stem cell
a cell that isn't specilized but at some point it will become specilized, it is waiting for a cell to die
sperm furtalized the egg and creates a new cell
the process of cells becoming specilized
this stem cell has total potential and can form any cell in the body and if inplanted in a womans uteris can grow a full baby
it is a stem cell that has the potential to form every cell in the human body, but can no longer form an intyer human body
a stem cell that has the potential to form several different kinds of cells, but not all kinds of cells
the first eight weeks inside your mother
audlt stem cell
a blank cell that comes from an audlt= a person after born till death
invitro fertilization
docters colect eggs from a mother and sperm from the father. they join the sperm and the egg in petry char. when the eggs were fertalized they take the eggs and put them in the mother. once the mother gets pregnant tou have a lot of embryos.

it is evolution that occurs slowly over many generation and is a steady change of species this is the way darwin saw evolution
punctuated equilibria
that evolution acures in a species over short periods of time and there is a rapid change in a species then there are long periods with no changes
homologous structures
they are similar structures that related species have inherited from s common ancester
relative dating
to determine which two fossils are older
absolute dating
allows scientists to determine the actual age of fossils
