JEOPARDY: Pop and Eco

Milkweed Bugs and Sorting Out Life (Inv 1-2) 100 Q: What distinguishes a true bug from other insects? A: proboscis 200 Q: What is an ecosystem? A: Both biotic and abiotic factors interacting in a given area 300 Q: Where can populations be studied? A: In the laboratory (mice), in the mini-ecosystem (at school), or in its natural surroundings (Jane Goodall) 400 Q: true or false? The main characteristics of all insects are 3 body parts, 8 legs, and both male and female needed for reproduction A: false 500 Q: Why did we observe milkweed bugs for several weeks? A: To obverse population change, a bugs life cycle and to create a livable habitat Finding the Energy 100 Q: What is made during photosynthesis that most living things need to survive? A: oxygen 200 Q: Which is not used during photosynthesis? Carbon dioxide, nitrogen, light, and water A: nitrogen 300 Q: Why did the finches of the Galapagos Islands develop variations in their beak structures? A: To obtain food 400 Q: How does photosynthesis help a heterotroph and an autotroph? A: For a heterotroph, another organism uses photosynthesis to create the food it eats because it is unable to create its own food like an autotroph. 500 Q: Which of these does not belong and why? Herbivore, producer, omnivore, and carnivore A: Producer is an energy/trophic level and the others tell what an organism eats Genetic Variation 100 Q: Phenotype describes _____. A: physical characteristics 200 Q: What type of scientist was Gregor Mendel? A: biologist 300 Q: Is a heterozygous (Aa) gene ever recessive? A: no, it will always produce a dominant trait. 400 Q: which Punnett square is correct for AA and Aa parents? What is the ratio? A: A A A A AA Aa Aa Aa 500 AA Aa AA Aa A a

Q: What provides the genetic code for the features of an organism? A: genes.

More Genetics and natural selection 100 Q: What is the passing of traits from one generation to the next? A: heredity 200 Q: What structures in a cell contain genes? A: chromosomes 300 Q: Over time what would cause a change in the coloration of an organism? A: Natural selection 400 Q: true or false? The diversity of finches on the Galapagos Islands is due to selective breeding. A: false, natural selection 500 Q: true or false? A variation in a population, like color, can allow a population to: reproduce successfully, adapt to an environment, and respond to change. A: true, variation allows populations to survive. Miscellaneous 100 Q: True or false? Phytoplankton is important to the health of oceans A: True. 200 Q: A plant is a _______ in the energy pyramid. A: producer 300 Q: What would happen to a shallow body of water after 1000 years? A: It would become a field. 400 Q: Which of these is a limiting factor? starvation, space (limited), disease, weather, or all of the above. A: all of the above. 500 Q: What carries one half of the genetic information from each parent in sexual reproduction? A: Egg and sperm

Final Jeopardy: Draw a Punnett square that demonstrates whether or not two heterozygous parents can produce an off-spring with a recessive trait. Be sure to explain your answer.
