BI 101 Study Guide Midterm 1
Define the three different biology topics covered in BI 101
Biodiversity- the variety of organisms on earth
Ecology- the interrelationships between organisms and their environment
Environmental science- human interactions with

Symbiosis: different species living in close association over time
Pigments: responsible for absorbing sunlight during photosynthesis
Microsymbiont: aka Fungus, carries out the process of respiration
Photosymbionts: algea of cyanobacteria (living inside o
Phylum Anthropoda: insects, spiders, millipedes, centipedes, and crustaceans
Anthropods have segmented bodies, jointed appendages and exoskeletons
Class insect is the largest group of anthropods
Subphylum myriaboda: many feet centipedes, and millipedes
Lakes and Succession
o Lake classification
Oceans = 97% of earths water
Fresh water = 3%
29% ground water
1% streams, lakes, wetlands
Less than 1% atmosphere water
Lentic: standing bodies of fresh water
o Temperate Grasslands
Drought and flood tolerant
Can regrow from base (below in soil)
Family Poaceae: Approximately 10,000 grass species
Leaves, provide habitat (dead and living)
Herds of herbivores
Stamen: Male part of the flower
Anther (produce pollen) holds pollen and Filament holds up the anther
Pistil carpel: female part of the flower
Stigma receives pollen grains, attached to the stigma is the style that connects to the ovary,
inside the ovary

Identifying Liquids by Their Density
The purpose of this lab is to measure the density of an unknown liquid and use that density to
determine what substance the unknown liquid is.

Please discuss the chapter on membranes. Be sure to discuss the different groups of organisms.
Were the first organisms anaerobic or aerobic? How do enzymes work?
The metabolism means the chemical reaction within the cells. There are several kin
