BY 124 Intro to Biology 124 is a Biology course at UAB taught by the following professor: Cusic. 3 elite notetakers have produced 4 study materials for this Biology course.
These are biology 123 notes for the first exam in Dr. Cusic's class. Hopefully they are helpful!
These are all the notes I took while in her class for Exam 2. Good luck everyone!
Notes cover viruses, descent with modification, microevolution, biological species concept, conditions on early Earth, fossil record, phylogeny, extreme organisms, plant diversity, gymnosperms, plant hierarchy, transport in vascular plants, soil and plant nutrition, plant responses to internal/external stimuli, fungi, animal diversity,l invertebrates, periods in the evolution of life, vertebrates,
Organization of vertebrate circulatory systems, tracheal systems in insects, immune system, osmoregulation and excretion,
This week's notes introduce non-vascular plants and some of their characteristics. Next week will include vascular plants.
Exam 1 Notes
Introduction to plants
Plant and charophyte characteristics
Exam 1 notes
The notes for this week finishes up on plant classification and begins to explore the anatomy and physiology of plants. Next week will include plant transportation mechanisms.
This study covers the main aspects of most of the chapters on the next exam. Good luck!
I know this is being posted late, but I wanted to make sure that all of exam 1 would be on this last set of notes. Good luck!
No more plants, so now we are starting to go into Kingdom Animalia and Fungi.
Progression into more animal classifications.
A summary of "Chapter 29 - Plant Diversity I: How Plants Colonized Land"
These notes are from the first week of class, excluding what was covered on Chapter 30 (separate document).
Adapted from Cusic's lectures, mostly from session 3 and 4
Chapter 30 was covered on 1/12/17 and 1/17/17 between Weeks 1 & 2. Please feel free to use for your own reference.
This study guide covers Chapters 29, 30, 35, 36. Chapters 37 & 39 will also be on the exam. This can be a useful tool for a quick self assessment on most of this unit.
Chapter 39 - Plant Responses to Internal and External Signals.
Here is a study guide with all major material summarizes as well as some questions and diagrams for you to complete. See how well you know the material before the exam.
This study guide covers general concepts and application of those concepts. If you can fully answer these questions up should be in good shape for the exam.
Covering Material on plants found in chapter 27 of the text
Material finishes chapter 29 and begins Chapter 30. I also included the answers to the blank sections of the previous notes. (I also noticed that I put the wrong professor on the first notes. Fixed it here. Whoops!)
This finishes the section on Gymnosperms and goes to Angiosperms. Chapter 30
seed plants, pine life cycle, flower structure. Angiosperm life cycle , monocots and dicots, levels of biological organization, evolutionary adaptation of roots, shoots and leaves, plant tissue, plant cell types, xylem, phloem, primary growth, secandory growth, dicots, monocots, lateral roots, leaf anatomy
Vascular plants, nonvascularplants, life cycle of mosses and ferns
It covers ch 29,30,35,36
