The surface was molten. As Earth cooled, an atmosphere formed mainly from gases spewed from volcanoes.
How did the gasses in Earth's early atmosphere get there?
Rocks returned from the Moon have been dated at a maximum of 4.51 billion years old.
What is the age of the Earth according to Science?
hat were capable of performing photosynthesis on planet Earth.
How did oxygen first enter Earth's atmosphere?
Prokaryotic cells took in other prokaryotic cells (some that did photosynthesis which later became chloroplasts and some that carried out cellular respiration which later became mitochondria). They lived together in a symbiotic relationship. Eventually over time the cells became chloroplasts and mitochondria (organelles rather than their own living cell).
Explain the endosymbiont theory in general terms (how eukaryotic cells evolve from prokaryotic):
What is the evidence for the endosymbiont theory?
the branch of biology that deals with phylogenesis.
What is a phylogeny?
time goes up by 30 every year
What is a molecular clock and how is it used to tell relationships between species?
Is having 4 limbs an ancestral or derived trait?
What is the outgroup?

Thus, morphology encompasses the study of biological structures over a .
Would wings be a biochemical or morphological character?
The nucleotide sequence of DNA can help us reconstruct evolutionary trees.
Would DNA sequences be a biochemical or morphological character?
Bipedalism is a form of terrestrial locomotion where an organism moves by means of its two rear limbs or legs
What is bipedalism?
Radiometric dating can calculate the age of rocks/fossils by calculating # or parent/daughter isotopes and using half lives of those isotopes.
How does radiometric dating work (in general) and what is it used for?
Africans have more diversity in their mitochondrial DNA which indicates that they are the oldest group (mutations take time), and that the human species originated in Africa.
How does mitochondrial DNA support the Out of Africa theory? Get answer from this article exert.
