1

Difference between unicellular and multicellular

Unicellular is only made up of one cell, multicellular is composed of more than one.

2

Why do biologists classify organisms?

Biologists classify organisms to organize and keep track of the enormous variety of life forms, to better understand evolutionary distances, and to examine the relationships between organisms. Life on earth is incredibly diverse, with millions of different identified species

3

Use an example to explain how structural features can be used to classify organisms into groups. (e.g. radial symmetry etc)

Has horns, doesn't have horns. Has fins, no fins. Has lungs, has gills. Has wings, doesn't have wings. Gives live birth, gives birth to eggs. Symmetry, exo or endoskeleton. Prokaryotic or eukaryotic

4

What are the 5 kingdoms

Plantae, fungi, protista, monera, animalia

5

Distinguish- vertebrates and invertebrates

Vertebrates has no spine and invertebrates have no spine

6

prokaryotes and protoctistans

Protoctista- Unicellular with a nucleus
Prokaryotes-Unicellular without a nucleus

7

prions, viroids and viruses

Non-living

8

fungi, algae and lichens

Fungi->Algae->lichen

9

suggest why stains are used in the preparation of microscope slides

The stain makes the cell structures more visible

10

state examples of different types of cells (i.e. plant and animal cells) and relate their structure to their function

Plant- Cell wall(protects cells) chlorophyll(allows plants to gather energy)

11

Placental, monotreme and marsupial mammals

Placental: baby is carried in the womb
Monotreme: lays eggs
Marsupial: carries young in pouch

12

state the relationship between cells, tissues, organs, systems and multicellular organism

Cells make up tissues, tissues make up organs, organs make up systems, systems make up multicellular organisms
