Unformatted text preview: Wallace. Examples of Evolution: HIV resistance and Peppered moth example. Origin of species (Chapter 14): Concepts: taxonomy, species (different concepts: biological, morphological, ecological, phylogenetic), Prezygotic and Postzygotic barriers (know ALL of them), speciation (allopatric and sympatric), polyploidy, adaptive radiation. Examples : Evolution of the eye as a complex structure. Tracing evolutionary history (Chapter 15): Concepts: geological record (know in general what it is, NOT the different periods), radiometric dating, plate tectonics, Pangea, Cretaceous mass extinction (evidence and posterior diversification), phylogeny, shared derived and primitive characters (definition and know also which provides evidence of relationships), systematics, clade (=monophyletic group), molecular clock, and molecular systematics. Also know how convergent evolution and adaptive radiation can mislead phylogenies based on morphological data....
