Bio 11 DNA, Evolution and Taxonomy Review



Chapter Topic Question
7 Taxonomy ·      The science of naming organisms is called ___ and was invented by ___/

·      What is the correct order for taxa from least to most specific characteristics?


·      In the classification of human’s, the term is “homo sapiens”, what do the two words represent in regards to taxonomy?


·      Of the following words: kingdom, phylum, class, order, genus and species, which are closely related


·      If two organism’s have the same name in their binomial name, then they are in the same?



    Organism’s can sometimes be classified by their metabolism or cell structures.

Can you define and give examples for:

·      Prokaryotic

·      Eukaryotic

·      Heterotrophic

·      Autotrophic


·      If an organism is unicellular and has no nucleus it could be classified as belonging to which kingdom?



·      If an organism is 15 microns in diameter, and has chloroplasts, which kingdom would it belong to?


    Can you compare:

·      Cell theory

·      Gene theory

·      Biogenesis theory

·      Evolutionary theory

2 and 3 Evolution ·      Traits that make a species better suited for a way of life are called a _____

·      How many definitions are there to describe evolution and what are they?


  Direct Proof ·      How could fossils be linked to homologous, analogous and vestigial structures?


  Indirect Proof ·      How are homologous structures formed?


·      How could a vestigial structure be formed and why would snakes have hips?



·      Can you use specific examples to discuss homologous, analogous and vestigial structures?


·      What is the difference between and homologous and an analogous structures?



·      A wing of a bird and butterfly are what type of structures?


·      If the sequence of nitrogen bases in humans is similar to a chimpanzee, what kind of indirect evidence could this be?



·      If different species show similar traits to suit a specific environment, what type of evolution could this be?


3 Evolution mechanisms ·      What is gradualism?

·      What is punctuated equilibrium and what would be an example?

·      How is divergent evolution and natural selection linked to the population of finches in the Galopagos Islands?


See worksheets and text DNA ·      What is a nucleotide?

·      What are the four bases found in DNA and which binds to the other?

·      What is different in RNA in reference to type of sugar, bases and structure when comparing it to DNA?

·      What are the three building blocks of DNA?

·      Can you label a drawing of DNA?

·      What is the order of flow of information regarding: proteins, genes, DNA and RNA?


  Interpreting sequences of DNA ·      Can you use a genetic code codon, anticodon and t rna table to translate a sequence of code?


·      Current definitions include what term and why did Darwin not include this idea in his theory?


  Fill in the blank words ·      Genetic drift

·      Genetic pool

·      Gene flow

·      Mutations

·      Non random mating

·      Adaptive radiation
