Evolution Test Review
Use SNB pages 67 and 68.
This assignment is to be done in two equal sized columns. To earn 45%, copy the question and write the answer after it in the left column. The sentences before each question will contain the answer to the question. To earn the remaining 55%, combine the question with the answer to make a statement. Write this statement in the right column. Your statements should be similar to the statements in assignment #44, but the order is different.

A gene for a trait could mutate producing a new allele. This mutated allele could cause a new trait to appear and increase the genetic variation of the species. The idea of macro-evolution is that many of these mutations could give rise to a new species.
1. What could cause an new species to evolve?

Isolation occurs when a species is separated into two groups by water, mountain ranges, or canyons. The environmental conditions of two separated groups may be different. These two groups may become different species when they adapt in different ways to these different conditions.
2. What may two isolated groups adapting to diverse environmental conditions become?

Since food and resources are limited, the members of a species must compete with each other to survive. Due to genetic variations in a species, some members may out compete others. The organisms better adapted to their environment by certain traits could out compete others and be more likely to survive.
3. What could limited resources in an area lead to?

The beaks of finches on the Galapagos Islands differed from one island to the next. The size and shape of finch beaks were adapted to the food eaten. Insect-eating finches had needle-like beaks, while seed-eating finches had strong, wide beaks. An adaption is a trait that helps an organism survive and reproduce in its environment.
4. What were the beaks of the Galapagos finches adapted to?

Darwin proposed that evolution occurs through a mechanism called natural selection. He reasoned that factors in nature could select traits like people do when selectively breeding animals. In natural selection, individuals that are better adapted to their environment are more likely to survive and produce.
5. What was Darwin's mechanism for causing evolution?

Limb bones of vertebrates are similar. Embryos of vertebrates are kind of similar. Also similarities in DNA sequences might indicate a common ancestor. Evolutionary relations ships are bases on similarities in body structures, early development, and DNA sequences.
6. What evidence is used to determine evolutionary relationships?

A species of grass is adapted to a wet climate. If the environment the grass lives in becomes much dryer the grass will die. When all the grass of this species is dead, the grass has become extinct.
7. What will most likely happen to swamp grass if the swamp drys out?

Genetic variations in a species may allow the species to adapt. If the environment or predators where a species lives changes some variations may help individuals survive. Species may not be able to adapt if the change is too much. When a species can't adapt to an environmental change, it will become extinct.
8. When does the extinction of a species occur?

A classification tree has types of organisms at the end of its branches. The branches, trunk, and stump of the tree represent probable common ancestors based on the theory of evolution. Organisms on branches close together are theorized to have a closer relationship or common ancestor.
9. What indicates that two organism are more closely related on a classification tree?

Chromosome Inheritance (Cornell style notes / SNB page 46-48)
1. Remember: An organism’s traits come from pairs of genes and different forms of a gene are called alleles.
Sutton observed that:
2. The body cells of grasshoppers had 24 chromosomes, but their sex cells only had half as many chromosomes (12 chromosomes).
3. When a sperm and egg joined during fertilization, the grasshopper egg that formed had 24 chromosomes. 12 + 12 = 24
4. Grasshopper offspring have the same number of chromosomes as their parents because half of them come from each parent during sexual reproduction.
5. From Mendel’s work, Sutton knew that one allele in a pair comes from the female parent and the other allele comes from the male parent.
6. Sutton realized that paired alleles were carried on paired chromosomes.
7. Chromosome theory of inheritance:
– genes are carried from parents to their offspring on chromosomes
– one chromosome in each pair comes from each parent
8. Meiosis is the process that reduces the chromosome number by half to form sex cells.
9. During meiosis, the chromosome pairs separate and are distributed to two different cells reducing their number by half.
10. Sexual reproduction produces offspring that inherit half their genes/chromosomes from each parent; making them genetically different from either parent.

2. Chromosomes are pieces of DNA in the nuclei of each cell. Humans have 23 pair.
3. Genes are a sequence of bases in a chromosome that code for a trait.

4. Chromosome pairs – one comes from each parent to make up the pair.
5. Sexual reproduction results in offspring that are genetically different from their parents.
6. Asexual reproduction results in offspring that are genetically the same as their parents.
7. Alleles are different forms of a gene.
8. Organisms get one allele from each of their parents.
9. An organism's alleles can be the same or different.
10. In purebreds, alleles are the same.
11. In hybrids, alleles are different and the dominant allele is responsible for the trait.
10. Punnett Squares are used to determine the probability of alleles in offspring.

Part 2
Mendel's Work (Use SNB pages 37 & 38. Write as Cornell notes)
1. Heredity is the passing of physical characteristics from parents to offspring.
2. Traits are physical characteristics that can be passed from parents to offspring.
3. Genetics is the study of heredity.
4. Mendel is considered the father of genetics.
5. A new organism begins to form when male and female sex cells join in the process called fertilization.
6. A purebred organism is the offspring of many generations that have the same trait.
7. Mendel’s Experiment:P Generation – In the Parent Generation, a tall purebred was cross with a short purebred.Mendel’s Experiment:
8. 1st Generation – All of the offspring were tall. None of the offspring were short even though one parent was short.Mendel’s Experiment:
9. 2nd Generation – Offspring occurred in the ratio of three tall plants to one short plant.
10. The short trait of one parent of the parent generation did not occur in the 1st generation, but reappeared in the 2nd generation.
11. The factors that determine traits are called genes.
12. P Generation:One parent had two tall genes.The other parent had two short genes.
13. F1 Generation:All offspring have one tall and one short gene.
14. F2 Generation: Three possibilities:Can get a tall gene from both parents.Can get a tall from one parent and a short form the other.Can get a short gene from each parent.
15 Summary:
  • Traits are controlled by two genes.
  • One gene comes from the female parent and the other comes from the male parent.
  • One gene of a pair can hide or dominate the trait of another gene.
  • Offspring receiving two hidden or recessive gene will have the hidden trait
