2 Response to PBS NOVA, “Triumph of Life: The 4 billion year war” movie episode one 52 minutes, 4 billion year warepisode two arms raceepisode three mating gameEpisode six the survivors
3 Population—group of individuals of same species, breeding together on a normal basis Biological species—organisms of the same type who can breed together under natural conditions and produce healthy, fertile offspring Evolution—change in the % of individuals with particular variations in traits (alleles) over time—eventually may lead to new species developing Natural selection—conditions allow some individuals in a population—with certain variations—to leave more offspring than others; over time, the population’s characteristics become more like the survivors. Speciation—formation of a new species from a group separated (reproductively isolated) from its original group & affected by different natural selectors for a long time Genetic drift—change in % alleles in a population versus its original population after it is separated (or after its size is decreased)—usually refers to adaptation in a small group Adaptation—increase % of “fit” alleles due to natural selection
4 1 What process is referred to as “the 4 billion year war”? 20photosynthesisCell respirationDNA replicationEvolutionPredation
5 2 Why is evolution referred to as “a 4 billion year war”? Only individuals who compete successfully for limited resources pass on their genesAnimals fight to find mates and to establish their territorySurvival requires fightingPeople have always fought other social groups
6 3 Scientific evidence (radioactive dating) shows that the earth is about: 6000—10,000 years old4 –5 million years old4—5 billion years old10—15 billion years old
7 4 For nearly 1 billion years after earth formed, no cells existed on the earth because it was: Too coldToo hot
8 5 The first organisms to form from the molecules in the “primordial soup” of the earth’s oceans were:virusesEubacteria then archaebacteriaprotistsfungiplantsanimalsEubacteriaArchaebacteriaProtistaPlantaeFungiAnimalia
9 6 True or False. All other kingdoms are likely to have formed due to mutations in the DNA of the early bacteria. These mutations were harmless to the bacteria that survived, but over many generations as more and more harmless mutations were passed on, new alleles and even new genes formed. These new genes gave the survivors carrying them greater success in competing for limited resources. New genes that formed new kinds of bodies led to development of new kingdoms.TrueFalse
11 8 True or False. Even the newest species on earth are likely to share many genes in common with bacteria because they are the ancestors of all kingdoms of organisms.TrueFalsebacteria
12 A population is a group where are members are the same species and where all normally breed together. A population can adapt to its surroundings differently from another to its surroundings without giving rise to a new species. If the populations are prevented from breeding together –reproductively isolated—many generations, then a new species does sometimes arise from some of the different populations. E.g., Genus (Strix) species (occidentalis) & populations that are still members of the same species but differently adapted (caurina versus lucida) versus longer separated snowy owls.Strix nebulosa is a different species in the same genus, adapted to more northern, colder habitats
13 For example, many different species of the genus Strix (e. g For example, many different species of the genus Strix (e.g., Strix occidentalis & Strix seloputo & Strix ocellata) have arisen as populations of the same species become isolated and adapt—by genetic drift—to their new environments. Natural selection (survival of the fittest) causes adaptation due to genetic drift—increased % of population members having the more fit alleles and genes.
14 Sometimes after long periods of time isolated into different habitats, the separated populations become so different that they need to be classified into a new genus. Bubo scandiacus Genus Bubo species scandiasis Bubo bengalensis Genus Bubo species bengalensisFound in India
15 Eventually, isolated long enough and adapted to different environments and types of competition for resources, all groups of organisms can arise from a common ancestor. Grouping organisms by their evolutionary relationships—as seen by their similarities in traits—is called taxonomy or classification.
16 Did King Phillip Come Over For Great Spaghetti? Classification or Taxonomy—grouping organisms into smaller and smaller categories according to how related they are through evolution and to their trait similarities:Did King Phillip Come Over For Great Spaghetti?

26 14 In the movie, ______ were the first animals thought to occupy land—after photosynthetic organisms produced enough oxygen for ozone O3 to form.Flightless insectsFlying insectsAncestors of insects, the horseshoe crabsAmphibiansReptilesBirdsMammals
27 15 The horseshoe crabs’ who had more fit traits left more offspring than other members of their population, so over time the fit alleles increased. That is,A new species better adapted to life in the ocean aroseNatural selection increased the number of fit crabs, laying eggs on land, compared to the number still laying eggs in the ocean.Genetic drift resulted in new species who could survive on landLand dwelling arthropods evolved from horseshoe crab descendentsAll of the above

33 1. Scientists have hypothesized for years that Earth’s continents once formed a single landmass that broke apart and became the continents as we know them today. The model below shows the landmasses (Gondwanaland) as they started to break apart to form South America, Africa, Antarctica, India, and Australia. What evidence best supports the model proposed above?A. Igneous rocks have been found on all the continents.B. Similar fossils have been found in parts of Africa and South America.C. Australia has marsupial species that are not found on other continents.D. Indications of sea level changes have been recorded on all the continents.index
34 2. The following diagram is found in an evolutionary biology textbook 2. The following diagram is found in an evolutionary biology textbook. This branching tree diagram is most likely used to represent the theory that suggestsA. new species arise throughout time following rounds of mass extinction.B. all species share a common ancestor and that change occurs through time.C. speciation occurs very quickly with long periods of no change in between.D. all species originated during

37 Use the information to answer questions 4-6 Use the information to answer questions Butterflies The monarch is a bright orange butterfly with black stripes. It acquires toxins from the milkweed plants it eats as a caterpillar. Adult monarchs retain these chemicals. Experiments have shown that blue jays that eat poisonous monarchs become sick within 15 to 30 minutes. The viceroy is also an orange, black-striped butterfly, which is difficult to distinguish from a monarch. Viceroy larvae consume primarily non-toxic poplar or willow tree leaves. Scientists have long suggested that viceroys have avoided predation by mimicking the monarch’s coloration pattern. New evidence indicates that this may not be the case. Descriptions of two sets of experiments with monarchs and viceroys are given below. Experiment 1 (1958): Blue jays that were raised in captivity were offered viceroys. The hungry jays devoured the viceroys. The same jays were offered monarchs. After eating one or two monarchs, the blue jays refused to eat monarchs or viceroys. All butterflies’ wings were intact when given to the birds. Experiment 2 (1991): Researchers fed the wingless abdomens of monarch, viceroy, queen, and non-toxic control butterflies to red-winged blackbirds and monitored the percentage of each type eaten. While 98% of control butterflies and 70% of queen butterflies were eaten, only 40% of viceroys and 40% of monarchs were eaten.index
38 4. The diagram shows a partial classification scheme for monarch and viceroy butterflies. Based on this diagram, monarchs and viceroys belong to the samegenus.family.species.subfamilies.index
39 5. What statement regarding the similarities between monarchs and viceroys best agrees with Charles Darwin’s theory of natural selection at the time of its publication in 1859?Monarch butterflies are an older species than viceroy butterflies.Similarities between monarch and viceroy butterflies result from their diets.Viceroy butterflies avoid predation due to their resemblance to monarch butterflies.Variations in DNA sequences are responsible for the similarity between monarch and viceroy butterflies.
40 The larger bird population has a small gene pool. 6. A scientist studying a large population of a particular species of bird concludes that monarch butterflies are toxic to that bird species. However, upon studying a second, smaller population of the same bird species, he discovers that the second population is able to eat monarchs without becoming sick. How could the scientist best explain his findings?The larger bird population has a small gene pool.Monarchs are only toxic if eaten in large quantities.Genetic drift has occurred in the smaller population.Natural selection has increased populations of non-toxic butterflies.index
