1. There are many challenges that organisms must meet to survive. Describe two challenges and explain how plants and animals are able to meet these challenges. Be specific about structures (anatomy) involved and molecules (physiology) involved.
2. Describe two evolutionary adaptations of vertebrates and how they correlate with function.
3. Give four specific examples of regulation of processes, two in the Plant Kingdom and two in the Animal Kingdom and then describe each of them. Be as specific as possible.
4. Compare and contrast the major anatomical and physiological aspects of circulation in a plant, insect, and human.
5. Describe two reasons why a giant insect is not possible.
6. Describe a specific signal transduction pathway in the plant kingdom and one example in the animal kingdom.
7. Looking at the digestion system, reproductive system, circulatory system, and gas exchange systems of humans give an example for each these systems of how form and function are correlated.
8. Describe two important ways that the plant kingdom and animal kingdom are dependent on each other.
9. Compare and contrast how the plant and animal kingdom defend themselves.
10. The flow and exchange of energy between an organism and its surroundings involves transformation of one form of energy to another. Describe this flow of energy from producers to consumers in a step by step fashion. Be specific about key molecules for both producers and consumers. Where does energy originate? What is oxygen’s role in this flow?
