BSC 116 Jennifer Howeth TEST TWO STUDY GUIDE After taking the first test I found that her power points were basically all the test was based off of I wasn t really sure how to study for the first test so I made note cards I would NOT recommend that It s time consuming and when it comes down to it not very beneficial When the test got closer I started rewriting my notes repeatedly in conjunction with reviewing the power points I think the book goes into far too much detail that is not necessary to memorize and understand To prepare for the test I m going to rewrite my notes review the power points redo the homework problems and make sure I understand the diagrams In this study guide I will include my notes clicker quizzes and emphasis key points from class highlighted in yellow Test Two includes lectures 1220 Clicker Question Which hormone is most likely to cause a plant to ripen Answer Ethylene Clicker Question Which plant hormone would have an effect on leaves falling off during the fall season Answer Ethylene Clicker question Why do porifera represent a separate lineage distinct from all other animal phyla Answer Sponges lack true tissues Clicker question Which of the following is not a characteristic of cnidaria Answer choanocytes Clicker Question True or false deutrosomes occurs in vertebrates and invertabraes Answer True Clicker Question Jaw first occurred in which group Answer chondrichthyes Clicker Question Which group is NOT located in sarcoterygian Answer sharks Clicker Question Key innovation that best transitions sarcoterygian from an aquatic environment to a terrestrial one Answer amniotic egg Lecture 13 Plant Nutrition 17 essential nutrients required to complete life cycle 9 macronutrients needed in large amounts carbon oxygen hydrogen nitrogen phosphorus sulfur potassium calcium magnesium 8 micronutrients Epiphytes Grow on other plants absorb rain water eg Orchids bromelids commensalism Parasitic many with roots that function as haustoria similar to mycorrhizae some photosynthetic Carnivorous Plants Get nutrients from animals live in low nitrogen environments acidic bogs Venus ytrap Rhizobacteria found in Rhizosphere rhizosphere soil adjustment to plant roots rhizobacteria mutualistic bacteria in rhizosphere lOX100X more bacteria in rhizosphere than in nearby soil Bacteria help acquire nitrogen N2 in atmosphere that is not usable NH4 and N03 bacteria make NH3 turns into NH4 and is in soluble nitrogen fixing bacteria fix N2 ammonifying bacteria decomposers nitrifying bacteria convert NH4 to NO that plants can use legumes and rhizobium have special symbiosis infect root and form nodules provides anaerobic environment 1 ectomycorrhizae external sheath of hyphae 2 arbuscular mycorrhizae growth thru cell wall to contact cell membrane branch to form brother haustoria Lecture 13 Flowers are the reproductive shoots owers sex organs made of up to 4 rings of specialized leaves sporophylls sepals outermost ring usually green petals may be brightly colored to attract pollinators stamens male owerparts anthers on filaments produce pollen carpals female parts Gametophyte 4 microsporangia pollen sac microsporangia 2n make 4 microspores 11 each microspore divides generates Double fertilization begins with pollen grain stigma pollen tube grows down generative cell divides into two sperm 1 sperm fertilizes the egg zygote 2n other sperm joins with two polar nuclei endosperm 3n endosperm provides nutrients for seed triggers seed and fruit development double fertilization benefits seed by creating 3n endosperm for nourishment double fertilization benefits the parent by not wasting resources on unfertilized egg Eudicots 2 seed leaves cotyledons seeds vary in cotyledon development some have thick cotyledons no endosperm cotyledon full of starch form endosperm some have thin cotyledons more endosperm food supply remains endosperm provide phloem sap to seeding Monocots 1 seed leaf cotyledon last stage of seed development ejects most of its water and closes micropyle surrounded by hard seed coat remains dormant until conditions favorable for germination varies from plant to plant rain fire freezing partial digestion seeds can remain viable for decades seed bank Germination begins with the uptake of water inhibition causes expansion seed coat ruptures triggers enzymes to digest and mobilize store nutrients eudicots radically emerges first followed by pocotyl monocots coleoptile protects shoots leads way up shoot grows through Simultaneous seed and fruit development double fertilization triggers hormonal changes ovary is transformed ovary wall becomes pericap thickened wall of fruit other ower parts are shed Fruits vary depending upon ower arrangement 1 simple fruits some single carpel 2 aggregate fruits from owers in an in orescence ovary wall 3 multiple fruits form multiple owers in an in orescence 4 accessory fruits incorporate other oral parts behind the