Evolution is a predictable change from simple to complex organisms.
Evolution is a process of change through time.
Evolution often proceeds from complex to simpler organisms.
Evolution causes organisms to develop characteristics they need.
Evolution explains how monkeys transformed into humans.
Mutations and sexual reproduction
Mitosis and asexual reproduction
Overpopulation and recombination
Synapsis and disjunction
Genetic engineering and gene therapy
Result in variation among organisms
Occur in body cells instead of egg or sperms
Are important unless the environment changes
Survive only if beneficial
They are created by mutagens
Random chance events that can be passed on to offspring if they occur in gametes
Nonrandom events that can be passed on to offspring if they occur in gametes
Random chance events that can be passed on to offspring if they occur in somatic cells
Nonrandom events that can be passed on to offspring if they occur in somatic cells
Nonrandom events that can be passed on to offspring if they occur in both gametes and somatic cells
The insecticide caused mutations that resulted in immunity in the mosquito.
Mosquitoes resistant to the insecticide lived and produced offspring.
The insecticide reacted chemically with the DNA of the mosquitoes and was destroyed.
All of the mosquitoes produced antibodies that activated the insecticide
As the mosquitoes grew older, they quickly evolved resistance to the insecticide.
Are born first and grow fastest
Are largest and most aggressive
Have no natural predators
Are best adapted to the environment
A population of at least 10,000 organisms
A slow mutation rate
Parents that care for their young
Variation of organisms within the species
Birds do not have the ability to learn
Individual birds need to learn to survive and reproduce
These behaviors helped birds to survive in the past
Within their lifetimes, birds developed these behaviors
These behaviors were taught to them by their parents
