2. Achievement StandardDemonstrate understanding involves describing plant and animal responses totheir external environment. The description includes: the process(es) within each response and/or the adaptive advantageprovided for the organism in relation to its ecological niche.Demonstrate in-depth understanding involves using biological ideas to explain: how the responses occur why the responses provide an adaptive advantage for the organism inrelation to its ecological niche.Responses are selected from those relating to: orientation in space (tropisms, nastic responses, taxes, kineses, homing,migration) orientation in time (annual, daily, lunar, tidal rhythms) interspecific relationships (competition for resources, mutualism,exploitation including herbivory, predation, and parasitism) intraspecific relationships (competition for resources, territoriality,hierarchical behaviour, cooperative interactions, reproductivebehaviours). External environment will include both biotic and abiotic factors. 3.

Plant Responses Vernalisation flowering or germination after a cold snap Ensures flowering/germination in spring Dormancy Arrested (slowed) plant growth Ensures survival during winter/summer drought Abscission Leaf fall Prevents leaves freezing in winter 23. Jellybeans and AuxinAim: To demonstrate effects of auxin in the shoot.Method:1. Create a shoot with small jellybeans (5 on each side) and half amarshmallow at the top (apical meristem) take a photo2. When exposed to light lollie pop, IAA (choc chips) is released from themarshmallow (apical meristem) and travels to the dark side of the stem take a photo3. The IAA (choc chips) is absorbed into the cells on the dark side, causingthese cells to enlargeslowly remove the choc chips and replace 3 smalljelly beans with large ones on the side opposite to sun one at a time,ensuring the top and bottoms of jellybeans are always touching and themiddle, take a photo each time4. Keep the jellybeans ALL touching and the top two jellybeans ending atthe same point with the marshmallow on the top.Results:5. What happens to the direction of growth? Why? 24. IAA There are many types of Auxins Indole Acetic Acid is involved with cellelongation 25. Auxin Auxin is a plant hormone whichcauses cells to elongate http://www.kscience.co.uk/animations/auxin.htm Auxin is made in the tip, and movesdown the dark side of the shoot,causing the shoot to bend towardsthe stimulus Auxin is soluble in water, but notmica or glass Auxin also moves with gravity tolower side causing elongation andshoots to grow up out of soil 26. Auxin ExperimentsExperiment 1: Effect of IAA on cell elongation in theshoots Rub IAA onto left side of one set of shoots, take beforeand after photos compare Rub IAA onto the right side of a different set of shoots,take before and after photos compareExperiment 2: Effect of IAA on cells in the direction ofgrowth in the roots Soak and grow bean shoots and roots, too 3 cm length Rub IAA onto left side of one set of roots, take beforeand after photos compare Rub IAA onto the right side of a different set of roots,take before and after photos compare 27. Stem CuttingsAim: Investigate the effect of rooting hormone on therate of root development.Method: (tissue culturing) see worksheet1. Sterilize utensils, workspace, containers(the trick isto keep things as sterile as possible so that yougrow plant tissue and not bacteria or fungi.)2. Take cutting, sterilize cutting3. Dip cutting in rooting hormone4. Place one in agar with rooting hormone, and theother in agar without hormone (label!) 28. Auxin in the Root Auxin falls with gravity tothe lower side of theshoot and root In the shoot it causes cellelongation, shoot growsup towards the light In the root it stops thecells elongating, andtherefore the root bendsdown towards the soiland water 29. Auxin MovementAim: To investigate the movement of auxinMethod:1. Set up a box with three plants in2. Plant A cut the tip off (about 2cm)3. Plant B cover the tip with tin foil4. Plant C leave as is5. Put a hole in the box on one side and angle towardslight6. Take a photo after 5 daysResults:Describe what and why each tip responded as it did.What is the adaptive advantage of this type of response?What is the stimulus causing the response? What is thename given to this type of response? 30. Explain what is happening in each experiment andwhy. 31. Page 105:When auxin conc. In roots gets to above__________ppm of auxin the cell growth is_____________When auxin conc. In shoots gets to ________ ppm ofauxin the cell growth is ___________ up until_______ppm when the growth is rapidly inhibited Vine curls around trunk, auxin migrates to nontouching side of vine, causing cell elongation andthe vine curves towards trunk and around it 32. Apical Dominance High concentration of axuin in tip (apical meristem)of tree prevents growth Concentration decreases towards base of tree Adaptive advantage because the top leaves donot shade the leaves underneath Resulting in Xmas tree shape 33.

