1 Evolution Unit Test Review

2 Heavy fur of the Snow Leopard Match the adaptation to the benefits listed

3 Cockle burs that hook onto passing animal fur Match the adaptation to the benefits listed

4 Wing-like shape of maple seeds Match the adaptation to the benefits listed

5 White fur and large feet of a Snowshoe Hare Match the adaptation to the benefits listed

6 Thick fat layer on seals Match the adaptation to the benefits listed

7 Web of a house spider Match the adaptation to the benefits listed

8 Light-colored peppered moths in unpolluted forests Match the adaptation to the benefits listed

9 A male cardinal’s bright red feathers Match the adaptation to the benefits listed

10 Multiple Choice Which of the following is an example of variation? A. Traces or remains ancient organisms B. Light and dark forms of the peppered moth C. Mimicry D. Bird wings and insect wings

11 Multiple Choice Traits that allow an organism to survive and produce offspring are called A. variations B. adaptations C. Vestigial structures D. Homologous structures

12 Multiple Choice Scientists use all of the following to support the theory of evolution through natural selection EXCEPT A. Fossil evidence B. Comparative anatomy and homologous structures C. Vestigial structures D. Genetic engineering

13 Multiple Choice Darwin’s theory of evolution is based upon the concept of A. Selective breeding B. mutations C. Natural selection D. hybridization

14 Multiple Choice DNA copying errors can cause changes in the traits of organisms. These copying errors are called A. Homologous structures B. genes C. variations D. mutations

15 Multiple Choice Vestigial structures A. Include root hairs in plants and the elaborate camouflage of certain spiders B. Are beneficial adaptations C. No longer exist D. Have no function in present organisms

16 Multiple Choice The preserved remains or traces of an organism that lived in the past A. mutations B. fossils C. vestigal structures D. adaptations

17 Multiple Choice Evolution is best defined as A. Gradual change in a species over time B. The passing of traits from one generation to the next C. The process of one species turning into another species D. Differences between members of a species

18 Multiple Choice The spotted touch-me-not is a flowering plant. It has seed pods that burst open when touched and forcefully eject their seeds. This adaptation is beneficial because it D. Conserves the plant’s energy C. Helps disperse the seeds of the plant A. Causes genetic changes in the plant B. Attracts insects that pollinate the plant

19 Multiple Choice Which of the following is an example of mimicry? A. Elephants traveling in herds B. Zebras confusing predators using optical illusions C. Stick insects (walking sticks) that resembles sticks and twigs D. Swordfish that resemble a Renaissance sword

20 Multiple Choice Bird predators eat high percentages of light colored moths in forests where there are high levels of pollution. Dark colored peppered moths are, therefore, better adapted to survive and reproduce. This is an example D. Artificial selection C. mutations A. Natural selection B. macroevolution

21 Multiple Choice Similarities in the bone structure of a chimpanzee’s arm and of a bird’s wing A. Show that the chimpanzees are an older species than birds B. Provide evidence of a common ancestor for the species C. Are an example of variations within a species D. Are an example of vestigial structures
