SAMPLE EXAM 3, ZOOLOGY 101 Spring 2008 Keep the following in mind in using this exam. These are exam questions from Spring 2007 when Dr. Riters last spring in Zoology 101. She did not cover all of the same topics as she is covering this semester and those that she did cover were not covered in the same order nor necessarily covered with the exact same focus or depth. Therefore, realize that not all topics covered this semester are represented on this exam nor are those here represented in ratio indicative of how they were covered this semester. This sample exam is provided to give you an idea of the TYPES of questions Dr. Riters has asked in the past. Expect 4-5 questions per lecture on the exam. Some questions may combine material from more than one lecture. There will also be 1-2 questions based on the article Broken Mirrors . An answer key will be provided as a separate document. This exam is ONE TOOL for studying, do NOT use it as your sole means of study. It is not meant to take the place of attending lectures and discussions. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Foraging rabbits pass up food items when they smell the odor of a predator. Which of the following is an ultimate explanation for this observation? a. Predator odor increases stress hormones thus decreasing hunger b. Rabbits that avoid feeding in the presence of predator odors are more likely to survive c. Rabbits do not forage optimally d. Rabbits are genetically wired to stop eating in response to certain odors e. The odor of a predator is a sign stimulus; feeding inhibition is a fixed action pattern 2. Moths dive straight toward the ground when they perceive high frequency sounds emitted by bat predators. A human tossing his or her keys into the air causes the same high frequency sound and the moths shoot straight toward the ground (this is supposed to be true by the way). The __________ is an example of a sign stimulus. The ________ is an example of a fixed action pattern. a. bat; moth diving toward the ground b. moth; bat food searching behavior c. moth diving toward the ground; high frequency sound d. human; moth diving toward the ground e. high frequency sound; moth diving toward the ground 3. A scientist notes that in some lakes stickleback fish live near the shore, whereas in other lakes they live in the middle of the lake. The scientist sees that in lakes where the fish live near the shore there are predators in the deep water, whereas in lakes where the fish live in the middle of the lake there are predators near the shore. The scientist takes eggs from stickleback fish living in the two types of lakes and hatches them in artificial lakes (with no adults or predators present). As adults, the offspring of fish that live near the shore also lived near the shore, whereas offspring of fish that live in the middle of the lake also lived in the middle of the lake. This finding indicates that where the fish live in the lake is a. genetic
