BSC 201103 1 l A Study questions lecture 25 Spring 2006 In lecture we discussed two alternative de nitions of a species Explain one of these de nitions and describe an advantage and a disadvantage of this de nition Using Mayr s Biological Species Concept it is possible for plants to create new species in a single generation How can this happen Give one example ofa prezygotic reproductive isolation mechanism Give one example ofa postzygotic reproductive isolation mechanism BSC 201103 Spring 2006 Study questions for lecture 8 1 Describe one ofthe examples from lecture of how the external environment can affect animal development What is the signal from the external environment and what are the developmental changes that result from that signal Draw a graph that shows the relationship between the signal and the response 2 Give two examples of cellcell interactions during development 3 An exercise to help you put what you have learned about development together Draw a concept map using as many of development terms below as possible If putting them all together seems too hard start by grouping terms into smaller maps You can use arrows to join terms boxes or brackets to group terms etc For example a concept map of DNA RNA Protein Transcription translation gene expression might look like this transcription DNA RNA m Protein Gene expression Note terms that are hard to t in or groups of terms that won t link together Those are likely to be topics that you don t fully understand yet and should ask Dr UndenNood or your TAs about List of development terms to map Here is an example of a concept map of terms from cell structure and function not something you have to know for the exam as an example of a slightly different way to use a map to organize what you have learned
