5 True/False questions
population ecology → the application of ecological principles to the study of the structure and dynamics of a collection of ecosystems; the study of the biodiversity of interacting ecosystems
complementary DNA → a symbiotic relationship in which one partner benefits without significantly affecting the other
reciprocal altruism → in animal behavior, a selfless act repaid at a later time by the beneficiary or by another member of the beneficiary's social system
placenta → in most mammals, the organ that provides nutrients and oxygen to the embryo and helps dispose of its metabolic wastes; formed of the embryo's chorion and the mother's endometrial blood vessels.
translocation → the synthesis of a polypeptide using the genetic information encoded in an mRNA molecule; there is a change of "language" from nucleotides to amino acids
