A tiny shoot begins to grow upward from the germinated seed.
Period of time when the plant gets taller, grows
more leaves, and makes its own food by photosynthesis.
Appear at the end of stems.
Responsible for creating new seeds if pollinated.
Process in which a pollinator (bird, insect or wind) moves pollen from one flower to another, fertilizing the flower so new seeds can grow.

The common grandfather of two first cousins has hereditary hemochromatosis, a recessive condition causing an abnormal buildup of iron in the body. Neither of the cousins has the disease nor do any of their relatives. a. If the first cousins mated with each other and had a child, what is the chance that the child would have hemochromatosis? Assume that the unrelated, unaffected parents of the cousins are not carriers. b. How would your calculation change if you knew that 1 out of every 10 unaffected people in the population (including the unrelated parents of these cousins) was a carrier for hemochromatosis?
What is the difference between a dependent variable and an independent variable?
Brown lemming densities in the tundra areas of North America and Eurasia show cyclic behavior: Every three to four years, lemming densities build up very rapidly, and they typically crash the next year. Sketch a graph that describes this situation.
