They belong to the same genus, but not species. Since they belong to the same genus, they automatically belong to the same family, order, class, phylum, kingdom and domain also. p537
Put the following terms in order from largest group to smallest as far as the number of species that belong to each: Class, Domain, Family, Genus, Kingdom, Order, Phylum, Species,
Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species (Remember the phrase, "Did King Phillips court order fresh grilled salmon?") p537
A genus is composed of a number of related ____.
Cat is a(n) _______ name that is different from country to country or language to language but Felis catus is a _______ name that is used by all scientists throughout the world.
common, scientific p537
What genus does Ursus maritimus belong in?
Ursus (the first part of a scientific name is always the name of the genus to which the organism belongs) p537
Homo sapien belongs to which species?
sapien (the second name of the scientific name is always the species name to which the organism belongs) p537
The animals Panthera leo (lion) and _____ tigris (tiger) belong to the same genus.
In biology, an evolutionary innovation is also referred to as a(n) ____.
shared derived character (for example, feathers were an evolutionary innovation that set feathered dinosaurs, and later, birds, apart from all other reptiles. Therefore feathers are a type of derived characteristic that today would only be seen in birds and not other animals) p543
The branch of biology concerned with naming and classifying the diverse forms of life is called _____.
The second broadest taxonomic category after domain is called _____.
Similarities in structure due to similar natural selection pressures instead of common ancestry are called analogies and are due to ______ evolution.
Homologies (phenotypic and genetic similarities due to shared ancestry) may look quite different from each other due to ____ evolution.
Name the three domains and label each as being either prokaryotic or eukaryotic.
Which prokaryotic domain seems to be most closely related to the Eukarya based on molecular studies?
Archaea (Analysis of other genes however suggest that the domain bacteria might be more closely related to Eukarya. For example, genes that influence metabolism in yeast are more similar to those in the domain Bacteria. To further complicate matters, horizontal gene transfer between domains early on make it difficult to know where genes originated from) p552
From which domain are chloroplasts and mitochondria thought to have originated from?
_____ is the process by which genes are transferred from one genome to another through mechanisms such as viral infection, exchange of transposable elements or plasmids, and perhaps even the fusion of organisms.
Horizontal gene transfer (It appears that there may have been horizontal gene transfer between bacteria and early eukaryotic organisms) p553
