Lecture 1
1. According to this class, what is the chemical equation that became possible as a
result of the photosynthetic prokaryotes?
2. According to this class, how many years took place until an important gas
became available for respiration as a result of the equation in the above
question? What was this important gas?
3. How much ATP is yielded in anaerobic growth? How much ATP is yielded in
aerobic growth?
4. What is the chemical equation for oxygen giving rise to the ozone?
5. According to this class, how did O2 and O3 allow evolution to progress?
Lecture 2
Cell Wall
1. Be able to identify the following: cell wall, plasma membrane, vacuole,
tonoplast membrane, chloroplast, cytoplasm.
2. What is the primary cell wall composed of? Do all plant cells have a primary
cell wall? Is it flexible or rigid? Can cells in this layer divide? (Note: No need to
memorize B 1-4 glucose, xylose, or galactourinase, just understand the concept
that plants use a variety of sugars for structural skeleton.)
3. What is the secondary cell wall composed of? Do all plant cells have a
secondary cell wall? Is it flexible or rigid? Can cells in this layer divide?
4. Be able to identify the following: primary cell wall, secondary cell wall, middle
lamella, plasmodesmata.
5. What happens to lignified cells when they are dehydrated or re-hydrated? What
happens to non-lignified cells when they are dehydrated or re-hydrated?
Plastids
1. What are the four characteristics that all plastids have? (Note: No need to
memorize the numbers in “70 copies of approximately 150kb.”)
2. What are the characteristics of the chloroplast? Be able to identify the following:
outer membrane, inner membrane, stroma, thylakoid membrane.
3. There are 2 types of carotenoid pigments. B-carotenes (have/ do not have) –OH
hydroxyl groups in their structure. Xanthophylls (have/ do not have) –OH
hydroxyl groups in their structure.
4. Know the characteristics of and differences between the following plastids:
chloroplast, chromoplast, amyloplast, elaioplast.
5. Be able to reproduce the flowchart starting with the undifferentiated Proplastid,
ending with the different kinds of plastids the Proplastid could differentiate to.

Psalm 103:15 (NKJV)


As for man, his days are like grass;
As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
