a skeleton on the inside of a creature's body, typically composed of bone or cartilage
Soft tissue inside the bone that produces blood cells
the portion of the skeleton that supports and protects the head, neck, and trunk
the portion of the skeleton that attaches to the axial skeleton and has the limbs attached to it
Closed Circulatory System
a circulatory system in which the oxygen-carrying blood cells never leave the blood vessels
blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart
Tiny, thin-walled blood vessels that allow the exchange of gases and nutrients between the blood and the cells of the body
blood vessels that carry blood back to the heart
the lobes of the brain that receive signals from the receptors in the nose
the lobes of the brain that integrate sensory information and coordinate the creature's response to that information
the lobes of the brain that receive signals from the receptors in the eyes
The lobe that controls involuntary actions and refines muscle movement.
the lobes that coordinate vital funtions, such as those of the circulatroy and respiratory systems, and transport signals from the brain to the spinal cord.
the process by which the male places the sperm inside the females's body, where the eggs are fertilized
the process by which the female lays eggs and the male fertilizes them once they are outside of the female

Scientists struggled with classifying red pandas and giant pandas because they have physical similarities to both raccoons and bears. How has the availability of DNA evidence affected the evolutionary classification of organisms such as the pandas? A. Organisms with the most shared derived genetic characters are considered the most closely related. B. Organisms with the most shared derived genetic characters are classified in the most clades. C. DNA evidence has had little impact because derived physical characters are still more important than derived genetic characters. D. Derived genetic characters can be used to identify evolutionary relationships, but only if organisms have some shared physical characteristics. E. DNA analysis has confirmed species classifications based on derived physical characters, but no new classifications have been suggested.
Which of these human activities is linked to the formation of a hole in the ozone layer? A. cutting forests for lumber B. use of coolants that contain CFCs. C. burning fossil fuels D. aerobic respiration
Suppose that a fungal disease originates in the middle of an orchard, initially affecting only one tree. The disease spreads out radially at a constant speed of 10 feet per day. What area will be affected after 2 days, 4 days, and 8 days? Write an equation that expresses the affected area as a function of time, measured in days, and show that this function is a polynomial of degree 2.
