Scientific investigations require ethical behavior. _________________________


 5. 

Most scientific investigations begin with observations that lead to universal laws. _________________________


 6. 

hypothesis is a possible explanation that can be tested by observation or experimentation. _________________________


 7. 

The control group and the experimental group are identical except for one variable. _________________________


 8. 

hypothesis is a general explanation for a broad range of data. _________________________

In the event of a lab accident, one thing you should always do is remain calm. _________________________


 14. 

Biology is the study of nonliving things. _________________________


 15. 

A student who wants to study bacteria would take microbiology classes. _________________________


 16. 

Reproduction insures ongoing generations of both one-celled organisms and frogs. _________________________


 17. 

Homeostasis is the maintenance of a stable internal environment in spite of changes in the external environment. _________________________


 18. 

The bacterium that causes cholera is an example of a pathogen. _________________________


 19. 

Scientists discovered that predicting the spread of cholera involves understanding reproductive behavior of plankton. _________________________


 20. 

The study of all the factors in the spread of cholera in human populations is an example of ecology. _________________________


 21. 

Scientists in the 21st century are better able to prevent disease because of their improved understanding of biology. _________________________


 22. 

The completion of the Human Genome Project was one minor contribution to the ability to cure disease. _________________________

Surrounding a drug compound with a layer of atoms that allows for the slow release of the drug is an example of genetic engineering. _________________________


 28. 

Making a new kind of fastener modeled on the way an aquatic animal fastens onto rocks on the ocean floor is an example of nanotechnology. _________________________


 29. 

Biometrics involves analyzing large amounts of data on biological characteristics. _________________________


 30. 

Unique genetic traits, such as hair color, are the most important source of data for biometrics. _________________________


 31. 

Advances in biotechnology have been slowed by ethical concerns. _________________________


 32. 

The ethics of different kinds of biotechnology will be decided by individuals and scientists. _________________________


 33. 

One good way to protect the environment is to learn more about it. _________________________


 34. 

Environmental science involves neither the study of organisms nor their physical surroundings. _________________________


 35. 

One reason that wildlife biologists collect DNA samples from endangered species is the hope that these species can be cloned if they become extinct. _________________________


 36. 

Genetic engineering is used to track the movements of animals in the wild. _________________________


 37. 

Community environmental groups make problems for environmental research. _________________________
