B1.6 Reason for variety

  • Organisms are adpated to their surroundings.
  • they have variations in their characteristics that allow them to survive in their habitats.
  • organisms living near deep-sea hydrothermal vents cope with big tempreature changes, complete darkness and huge pressure.
  • some characteristis show variation between induviduls of the same species.
  • discontinous variation in characteristics is ususally caused by the instructions within your cells and is called genetic variation. 
  • normal distribution curve shows the most individual measures within the middle of the range in variation. there are a fewer indivudals with measurments at the extremes of the range. 
  • Continous variation is often controlled by genes and the environement.
  • aquired characteristic ~ a characteristic that is changed by the environement rather than inherited from your parents.
  • environemental variation ~ diffrences between the characteristics of organisms caused by their environement. 
  • genetic variation ~ diffrent characterisitcs as a result of muation or reproduction. 
  • qualitative data ~ two sets od data compare both / they are descriptions.
  • quantitative data ~ numerical values.
