Biology 11 review question for upcoming exam

Answer these questions using your notes, lab diagrams, and selected text
Notes and handout:


Introduction to biology
  1. What are the criteria of life?
  2. How is life organized? What are the levels of organization
Field study at Central park
  1. Field Study: Identify plants in a west coast rainforest, describe
    and draw or identify the following:
    1. trees: vine maple, cedar, hemlock, douglas fir
    2. bushes: salal, huckleberry, salmonberry, red elderberry
    3. ground cover: moss, ferns
be prepared to identify the plants from a picture
You will be given 2 plant diagrams:

  2. What are three evolutionary trends of plants?
  3. How do land plants adapt to conditions on land?
    1. Identify how plants prevent water loss
    2. How do tracheophyte plants disperse their male gametophyte?
      1. Ferns (use swimming sperm.)
      2. Conifers ( use wind pollination)
      3. angiosperms (use wind AND vector pollination (attract the pollinator))
    3. How do plants move water up from the ground?
  4. What is the definition of a plant?

  1. See the plant diagrams handed out and also this powerpoint
