1. A bacteriologist is studying two asexually reproducing strains of E. coli. The two require different amounts of trace minerals for survival; on these grounds, the bacteriologist determines that they are separate species. In making his determination, he is using which species concept or concepts?
A) biological species concept
B) ecological species concept
C) morphospecies concept
D) phylogenetic species concept
E) None of the answer options is correct.

 

 

2. The figure below shows a ring species complex for seven populations of salamander. The seven populations are arranged around a low valley that the salamanders cannot cross.

 

Data from: http://www-tc.pbs.org/wgbh/evolution/library/05/2/images/l_052_05_l.jpg

A) reinforcement.
B) pre-zygotic isolation.
C) post-zygotic isolation.
D) ecological isolation.
E) temporal isolation.

 

 

3. The figure below shows an example of a ring species complex for seven populations of salamander. The seven populations are arranged around a low valley that the salamanders cannot cross.

Which of the following statements BEST reflects the spread of alleles between E.e. crocreatur and E.e. klauberi?

A) These two populations do not share any alleles because they are geographically separated from one another.
B) These two populations share alleles, but alleles in E.e. crocreatur that are present in E.e. klauberi arrived in that population by travelling through the “ring” of other species.
C) These two subspecies probably arose through allopatric speciation when the valley in the center divided an original population.
D) The original population probably covered the entire distribution shown in the figure, but when the valley formed the different populations speciated.

 

 

4. A drawback of the biological species concept is that it CANNOT be applied to:
A) populations of a single species living in different places.
B) plants, which do not physically come in contact with each other when transferring gametes the way that animals do.
C) highly polymorphic species.
D) extinct and asexual organisms.
E) All of these choices are correct.

 

 

5. Ring species such as the greenish warbler complicate the biological species concept because:
A) at least some of their populations are reproductively isolated from one another but can still exchange genetic material.
B) at least some of their populations overlap spatially, but individuals in those populations do not interbreed with one another.
C) individuals in at least some populations interbreed with individuals from other species.
D) ring species comprise populations that are in the process of allopatric speciation.
E) None of the other answer options is correct.

 

 

6. In some large groups of plants, including dandelions, oaks, and willows, the biological species concept is complicated because the process of _____ allows gene flow to occur between good _____ that can be easily distinguished based on appearance.
A) hybridization; morphospecies
B) hybridization; ecological species
C) allopatric speciation; ring species
D) polyploidy; evolutionary species
E) polyploidy; ring species

 

 

7. Two individuals of opposite sex are members of the same species if they:
A) look similar.
B) similarly.
C) they share genetic information.
D) can produce fertile offspring.

 

 

8. Two populations are the same species if their members can potentially breed with each other.
A) True
B) False