Auxin moves down from thetip causing cells to elongate and grow upwards.- Gravity causes the shoot on sprouting from the seed to grow upwards, if it needs to curveto do this auxin is released to the lower side (gravity drops it to this side) elongating the cellson this side causing the shoot to bend upwards and grow up and out of the soil- Once exposed to light auxin is released from the tip and travels down the dark side of theshoot causing cell elongation and the shoot to bend towards the light- The advantage of negative geotropism is that the shoot grows in the correct direction toget to sunlight quickly so it can start carrying out photosynthesis- There is no light under the soil so it cannot rely on phototropism. Once exposed to light theplant is a producer and therefore makes its own energy and needs light for the process ofphotosynthesis, growing towards the light increases light intensity and therefore rate ofphotosynthesis and growth 42.

Body Temperature Measure your temperature every 2 hours from the timeyou get up in the morning to the time you go to sleep. Don't eat or drink anything right before you take yourtemperature. Make sure to take your temperature the same wayevery time and that you read the temperature VERYACCURATELY....the differences in your bodytemperature are only a few 0.1 of a degree. Chart your body temperature with time...use the X axisfor "Time of Day" and Y axis for "Body Temperature". Do you see a pattern? 74. Actograms 75.

Worksheet 77. Lunar Questions 78. Photoperiodism response in plants to the changing length of nightShort day plants require short days and long nights flower when the photoperiod is less than the criticallength (10 hours daylight and 14 hours darkness) flower in winter e.g. chrysanthemumsLong-day plants require long days and short nights flower when the photoperiod is greater than the criticallength 14 hours daylight and 10hours darkness). flower in summer e.g. sunflowersDay-neutral plants relatively unaffected by the amount of light per day andwill flower at any time of the year e.g. tomatoes 79. Phytochrome SystemPlants photoperiodic response is controlled by a pigment calledphytochromeThis pigment exists in two forms: Pr also called P665 or P red Pfr also called P725 or Pfar RedDaylight is made up of mainly red light with the wavelength of about665nmAt night mainly far red light is present with a wavelength of about725nm 80. Phytochrome absorbs red light during the day andconverts Pr into Pfr At night Pfr is slowly converted back into Pr If the day is long enough Pfr accumulates and longday plants flower If the day is short and night is long Pr accumulatesand short day plants flower 81. Adaptive Advantages Germinate when greatest chance of survivlal Seeds masting (seeds all produced at same time)not all are eaten Flower at same time so can increase crosspollination Flower when pollinators are active Commercially florist can flash different types oflight to induce flowering for valentines etc 82.

Answers Competition: Tortoises compete with one another as well aswith the wild goats for food. Predation: The Galpagos tortoise was killed by sailors,pirates, and other human visitors during the 19th century. Parasitism: Mites and ticks suck blood from the tortoise. Mutualism: The tortoise is "cleaned" of ticks and mites by theground finches that eat these parasites, and the tortoisebenefits by not losing blood to the parasitic insects. Commensalism: The scientists at the Charles DarwinResearch Station help tortoises survive by raising theendangered young in specialized areas. Humans receive nodirect benefit from this action. 87.

Plant Responses to theBiotic Environment Plant-plant relationships Plant-fungi relationships Plant-animal relationships Plant defences (aggressive) Co-operative relationships 89. Plant-plant relationships Relationships between plants is morecomplex than you might think. Examples Allelopathy this is when a plant may secretea toxic substance from their roots or leavesthat inhibits plants growing near them. E.g. Chaparral bush, black walnut Seed dispersal mechanisms ensures spreadof offspring over a wide area 90. Plant-plant relationships Growing larger leaves to capture available lightwhen it is reduced Plants arranging in layers (stratification) in responseto differing environmental conditions (will haveadaptations enabling them to survive in certainlayers) Epiphytes grow on other trees to gain access tobetter conditions Lianas plant climb up trees 91. Plant-fungi relationshipsMany plants will form relationships withFungi Mycorrhizal fungi form mutualistic relations withmany plant roots. The fungi help the plantroots absorb water and minerals and in returnget organic molecules (nutrients) made by theplant by photosynthesis Obligate mutualistic relationships lichen(made up of algae and fungi) that are obligedto live together. Fungi absorbs water andnutrients and keeps the algae wet and thealgae carries out photosynthesis and providessugars and food for the fungus. 92. Plant-animal relationships Herbivores eat plants by: Grazing Browsing Suck sap Feed on nectar, pollen, fruit and seeds Chew roots Eat gum 93. Plant defences Plants must have strategies to defendthemselves against herbivory: Examples Thorns Divarication Chemicals Low growing point Seed masting Hiding etchttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFRCe65NV44 94. Co-operation in plants Co-operative interactions between plants andother plants, and plant and animals can include Pollination animal pollinators (insects/birds) areattracted by rewards or advertisements Guarding plants by animals Animals gaining protection from thorns Eating fruits and seeds pass through digestive trackand are dispersed 95.

