Chapter 13 Guided Reading Assignment
Compare and contrast asexual and sexual reproduction.
Define the following terms:
a. Life cycle
b. Somatic cell
d. Homologous chromosomes
e. Sex chromos
Counting carbonskeeping track of where the carbon atoms go in each reactionis a simple way to
help understand what is happening in the Calvin cycle.
To produce 1 molecule of G3P (which contains 3 carbons), the Calvin cycle must take up 3
molecules of CO2
CHAPTER 10: PHOTOSYNTHESIS
The Process That Feeds the Biosphere
Photosynthesis is the process that converts solar energy into chemical energy
Directly or indirectly, photosynthesis nourishes almost the entire living world.
Autotrophs sustain themselves wi
GENE EXPRESSION: FROM GENE TO PROTEIN
OVERVIEW: The Flow of Genetic Information
The information content of genes is in the specific sequences of nucleotides.
The DNA inherited by an organism leads to specific traits by dictating the synthesis o
CHAPTER 2 THE CHEMICAL CONTEXT OF LIFE
Overview: Chemical Foundations of Biology
Biology is a multidisciplinary science
Living organisms are subject to basic laws of Physics and Chemistry
One example is the bombardier beetle, which uses chemistry to defen
CHAPTER 5: THE STRUCTURE & FUNCTION OF MACROMOLECULES
Overview: The Molecules of Life
Within cells, small organic molecules are joined together to form larger molecules.
Macromolecules are large molecules composed of thousands of covalently connected at
CHAPTER 12: THE CELL CYCLE
The Key Roles of Cell Division
The ability of organisms to produce more of their own kind best distinguishes living things from
The continuity of life is based on the reproduction of cells, or cell division.
CHAPTER 8: AN INTRODUCTION TO METABOLISM
OVERVIEW: THE ENERGY OF LIFE
The living cell is a miniature chemical factory where thousands of reactions occur.
The cell extracts energy and applies energy to perform work
Some organisms even convert energy to lig
CHAPTER 14: MENDEL AND THE GENE IDEA
Drawing From the Deck of Genes
What principles account for the passing of traits from parents to offspring?
The blending hypothesis is the idea that genetic material from the two parents blends together

CHAPTER 9 CELLULAR RESPIRATION AND FERMENTATION
Overview: Life Is Work
Living cells require energy from outside sources
Some animals, such as the giant panda, obtain energy by eating plants; others feed on organisms
that eat plants.
Energy flows into a
CHAPTER 7: MEMBRANE STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
Life at the Edge
The plasma membrane is the boundary that separates the living cell from its
The plasma membrane exhibits selective permeability, allowing some substances to
cross it more easily th
CHAPTER 6: A TOUR OF THE CELL
Overview: The Importance of Cells
All organisms are made of cells
The cell is the simplest collection of matter that can live.
All cells are related by their descent from earlier cells
Cells can differ substantially from
CHAPTER 3 WATER AND LIFE
OVERVIEW: THE MOLECULE THAT SUPPORTS ALL OF LIFE
Water is the biological medium on Earth
All living organisms require water more than any other substance
Most cells are surrounded by water, and cells themselves are about 70-95% wa
CHAPTER 4: CARBON & THE MOLECULAR DIVERSITY OF LIFE
Overview: Carbon: The Backbone of Life
Although cells are 70-95% water, the rest consists mostly of carbon-based compounds.
Carbon is unparalleled in its ability to form large, complex and diverse mole
CHAPTER 15: The Chromosomal Basis of Inheritance
Locating Genes Along Chromosomes
Mendels hereditary factors were purely abstract when first proposed
Today we can show that the factors -genes- are located on chromosomes
The location of a particular gene c
CHAPTER 13: MEIOSIS AND SEXUAL LIFE CYCLES
Variations on a Theme
Living organisms are distinguished by their ability to reproduce their own kind
Heredity is the transmission of traits from one generation to the next
Variation is demonstrated by the differ
CHAPTER 16: THE MOLECULAR BASIS OF INHERITANCE
Lifes Operating Instructions
In 1953, James Watson and Francis Crick introduced an elegant double-helical model for the
structure of deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA
Hereditary information is encoded in DNA and
CONCEPT 1.1 STUDY OF LIFE AND COMMON THEMES
BIOLOGY the scientific study of life; a quest an ongoing inquiry about the nature of life.
From the biological perspective, LIFE is an outcome of ancient events by which nonliving matter
