Exam Review Biology
Niche- ecological role, physical habitat, relationships (how things interact) takes
form the environment, but also gives back (providing), the niche can change
(Climate, extinction), modify their environment (humans, beavers)
Ecological role and space that an organism fills in an ecosystem
Humans are the only species to modify the environment in order to change their
Ecosystem: genetic composition over successive generations, different species,
branching off of species,
Change in genotype = may or may not result in a change in phenotype= eventual
change in species
Genotype: genetic makeup, inheritable instructions in the genetic code (DNA)
Phenotype: What you can physically see, combination of genotype and the
environment, observational traits
Natural Selection: Members of species that have traits that help them survive
more, survival of the fittest, nature of the environment, which organism will
produce more then others. Good genotype = good phenotype = good sex life= good
chance of genetic survival, better traits = better chance of survival
Sexual Selection: Mate selection. Two ways you can make a choice:
Attracting mates: Usually the male is attracting females based on the way that he
looks. That trait will be over represented in the population.
Sexy phenotype-> good phenotype-< good sex life-> exaggeration of trait
Competing for mates: Based on strength, the stronger one who wins gets the
Good phenotype->good phenotype-> good sex life-> exaggeration of trait
Mammals: hairy, endothermic, prey, see in the dark (nocturnal), 300mya, warm
blooded, omnivores
Primates: forward facing eyes, tree dwelling, refined hands and feet, shortened
snout, 75-50 mya, large brain
Hominids: Bipedal, humans are their relatives closer than chimpanzees, Big Brains,
Australopithecus, homo habilis, homo sapiens, Neanderthals, homo sapiens sapiens

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
