1) snakes, frogs, squirrels and humans are all classified as being homeothermic.
2) diagnostic traits can be used to distinguish between species of living organisms only.
3) the first species to begin secondary succession are called pioneer species, or
4) sphincter muscles regulate the opening and closing of the capillary beds, directing
the flow of blood to different areas of the body depending on the body's needs.
5) homeostasis is ultimately controlled by the nervous system.
6) once proteins are made and functional, they are no longer subject to cellular control.
7) emergent properties can be used to distinguish living things from nonliving things
8) the control group in an experiment receives all the same treatments as the
experimental group(s), except for the one variable being tested.
9) innate immunity is a defense system that becomes fully functional after it has
undergone a period of exposure to various pathogens.
10) preliminary studies indicate that biodiversity maximizes resource acquisition and
retention within an ecosystem.
11) old world monkeys have a prehensile tail and a flattened nose.
12) called caspases.
13) anything below ph 7 is acidic and above ph 7 is basic.
14) photorespiration is the process by which light is used to release the stored energy in
carbohydrate molecules to perform all work in plant cells.
15) the scale indicates the relative concentrations of hydrogen and hydroxyl ions in a

21) consider the following food chain: hawk - rabbit - clover. each species will contain
a different amount of calories in its body (clover: 10 calories, rabbit: 500 and hawk:
1200). each species has a different daily caloric requirement (clover: sunlight, rabbit:
100 calories, hawk: 300).
how many clover plants, per day,does it take to support one rabbit?
a. approximately 100 plants
b. approximately 10 plants
c. approximately 50 plants
d. approximately 3 plants
e. approximately 1000 plants
22) in a species of desert lizard, only females are known to exist. it is necessary for two
females to court and for one to assume the posture of a male to stimulate the other
female to ovulate. of course, no fertilization can occur. this is a case of
a. hermaphroditism.
b. parthenogenesis.
c. sexual reproduction because the mating behavior is required.
