Most if not all of the key vocabulary from these sections are compiled all together here As a study method practice defining each in your own words and then APPLY themfigure out which topics they connect to and in what context they should be used 1th 3 ll u l r titan the idea that individuals can change their traits during their lifetime and pass on to offspring species evolve in a progressive manner species begin simple and at the bottom of the chain then evolve to become better and more complex progressive evolution individuals with more advantageous heritable traits produce more offspring and survive more than others who don t have the trait the ability to survive and reproduce a heritable trait that increases fitness and is passed to offspring llfllm ltiim when an individual

genes that influence many different traits traits that vary on a range and don t necessarily fall into separate categories describes a trait as either autosomal or sexlinked and gives a particular

developmental structural vestigial traits often suggest common ancestor with other species with the same traits geographic landscapelocation of species geological time scale and fossils how do these deny special creation or Lamarckian evolution OOOOO variation amongst a population heritable traits able to pass to offspring different success in reproducing amongst individuals individuals with certain heritable traits best suited for the environment have more offspring and survive better 0 heritable variation leads to differential reproductive success adaptations vs acclimations o adaptations are not always good 0 how are adaptations and fitness related To test this theory 0000 O 0 test to see if danNin s four postulates occur in a given situationenvironment to test for natural selection simply count number of fertile offspring with the heritable trait differential reproductive success allele frequencies change in populations not individuals A39 natural selection can eventually exhaust variation His initial hypotheses o blending inheritancewhat evidence denied this 0 inheritance of acquired characteristics Lamarckian evolution His tests 0 why did he chose to use peas why did he test 7 different traits o began with first crossing pure line parents to yield all heterozygous F1 generations then allowed F1s to self fertilize and create F2 generation 0 What was significant about the 31 ratio he observed in the F2 generations Which of his initial hypotheses did it deny 0 used reciprocal crosses to confirm his results were not related to sex of the plant 0

rules 0 process component meiosis o we can find the location of genes on chromosomes discovery of sex chromosomes and linked genes linked genes violate principle of independent segregation incomplete complete and codominance o alleles are not always recessive or dominant and often multiple alleles will code for a trait multiple allelism and lead to polymorphic traits 0 many genes can also influence more than one trait phenotypes is definitely influenced by genotype but also is a result of the individual s environment such as environment influencing an embryo as it develops 0 this is referred to as o is when one trait is controlled by the alleles of two or more different genes basically a trait is not only affect by the different alleles but the different genes AND different alleles of each occurs in discrete traits one allele can be associated with different phenotypes quantitative traits traits that don t fall in a distinct category have a normal distribution in the population Mendel worked with discrete traits but many are not discretequantitative instead in order to determine whether offspring are at risk for disease must know the mode of transmission how the genes are passed on ie autosomal or sex linked o pedigrees help organize who in the family is affected or a carrier for disease by recording relationships and phenotypes heterozygous individuals with a recessive allele for a heritable disease is a carrierthey are not affected but they can still pass on the trait to offspring 0 Note only females can be carriers for Xlinked genes males only have one X chromosome therefore cannot mask a recessive allele that leads to disease ad Xlinked recessive traits often skips generations 0 recessive autosomal phenotypes only show up in offspring if both parents have the recessive allele and pass it on STUDY QUESTIONS What is the difference between a hypothesis and prediction How do linked genes violate Mendel s principles Which one do they violate What is the pattern and process components of Chromosome Theory of Inheritance What is the difference between linked and sexlinked genes Give an example of an adaptation vs acclimation in a particular scenario gt1gtgt1gtgt1gtgt1gt What steps in meiosis 1 or 2 support the idea of independent assortment and independent segregation What is the one key difference between meiosis 1 and meiosis 2 Which division is similar to mitosis What are Danvin s four postulates Try and explain in about 5 words for each postulate If the X and Y chromosomes are considered homologs even though they differ in genetic material what might be a good explanation in terms of evolution why they pair up together but are not the same What are the three types of dominance and how do they differ Mendel initially hypothesized about blending inheritance What else is this concept similar to Why Hint think types of dominance How does the mechanism of meiosis explain inheritance In what stage of meiosis do the sister chromatids changeare no longer exact copies How do they change What are 4 key pieces of evidence that support the theory of evolution What is the key difference between Lamarck s and DanNin s ideas of evolution If you study a type of fish where n22 how many chromosomes would you see in a nonreproductive cell how many in a gamete what is the haploid number What the pattern and process components of Lamarckian evolution Compare and contrast special creation Lamarckian evolution and natural selection