ovaries continuing traits in certain environments stable environment don t need mate no frail seedlings pass exact genetic information down Disadvantage no variation no conducive for changing sel ng sexual but as disadvantages many plants with selfincompatibility chronologically or physically separate for male and female 921 Plant Behavior behavior is often perceived as an animal phenomenon behavior is an action carried out by muscles or glands under control of a nervous system in response to a stimulus Phytochromes and Etiolation modifications of growth form from the dark ex a potato grows in the dark no leaves no chlorophyll all white energy put into root elongation Deetiolation switch to typical above ground morphology due to the presence of light Phytochrome reception in cytoplasm many receptortype molecules in the membrane light shines through the membrane and activates the phytochrome protein changes the structure Transduction weak signals are amplified by second messengers two openings 1 cGMP activates protein kinase 2 opens gate Ca2 channels protein kinases act on other proteins to produce a response Plant Hormones small molecules produced in one part of plant body that can be localized and transported to other parts to elicit a response idea plant hormones developed from studies of phototropism grow toward light shape of shoot depends upon receptors in coleoptile message carried by a soluble horomone auxin isolates and shown to elongate darkside auxin does not work this way in all systems Eight Important Classes of Plant Hormones small molecules produced in small amounts amplified by signal transduction most hormones involved in regulation in growth r Auxin promotes cell elongation of shoots control pattern formation natural auxin produced in shoot apex transported down stem via symplast too fast for diffusion too slow for phloem sap Acid Growth Hypothesis auxin stimulated proton pumps and green expression acidify cell wall with expansions which loosen cell wall prime wall and prepare it for expansion voltage potential brings cations into cytoplasm swells with water increase turgor pressure transcription factor that produce proteins that stimulate growth too much auxin can inhibit growth synthetic form used Cytokinins adeninederivatives that stimulate cytokinesis produced in actively growing tissues roots move up via xylem sap 1 In combination with auxin promote cell division no cytokinins 11 cell elongation no division cytokinins alone have no effect 2 Control Apical Dominance auxins from apical bud suppress auxillary buds cytokinins from roots stimulate axillary buds ratio determines axillary bud initiation Ethylene response to stress mechanical pressure maturation of fruit and stimulate death 1 triple response response when shoot obstructed a slows elongation b stem thickens c curves stem horizontally 2 senescence programmed death of organs or entire plant burst of ethylene associated with apoptosis when individual cells die 3 leaf abscission loss of leaves from deciduous trees when water availability decreases 4 fruit ripening increase in sugar cell walls broken to soften it triggers ripening Photomorphogenesis change shape in response to light also use light to measure periods of days and years positive phototropism growth toward the light blue light receptors can detect blue part of light spectrum red light detected germination shadingactivates phytochrome Phytochrome conversion controls shade avoidance assess light quality Eukaryotes maintain an internal clock help regulate daily changes circadian rhythms daily biological cycles not result of specific stimulus photoperiodism a physiological response to day and night length thigomotropism plants respond to touch rubbing plants regularly inhibits growth respond to turgor pressure action potential Herbivory and Pathogens can lead throughout plant my phloem ex salicylic acid circulated throughout plant by phloem activates transduction pathway and production of resistance proteins 92315 F Lecture 15 Early Animals multicellular organisms that occur in several clades characteristics body cavities tissue organization What is an animal multicellular heterotrophs depend on other organisms to live no cell walls collagen protein support sexual reproduction diploid adults produce haploid gametes typically a agellated sperm and large egg zygote develops into a gastrula cleavage furrow division without growth blastula hollow ball of cells internal cavity blastocoel gastrulation Life Cycles may or may not involve larvae direct development offspring looks like a little version of parent eg Mammals indirect development young offspring larvae morphologically and ecologically different than the adult must

