Supporting Facts: When industrial gas discharge such as sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides combine with water it creates biologically harmful rain that is caused by pollutants released by human activity
Related Words: Rain, snow, sleet, fog, acid precipitation
Supporting Facts: Occurs when a person is exposed to a live pathogen and triggers the immune system to produce antibodies
Related Words: Acquired immunity, passive immunity
Supporting Facts: Punnett squares have alleles of one parent along the top and side of the square, alleles are seen in the hardy-weinberg equation, alleles are a part of recessive and dominant traits
Related Words: Genotype, phenotype
Supporting Facts: Sometimes there isn't enough oxygen around plants and animals for them to breathe. In order to survive they carry out respiration in the absence of oxygen to produce energy. Only a small amount of energy is released
Related Words: Aerobic respiration, cellular respiration
Supporting Facts: Sulfur bacteria uses H2S to help make their food instead of using water. They oxidize the H2S into sulfate so they can use it to make food
Related Words: Heterotroph
Supporting Facts: Behaviors are not always inherited but they are learned. For example wild birds will flee from humans, but birds in cities see humans as a source for food. This trait is learned not inherited.
Related Words: Structural adaptation
Supporting Facts: Developing crops with enhanced nutrition that solves vitamin and nutrient deficiencies is an example because you are taking a living organism and making it do what you want it to. In this case you are taking a crop and making it solve vitamin and nutrient deficiencies.
Related Words: Biochemistry
Definition: The use of biological coloration to disguise location, identity, and movement from prey. Used as protection from predators.
Supporting Facts: Animals use the background of the environment to blend in such as a green snake would in grass
Related Words: Concealing coloration, background matching, countershading
Definition: When cells produce other cells that are different from themselves
Supporting Facts: Usually produced for a specialized purpose. One cell performs a different function on your body than another cell would, depending where on the body. Your lung cells have different functions than your brain cells.
Related Words: Cell division
Supporting Facts: Cellular respiration takes place in the cells of animals, plants, fungi, and also other protists
Related Words: Aerobic respiration, protist
Supporting Facts: Believed that all species developed from common ancestors and believed that species survived through a process called "natural selection"
Related Words: Alfred Russel Wallace, natural selection, evolutionary tree
Supporting Facts: Classical conditioning happens when a neutral stimulus is paired with an unconditional stimulus
Related Words: Neutral stimulus, unconditional stimulus, conditioned response, unconditioned response
Supporting Facts: Is the opposite from divergent evolution where organisms evolve different traits
Related Words: Divergent evolution, biological evolution, speciation
Supporting Facts: Decomposers are important because without them breaking down earths matter the dead bodies of animals would just pile up. The soil also wouldn't be as rich
Related Words: Consumers, producers, scavengers
Supporting Facts: Causes of this could be because of unequal crossing over, breaking without rejoining, losses from translocation, and chromosomal crossovers within a chromosomal inversion
Related Words: Mutations, deficiency, mutation
Supporting Facts: The tropical rain forest is an ecosystem because it contains the living things such as trees and monkeys as well as the nonliving things such as the rocks and rain(water)
Related Words: Community, population, environment, habitat
Supporting Facts: Having less hemoglobin can lead to anemia because hemoglobin is in red blood cells that contain iron as well and having less of that will cause anemia because of the lack of iron
Related Words: Plasma
Supporting Facts: Coal is an example of a limited resource because it's naturally available in certain parts of the Earth. Coal is formed by decomposing organisms that are compacted.
Related Words: Natural resource, fossil fuels
Supporting Facts: Water will naturally move from an area with a lower concentration of solutes to a higher concentration to achieve equilibrium
Related Words: Equilibrium, concentration, solutes
Supporting Facts: The development that takes place during any form of succession depends on a combination of different factors such as soil moisture, temperature, and wind
Related Words: Climax community, secondary succession, primary succession
Watson and Crick
Supporting Facts: Highlighted a milestone in the history of science and created the birth of molecular biology that focuses on the knowledge of how genes control the chemical change within a cell
Related Words: RNA, double-helix
