15. Explain how certain organisms may have coevolved together. 16. Explain the process of speciation 17. Describe what must happen in order for new species to form 18. Describe the different ways in which populations may reproductively isolate themselves from one another. Discuss both pre and post reproductive ways that this could happen 19. Compare and contrast gradualism vs. punctuated equilibrium 20. Explain the various different types of evidence for evolution (fossil record, anatomical evidence, embryological evidence, molecular evidence, artificial selection, antibiotic and insecticide resistance) 21. Compare homologous and analogous structures 22. Explain the idea of convergent evolution. 23. Explain how the evidence is used to determine the evolutionary relatedness of various species 24. Explain how the fossil record is used to determine when various organisms were present on the earth 25. Explain how comparing the development of embryos of different species allows you to determine which species are more related to each other. 26. Explain the molecular evidence for evolution 27. State the hierarchy of the eight classification categories in order 28. Understand the relationships between the eight classification categories (ex. organisms in the same class must belong to the same phylum, but may or may not belong to the same order). 29. Write a scientific name through using the principles of binomial nomenclature 30. Explain how a phylogenetic tree is formed 31. Develop and analyze a cladogram Ecology 1. Explain how the ecological pyramids are arranged 2. Describe the six levels of ecological study 3. 4. Calculate population density 5. Describe the pattern of exponential growth 6. Describe the concept of carrying capacity 7. 8. Understand the predator prey relationship 9. Distinguish between K and R selected organisms 10. Identify causes and possible results of interspecific competition 11. Explain how the prey affects the predator population and vice-versa. 12. Compare and contrast symbiotic relationships 13. Describe the effect invasive species may have upon the ecosystem that they are in 14. Compare primary and secondary succession 15. Explain how human activities can affect species diversity 16. Contrast the flow of energy and chemicals in ecosystems 17. Describe the process of transpiration in plants. Include the terms cohesion, adhesion, stomata, and xylem. 18. Describe the water cycle 19. Describe the carbon cycle 20. Describe the nitrogen cycle. 21. Describe the basic pattern of chemical cycling. 22. Explain how trophic levels relate to food chains and food webs 23. Understand how consumer are categorized Biochemistry 1. Identify an element and a compound. 2. Identify the parts of an atom and their charges. 3. Read an element box within the periodic table. (Number of protons, neutrons, atomic mass, name of element, etc) 4. Determine the amount of electrons an atom contains 5. Explain how radioactive isotopes can be used in biology/medicine. 6.
