5 Matching questions

  1. Fixity of Species
  2. Alfred Russel Wallace
  3. Species
  4. Sex Chromosome
  5. Inheritance of acquired Characteristics
  1. a (biology) taxonomic group whose members can interbreed
  2. b the hypothesis that organisms' bodies change during their lifetimes by use and disuse and that these changes are inherited by their offspring
    - Traits developed during a parent's lifetime could be passed to their offspring
  3. c (The Origin of Species) a British naturalist, explorer, geographer, anthropologist and biologist. He is best known for independently proposing a theory of evolution due to natural selection that prompted Charles Darwin to publish his own theory.
  4. d (genetics) a chromosome that determines the sex of an individual
  5. e the notion that species, once created, can never change; an idea diametrically opposed to theories of biological evolution

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. - an approach to research
    - observation -> hypothesis -> experimentation -> interpretation -> report results
    a series of steps followed to solve problems including collecting data, formulating a hypothesis, testing the hypothesis, and stating conclusions
  2. Relating to specific character traits shared in common between two life-forms and considered the most useful for making evolutionary interpretations.
  3. - the study of human biology within an evolutionary framework
  4. the number of times an allele occurs in a gene pool, compared to the total number of alleles in that pool for the same gene
  5. characteristic of nucleic acids in which the sequence of bases on one strand determines the sequence of bases on the other

5 True/False questions

  1. LocusThe most abundant type of RNA, which together with proteins froms the structure of ribosomes. Ribosomes coordinate the sequential coupling of tRNA molecules to mRNA codons; also called ribosomal RNA.


  2. CladogenesisSpeciation through a branching mechanism whereby an ancestral population gives rise to two or more descendant populations.


  3. Georges Cuvierlarge-scale evolutionary changes that take place over long periods of time


  4. Codona specific sequence of three adjacent bases on a strand of DNA or RNA that provides genetic code information for a particular amino acid


  5. BottleneckA stressful period in which few organisms of a population survive, resulting in loss of genetic variation in the population.
