- Alfred Russel Wallace
- Sex Chromosome
- Inheritance of acquired Characteristics
- a (biology) taxonomic group whose members can interbreed
- 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
- 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.
- d (genetics) a chromosome that determines the sex of an individual
- e the notion that species, once created, can never change; an idea diametrically opposed to theories of biological evolution
5 Multiple choice questions
- - 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
- Relating to specific character traits shared in common between two life-forms and considered the most useful for making evolutionary interpretations.
- - the study of human biology within an evolutionary framework
- 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
- 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
Locus → The 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.
Cladogenesis → Speciation through a branching mechanism whereby an ancestral population gives rise to two or more descendant populations.
Georges Cuvier → large-scale evolutionary changes that take place over long periods of time
Codon → a specific sequence of three adjacent bases on a strand of DNA or RNA that provides genetic code information for a particular amino acid
Bottleneck → A stressful period in which few organisms of a population survive, resulting in loss of genetic variation in the population.
