5 True/False questions
domain → a mutualistic association between a fungus and an alga or between a fungus and a cyanobacterium
allopatric speciation → the formation of a new species as a result of an ancestral population's becoming isolated by a geographic barrier
differentiation → the specialization in the structure and function of cells that occurs during the development of an organism; results from selective activation and deactivation of the cells' genes
movement corridor → a change in the position of continents resulting from the incessant slow movement (floating) of the plates of Earth's crust on the underlying molten mantle; it has caused continents to fuse and break apart periodically throughout geologic history
nuclear transplantation → a technique in which the nucleus of one cell is placed into another cell that already has a nucleus or in which the nucleus has been previously destroyed
