Transcript of Biology Scavenger Hunt

By: Matthew Foreman THE WETLAND BIOME AP Biology Scavenger Hunt
(Groupings) DIFFERENT BIOMES Desert Biome
Wetland Biome
Disaccharide: Lactose
Polysaccaride: Cellulose LACTOSE Starch LACTOSE CELLULOSE DIFFERENT PROTEINS Complete proteins
Incomplete proteins COMPLETE PROTEINS INCOMPLETE PROTEINS (NUTS) (Cow) The Desert Biome Very little rain, sparse plant life, reptiles are very adaptable to this biome The Wetland Biome Always very moist and humid, aquatic plant life is abundant Potatoes The Freshwater Biome (Lake) limited species diversity since they are often isolated from one another and from other water sources like rivers and oceans Milk is the source of Lactose, all milk products contain lactose Milk Plants (Aloe Vera) All plants contain cellulose for strength and support considered starches Meat from a cow is considered a complete protein because it came from an animal. Cow meat Nuts Nuts are considered incomplete proteins because they are the product of a plant Complex Carbohydrates Bananas are complex carbohydrates Sodas are also considered complex Chicken Meat Chicken meat is also considered a complete protein Organisms in different kingdoms
(Native to Nevada) Bark Scorpion Found in the Southern U.S. (Nevada) and Mexico ANIMAL KINGDOM: PLANT KINDOM: Prickly Pear Cactus Have flattened, pad-like stems. Different alleles for the same trait Eye color is determined on dominant and recessive traits Organisms in different animal phyla Arthropoda Black Widow Spider Chordata Desert Cottontail Organisms in different Plant Divisions
(NATIVE TO NEVADA) Anthocerotophyta (Hornworts) Barrel Cactus Red yuccas Magnoliophyta
(Flowering plants) Characterized by pink
seed-containing flower Organisms in the same class but different orders Aves Geococcyx (Road runner) Reptilia Garter Snake Insecta Fiery Skipper (Hylephila phyleus) Lepidoptera Odonata Dragonfly Coccinellidae(Lady Bug) Coleoptera Organisms in the same order but different family Carnivora Canidae Felidae Organisms on the same level of the food chain Chuckwalla (NATIVE TO NEVADA) Desert Iguana AP Biology Scavenger Hunt Individual items Cacti adapt to desert living by extending their roots to absorb more water. Plant adaptions Corn is able to grow in an environment crowded with other stalks of corn utilizing the same source of water. ATP The use of the protein ATP is used in isometric muscle contraction in the gastrocnemius. In the biceps femoris, ATP is utilized to perform concentric muscle contractions. Animal Adaptions Big horn sheep have adapted to their mountainous environment and are able to jump 18-20 feet across rocky terrain. The Arizona Bark Scorpion has adapted by forming a potent toxin injected into prey through a hole in its barbed stinger. Animal with a segmented body The comb-clawed spider, like all other spiders, has a segmented body. Cockroaches are another example of an organism with a segmented body. Trophic Level The wolf spider is on a higher trophic level than the spider it is consuming. It utilizes a lesser percentage of the energy that the smaller spider has stored. In most cases, the gray fox is the final consumer ,or highest trophic level, in the food chain of their environments. Prokaryote Marigold Barrel cactus All plants are considered prokaryotes. Connective Tissue Blood is considered a connective tissue. Skin is also considered a connective tissue. Endotherm All reptiles are considered Endotherms. Desert Iguana Rattle Snake Fermentation Both beer and wine go through the process of fermentation. Bilateral symmetry The human skeleton is a prime example of bilateral symmetry because almost all structures are identical on both sides. Horned lizards also have bilaterally symmetrical limbs. Asexual Reproduction All plants reproduce asexually. Eukaryote All animals have cells that are considered eukaryotes Pollinator Butterflies are considered pollinators because they spread pollen from plant to plant. Homeostasis
