Surprisingly, a fish’s caudal (tail) fin, is not used for propulsion. Fins are used primarily for stability and steering. In order to swim, a fish needs to be able to flex its body back and forth very rapidly. To create this motion, a fish’s muscles are arranged in a series of waves or segments called myomeres.
Fish have two kinds of muscle fibers, white and red. White myomeres are used for short bursts of swimming. Groupers and other slow- moving fish have almost all white myomeres. Open-sea fish, such as the tuna and mackerel, are capable of cruising at high speed for long periods of time. The blood in their red muscle fibers is rich in a pigment called myoglobin, which can carry large amounts of oxygen. The oxygen nourishes muscle cells, enabling them to work harder for longer periods of time.
Cellular respiration requires the oxidation of fuel that is in the form of organic molecules. In the fish, which of the following is (are) responsible for carrying large amounts of oxygen?
A student used a compound light microscope to obtain data on the concentration of stomates in leaves. The student observed a small area of the lower epidermis of a leaf and counted two stomates in the high-power field of view. The student then observed an area of equal size from the upper epidermis of the same leaf and found no stomates in the high-power field of view. After making these observations, the student should
On dissecting a fish, a biologist saw that it had large quantities of red muscle fibers. From this observation he can assume that this fish:
The scientific name of an animal is printed in italic type and has two parts. The first word (capitalized) is the name of the genus to which the animal belongs. The second word (lower case) is the name of its species within the genus. Here are the English and scientific names of five birds:
I. American robin, Turdus migratorius
II. European robin, Erithacus rubecula
III. European blackbird, Turdus merula
IV. Military macaw, Ara militaris
V. Red-breasted blackbird, Sturnella militaris
