Objectives

1. Explain why catastropism does not prevail today.
2. Describe three key pieces of evidence that disputed the theory that all organisms were created at one time and occupied a specific link in the "Great Chain of Being"
3. Contrast Cuvie's theory of catastropism with Jean-Baptiste Lamarck's theory of inheritance of acquired characteristics and site evidence that each used to support their theories.
4.Explain the theory of Uniformity and the scientific evidence that supported it.
5. In your own words, explain 3-5 key points of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection.
6. Give scientific evidence that supports the idea that evolution exists and has taken place over millions of years.
7. Define in your own words the meaning of evolution.
8. Contrast morphological, physiological, and behavioral traits.
9. Explain the difference between polymorphism, and continuous variation.
10. Identify the 5 conditions a population must meet to be at genetic equilibrium.
11. Describe how natural selection, gene flow, and genetic drift drive a population away from genetic equilibrium.
12. Given a population that meets all 5 conditions of genetic equilibrium, show mathematically how allele frequencies will be maintained from one generation to the next using p + q = 1, and p2 + 2pq + q2 = 1.
13. Demonstrate through graphical evidence how populations in peppered moths, pesticide resistance in insects, or anitibiotic resistance of bacteria show directional selection.
14. Demonstrate through graphical evidence how populations of the gallmaking fly are affected by stabilizing selection.
15. Demonstrate through graphical evidence how populations of black-bellied seedcrackers show disruptive selection.
16. Describe the affect of gene flow on populations.
17. Explain how a bottleneck affected genetic drift in the allele frequencies found in cheetah populations.
18. Explain Ernst Mayr's concept of biological species.
19. Describe and give examples of temporal, behavioral, mechanical, ecological, postzygotis isolation, and gametic mortality.
20. Explain adaptive radiation using Hawaiian honeycreepers as an example.
21. Contrast allopatric, sympatric, and parapatric speciation.
22. Analyze an evolutionary tree diagram and identify if it shows gradual model of speciation or punctuation model of speciation.
23. Understand the difference between cladogenesis and anagenesis.

Assignments

1. Read chapter 17. pg 270 - 278. It is only 8 pages!! No excuses !!! Know the scientists mentioned in each section and their contributions to the Theory of Catastrophism, Theory of Unformity, and Theory of Evolution through Natural Selection.
2. Transfer the Quackers Lab into your Notebook. It will be one of your Test Grades for the 6 weeks.


3. Complete the Quackers Lab. Make sure it is black ink, front of page only, 3rd person past tense.
4. Read pg 280- 285. You will have a quiz on the different types of traits.
5.Read pg. 286-293. Look over the Microevolution notes listed above.
6. Read pg. 296 - 307. For this chapter you will need to know the vocabulary and examples. Do not worry about extensive small details for this chapter.
