There will be approximately 50 questions on the quiz. You will have 30 minutes to complete the quiz. The quiz will consist mostly of fill in the blank type answers but I will also include multiple choice and true or false questions. One section of the quiz can be answered independently. The other section will consist of identification of lab specimens that I will show you during the quiz. Content: Any information from the lab portion of this course.

Unformatted text preview: capitalized while the species name has the first letter in lowercase. Both names need to be underlined . A pt will be taken off for each answer if you do not follow these instructions! 2) Some specimens were provided with a Genus name but no species name. I will ask for the Genus name of these specimens, not the species name. Remember, the first letter of the Genus name is capitalized and the whole name is underlined . Again, a point off if you dont do this. 3) When I ask for the name of the specimen or group (i.e. Phylum, Class, Genus, scientific name, etc), you are allowed a misspelling of the name of up to two letters for full credit. A point will be taken off for three to four letters wrong, as long as I can tell that you knew what the name was. A full point will be taken off for five letters wrong or more. If you have any questions, send me an email at uclaeeb109@yahoo.com. Have fun, study hard, and relax!...
