62% of total energy of glucose that is not used to make ATP is… 9.2 – released as heat
Recognize the dynamics of a population and analyze the consequences of the loss of organisms in its food supply or the impact of the loss of one of its predators. Explain this… – Loss of a predator would cause an increase in the prey population that would lead to a loss of food and then destroy the prey as well.
Placental – Type of mammal that gives birth to young that have fully developed inside the mother's uterus until their body systems are fully functional and can live independently of their mother's body
What are the fours phases of Mitosis in order? – Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, and Telophase
mitochondria – Plural for mitochondrion.. bean-shaped organelle that supplies energy to the cell and has its own ribosomes and DNA…
manipulated variable – variable that is deliberately changed
Heredity – The study of how traits are passed from parent to offspring.
The endocrine structure that regulates the anterior pituitary’s production of multiple hormones is:
crenation – This happens when a cell shrinks and shrivels; can result in cell death if severe.
Interactions – The ways that the various members of an ecosystem affect one another. Includes predator/prey relationships, mutualism and commensalism, parasitism, competition/cooperation, mating, etc.
Loam – A mixture of gravel, sand, silt, clay, and organic matter
Genetic information – The code found in DNA. The "blueprint" for producing an individual organism. Can also refer to RNA, chromosomes.
Interphase – Period of the cell cycle in which a cell grows in size and carries on metabolism
fundamental niche – The niche species could potentially occupy.
Cellular Respiration – Process that releases energy by breaking down glucose and other food molecules in the presence of oxygen
The endоcrine structure thаt regulаtes the аnteriоr pituitary’s prоduction of multiple hormones is:
ocean acidification – decreasing pH of ocean waters due to absorption of excess atmospheric carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels
What is the primary purpose of the kidney? – The primary purpose of the kindney is to regulate salt and water concentration in the blood
A trait controlled by two or more genes. Eye color in humans or height in humans. – Polygenic trait
