Taxonomy is the branch of biology that deals with

  • A. naming organisms.
  • B. classifying organisms.
  • C. the anatomy of organisms.
  • D. the biochemistry of organisms.

According to the Linnaean system of classification, the organism Acetabulariamediterranea is most closely related to

      • AMediterraneacrassa.
      • B. Acetabulariacrenulata.
  • C. Mediterraneacrenulata.
  • D. Crenulataacetabularia.

Which category contains the greatest number of different types of organisms?

  • A. genus
  • B. family
  • C. phylum
  • D. Class
  • E. Kingdom

Which is the proper sequence of classification categories, moving from the largest to the smallest group of organisms?

  • A. kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, species, genus
  • B. kingdom, phylum, family, class, order, genus
  • C. kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus species
  • D. kingdom, phylum, division, class, order, family, genus

The scientific names of organisms continue to be written in Latin because

A. Latin invented the system.

    • Latin is universally understood.
    • Latin doesn't change as other languages change.
    • it is easier to learn Latin than most other languages.

Considering organisms from the species level to the phylum level there is an increase in

  • A. unity.
  • B. diversity
  • C. structural similarity.
  • D. color similarity.

Which of these categories of classification contains organisms that are most closely related?

  • A. family
  • B. class
  • C. order
  • D. genus

The system of binomial nomenclature was devised by

  • A. Charles Darwin.
  • B. Charles Lyell.
  • C. Aristotle.
  • D. Carolus Linnaeus.

A biology class was investigating the properties of active and inactive organisms. Students used sprouted and dry seeds, fresh and boiled yeast, and awake and etherized crickets. These organisms were chosen because they were from three different

  • A. kingdoms.
  • B. phyla.
  • C. classes.
  • D. kingdoms, phyla, and classes.

An organism that produces its own food by the process of photosynthesis is called:

  • AHeterotroph
  • BAutotroph
  • C Herbivore
  • D Consumer

A virus is made up all of the following except:

  • A Nucleic Acid
  • B Protein
  • CCapsids
  • DRibosomes

Viruses CAN:

  • A Live independently
  • B Grow
  • C Eat
  • D Direct their host to replicate their genetic material

The _______ Cycle for a virus will display immediate symptoms of an infection.

  • ALytic
  • BLysogenic

.______ The HIV virus undergoes the ___________ cycle. The virus directs the host to replicate its virus. However no symptoms of the infection are apparent until years later.




A ________________ is a protective protein coat that surrounds the nucleic acid of the virus.

  • ACapsid
  • B DNA
  • C Pathogen
  • D Epidemic

All Monerans
