Natural Selection Evidence for Evolution DNA

100

Who is Charles Darwin AND Cuvier, Linneaus, Erasmus Darwin
Who wrote Origin of Species- a book that changed Biology and the world in the 1850's? AND Name one other biologist that assisted in building evolutionary theory.

100

What is fossil evidence?
This form of evidence looks at ancient artifacts of once living organisms retained in layers of the earth. These artifacts may help us know how previous species lived and where they were present, etc.

100

What is so that it can be read on both the leading and lagging strands for accurate copying?
The reason why DNA be unzipped prior to Replication

200

What is Stabilizing selection?
Selection toward the mean- example ; human birth weight.

200

What is DNA evidence/Genetics?
Form of evidence that relies on molecular biology and has confirmed many previous hypotheses about evolutionary relationships among living things, even with humans and our prior ancestors!

200

What is transcribes?
Ribonucleic acid ____________ DNA so that it can be read properly in order to make proteins.

300

What is Directional Selection?
Selection towards one extreme or the other within a population, may change over time. Example: very light and dark phenotypes in a species of moth.

300

What is biogeography?
Examining the existence and origins of species across areas. May shed light on evolutionary relationships.

300

What is ribosomes, translate
___________ (organelle) interpret or _____________ RNA and makes proteins by generating one amino acid for every 3 RNA codes.

400

What is Diversifying Selection?
When two extremes of phenotypes are selected for equally; example; blue and brown lazuli buntings (birds)

400

What is comparative anatomy?
Examining anatomical similarities - homologies and anologies

400

What is - that DNA must be replicated , transcribed, and then translated before it can generate proteins. This is the basis for all genetic traits- this process. This is called the Central Dogma because it is true for ALL living things.
Explain the Central Dogma of Molecular Bio.

500

What is competition for female access , competition among males increase in both ornamental/exaggerated phenotypes in males vs females and also behavioral adaptations to compete for females. In female dominant groups, females may look for different traits for males- ability to acquire resources (food, territory) , ability to serve the group (protection, offspring rearing)
DAILY DOUBLE ;) Explain male-male competition and give a species example OR Explain a female dominant scenario and how she may base her "choosiness"

500

instructor will interpret. May be origin of humans and apes? When we moved out of Africa, etc.
Daily DOuBLE!!!! ;) Discuss one major misconception about evolution regarding humans AND correct it.

500

What is that hemoglobin would not be able to carry O2 or iron effectively. This would cause someone to potentially get iron anemia, feel tired often because of a lower O2 saturation in the blood, lower Cellular resp potential due to low O2. Etc..
A sequence of nucleotide bases are not translated correctly and cause a mutation in a gene that causes hemoglobin to not be made correctly. (hemoglobin is a protein) What PHYSIOLOGICAL effects may happen and how would that impact a person for instance?
