Monogenesis model
modern humans arose in africa only from H. erectus and spread to other areas eventually replacing other hominids that had migrated earlier
What is the narrow opening of the human uterus called?
amniotic egg
shelled egg that retains water and can be laid on land or dry places
What causes menopause?
a decline in production of estrogens by the ovaries

follicular, ovulation, and luteal
Order Chelonia

visceral mass
contains organs

Which developmental sequence is correct?
cleavage, morula, blastula, gastrula
lateral line system
row of tiny organs sensitive to changes in water pressure, help detect sound waves and splashing
In vertebrate animals, spermatogenesis and oogenisis differ in that?
Oogenisis produces one functional ovum, whereas spermatogenesis produces four functional spermatozoa
'there are 5 hormones regulating the human menstrual and ovarian cycles. Which of these structures secretes theses hormones?
A & C
Arrange the following stages of fertilizaton and early development into a proper sequence
4 2 5 1 3
Evidence of models for modern man
-only Africa contains fossils of ALL proposed stages of hominid evolution
-Neanderthal s and H. sapiens fossils coexisted and did not interbreed for 40,000 years in Israel
-mtDNA traced all modern humans back to Africa 200,000 years ago
How do the estrous and menstrual cycles compare?
Endometrial bleeding occurs during the menstrual cycle; the endometrium is reabsorbed by the uterus during the estrous cycle
