Taxonomy and origins
Terms in this set (26)
The science of controlling or improving certain features of livestock their genetic breeding programs.
The science of research and study of artifacts and ancient cultures
In taxonomy, a classification plan based on grouping certain outstanding features of plants or animals
Plants or animals selected or sorted from others on the basis of certain features which are salable. Food and clothing, plants and animals are bought, sold, and traded.
A model of origins based on the theory that random that brought the first "living "cell from nonliving can. From the starting point organisms have increased and complexity and variety
And taxonomy, a classification plan based on assumed relationships of common ancestry or evolution.
Without bias. Thoughts or interpretations based on the features and characteristics of the organism instead of on feelings of the scientist.
The beginning. I'm coming into existence or being. The beginning of the earth or the universe.
O body of ideas based on personal opinion.
The science of controlling or improving certain features of crops and vegetables through genetic breeding programs.
Development of new species and new kinds from an ancestral species. A concept of evolution.
To test the truth or accuracy. To prove accuracy or truth by evidence.
T or F? A person's views on origins may be greatly influenced by embracing a particular taxonomic system
When a system of classification is based on observation of a predetermined set of factors, it is called:
An artificial system
T or F? If the theory of evolution were true it would not be possible to classify organism into distinct categories
Why have the gaps among existing organisms as well as the fossil records remain after hundreds of years of research
Because distinct populations of living things exist due to barriers to reproductive change. Because fossils may be classified into distinct taxes due to the persistence of gaps.
What is meant by "gaps" within living things are fossils?
Missing links. A distinct and obvious lack of transition between all higher levels of taxa.
The science of genetics has demonstrated repeatedly
That variation among species is not the result of evolution
On artificial system looks at ______, while a natural system looks at ______.
Morphology and common ancestors
Two practices which have helped in the development of understanding the variation within kinds of living things are animal husbandry and _____.
If the theory of evolution were true, there would be records of observable changes between the basic ______ of organisms.
The telescope shows stars to be points of light in the sky, the statement is:
Frogs are unpleasant to study, the statement is:
The earth is 4.6 billion years old, the statement is:
The system of taxonomy we study is the best one in existence, the statement is:
Variations within animal species are called breeds, the statement is:
