Life Science: Genes & Molecular Machines
Body cell division in which the nucleus divides
containing the same number of chromosomes. (Happens in all Eukaryota cells asexually)
Steps are Interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, and cytokinesis.
a type of cell division that results in four daughter cells each with half the number of chromosomes of the parent cell, as in the production of gametes (sex cells) and plant spores. (Happens through sexual reproduction)
Steps are Interphase l, prophase I, metaphase I, anaphase I, telophase I, cytokinesis l, interphase ll, prophase II, metaphase II, anaphase II, telophase II and cytokinesis ll.
Types of Cells
An organism whose cells do not have an enclosed nucleus, such as bacteria.
Includes bacteria and blue-green algae.
Cell with a nucleus (surrounded by its own membrane) and other internal organelles.
Includes yeasts, Fungi
An organism's physical appearance, or visible traits
Includes eye color, hair color, height, ect.
An organism's genetic makeup, or allele combinations.
Includes allele combinations such as Aa, bb, Ll, Ee, WW.
Flowering Plants and Seeds
Types and Examples of Seed Dispersal
Different seeds are dispersed in different ways. This includes sedges by water, maple and thistles seeds by wind, burs and pumpkin by animal and sicklepod seeds by mechanical propulsion
Types of seed dispersal include wind, water, animals and mechanical propulsion. These types of seed dispersal are used to drop seeds into new locations to germinate.
Types of Pollination to Reproduce
Cross-pollination is a reproductive process in which pollen from one plant is transferred to the stigma of another plant.
Self-pollination is the transfer of pollen to the stigma of the same plant.
