Question description

Please be thorough and provide as much detail as you can without adding ancillary facts that do not add to the answer. In other words, be direct but detailed. These questions are intended to make you think and start to put the different concepts together to come up with well thought out, coherent answers. Answers are usually 100-150 words, so the full two pages are not required. I have attached the 4 short questions in a PDF and DOCX file.

Zoology Final Free Response Instructions: Please be thorough and provide as much detail as you can without adding ancillary facts that do not add to the answer. In other words, be direct but detailed. These questions are intended to make you think and start to put the different concepts together to come up with well thought out, coherent answers. 1. What are the advantages and disadvantages of a lifestyle as an ectotherm? Consider thermoregulation, metabolism, respiration, circulation, and any other physiological adaptations. In which type of environment would it be best to be an ectotherm? How have ectotherms in the arctic adapted to survive? 2. Your best friend at SBCC is from the Andes mountains in Peru. She is 12th generation Peruvian, and was born and lived her first 18 years of life in Cusco, Peru at 11,000 feet. You are 8th generation Santa Barbarian (sea level) and have lived here your whole life. You two run the school track together every Tuesday and Thursday but you can never run as fast or as far. Compare your physiology to hers and explain why. What happens physically and physiologically to you when you go home with her for the summer? 3. You lost your pet dog At Joshua Tree National Park on Father's Day weekend (the desert with average daily temps of 120°F). What physiological struggles will your pet have? What might they do to cope? Consider its thermoregulation, metabolism, behavior, and other physiological effects. 4. Honey, I shrunk the kids! Apart from the obvious challenges of vacuum cleaners and predatory house cats, consider the physiological changes that would occur, or that would be necessary for normal body function, if these children were miniaturized to about 1/100 original body size (in direct 1:1 proportion). Discuss in detail physiological changes or problems related to metabolic rate, scaling of physiological processes, temperature regulation, osmoregulation, energy intake, respiratory physiology, and/or any other area of environmental adaptation discussed this semester. You may assume that these children are in a comfortable home (about 75°F) and encounter periods of strenuous exertion when evading predators.
