BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES  102  – ANIMAL BIOLOGY REVIEW SHEET FOR FIRST EXAMINATION THIS REVIEW SHEET IS MEANT TO BE AN AID TO YOU IN YOUR STUDIES  FOR THE EXAM.  IT   DOES      NOT      NECESSARILY INCLUDE ALL OF THE INFORMATION WHICH WAS PRESENTED IN       LECTURE AND LAB FOR THE EXAM.  THIS REVIEW SHEET IS      NOT      A SUBSTITUTE FOR       REGULAR, DILIGENT STUDY OF THE COURSE MATERIAL. 1. Roughly,  how  large  was  the  Deepwater  Horizon  Oil Spill?   How many  gallons  of oil leaked? 2. Where  and  when  did  the  Deepwater  Horizon  Oil Spill occur? 3. Briefly describe  three  different  impacts  this  oil spill has  had  on  humans. 4. List  three  different  fisheries  that  might  be affected  by the  oil spill. 5. Biologically,  how  can  the  oil plumes  be degraded  or broken  down? 6. List  six different  biological  effects  of the  oil spill on  the  affected  environment  and  animal  life. 7. List  two different  specific effects  of the  oil spill on  birds. 8. List  two different  specific effects  of the  oil spill on  marine  mammals. 9. What  is the  Dead  Zone  in the  Gulf of Mexico?   What  causes  it? 10. Briefly describe  or draw  a diagram  to show  the  levels  of organization  of life (the  hierarchy  of life  from  atoms  to biosphere). 11. Define  the  following:  biosphere,  ecosystem,  habitat 12. Define  the  following  terms:  homeostasis,  tissue,  organ. 13. Define  the  following  terms:  ecology, food web,  trophic  level. 14. How does  a population  differ from  a community? 15. Draw  simple  flowcharts  of examples  of both  a terrestrial  and  an  aquatic  food chain  and  label  the   various  trophic  levels. 16. Why is decomposition  so  important  to the  survival  of animals?   What  types  of organisms  perform   most  decomposition? 17. What  is a top  predator  in an  ecosystem?   Give an  example  of a top  predator. 18. What  is mimicry? 19. What  one  molecule  is an  absolute  requirement  for life as  we know  it? 20. List  the  four  most  important  atoms  that  form  biologically important  molecules? 21. Why is carbon  so  important  to life on  earth?   What  does  carbon  form? 22. Briefly describe  the  scientific  method.   23. Why is the  observation  portion  of the  scientific  method  so  critical? 24. What  is an  hypothesis?  How does  a theory  differ from  an  hypothesis? 25. How does  a control  group  differ from  an  experimental  group?
