  3. Mendel controlled how the pea plants were _________.
  4. Pollination occurs when pollen grains produced in the male reproductive organs, or _______, are transferred to the female reproductive organ called a ______.
    anthers, stigma
  5. ____-pollination occurs when pollen is transferred from the ______ of a flowere to the _____ of either the same flower or a flower from the smae plant.
    self, anthers, stigma
  6. _____-pollination involves ___________ from the flowers of seperate plants.
    cross, fertilization
  7. Pea plants usually reproduce by ____-pollination.
  8. Plants that are _____ for a trait always produce offsping with that same trait.
  9. The term ______ denotes plants that are pure for a specific trait.
  10. Mendel produced __(#) strains of pea plants each representing a pure trait
  11. The first generation or _______ generation is abbreviated ___.
    parental, P2
  12. Cross pollination of two contrasting strains was used to produce the next generation. These offspring are called the first ______, or ___ generation
    filial, F1
  13. Allowing the F1 generation to self-pollinate produced the next generation of offspring, which are called the second _____ or ___ generation
    filial, F2
  14. When Mendel crossed a plant pure for green pods with one pure for yellow pods all of the offspring has ____ pods.
  15. When the F1 green pod plants were ____-pollinated the resulting f2 plants were about 3/4 green pods and about 1/4 yellow pods.
  16. Mendel concluded that there must be something in the plant that controlled the expression of a trait, he called these ________.
  17. In every cross there seemed to be a ________ factor which was expressed and a recessive factor which disappeared in the F1 but reapperated in the F2 generation.
  18. Mendel concluded that factors seperate during the formation of _______(reproductive cells), and that each parent may only contribute one factor for each trait to offspring.
  19. What principle is this: A trait controlled by a recessive factor had no observable effect on an organism's appearence when it was paired with a trait controlled by a dominant factor.
    The Principle of Dominance
  20. What principle is this: A pair of factors is segregated, or seperated during the formation of gametes
    The Principle of Segregation
  21. What principle is this: Factors for different characteristics are distributed to gametes independently.
