Exam 2 Dr. Carl S. Lieb Exam II Study Guide Starting with Chapter 20: Eukaryotes 1) Eukaryotes have less metabolic diversity than Prokaryotes. Includes Protista, Plantae, Fungi, and Animalia. 2) Symbiosis: two different species that live in close association. a. Mutualism- both species benefit b. Commensalism- one benefits, one doesn’t benefit or get harmed c. Parasitism- one species benefits, the other is harmed 3)Protista Phytoplankton- photoautotrophs in aquatic systems Zooplankton- heterotrophs in aquatic systems Algae- plant-like protists Protozoa- animal-like protists Slime Molds- fungi-like protists Thallus- the body of a multicellular protest Reproduction by binary fission or sexual conjugation. Gametophyte: produces gametes that fuse to create zygotes (1n) Sporophyte: produces haploid spores by meiosis (2n) Syngamy: identical gametes Fertilization: different gametes Lineages Alveolates: Have alveoli under the cell membrane a) Dinoflagellates: phosphorescent, create red tides, aquatic b) Apicomplexans: endoparasites. Ex: Plasmodium causes malaria. c) Ciliates: have cilia. Contain a macronucleus (multiple copies) & micronucleus (diploid, divides by binary fission). Reproduce by conjugation. Ex: Paramecium Stramenopiles: aka brown plant kingdom a) Diatoms: marine, photosynthetic, lack flagella, have a shell outside of cell membrane (a test) b) Brown algae: Multicellular, marine, photosynthetic. Ex: kelp c) Water molds: Non-photosynthetic, heterotrophic, fungi-like. Ex: potato blight fungus, ick on fish Rhizaria: Amoeba-like, chemotrophic. Use pseudopods for movement & food capturing. a) Cercozoans: many habitats, chloroplasts are derived from green alga. b) Foraminiferans: aquatic, must have a test of calcium carbonate except those on deep ocean. c) Radiolarians: radial symmetry & glassy exoskeleton Exam 2 Dr. Carl S. Lieb Excavates a) Diplomonads: lack mitochondria, multiple flagella, two haploid nuclei. Ex: hiker’s diarrhea b) Parabasalids: includes all parasites. Ex: Trichomonas Vaginalis (Std) c) Heteroloboseans: 2 life cycle stages. 1-Amoeboid cells. 2-Flagellated cells. Non- parasitic. Ex: brain eating amoeba. d) Euglenids: photoautotrophic, can become heterotrophic, aquatic. e) Kinetoplastids: parasitic, kinetoplast-containing mitochondria. Ex: Tryponosomes- blood parasites Amoebozoa: move by pseudopods, eat by phagocytosis a) Typical amoebas: free-living, single celled b) Parasites: Dysentery c) Slime molds: fungus-like. Plasmodial or cellular. Ophisthokonts: Fungi and animals in their derived forms 4) Fungi Coenocytic: cells within filaments have holes that allow cytoplasm to flow between cells Mycelium: the body of a fungus Hyphae: filaments that make up the mycelium Haustoria: hyphae specialized to penetrate the cells of other organisms Heterokaryon: cells have to haploid nuclei Karyogamy: produces a zygote that reproduces by meiosis Yeasts: unicellular fungi. Not a taxon. Lineages Microsporidians: unicellular parasites, infect insects and vertebraes. Chytrids: aquatic, cause chytridiomycosis (frogs) Zygomycetes: haploid mycelium. Reproduce my fusing gametangia. Glomeromycetes: have mycorrhizae, sugars moved by phloem. Ascomycetes: have a sac in which karyogamy occurs. Includes penicillium, pathogens and lichens. Basidiomycetes: long dikaryotic stage, includes edible and deadly mushrooms. 5) Plantae Red algae: marine, red color caused by phycoerythrin, enhance coral reefs by secreting calcium carbonate Chlorophytes: chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b, Ex: sea lettuce Embyophyta: land plants a) Liveworts: liver- shaped gametophyte b) Mosses: swimming sperm, homosporous, can happen in polar regions c) Hornwarts: similar to liverworts but horn-shaped d) Lycophytes: vascular, swimming sperm, can be homo/heterosporous Exam 2 Dr. Carl S. Lieb e) Horsetails: homosporous, vascular f) True Ferns: homosporous, vascular, swimming sperm, primary growth. -sori: clusters of sporangia. -prothallus- what grows from a spore g) Seed plants: