First Test

Genetics the study of inheritance of traits
taxonomy giving things a new name/classifying
evolution changing to adapt to an enviorment
ecology organisms as they live in their environment
paleontology study of fossils
cytology study of cells
eutomology study of insects
physiology study of the organs doing work
morphology study of outside organs
anatomy study of organs
mammalogy animals
ornithology study of birds
herpetology study of reptiles and amphibians
ichthyology study of fish
monera ex: bacterium, #Cells: unicellular, mode feeding: heterotrophic, mode of reproduction: asexual, type of cells: proka
protista ex: amoeba, paramecium #Cells: unicellular, mode feeding: heterotrophic, mode of reproduction: asexual, type of cells: eukaryotic
Fungi ex: , #Cells: , mode feeding: , mode of reproduction: , type of cells:
plantae ex: sunflower, #Cells:uni , mode feeding: hetero , mode of reproduction: asexual , type of cells: eukaryotic
animalia ex: pig , #Cells:multi , mode feeding: hetero , mode of reproduction: sexual , type of cells:eukaryotic
n1 number of animals initially captured and marked
n2 number of animals subsequently captured
n3 number of recaptures that were marked
what are the five assumptions that would cause the method to fail if they were not true 1. may catch same organism 2. organisms will avoid traps 3. conditions expected to be constant but have no control over 4. assume organisms don't die 5.assume organisms don't migrate
Where were fossils usually found? -sedimentary rocks formed near water -igneous rock near volcanoes -metamorphic rocks created by pressure
homologous organs same organs different use ex: birds wings, insect wings
analogous organs same use different organs ex: birds wing, insect wing
embryos time of life between zygo and fetus
implications of phylogeny see more common traits in Embryos than adults
what are vestigial organs organs that are wasting away along time from lack of use
geography distribution of resources and how we use them
biogeography animals and their resources
divergent evolution two similar species become different over time
convergent evolution unrelated organisms acquire or evolve similar structures as an adaptation to particular environmental conditions.