Intraspecific aggressiveresponses Agonistic behaviour Is aggressive Towards members of the same species Involves threats or fighting Determines which competitor gains accessto resources. Especially strong between members of thesame sex e.g. males fighting over females. 111. Intraspecific aggressiveresponses Territories Are established areas for feeding, mating orrearing young, that are defended. Held by aggressive behaviours Usually consist of a lair or nest in the centreof the territory, surrounded by a large homerange that animals cover regularly in searchof food and mates. Only the territory is defended 112. Intraspecific aggressiveresponses Advantages of territoriality Ensures space for each animal Reduces disease Harder for predators to find animals if theyare spread out Reduces fighting Ensures there is enough food for everyone Safe breeding sights that are defended Best genes are handed on to offspring 113. Intraspecific aggressiveresponses Disadvantages of territoriality Males without territories fail to breed as notseen as attractive Losers must spread out to find food ratherthan fight 114. Intraspecific aggressiveresponses Marking and defending Singing Mark with urine Using scent glands Using signals Calling 115. Intraspecific aggressiveresponses Hierarchies when every animal is either above or belowanother (linear hierarchy). There are no equals Forms Pecking Orders (see pg 221-222) Usually established competitively top dog will usually make decisions forthe group Maintained by posture and display 116. Intraspecific co-operativebehaviour Includes Group formation Courtship and pair-bond formation Parental care 117. Group FormationWhen animals join together to co-operativelyundertake tasks E.g. Hunting, defence, protection etc 118. Advantages of forming groupsTeam work while hunting leads toincreased success rate. Less predation as can have membersof the group on look out Older members protect young orweak individuals Large numbers can cause confusionfor predators Breeding sites are located within aboundary that is protected bymembers of a group 119. Disadvantages of groupformation Competition is increased Disease can spread faster Parasites (e.g. fleas) spread faster Increases conflict between members 120. Courtship/pair-bond Refqourirmes cao-toipoernation, suppression of aggressivebehaviours and communication. Usually females make the choice who they matewith, but both partners need to make sure; They are the same species Both fertile Both fully prepared to mate. See 225 121. Courtship Males usually will compete for theattention of females by; Competing with other males by fighting orritualised combat Compete indirectly by attracting femalesby displays and adornments E.g. antlers in deer, brightly coloured feathersin peacocks, singing and dancing of manybird species, producing pheromones. 122. Pair-bond relationship A stable relationship between animals ofthe opposite sex that ensures co-operativebehaviour on mating andrearing of the young E.g. turns, albatross 123. Parental Care Survival depends on successfully breedingadequate numbers of offspring. Can be achieved by to possible strategies R-strategy produce large numbers ofunprepared offspring with a low chance ofsurvival K-strategy produce few, well preparedoffspring which have a high chance ofsurvival See 227 Biozone. 124. Parental Care Degree of parental care depends on thespecies E.g. eggs buried and then abandoned(many fish species), nest constructed anddefended, offspring themselves defended Often those species that have a highdegree of parental care will teach theiroffspring how to find food, where to findwater, how to make a home etc. 125. Reproductive Strategies Monogamy each mating with only onemember of the opposite sex (often for life)Polygyny males mate with many femalesthus fathering many offspringPolygamy dominant males mates with aharem of femalesPolyandry females mate with more thanone malePolygynadry (promiscuity) both male andfemale mate with more than one memberof the opposite sex.See 224 Biozone 126. Achievement StandardDemonstrate understanding involves describing plant and animal responses totheir external environment. The description includes: the process(es) within each response and/or the adaptive advantageprovided for the organism in relation to its ecological niche.Demonstrate in-depth understanding involves using biological ideas to explain: how the responses occur why the responses provide an adaptive advantage for the organism inrelation to its ecological niche.Responses are selected from those relating to: orientation in space (tropisms, nastic responses, taxes, kineses, homing,migration) orientation in time (annual, daily, lunar, tidal rhythms) interspecific relationships (competition for resources, mutualism,exploitation including herbivory, predation, and parasitism) intraspecific relationships (competition for resources, territoriality,hierarchical behaviour, cooperative interactions, reproductivebehaviours). External environment will include both biotic and abiotic factors. 127.
