material responsi le for heredity. (n 1:#3$ using information collected y other scientists$ an American iologist and an 4nglish physicist uilt a threedimensional model of 23A. ,hese discoveries est illustrate the importance of — a. replication of results . colla orative efforts among scientists c. recent improvements in the scientific method d. independent research

1#. (200"-31) +hich of the follo!ing scientific achievements est represents a colla orative effort among scientists* a. @regor 6endel;s study of pea plants ena led ,homas 6organ to ecome the first to locate a gene on a chromosome in 2rosophila. . Anton van .eeu!enhoe% invented the microscope in the 1600s$ !hich !as later used y others to study cells. 1:. (200#-1) +hat is the total magnification used to vie! c. 0o ert Aoch studied infectious diseases$ and these onion cells through this microscope setup* .ouis Basteur demonstrated that life only a. #0 . "00 c. "0 d. 10 comes from life. d. Crancis 9ric% and 5ames +atson !or%ed together to design the dou le-heli= model of 23A. 16. (2002-") (n 1:2/$ the scientist Ale=ander Cleming !as trying to gro! the acterium -taphylococcus$ and y chance$ discovered that it !ould not gro! in the presence of a mold that he named Benicillium. (n 1:3:$ 4rnst 9hain and 8o!ard Clorey purified penicillin$ and in 1:"1$ penicillin !as first used to treat acterial diseases. (n 1:"#$ Ale=ander Cleming$ 4rnst 9hain$ and 8o!ard Clorey received the 3o el Bri&e in medicine for the discovery and isolation of penicillin. ,hese facts sho! that — a. Clorey and 9hain unfairly used Cleming;s !or% and should not have received the 3o el Bri&e . !henever possi le$ the 3o el Bri&e should e given to more than one person c. scientific progress often re>uires the efforts of many people !or%ing together d. chance plays no role in scientific discoveries 11. (200#-") A iology class in <irginia conducted a survey of the plant species found on their school grounds. ,hey found several plants that they didn;t recogni&e. +hat resources !ould e most helpful to the class in identifying the plants and determining if they !ere introduced as e=otic species* a. Cossil records and historical society pu lications . <irginia ne!spapers and science )ournals c. <irginia native plant chec%lists and plant identification %eys d.

20. (2001-1/) ,he picture sho!s a coverslip correctly eing lo!ered onto a slide. ,his method is used ecause it — a. prevents the escape of microorganisms found in the !ater . reduces the possi ility of air u les on the slide c. prevents the coverslip from moving d. allo!s microorganisms to move freely in the !ater 21. (200"-"") 4arly classification systems consisted of t!o %ingdomsE Blantae and Animalia. +hat scientific development allo!ed ta=onomists to esta lish the 6onera and Brotista %ingdoms* a. 2evelopment of Aoch;s postulates . 9reation of electrophoresis c. 2iscovery of 23A d. (nvention of the electron microscope 22. (2006-23) As part of their training$ iologists learn the history of developments in their field of interest. +hich est e=plains the importance of this education* a. (t provides ac%ground information since most conclusions from efore 1:#0 have een disproven. . (t gives iologists an understanding of their field so they can e=pand on earlier %no!ledge. c. (t narro!s their field of research ecause most important discoveries in iology have already een made. d. (t allo!s scientists to rule out models that have already een tested.
