CP Evolution

Evolution F14

abiogenesis – idea that life originates spontaneously from nonliving matter.
biogenesis idea that life arises only from other living organisms
biochemical comparison organisms with similar biochemical composition suggest that they have developed from a more primitive common ancestor.
carbon dating radiometric dating method that uses the naturally occurring radioisotope (14C) to estimate the age of materials up to about 58,000 to 62,000 years
covolution The mutual influence on the evolution of two different species interacting with each other and reciprocally influencing each other's adaptations
evolution Changes that occur over time to organisms. This can cause the change of genetic information; certain traits can be lost
fossil Remnants of once existing organisms
geographic isolation occurs when biological populations of the same species become isolated from each other to an extent that prevents or interferes with genetic interchange.
natural selection process by which populations change in response to their environment leave more offspring
pesticide/herbicide resistance the adaptation of pest species targeted by a pesticide resulting in decreased susceptibility to that chemical.
pollination The act of transferring pollen from the anther to the stamen of the plant.
reproductive isolation Various structural, behavioral, and biochemical features can prevent interbreeding and thus reproductively isolate populations as distinct species.
speciation process by which new species are formed.
vestigial organ A type of structure that has no significant function in the organism of today.
