Laurasia consisted of which of the present day continents?A.North America, Europe, and AsiaB.South America and AfricaC.South America, Africa, Australia, India, and AntarcticaD.Asia, Australia, and AntarcticaQuestion 10 of 20 (worth 1 point)Plate tectonics causes continental drift.True False Question 11 of 20 (worth 1 point)Taphonomists studyA.the classification of fossil speciesB.plate tectonicsC.undersea lifeD.how bone assemblages come to be buriedQuestion 12 of 20 (worth 1 point)There are two bird species on a Midwestern prairie that look very much alike physically and are probably descended from a common ancestor. During courtship, however, the males of one species stands on one leg while looking at the female. The males of the second species uses both feet to drum on the prairie floor. The females will only mate with those males who behave appropriately during courtship.

It is likely that these two skulls representA.different species because they are different in sizeB.likely different breeds of dogs because they show extreme variationC.different paleospecies because they are not identicalD.the same paleospecies and are exhibiting sexual dimorphismQuestion 17 of 20 (worth 1 point)The amount of morphological variation identified in extinct species should beA.no more than seen in sexually dimorphic speciesB.greater than found in extant species of the same typeC.equivalent to the amount of variation present in living speciesD.less than that found in similar modern speciesQuestion 18 of 20 (worth 1 point)The Cenozoic Era is known as the “Age of __”.A.HumansB.MammalsC.DinosaursD.ReptilesQuestion 19 of 20 (worth 1 point)The extinction event 65 million years ago is an example ofA.a mass extinctionB.one species being out competed by another speciesC.when a new predator is introduced into an environmentD.the dangers of continental driftQuestion 20 of 20 (worth 1 point)There is/are __ type(s) of extinction(s), __.A.one / like when a meteor hit earth killing all the dinosaursB.one / caused by the inability to adapt to the environmentC.three / all of which are caused by the environmentD.two / Darwinian and Mass
