  • Examinations All machine-graded exam questions
    must be answered with a 2 pencil. NO MAKE UP
    EXAMS WITHOUT PRIOR PERMISSION. In case of
    illness, a note from your physician is required.
    A personal matter requires a note from the Dean
    of Students (P202 Peabody Hall). ANY MAKE UP
    EXAMS MAY BE IN AN ESSAY FORMAT. There are three
    noncumulative exams and a final which is
    cumulative. Each lecture exam is worth 100
    points. Total points possible 400. All grades
    will be assessed on total of exam scores (out of
    400 possible points). A final grade of gt90 is
    guaranteed an A, gt80 guaranteed a B, etc. We
    reserve the right to curve downward (i.e., be
    more generous). Any curve will be decided upon
    only AFTER ALL GRADES ARE IN, so DO NOT ASK US
    ABOUT A CURVE BEFORE THEN. NO EXTRA CREDIT IS
    ALLOWED.
  • Academic Honesty The Honor Code reads We,
    the members of the University of Florida
    community, pledge to hold ourselves and our peers
    to the highest standards of honesty and
    integrity. You must sign your exam papers to
    confirm that you neither gave nor received
    unauthorized aid in taking the exam.
  • EXAMS WILL BE GIVEN ON THE FOLLOWING DATES. EXAM
    ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY.
  • Exam I Friday, February 8, In Class Period
    McCarty C 100 (MCC 100)
  • Exam II Tuesday March 25, In Class Period -
    McCarty C 100 (MCC 100)
  • Exam III Wednesday April 23, In Class Period -
    McCarty C 100 (MCC 100)
  • Final according to UF schedule TBA
  • Many students experience test anxiety and other
    stress related problems. Self help guides for
    students are available through the Counseling
    Center (301 Peabody Hall, 392-1575) and at their
    website http//www.counsel.ufl.edu
  • Stress For students with test anxiety or
    stress-related problems, self help guides are
    available at the Counseling Center, 301 Peabody

    http//www.counsel.ufl.edu/.

  • Note Attendance is required. Makeup notes
    are not available. You are expected to be in
    class. You are responsible for all announcements
    made in lecture and/or posted on the class
    webpages.
  • Exams are available for review for one week only
    after each exam. You may not review previous
    exams, other than the final, after the semester
    has ended. Challenges to exam questions must be
    submitted in writing within one week. Scantrons
    are not available for individual student review.
  • There is no extra credit. Please do not request
    individual special treatment at the end of the
    semester because we do not adjust grades for
    individuals for ANY reason. Plan to do well on
    all exams from the beginning of the semester.
  • All email correspondence must be from your
    ufl.edu account, must have your full name in the
    body of the email, and in the subject line you
    must identify the course in which you are
    enrolled. Emails not meeting these requirements
    may not be answered.

BSC 2010 Who Am I?
  • Dr. Joan Herrera
  • Department of Zoology
  • Office 3175 MCCA Phone 213-2498
  • Office Hours T/Th period 3 for the first five
    weeks of the semester. I will also have office
    hours M/F 8 9 in Carr 322A for the rest of the
    semester
  • Marine Invertebrate Larval Ecologist
  • PhD University of Florida, 1998

5
BSC 2010 Important Exam Stuff
  • Four exams.
  • 33 multiple choice questions per exam (100 points
    per exam). Maximum of 400 points for the course.
  • Exams (except the final) are not cumulative, but
    concepts build on one another in the course and
    you are expected to have a basic high school
    background in biology, chemistry and algebra.
  • There are extensive study guidelines on the class
    webpage.
  • Class attendance is required and you are expected
    to check the webpage periodically. Please do not
    contact instructors asking for information that
    is regularly presented in class. Example Where
    we are in the material and which chapters will be
    on the exam.

6
BSC 2010 Exam Philosophy
  • Lecture is emphasized, but also study the notes
    and read the text Campbell Reece 7th Edition
    Biology
  • Exams are based on lectures, notes and text, but
    with more emphasis on the lectures and notes. An
    A requires that you demonstrate critical
    thinking skills. That is you are able to
    apply concepts to synthesis questions on the
    exams.
  • ASK QUESTIONS before the exam is better than
    after.
  • COME BY MY OFFICE but avoid the exam rush time.
  • EMAIL ME herrera_at_zoo.ufl.edu. I do respond to
    properly formatted emails.

7
BSC 2010 Lecture Notes
  • They are NOT intended to cover all the lecture,
    but to assist note-taking. They are not a
    substitute for coming to class or for taking
    notes.
  • They have gaps not all material is listed in the
    notes. Omissions provide an incentive to attend
    class and take your own notes. Study the notes
    along with the appropriate chapter in the text.
  • Best Bet Attend every class and pay attention.
    Use the notes, but dont completely rely on them.
    Keep up with your studies on an almost daily
    basis. Do not miss exams.

  • Relevance of Science to
  • Your Everyday Life?

10
Biology The Study of Life
  • Properties of Life
  • How do you know something is alive?

11
  • Some properties of life

12
Properties of Life
  • 8. Living things are made of cells.
  • 9. Living things share a common genetic code.

13
1. Order A Hierarchy of Biological Organization
  • Life is Ordered
  • The hierarchy of life extends through many levels
    of biological organization
  • From the biosphere through organisms ?

14
  • From cells to molecules to atoms

15
5. Metabolism Energy Conversion, Chemical Rxns
  • Activities of life
  • Require organisms to perform work, which depends
    on an energy source.
  • Molecules are taken apart for energy
  • Catabolic Metabolism
  • Molecules that makeup the cell are built from
    precursors.
  • Anabolic Metabolism

16
8. A Closer Look at Cells
  • The cell
  • Is the lowest level of organization that can
    perform all activities required for life

17
Two Main Forms of Cells
  • All cells share certain characteristics
  • They are all enclosed by a membrane
  • They all use DNA as genetic information
  • There are two main forms of cells
  • Eukaryotic
  • Prokaryotic

18
  • Eukaryotic cells
  • Are subdivided by internal membranes into various
    membrane-enclosed organelles
  • Prokaryotic cells
  • Lack the kinds of membrane-enclosed organelles
    found in eukaryotic cells

19
9. The Cells Heritable Information
  • Cells contain chromosomes made partly of DNA, the
    substance of genes
  • Which program the cells production of proteins
    and transmit information from parents to offspring

20
  • The molecular structure of DNA
  • Accounts for it information-rich nature

21
Emergent Properties A Consequence of Order
  • Biological systems are much more than the sum of
    their parts
  • A system
  • Is a combination of components that form a more
    complex organization
  • Due to increasing complexity
  • New properties emerge with each step upward in
    the hierarchy of biological order

22
Diversity is a hallmark of life yet all life is
related
23
Grouping Species The Basic Idea
  • Taxonomy
  • Is the branch
  • of biology that
  • names and
  • Classifies
  • species
  • according to a
  • system of
  • broader and
  • broader groups

24
The Three Domains of Life
  • At the highest level, life is classified into
    three domains
  • Bacteria
  • Archaea
  • Eukarya

25
  • Domain Bacteria and Domain Archaea
  • Consist of prokaryotes
  • Domain Eukarya, the eukaryotes
  • Includes the various protist kingdoms and the
    kingdoms Plantae, Fungi, and Animalia

26
  • Lifes three domains

27
Unity in the Diversity of Life
  • As diverse as life is
  • There is also evidence of remarkable unity