in octopus radula for feeding except in bilvalia gonochoristic separate sexes exceptions in most classes Ecdysozoa bilateral discovered by molecular phylogenetics is a new grouping of 8 phyla discovered recently based upon DNA all taxa molt their outer covering go thru ecdysis Two Diverse Phyla Phyla Anthropoda insects spiders crabs some in the lineage are extinct Phyla Nematoda 25000 known many waiting to be discovered no circulatory system Arthopods are covered by a joint exoskeleton covered by a cuticle nonliving organic later proteinchitin over epidermis thick in some places rigid hardened with calcium carbonate thin and exible in other places provides points for muscle attachment anthropods are segmented like annelids pair of appendages appendages diversified for variety

and feeding no organs for water balance exclusively marine asexual regeneration and sexual broadcast spawning 930 Early Branches of the Vertebrae Phylogeny All chorates share 4 diagonostic traits at some point in their development 1 notochord long exible rod of cells provides skeletal support something for muscles to pull against for swimming may be replaced by other skeletal elements 2 hollow dorsalnerve chord develops from ectoderm ultimately develops into the central nervous system 3 pharyngeal slits pharynx posterior to mouth water enters mouth passes thru slit suspension feeding in more derived chordates there are gills and jaws 4 postanal tail muscular tail extends past anus Two Chordate Clades All marine clades l lancelets cephatochordata cilia draw water into the mouth mucus secreted pharyngeal slits trapped food enters small suspension feeder capable of swimming partially buried 2 tunicated urochodata chordate character most apparent during larvae stage adults are sessile anchored to the ocean oor suspension feeders basketlike pharynx Sequence of traits evolved that allow us to trace the evolution of vertebrates vertebrae jaws mineralized skeleton lungs lobed finsappendages legs amniotic eggs produce milk Two clades of jawless vertebrates cyclostomes l Hagfish myxini no jaw suck up worms and dead fish cartilage with no skull reduced vertebrae excrete slime to defend themselves against predators 2 Lampreys petromyzontida j awless with rasping tongue larvae look a lot like lancelets cartilaginous vertebrae most parasitic marine freshwater species Early Vertebrate Evolution Cartilaginous vertebrae and skull provides skeletal support and spinal chord Innovations mineralized teeth and armor plates led to mineralization dorsal and ventral fins semicircular ear canals for balance Conodants lacked jaws and an internal skeleton composed of cartilage mineralized dental hooks j awless armored vertebrates Gnathostomes vertebrates with jaws j aws evolved from skeletal support between gills gnathostomes have existed for 450 million years Innovations skeleton calcified with hard matrix of calcium phosphate increased forebrain lateral line system Extant Clades chondri chthyes sharks and sting rays unmineralized skeleton buoyancy based on the amount of oil stored in the liver osteichytes bony fish mineralized skeleton buoyancy using lungs and swim bladders Osteichthyans Gnathostomes with bony skeleton include bony fishtetra pods lungs are modified swim bladder gases move into and out of blood attened bony scales glands secrete slime Sacropterygians lobefinds pectoral and pelvic fins with rod shaped bones surrounded by muscle axial limbs support walking in the shallow parts of water Three extant clades Actinistia coelacanths Dipnoi lungfishes South America tetrapods four legs amphibians Tetrapods sarcopenteryglands evolved legs to provide supportlocomotion accumulation of features of 10 million years eg Acanthostega had limbs but were too weak to leave the water lots of fossils demonstrate the transition from water to land Amphibians oldest tetrapod lineage three orders 1 Order Urodela salamander 2 Order Ahura frogs and toads 3 Order Apoda aecllians no legs Amphibious live on land and in the water some fully aquatic some fully terrestrial often aquatic larval stage tadpole undergo metamorphosis eggs dry out quickly if not kept wet or moist external fertilization 102 egg has four extraembryonic membranes not part of the body of the embryo grows from tissue layers out from the embryo able to survive without water analogous to a seed extant species that utilize this reptiles and egg laying mammals A key adaption to terrestrial life was the amniotic egg 4 extraembryonic membranes 1 amnion holds embryo in uid buffers from shock and drying out 2 chorion gas exchange 3 allantois creates compartment for waste also functions in gas exchange 4 yolk sac nutrient storage delivered via White blood cells albumen egg White greater nutrients than yolk shell hard like chicken egg or leathery like an alligator egg reptiles lay eggs externally but differ in hardness most mammals have lost their shelled eggs and raise an embryo in the uterus amniotes developed other terrestrial adaptations skinless permeable to water and gases Extant Amniotes reptiles and synapsids What is a reptile arose 310
