characteristic
- Rocks- organisms buried by sediment. The fossils are preserved when sediment hardens to form sedimentary rock.
Amber- organisms get caught in sticky tree sap. sap hardens to form amber and then the fossil is preserved.
Ice- organims fall or die in water, and become preserved fossils when the water freezes and becomes ice.
Asphalt- pools of sticky asphalt trap and preserve organisms to make fossils
petrification- when an organism's tissues are replaced with minerals
- The nuclear membrane is dissolved. Paired chromatids align at the cell's equator.
- The standard method used to divide Earth's long natural history into managable parts
5 True/False questions
Why do the cells need to make ATP? What do they use to make it? → Adenosine TriphosPhate is made from the process Cell Respiration. ATP supplies energy that fuels cell activities, such as growth.
Adaptation (be able to discuss particular adaptations) → a characteristic that improves an individual's ability to survive and reproduce in a particular environment.
Mendel → Greg Mendel's experiments with pea plants led to the discovery of dominant and recessive traits.
Discuss the four parts of natural selection. → Overproduction- organisms may have many offspring but not all of them survive
Inherited Variation- every individual has its own combination of traits. Each organism is similar but not identical to its parents
Struggle to Survive- some organisms may get caught by predators. others may starve or get diseases. only some of them will survive to adulthood.
Successful Reproduction- the organisms that are best adapted to their environment are likely to have many offspring that survive.
Why are cyanobacteria important? → Cyanobacteria are a kind of prokaryotic organism that use sunlight to produce their own food through photosynthesis.
