Bfhs Biology Chapter 1

autoimmune disease – An immunological disorder in which the immune system attacks the body's own molecules.
Trophic Level – Each step in a food chain or food web
Daughter cells are not genetically identical to mother cell – Meiosis
G2 Phase – Gap 2 phase, where growth occurs again
recombination frequency – With respect to two given genes, the number of recombinant progeny from a mating divided by the total number of progeny. Recombinant progeny carry combinations of alleles different from those in either of the parents as a result of crossing over during meiosis.
nonpolar – No partial charges. Do not mix with water.
isolating mechanism – feature in behavior, morphology or genetics that prevents mating or breeding between species
Diploid cell – A cell with chromosomes that come in homologous pairs
Which of the epithelial tissue diagrams represents simple cuboidal epithelium?
nucleotide – the building block of a nucleic acid, consisting of a five-carbon sugar covalently bonded to a nitrogenous base and a phosphate group
help carry molecules over the membrane that are too large to pass – What role do carrier proteins play in facilitated diffusion?
Porifera – is a phylum that contains sponges.
cells – Highly organized, tiny structures with thin membrane coverings. The basic unit of biology.
analogous structure – in biology, similarity of function and superficial resemblance of structures that have different origins. the wings of a fly, a moth, and a bird are analogous because they developed independently as adaptations to a common function—flying.
mass number – sum of neutrons and protons in an atom's nucleus
Which оf the epitheliаl tissue diаgrаms represents simple cubоidal epithelium?
Analyze Data/Results – may include graphs, charts, tables, etc,
skepticism – trait that enables a person to question the validity of claims
The location of cellular respiration
a. Mitochondria
b. Cytoplasm
c. Chlorophyll
d. A and B – a. Mitochondria
b. Cytoplasm
Why do classification systems change over time? – New ways of classification are found (e.g. DNA sequencing).
Ammonification – the process in which decomposers convert nitrogen compounds from waste or dead organisms into ammonium
