1 Biology 100: Study Guide for Exam #1 Note that items not covered on this list may be on the exam. In general, consider the questions as “guides” to specific topics that I consider important. So if a question asks for some examples of a particular topic, you should also UNDERSTAND the topic in addition to the examples. Most of the questions in this review are straightforward. DON’T ASSUME THAT THE FORMAT OF THESE QUESTIONS IS ALL THAT IS NEEDED FOR THE EXAM. Be ready to synthesize information. Lecture 1: Invitation to Biology 1. Biology is a “natural” science. What are some other natural sciences? 2. What are the 9 levels of biological organization? Why are these levels said to be “hierarchical?” What are “emergent properties?” 3. What is homeostasis? Metabolism? Reproduction? 4. What do taxonomists do? How many species have been named? How many different species are thought to live on earth? 5. What is the highest (most general) taxonomic category? 6. Define “evolution.” Lecture 2: Life’s Chemical Basis 1. What is the basic chemical unit? 2. What 4 atoms make up about 95% of living material.
