    Xerophytes adaptations.

    Do you do old spec papers too? Or do you do the all the current spec papers and read tool and tool?
    Do you really think the adaptations will come up? There doesn't seem like that much to write about!!
    Someone suggested mitosis but that was a 4 marker last year so I doubt it; I reckon maybe meiosis as the 6 marker

    They could ask a 6 marker on Xerophtyes. 3 for describing 3 things and 3 for explaining.

    And when was the last time they ever asked about Xereophtyes? I don't even think that word is mentioned in any of the past papers lol

    LOL yeah i've only ever seen a 2 marker xD

    So what would you write about?
    - They are plants that have adaptions which minimise water losses in areas where the loss of water via transpiration exceeds water uptake?
    - The rolling up of leaves, hairy leaves and stomata in grooves traps a region of still air next to the leaf surface, which becomes saturated with water thus there is no water potential gradient so no transpiration.
    - Thick cuticle, increases the diffusion pathway
    - Small surface are to volume ratio, less water lost across the surface

    What are the main points for a 6 marker on meiosis?
    Produces four daughter cells (haploid) - gametes
    Importance:
    - To produce haploid cells
    - Maintains a constant number of chromosomes from one generation to the next
    - The haploid cells will combine during fertilisation to form diploid cells
    - Increases genetic variation by:
    1. Independent Segregation
    2. Crossing over

    I think those are the main things!

    Yeah that would be fine.

    Do you use tool and tool to revise with/ anything else? also do you do the questions in the tool and tool and do you do old spec papers too?/ any form of other questions other than current spec past papers?

    I use these:

    I put them all on cue cards and memorised them all, they've been really helpful with past questions since a lot is just recall. Took me a while to write them down though, so maybe a bit too late. Still - glace over them in the morning tomorrow.

    i dont think many people do that because its not relevant to our current spec

    oh ok.

    There are a pack of questions which are meant to be for this spec but are questions from old spec papers. They seem quite helpful.
