Quiz yourself by thinking what should be in each of the black spaces below before clicking on it to display the answer.

used organism form and structure to catagorize organisms   linneaus  
organism order of classification   kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species (king phillip can order fairly good shirmp)  
all living things come from other living things   biogenisis  
thought that living things arise from nonliving things   spontaneus generation  
maggots in meat jar   redi  
brother with strait flasks   spallanzi  
broth with curved flasks   pasteur  
first person tostate organisms change over time   lamrack  
proposed idea of species modification (similar specices decended from a common ancestor)   lamrack  
discovored natural selection   darwin  
traveled on beagle   darwin  
wrote the book orgin of species   darwin  
same structure dif function   homolougus features  
same function dif structure   analogus  
structures with unknown function   vestigal structures  
new geologic strata are deposited on top of older   law of superpostion  
organisms arise where similar now extinct organismes lived   bioeography  
age of fossil compared to others   relative age  
overall age of a fossil   absolute age  
the change of genetic makeup of a populations over generations   evolution  
2 or more species in close association change with eachother   coevolution  
organisms appear similar but arent related   convergent evolution  
relationship of ancestry amoung groups of organisms   phylogeny  
many related species evolve from one   adaptive radiation  
speeding up divergence (dogs mated by humans for certian traits)   artificial selection  
hardy weinberg equilibrium (5)   no mutations. dont leave or enter population. population is large. random mating. selection doesnt occur.  
process of genes moving from one population to another   gene flow  
allele frequences change in population as result of random events   genetic drift  
average trait has highest fitness   stabilizing selection  
either extreme trait has highest fitness   disruptive selection  
more extreme trait has highest fitness   directional selection  
process of species formation   speciation  
species arise as resukt of geograpic isolation   allopatric speciation  
2 subpoplations become reproductivkey isolated within the same geograpic are   sympatic speciation  
speciation occurs at gradual rate   gradualism  
when changes occur rapicly   punctuated equilibrium  
reconstruced organisms from fossils   cuvier  
proposed idea of catastrophism   cuvier  
isea that sudden geologic catastrophies caused extinction of large groups of organisms   catastrophism  
proposed idea of uniformatarianism   lyell  
proposed idea of endosymbiosis   margulis  
idea that early prokayotic cells developed eukaryotes   endosymbiosis  
thought early gases formed amino acids that created life   oparin and haldane  
did expiriments and made amino acids   miller and urey