Gymnosperms (cones) Angiosperms (flowering plants) 6) Angiosperm Vocabulary Sepals: enclose and protect floral plants Petals: inside sepals. Stamens: inside petals. Consists of stalk (filament) and a sac with microsporangia (anther) Carpels: fused into a pistil. The base has an ovary that contains ovules. The top has a sticky pat (stigmata) that makes pollen stick. Complete flower: if a species has all four floral organs (sepals, petals, stamens, carpels) Incomplete flower: if something is missing. Ex: grass is missing petals Perfect flower: if a species has flowers with stamens and carpels Imperfect flower (dioecious): if a species only has pistil and not stamens (or vice versa) Monoecious: have male and female flowers. Ex: corn 7) Angiosperm Lineage Amborella: small group Water lilies: aquatic Star Anise: small group Magnoliids: trees in southeastern US characterized by white flowers Monocots: have one seed leaf (monocotyledonous). Include grasses, lilies, yuccas, etc. Eudicots: two seed leaves (dicotyledonous). True dicot. 8) Double fertilization in Angiosperms. Formation of female gametophyte: 1-Meiosis occurs in each ovule (megasporangium) forming four haploid megaspores 2- 3 of the 4 megaspores die 3-Remaining megaspore divides and produces a 7 cell, 8 nucleate gametophyte (embryo sac) 4-One of the cells is larger and has 2 nuclei (polar nuclei) 5-One of the cells is exposed to a part of the embryo sac (the microphyle). This one acts as an egg cell. Formation of male gametopyte: 1-Wall of microspore thickens 2-Divides to produce a 2 cell, 2 nucleus stage called pollen grain. One nucleus is the generative and the other is the tube nucleus. 3-Pollen grains are released to be transported by wind or animals Chapter 24: The Plant Body Meristems: Areas on the plant that constantly grow. Apical Meristems- tips of stems or roots Exam 2 Dr. Carl S. Lieb Indeterminate growth- continuous growth Pluripotent :Able to develop into any type of plant cell if damage occurs Toripotent: A cell from anywhere can be used to generate a new clone. 9) The Root System • Organs: roots • Functions: Absorbs water & minerals, and converts sugar into starch and stores it. The Shoot System • Organs: stems and leaves • Functions: leaves form sporophylls for reproduction, stems support plant against gravity, orient it towards the sunlight, connect leaves and roots, may be photosynthetic. 10)The Dermal Tissue System Forms epidermis. • Stomata- holes that allow gas exchange • Trichomes- leaf hairs, protect against UV rays, and used for mechanical defenses from herbivory insects • Root hairs- cylindrical projections off the roots that increase absorptive surface • Cuticle- waxy layer covering the surface of the plant body to reduce evaporative water loss 11)The Ground Tissue System Parenchyma- abundant. In leaves/stems they perform photosynthesis. In roots they store starch, in seeds it stores proteins. • Collenchyma- elongated cells with cell walls that are thick and thin. Provide structural support to stems. • Sclerenchyma- elongated cells (fibers) or short/stubby cells (sclerids) with thick cell walls that contain lignin. • Lignin- gives rigidity to stems 12)The Vascular Tissue System Transports substances within plant. • Xylem- transports water and nutrients to the plant from the roots (most cells are dead but they still function) • Phloem- composed of living cells, transports sugars to where they will be used for energy or storage (sinks). Can carry substances in different directions. Arranged into vascular bundle Exam 2 Dr. Carl S. Lieb 13)Primary/Secondary Growth Dicots and conifers can have secondary growth by the vascular cambium which is between the xylem and the phloem. • Cork cambium- cork cells that waterproof and produce bark. • Tree rings- produced because xylem cells during the summer are longer than during the spring/winter which creates growth layers. • Girdling- severs the phloem and destroys the ability to pick up water. Carving is hurtful but repairable by pluripotent cells.
