Name the 4 supergroups within Domain Eukarya and be able to draw a phylogenetic tree showing relationships among the supergroups - Animalia - Fungi - Plant - Charophyte algae Know the supergroup to which each single-celled eukaryote listed in lecture belongs Excavates Explain what the branching pattern on a phylogenetic tree indicates about evolutionary relationships An unknown shared trait Compare phylogenetic trees to see if they represent the same or different relationships between groups Use a phylogenetic tree to identify which groups descend from a more recent or more ancient common ancestor 1 BIOL 1362 Spring 2016 Define the ancestral characteristics that unite the Archaeplastida - alternation of generations - sporangia - gametangia - apical meristem - embryo containing spore Define the shared derived traits that unite the plant kingdom Shared w/ green algae: chlorophyll A/B Shared w/ charophyte algae: - process for making cell wall - sperm w/ flagellae Draw the cycle of alternation of generations – name each generation, indicate ploidy (1n or 2n) and type of cell division that produces the single cells that develop into the next generation 1. Sporophyte (2n) - First generation MEIOSIS 2. Spore (n) MITOSIS 3. Gametophyte (n) - Second generation MITOSIS 4. gamete (n)FERTILIZATION 5. zygote (2n) MITOSIS Name the 7 phyla within Kingdom Plantae and be able to match the name of plants listed in lecture to the correct phylum - Liverworts - Mosses - Hornworts - Lycophytes - Monilophytes - Gymnosperms - Angiosperms Draw a phylogenetic tree showing relationships among the 7 plant phyla Draw a phylogenetic tree showing relationships among these animal phyla: Porifera, Cnidaria, Chordata, Mollusca, Annelida, Nematoda, Athropoda Be able to indicate on the phylogenetic tree which groups are part of the Bilateria, Deuterostomia, Lophotrochozoa, and Ecdysozoa List ancestral characteristics common to all animals and choanoflagellates, distinguish animals from choanoflagellates by shared derived characteristic of animals Choanoflagellates are collared flagellates having a funnel shaped collar of interconnected microvilli at the base of a flagellum. They have a distinctive cell morphology characterized by an ovoid or spherical cell body 3–10 µm in diameter with a single apical flagellum surrounded by a collar of 30–40 microvilli List and map shared derived characteristics of Eumetazoa, Bilateria, Deuterostomia, and the protostomes onto a phylogenetic tree Characteristics of eumetazoans include true tissues organized into germ layers, the presence of neurons, and an embryo that goes through a gastrula stage. List the 4 protostome phyla discussed in lecture • Phylum Chordata (vertebrates and their kin) 2 BIOL 1362 Spring 2016 • Phylum Echinodermata (sea stars, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, etc.) • Phylum Hemichordata (acorn worms and possibly graptolites) • Phylum Xenacoelomorpha (2 species of wormlike animals)  List shared derived characteristics of Lophotrochozoa and list 2 phyla that belong to this group Some animals, such as ectoprocts, develop a lophophore, a horseshoeshaped crown of ciliated tentacles used for feeding. Other phyla, including annelids and mollusks, have a distinctive larval stage called a trochophore larva. List shared derived characteristics of Ecdysozoa and 2 phyla that belong to this group The name Ecdysozoa (nematodes, arthropods, and other phyla) refers to animals that secrete external skeletons (exoskeleton). As the animal grows, it molts the old exoskeleton and secretes a new, larger one, a process called ecdysis. While named for this process, the clade is actually defined mainly by molecular evidence. List the 4 classes of arthropods and be able to match the name of arthropods listed in class (and in the Life video) to the correct class - Chelicerata - Myriapoda - Crustacea - Insecta/Hexapoda Darwin and Natural Selection: Chapter 19 Describe Lyell’s ideas about geologic processes and inferences about Earth’s age Geologic processes operate today at same rate as the past. Inference: Earth must be at least 6000 y/o. Compare & contrast Lamarck’s ideas vs Darwin’s idea regarding mechanisms of change in living organisms Lamarck: use v disuse Darwin: natural selection Define descent with modification Refers to the passing on of traits from parent organisms to their.offspring List and recognize examples of descent with modification in living organisms, both within and between species, and fossil organisms The evidence for this includes: • The correspondence of chromosome 2 to two ape chromosomes. The closest human relative, the common chimpanzee, has nearidentical DNA sequences to human chromosome 2, but they are found in two separate chromosomes. The same is true of the more distant gorilla and orangutan. • The presence of a vestigial centromere. Normally a chromosome has just one centromere, but in chromosome 2 there are remnants of a second centromere The presence of vestigial telomeres. These are normally found only at the ends of a chromosome, but in chromosome 2 there are additional telomere sequences in the middle Define 2 conditions necessary for natural selection and give examples that satisfy each condition - variation in inherited traits - more offspring than environment can support Evaluate conditions under which natural selection could occur A. More organisms are born than can survive. 3 BIOL 1362 Spring 2016 B. Organisms vary in their characteristics, even within a species. C. Variation is inherited. D. Differences in reproduction and survival are due to variation among organisms. Understand that natural selection acts on individuals, but causes changes in populations Compare and contrast natural selection and artificial selection: conditions necessary, selection pressure, result Both- variation in heritable trait Artificial selection - trait desired by humans - desired trait increases Natural selection - selection pressure - trait desired by environment - favorable trait increases Chapters 11: Heredity Define Mendel’s Law of segregation (in vocab list below) Define Mendel’s Law of independent assortment (in vocab list below) Monohybrid cross – use Punnett square to detail possible genotype of gametes and progeny and indicate progeny phenotypes cross b/w heterozygous parents for 1 character; 3:1 Dihybrid cross – use Punnett square to show possible genotypes of gametes and progeny and indicate progeny phenotype cross b/w heterozygous parents for 2 characters; 9:3:3:1 Identify dominant or recessive modes of inheritance from the notation (example: A is the dominant allele, a is the recessive allele) Analyze a pedigree to determine whether a trait is dominant or recessive Use information in a pedigree to determine genotype and calculate the probability of a dominant or recessive trait being inherited by a son or daughter Use a Punnett square to figure out possible gamete genotype and progeny genotypes for autosomal traits Use genotype and phenotype of parents to figure out genotype and phenotype of offspring (and vice versa) Use correct notation for dominant, recessive, co-dominant, wild-type, mutant, sex-linked Define gene, locus, and allele. Know how many alleles an individual diploid organism can have for each locus. Gene: the biological code of all traits Locus: location on a chromosome where a gene sits Allele: version of gene that codes for specific version of a character An individual can have 2 alleles, one from each parent, in each locus. Explain why the number of alleles per gene in an individual can be different from the number of alleles per gene in a population An individual has one allele per gene in each chromosome, meaning the individual exhibits only one trait.In a population, many different alleles may exist for one gene due to variation in a population.
