Which of the following statements about human evolution is correct? A. Modern humans are the only human species to have evolved on Earth. B. Human ancestors were virtually identical to extant chimpanzees. C. Human evolution has occurred within an unbranched lineage. D. The upright posture and enlarged brain of humans evolved separately. The ecological impacts of warming are manifold. One response has been to reduce seed production my many plants. An example involving phenology and mutualism for this would be: A. Warming accelerates the timing of flowering but not the time for arrival by pollinators and thus reduces pollination and subsequent seed production. B. An insect increases its metabolic rate from warming, requiring it to eat more plants, which reduces seed production. C. Warming induces greater water stress in the summer and this reduces productivity and seed production. D. All of the above The total resources required to sustainably support human activities is described as the ecological footprint. A country can have a larger footprint than actual area because: A. They are extracting resources at non-sustainable rates and imperiling future resources B. They are importing resources from other countries C. Both a and b D. None of the above
The Elements of Life
In biology, the elements of life are the essential building blocks that make up living things. They are carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and sulfur. The first four of these are the most important, as they are used to construct the molecules that are necessary to make up living cells. These elements form the basic building blocks of the major macromolecules of life, including carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids and proteins. Carbon is an important element for all living organisms, as it is used to construct the basic building blocks of life, such as carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids. Even the cell membranes are made of proteins. Carbon is also used to construct the energy-rich molecules adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and guanosine triphosphate (GTP). Hydrogen is used to construct the molecules water and organic compounds with carbon. Hydrogen is also used to construct ATP and GTP. Nitrogen is used to construct the basic building blocks of life, such as amino acids, nucleic acids, and proteins. It is also used to construct ATP and GTP. Oxygen is used to construct the basic building blocks of life, such as carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids. It is also used to construct ATP and GTP. Phosphorus is used to construct the basic building blocks of life, such as carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids.

What is true about the evolution of humans?
Scientific evidence shows that the physical and behavioral traits shared by all people originated from apelike ancestors and evolved over a period of approximately six million years. One of the earliest defining human traits, bipedalism -- the ability to walk on two legs -- evolved over 4 million years ago.
