Who [which groups] and what are the Amniotes?
Amniotes lay egg. The major group of chordates that include mamalia and reptalia. DO
NOT INCLUDE AMPHIBIA.
Includes monotremes(platypus), marsupials (kangaroos)
placental (humans). It allowed you to move onto land. Land animals. Birds also are
Who [which groups] and what are the Tetrapods?
Tetrapoda are animals with four limbs. This includes amphibia(frogs, salamanders and
caecilians) and the amniotes described above. Includes monotremes(platypus), marsupials
placental (humans). Reptalia include Chelonia(turtles), Lepidosauria
(lizards snakes) Archosauria (dinosaurs) croodylia and aves.
What groups are included in the Primates?
Primates consist of lemurs, monkeys, apes and humans. [know the break down of
homonoids, hominids, and primates in general] Humans are great apes- are closest are
chimpanizees and bonobos
Who are our closest relatives among the primates?
Our closest relative amongst the primates are chimpanzees and bonobos. We get our
aggression from the chimps and our love from the bonobos.
What are the traits (physical and cultural in correct order) that are associated with human
Would an Australopithecine share all these traits (if not, which ones would be).
We started with bipedalism in the Australopothecines. The homo genus started out with a
bigger brain than that of the Australopithecine before them. Homo ergaster had a larger
brain that H. Habilis as well as reduced sexual dimorphism, showing pair bonding and
parental care. Homo erectus spread out of Africa. Homo Sapien evolved in Africa and

What outline of questions did Niko Tinbergen pose for ethologists?
How is behavior controlled?
How does behavior develop?
What is the ecological role of behavior?
How has behavior evolved?
Know the major events that happen during meiosis I [e.g. when do homologous
chromosomes pair up].
Meiosis I- The data is replicates in the S phase prior to meiosis. During PROPHASE I
homologous chromosomes pair up and spindle fibers begin to form. This is where crossing
