BSC 1005 Study Guide II Spring, 2008 Page 1 Terms and concepts Second Exam – Lectures 10 – 20 Cheung – Fundamental Concepts in Biology, Chapters 7 – 13 Hello Students of Biological Principles – I have posted on WebCT items that might help you in your quest for a better performance on the next exam. These include: 1) This study guide, 2) A compendium of the in-class quiz questions for this recent period (I only included the factual question; the opinion questions are not included) 3) A copy of the first exam this year with the correct answers 4) An abbreviated copy of Exam 2 that I gave last year so you can see the types of questions that I am likely to ask. 5) As always, the PowerPoint slides for these lectures. I hope this material is helpful. You may also want to review the content of the videos that I showed. You can do this by reading the appropriate pages in the text. Comments about this study guide: I have listed many of the terms and concepts covered in the last lectures. Please note that this list, while long, is not comprehensive –I may ask questions on material that is not on this guide. However, I suspect that most of the exam question can be answered with this information. I suggest that you start with the concepts and issues on the first page. They are arranged in the approximate order in which they are discussed in class. Use the terms and topics pages that follow to expand on these concepts. Concepts and issues: 1) How is gender determined in different species? What role do hormones (sex steroids) play in this determination? How chemically similar are sex steroids? What tissues produce them? 2) What syndromes and disorders affect sex determination (CAIS, CAH, chromosomal disorders)? What do these conditions tell us about gender identity? 3) What is the biological value of mate choice? How do birds choose mates? Do humans have sex pheromones? What signals do these pheromones appear to be carrying? 4) What are the component parts (sign stimuli, drive, motor programs) of fixed action pattern behavior? What is the difference between proximal and ultimate causation of a behavior? 5) What is the age structure of a population? How does it help us predict population growth? What is exponential growth? 6)
