- METAPHASE- CHROMOSOMES LINE UP IN CENTER OF CELL
- ANAPHASE- SPINDLE FIBERS PULL CHROMOSOMES TO POLAR REGIONOF CELL
- TELOPHASE- CELLS DIVIDES ITO 2 IDENTICAL DIPLOID CELLS
WHAT IS RNA???
- RIBONUCLEIC ACID:
- MORE PRIMITIVE THAN DNA
- FOUND OUTSIDE CELL NUCLEUS

iN EUKARYOTIC CELLS WHAT ARE GAMETES???
- THEY ARE SEX CELLS
- REPRODUCED VIA MEIOSISSOLE
- PURPOSE TO UNITE WITH ANOTHER GAMETE AND PRODUCE OFFSPRING:
- OVA- F AND SPERM- M
IN EUKARYOTIC CELLS WHAT ARE SOMATIC CELLS????
- THEY ARE COMPONENTS OF BODY TISSUE
- CONSTANTLY RENEWED VIA MITOSIS
- CONTAINS ORGANELLES: MITOCHONDRIA AND RIBOSOMES
Describe a Eukaryotic cells- 1.5 BYA
- multi-celled organisms
- nucleic acids
Describe a Prokaryotic Cell- 3.7 BYA
- no nuclear membrane
- Escherichia coli (e. coli)
- simple internal structure
- largest group of organisms
what are Fixity of Species???
- Fixity of species is in a really basic term the counterpart of evolution.
- This theory says that God had created each species independently at the
- beginning of time, and that each species then remained exactly the same up to the
- present. No evolution, no Extinction, no Natural selection.
what were his interest??

who is malthus???
- wrote an essay on the principles of population
- human pop. can double in size every 25 yrs. but food supply cant increase that fast

- 1st attempt to explain forces behind evolution
- organisms change when environmental forces change
- inheritance acquired characteristics
who is cuvier???
- introduced the concept of extinction through fossils.
- Catastrophism: cataclysmic events occur: earthquakes, storms, volcanic eruptions
what are the subfields of anthro.?
