General Biology 101/ Fall 2010/ Dr. Morrison Learning Objectives for Lecture Exam I Required Reading in Biology: Concepts and Connections (SIXTH edition) by Campbell et al. Animal Form and Function (Parts of Chapters 20, 21 and 25) 1. Give examples of how structure fits function in the animal body, especially how form fits function in chemical exchanges between animals and their environments (20.13). 2. Compare and contrast the specialized structures used for food processing (ingestion, digestion, absorption and elinmination) in hydra, worms, grasshoppers, birds and mammals (21.2 and 21.3, Lab Guide Minicourse 1) 3. Contrast the three forms of nitrogenous waste excreted by animals -- ammonia, urea, and uric acid -- in terms of their toxicity, solubility and chemical composition. Cite the advantages and disadvantages of excreting each (25.5). 4. Trace the processing of filtrate through the nephron of a human kidney, including the glomerulus, Bowman's capsule, proximal convoluted tubule, descending and ascending portions of the loop of Henle, distal convoluted tubule, and the collecting duct (25.6). Describe each structure’s role in filtration, reabsorption, secretion or excretion (25.7 and 25.8). 5. Explain the effects on urine production of antidiuretic hormone (ADH), ethyl alcohol and caffeine (Lecture). 6. Compare a kidney dialysis machine with a normal kidney (25.9) 7 What kinds of information about the body are provided by CT scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET) scans (20.11)? Respiratory Systems (Chapter 22) 1. List four things necessary for gas exchange to occur in multicellular animals and explain why each is required (Lab Guide, Minicourse 2, p. 2). 2. Compare and contrast the systems used for gas exchange by various animals (22.2), including insects (22.4). Describe how the efficiency of gas exchange and transport has been improved by respiratory pigments, red blood cells, branched gas exchange surfaces, and internal transport systems (22.10 and 22.11). 3. Compare and contrast the structural organization and gas exchange efficiency of gills and lungs . Include the availability of oxygen in water and air, countercurrent flow in gill filaments, and the structure of the alveolar sacs in
