1 Biology 2 Midterm Review
Miller and Levine

2 Which scientist observed variations in the characteristics of animals and plants on the different islands of the Galapagos? James Hutton Charles Darwin Charles Lyell Thomas Malthus

3 In addition to observing living organisms, Darwin studied the preserved remains of ancient organisms called _______. homologous structures adaptations fossils vestigial organs

4 Which of the following ideas proposed by Lamarck was later found to be incorrect?
acquired characteristics can be inherited all species were descended from other species living things change over time organisms are adapted to their environment

5 Differences among individuals of a species are referred to as __________.
natural variation natural selection fitness adaptation

6 Which would an animal breeder use to produce cows that give more milk?
overproduction genetic isolation acquired characteristics artificial selection

7 An inherited characteristic that increases an organism’s ability to survive and reproduce in its specific environment is called a(an) _______. vestigial organ speciation adaptation radiation

8 The concept that each living species has descended, with changes, from other species over time is called ____. descent with modifications artificial selection theory of acquired characteristics natural selection

9 Fitness is a result of ______.
adaptations common descent homologies variation

10 Which of the following is an important concept in Darwin’s theory by natural selection?
struggle for existence survival of the fittest descent with modification all of the above

11 A farmer’s use of the best livestock for breeding is an example of _____
natural selection artificial selection common descent fitness

12 Please complete 11 -18 of the review.

13 The combined genetic information of all members of a particular population forms a _______
gene pool phenotype niche population

14 The success of an organism in surviving and reproducing is a measure of its _____.
gene pool fitness polygenic speciation

15 Traits that are controlled by more than one gene, such as human height, are known as ______
single-gene traits recessive traits polygenic traits dominant traits

16 The type of selection in which individuals of average size have greater fitness than small or large individuals is called ______ disruptive selection stabilizing selection directional selection genetic drift

17 The type of selection in which individuals at one end of a curve have the highest fitness is called ___ stabilizing selection disruptive selection directional selection the founder effect

18 A change in allele frequency that results from the migration of a small subgroup of a population is called ___ natural selection the Hardy-Weinberg principle the founder effect genetic equilibrium

19 A group of individuals that interbreed and have fertile offspring make up a __
gene pool species population genetic drift

20 The evolution of Darwin’s finches is an example of _________.
equilibrium stabilizing selection speciation artificial selection

21 In a certain population, disruptive selection is occurring
In a certain population, disruptive selection is occurring. In this population, which is most likely to survive? organisms with average traits organisms with extreme traits organisms that are small none of the above

22 What type of selection does this graph show?

23 Woolybeasts with long snouts tend to survive better on an island that has burrowing termites. Over time, the woolybeast population consists of individuals with extremely long snouts. This is an example of: disruptive selection stabilizing selection random selection directional selection

24 Speciation occurs when ______.
population becomes geographically isolated a population becomes temporally isolated a population becomes behaviorally isolated all of the above

25 When two species reproduce at different times, it is called ______
speciation geographic isolation temporal isolation genetic drift

26 A situation in which a population’s allele frequencies remain relatively constant is called ____
polygenic traits a gene pool fitness genetic equilibrium

27 Does this graph show artificial, disruptive, directional or stabilizing selection?

28 Which graph shows single gene trait and polygenic trait?

29 Sedimentary rocks form when layers of small particles are compressed __.
in the atmosphere in mountains in a snowy field under water

30 Radioactive dating of rock samples ____
is a method of absolute dating is a method of relative dating forms a geologic column forms a geologic time scale

31 Half life is the length of time required for half the atoms in a radioactive sample to __.
double expand decay be created

32 Earth’s first atmosphere contained little or no ________.
hydrogen cyanide nitrogen hydrogen sulfide oxygen

33 In Miller and Urey’s experiments with the origin of life, electric sparks were passed through a mixture of gases to ____ simulate temperature sterilize the gases simulate sunlight simulate lightning
