BILD 3 Dr. David Woodruff Study Guide for the Second Mid-term Exam, February 27, 2009 50-minute closed-book exam. No calculators, cell phones, Blackberries, satellite dishes, etc. Answer all questions in INK – no #2 pencils – bring some pens. Although some of the following prompts appear to require long answers please anticipate that, if there are 30-40 questions on the test (to cover the breadth of the material), the typical answer will take 1 minute or less and it’s unlikely there will be any question requiring more than 2 minutes to answer. Plan to use very short answers. The following questions are provided to help you anticipate the level of detail to be examined. The inclusion of a question here is no guarantee that it will appear on the midterm or final exam. Lecture 10. Insects. Review Campbell chapter 33 [pp. 284–292]. You should be familiar with all terms printed in bold in the text. Name and distinguish between the four major subphyla of Arthropods. Insects have several defining characteristics. List five of these and write one sentence describing the feature or its significance. Distinguish between complete and incomplete metamorphosis. List five major Orders of insects, give their common name and write a few words as to why each might be mentioned in BILD 3. Lecture 11. Vertebrates. Review Campbell chapter 34: see the review of concepts 34.1-7. You should be familiar with all terms printed in bold in the text. The sections on primates [pp. 723, 726–733] will not be examined until the final exam. Name the major characteristics of chordates? List the distinguishing characteristics of each of the classes of vertebrates Draw a simple phylogenetic tree indicating how five classes (major clades] of living vertebrates are related. What evidence indicates that birds are descendents of dinosaurs? Describe the circumstances that appear to have led to mammal ascendancy and radiation. Describe the embryonic membranes surrounding the embryos of dinosaurs and birds Draw a simple phylogenetic diagram showing the relationships of five major groups of living amniotes, at least two should be exclusively endothermic.
