1) Warm tide pools
2) Hydrothermal Vents
3) Subterranean cracks in rocks
Organisms systematic listing of interrelationships is arranged how?
Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species
The naming of things?
Related groups are called?
Evolutionary Interrelationships are called?
A phylogenetic map is called?
What is the 3 domain system
1) Bacteria
2) Archae
3) Eukarya
Prokaryotes with peptidogylcan and unique genetic structures?
D. Bacteria
What are the 6 groups within Bacteria?
1) Spirochaetes
2) Chlamydias- parasites
3) Cyanobacteria- chlorophyl
4) Gram positive
5) Gram negative
6) Protobacteria
Prokaryotes with peptidogyclen usually in the cell wall and has a unique genome?
Domain Bacteria
What detects peptidogylcan with iodine via binding to peptidogylcan?
Gram Stain
- if (+) it responds to gram stain turns purple
- if (-) doesn't turn purple due to extra lipid layer
Internal parasites within other cells that can be dangerous pathogens such as STD's?
Largest, most diverse group of bacteria- some are pathogens, others are endosymbionts or free living: Escherchia coli, Yersinia pestis, Vibrio cholerae?
Prokaryotes with out peptidoglycan, they have different genetics, and unique lipids?
Domain Archae
They love extreme environments such as thermophiles, halophiles, and methanophiles?
Extreme environment such as a hot spring, vents- temp loving?
Extremely salty environment?
An extremely non oxygen environment such as swamps, cow and termite guts?
Large cells, complex internal organelle, DNA -> multiple chromosome and histone protein support, Evolutionary potential?
Domain Eukarya
Who came up with the endosymbiotic origin of eukaryotes?
Lynn Margalis
Simple circular chromosomes such as mitochondria and chloroplast =?
Modified Prokaryotes
How old is the earth?
3.85 bya
Includes dinoflagellates (Photosynthetic), Apicomplexa (Parasite- malaria), and Ciliates (Paramecia)?
Clade Aveolata
Is a variable group, photosynthetic, chlorophyll-a, and accessory pigments
Clade Stramenophila
Brown Algae? Diatoms?
Silicon shell, great fossils, stratographic markers, great filter material, diatomaceous earth, D.E. Filter
Diatoms/ Brown Algae/ Phaeophyta
Red Algae?
Alternating generations, in which the sporophytes and gametophytes look alike? Multicellular, photosynthetic, and have alternating generations?
Clade Rhodophyta (Red Algae)
Have a defense: Calcareon skeleton, produce agar- bacterial medium, and are carrageenan -> used in pudding
Isomorphic Generation, (Red algae)
Contain chlorophyll-a, single cells -> filaments -> balls -> Ancestor to Kingdom Plantae
Amoeba- enteric disease belong to which clade?
Clade Phizopoda
The process by which amoeba eat by putting their body around the substance they are trying to eat?
Include single celled plankton and spiral cells
Clade Foraminifera "Forams"
What is the most advanced green algae?
Aquatic specialized regions of the thallus, closest living relative to the terrestrial plants- share common ancestor?
What are the pre adaptations to living in marsh environments?
- drying out
- dessigation
1) waxy cuticle
2) stomata- pores through cuticle - CO2 in O2 out
Adaptations for moving onto land?
1) Evolution of vascular system
- transport H2O/ food through plant
- plants get bigger
2) Seeds- break plants away from wet environment
3) Flower- very complex reproductive structure animal/plants -> coevolution
Green Algae?
Clade chlorophyta, Kingdom Plantae
Phylum Bryophyta, wax cuticle/stomata, no vascular tissue, small alternation of generation?
Kingdom Plantae
Phylum Bryophyta
Liver Warts?
Phylum Hapatophyta
Like mosses, tracheophyte, plants get taller, specialization- root, cell walls for support, and leaves?
Phylum Hapatophyta (Liver Warts)
All plants w/ vascular tissue = xylem- H20 and nutrients and Phloem- food/sucrose?
Club mosses?
Phylum Lycophyta
Club mosses, now- small, epiphytes, ancient time - 30- 40 m tall?
Phylum Lycophyta

Phylum Pteridophyte (ferns)
Embryo + nutrients in a protective coat=?
What is sperm transported to other plants?
Naked seed, no "ovary" that surrounds embryo, wind pollinated?
