A certain segment of DNA can be used as a molecular clock. Its rate of mutation is one mutation per 15 million years. Examine the DNA segments from two different species: Species A: GTTGAGCTAGTATGGACC Species B: GATAAGCTAGTAAGGTCA Using this example, explain how this information can be used to determine how long ago these two species shared a common ancestor. Be sure to answer this question in paragraph form using complete sentences.

Answer and explanation;

  • This can be done by DNA sequencing which is the process of determining the accurate order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule.
  • By doing a DNA sequencing for the two sequences of DNA from the two species it will help compare the number of random mutations which have occurred in a molecular clock in the two species - that is, seeing how different the sequences are.
  • This will make it possible to infer how long ago the species diverged.



These species differ in 5 nucleotides.

This number should be multiplied by the rate of mutations; that is;

5 × 15 million years =75 million years.

Which events may cause long-term changes in climate?

The answer is Changes in the shape of earth orbit.

If the earth's revolution put the planet nearer to the sun, then the global heats of the planet would increase forever. Conversely, if the orbit shift puts the earth distant from the sun, then the earth global heat would drop forever. Hence the change in orbit is significant factor which can hamper the climate on earth and produces long term effects.

In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina caused significant damage in several states along the Gulf Coast, including Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Thousands of people were evacuated from their homes due to flooding and other damage that was caused by the storm. Which type of limiting factor was Hurricane Katrina? density-independent factor density-dependent factor population-dependent factor population-independent factor

The correct answer is a density-independent factor.  

Density-independent factor refers to any factor that restricts the population size, and whose influence is not reliant on the number of people in the population. An example of such a factor is a hurricane that will eradicate or kill all the individuals of the population, which comes under its influence irrespective of whether the size of the population of large or small.

What method can scientists use to determine the absolute age of a rock?


There possible way of finding the age of fossils/rock is radioactive dating


Elements may exist in different isotopic forms. For example C-12 and C-14 are the isotopes of C element. Now C-14 is a radioactive isotope and we know that naturally occurring unstable radioactive isotopes decay over the course of time. The rate is given by the half life of that radioactive isotope, usually given in units of years. We can calculate the ratio of observed abundance of that radioactive isotope and its decay product in the rock we are studying. This is the principle of radioactive dating.

Describe how a plasmid can be genetically modified to in clude a piece of foreign DNA that alters the phenotype of bacterial cells transformed with the modified plasmid. Describe a procedure to determine which bacterial cells have been successfully transformed.

A plasmid is a circular DNA found in bacterial.A plasmid can be modified into another through a process called genetic engineering. In this mechanism, a plasmid is taken from one bacterial into another bacteria. the enzyme used in this process is called restriction enzyme ( found naturally in bacterials), to begin, we first isolate the gene we are using from it's host, then the plasmid is removed and they are joined together. now the plasmid has part it's own and a foreign DNA. they then multiply and produce more of the target cells. a typical example is human and insulin production as described below 

in the past, people with diabetes have not been able to produce enough insulin protein. insulin from cows and pigs have been used to treat diabetes through this process of genetic engineering.

A study was conducted to test the effectiveness of Seeing Eye Dogs. People with different ranges of vision loss were included in the study. Which question would help in determining whether the conclusion above is valid? A. What was the average age of the people in the study? B. What was the most common occupation of people in the study? C. How many people in the study had a pet? D. How many people in the study had hearing problems?


The correct answer will be option-B.


In the given study, the people were selected with different ranges of vision loss to study the effectiveness of seeing by looking at the dogs of an eye.

These persons showed variance in their ability to see as the vision depends on the age along with occupation they were in or they are in.  The strongest factor that influences the ability to see was the occupation which leads to different ranges of vision.

Thus, Option-B is the correct answer.

Physical limiting factors of an ecosystem are such things as?

An example: There is a population of rabbits. A population of foxes eat these rabbits. The adding number of foxes depends of the adding number of available prey, in this case the rabbits. If there is a decrease in the number of rabbits, there will also be aa decrease in the number of foxes. This all happens because the foxes have to little rabbits to eat to survive. Rabbits are in this case the limiting factor for the growth of the population of foxes.

Shown above: an example of a biotic (physical) limiting factor.

I need help with five multiple choice marine science questions. 1)When severe weather damages the plant life in an ecosystem, what effects might this have on other organisms in the same ecosystem? a)- Other organisms could starve or have to leave the area if they depend on the plants as food. b) -Other organisms could change their behavior to take the place of the plants in the ecosystem. c )-Other organisms would not be affected. d )-Other organisms could replace the plant energy with radiant energy from the sun. 2)As the climate changes, the average ocean temperature is rising. Using this information, predict what will most likely happen to El Niño events in the future. a)-El Niño events will intensify because they rely on warmer water sinking to the seafloor. b)-El Niño events will intensify because they will build on the already warm waters at the equator. c)-Some El Niño events will be stronger, but most will be weaker because the ocean currents are unpredictable. d)-El Niño events will become more similar to La Niña events and establish a new weather pattern. 3)Which of the following examples is the most likely way severe weather can negatively affect the biodiversity of a marine ecosystem? a)-A severe thunderstorm brings rain and wind to an intertidal zone. b)-A storm surge from a hurricane floods a coastal area. c)-A tornado causes a waterspout. d)-A blizzard adds snow and ice to an arctic glacier. 4)El Niño events are characterized by warmer than normal ocean temperatures near the equator in the Pacific Ocean. Which weather events are most likely to occur as a result? a)- Increased rainfall across the eastern Pacific Ocean b)-Decreased flooding across the eastern Pacific Ocean c)-Drought along the South American Pacific coastline d)-Colder winter along the South American Pacific coastline 5)According to the Severe Weather Activity worksheet, El Niño events most likely occurred during which of the following years? a)-2006 and 2015 b)-1997, 2006, and 2015 c)-1997 and 2015 d)-1997 and 2006

1. The answer is A. The eradication of plants in an ecosystem would devastate the food web in the habitat. This is because plants are primary producers and significant as conduits of energy into a food web. Plants convert radiant energy from the sun to biomass through photosynthesis. This energy then transferred up the food chain through various form of interaction such as predation.

2. The answer is B. Global warming causes water at the equator to be even warmer above normal temperatures. This fans the upwelling of cold water from below the ocean floor and causes an even greater disparity of temperatures across the Pacific ocean. This subsequently fans the trade winds hence warming the air even more and causing severe storms.

3. The answer is B. The flooding of the coastal area due to hurricanes destroys the biodiversity of the ecosystem by physically destroying the habitat and by drowning organisms such as affecting a whole species population. This upsets the balance of the ecosystem and makes it prone to even further deterioration.

4. The answer is A. When the surface ocean waters at the Pacific ocean warm at the equator, there is an upwelling of cooler ocean waters from the bottom of the ocean., The warm currents along with trade move towards the east and met the South American coastline where they bring in heavy rainfall. Conversely, the northwestern region of the Pacific experiences drought.

5. The answer is C. Elnino and La Nina occurs at a frequency of approximately two(2) to seven (7) years. The phenomenon usually lasts nine (9) to twelve (12) months. El Ninos are more frequent than La Ninas. Their peak effect is usually felt around December and January. The strongest El Nino was the one that occurred in 1997.
