sometimes organisms that are not closely related look similar because of?
the domain that includes that kingdom eubacteria is?
the scientific organisms and assigning them universally accepted names is known as?
in good system of classification, organisms placed into a particular group are less similar to each other than they are to organisms in other groups? T/F
what is the genus of the grizzly bear Ursus arctos?
Ursus because the genus is always capitalized
a group of organization in taxonomy is called a taxonomic category or?
the largest taxonomic category in linnaeus’s system of classification is the 1)______ and the smallest is the 2)______
what two kingdoms did Linnaeus name?
animalia and plante
why do biologist use a classification system to study the diversity of life?
they use it to name and group the organisms in a logical manner
what traits did Linnaeus consider when classifying organisms?
linnaeus tried to group organisms according to biologically important characteristics
What problems are faced by taxonomists who rely on body structure comparisons?
It was a difficult to make a decision on which similarities and difference are most important
Darwins theory of evolution changes the way biologist thought about classification?T/F
How do biologist now group organisms into categories?
Biologists group them into categories that represent lines of evolutionary descent but not just physical similarities
Genera places within a family should be less closely related to one another than to members of any other family?T/F
The strategy of grouping organisms together based on their evolutionary history is called?
Characteristics that appear in recent parts of a lineage but not in its older members are called?
A diagram that shows the evolutionary relationships among a group of organisms is called a(an)?
Derived characters are used to construct a Cladogram?T/F
Some organisms do not have DNA and RNA?T/F
How do similarities in genes show that humans and yeast share a common descent?
Humans and yeast have a gene that codes for a myosin protein. This similarities at the molecular level indicates a shared common ancestry
A model that uses DNA comparisons to estimate the length of time that two species have been evolving independently is know as a(an)?
A molecular clock relies on the repeating process?
Why are only neutral mutations useful for molecular clocks?
Neutral mutations make up in the DNA of diff species at about the same rate because they are unaffected by natural selection
The degree of dissimilarity in DNA sequences is an indication of how long ago two species shared a common ancestor?T/F
Why are there many molecular clocks in a genome instead of just one?
Some genes accumulate mutations faster than others
The scientific view of life was more complex in Linnaeus time?T/F
What fundamental traits did Linnaeus use to separate plants from animals?
Animals were mobile organisms and they use food for energy and plants are green, photosynthetic organisms that use energy from the sun
What type organisms were later places in kingdom Protista?
Microorganisms were later placed in this kingdom
Mushroom, yeast, and mold have been places in their own kingdom which is called?
Why did scientists place bacteria in their own kingdom the monera?
Bacteria lack nuclei, mitochondria, and chloroplast
What are the two groups in which monera is separated?
A more inclusive category than any other including the kingdom is the?

Have used molecular analyses
All members of the domain bacteria are parasites?T/F
Many members of the domain archaea can survive only in the absence of oxygen?T/F
They include slime molds and giant kelp
They include mosses and ferns
They have no cell wall or chloraplasts
The science that specializes in the classification of an organism is?
