Some scientists propose that kingdom protista should be broken up into several kingdoms. Which of these statements accurately supports the idea.
Explain on a lined piece of paper why daughter cells produced by meiosis are genetically different from each other, whereas the daughter cells produced by mitosis are not.

The pedigree shows the inheritance of free earlobes and attached earlobes in five generations of a family. Attached earlobes are caused by recessive alleles.
The individual is heterozygous (Ff), since her daughter has attached earlobes. The daughter inherited one allele for attached earlobes from individual 2 and another from individual 1.
None of those children have attached earlobes.
No, the genotype of individual 5 is uncertain because his children have free earlobes. Thus, individual 5 could be homozygous (FF) or heterozygous (Ff) for free earlobes. If, however, one of his children had attached earlobes, it would be certain that individual 5 was heterozygous.
Individual 14 will be homozygous for the recessive allele (ff) and will have attached earlobes.
No, none of the descendants are homozygous (FF) for free earlobes.
Examine the graph above. It charts the yield of a farm over several years. In 1975 a pesticide was applied for the first time. It was reapplied in 1980 at the same dosage and in 1990 at twice the original dosage. In 1995, a new pesticide was applied. Provide an explanation for the pattern shown by the metric tons?
Charles Darwin would say that sharks like the one on the previous slide exhibit fitness. Explain what that means, and discuss two specific adaptations as part of your explanation.
(1) Sharks have an overall body shape that enables them to move rapidly through water. (2) Sharks have a large tail and fins that provide balance and enable them to steer. (3) Sharks have teeth that make them successful predators.
Evidence indicates that dolphins evolved from ancestors that walked on land. How can the concept of natural selection be used to explain the evolution of the present-day dolphin body?
The dolphin’s land-dwelling ancestors were probably made up of populations with different body shapes and limbs. Those land-dwellers began to spend more time in the ocean, perhaps because food was easier to find. In each generation, those with bodies that moved efficiently in water survived longer and produced more offspring than others. Eventually, the whole population came to resemble today’s dolphins.
Sharks and dolphins, which belong to different vertebrate groups, are not closely related. How can Darwin’s ideas about evolution help explain such a similar appearance?
Darwin proposed that over time, natural selection made a population more fit for its environment. Sharks and dolphins both live in the ocean, where natural selection favors organisms that move efficiently through water.
Although their skeletons are made of different materials, there are likely to be homologous structures in the skull, backbone, and limbs. There may also be homologous structures among internal organs such as heart, brain, and digestive system.
Suppose a dolphin population becomes trapped in a harbor that is growing smaller and more shallow because of climate changes. Is it likely that the dolphins would evolve into a land-dwelling species in a few thousand years? Explain your answer.
It is not likely: (1) Darwin emphasized that evolution usually requires millions, not thousands, of years. (2) The bodies of dolphins are well adapted to life in water, with little observable variation; it’s unlikely that the population’s relevant characteristics could change in just thousands of years.
You are assigned to participate in a conservation project in Brazil located near the equator. The climate is wet usually 60 to 80 inches of rain per year. There are a large amount of organisms that live in the tropical environment. Two-thirds of Earth’s animal and plant species are found in a rain forests. The rain forest environment consist of tall, broad-leaved evergreen trees that form a leafy canopy, as a result, there is restricted undergrowth in rain forests because lack of sunlight at ground level. The food resources are dispersed due to high diversity in the region.
You arrive in Brazil to study the various species in this environment. One particular population in the rain forest, iguanas. They possess the following characteristics, sharp, clawed feet; thick, leathery skin; greenish-brown color; long tail; finely-serrated teeth; thick, slightly-forked tongue; and very good eye sight. They live high in the canopy but can spend long periods of time under water. They are classified as a omnivore. It lays between 20 and 70 eggs at a time in warm moist soil. These eggs undergo a 3 month incubation period.
1. Given the environment, explain what evolutionary factors contributed to at least 5 of the characteristics.2. Utilizing the chart and graph to infer what human activity could have contributed to the rise in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere3. How might this activity directly affect the population of iguanas in addition to the rain forest itself?4. If the atmosphere continues to change at its current rate, what adaptations must occur for the iguanas to become better suited for their new environment?
