Exam 1 Study Guide – Bio 124: Cusic The best way to do this study guide is to try and answer each question to the best of your ability without referring to your notes or the textbook. This should be a review, not additional practice. These questions highlight the main points of each chapter that you should know before going into the exam, so if you can answer these questions with little to no difficulty, then you are on your way to achieving a good grade on the first exam. Note, the study guide only goes over the first 4 chapters since Dr. Cusic has not gone over all the chapters in class. Chapter 29: Plant Diversification I 1. Give some examples as to why and how land plants evolved from algae. 2. Understand the life cycles of both mosses and ferns, in which you can indicate where both mitosis and meiosis occur in the life cycle, and whether something is either diploid or haploid. 3. True or False. The moss gametophyte undergoes meiosis to form gametes. 4. MC: The moss sporophyte is: a. Free-Living and Independent b. Free-Living and Dependent c. Not Free-Living and Independent d. Not Free-Living and Dependent 5. Know the different Phyla that compromise the bryophytes and the Vascular Seedless Plant, and learn the characteristics of each phylum. 6. Explain the evolution of leaves. What are Sori and Strobili and what plants would you find either on? What does it mean if a plant is Homosporous? Heterosporous? 7. What plants flourished in the Carboniferous period? What led to the end of the Carboniferous period, and what plants flourished as a result? Chapter 30 – Plant Diversification II 1. Compare Gymnosperm and Angiosperm plants. What does “Gymnosperm” mean in Latin? 2. How many integuments would you find on a Gymnosperm seed? Angiosperm seed? 3. Compare and contrast seeded vascular plants with seedless vascular plants and nonvascular plants. Why are seeded vascular plants more commonly seen than seedless and nonvascular plants? 4. Know the life cycles of pines and flowers. Pay attention to the number of ovules. 5. What aspects of Angiosperm distinguish them from other types of plants? 6. What are some evolutionary advantages of seeded vascular plants compared to seedless and nonvascular plants? (note that a lot of these question revolve around understanding the characteristics of each type of plant) 7. Compare monocots and dicots.
