    In the spec. it says:
    *Distinguish between conservation and preservation.

    I have the definition for conservation, maintenance of biodiversity etc. but what is the definition of preservation?
    I don't have the textbook definition but conservation involves management e.g. introducing new species/limiting predation, whereas preservation involves leaving things as they are.

    Preservation is keeping an ecosystem exactly as it is and not letting anyone use its resources (only exception being scientific research, obviously)
    Conservation is maintaining an ecosystem and keeping it sustainable so that we can meet our demands but so can future generations.

    Yay I've learnt something!
    THANKS! :hi:

    I'm quite pleased. I've done modules 1 and 2 and will only need and quick look over certain things before the exam, and I'm quietly confident with nodule 3 so I'll do about 2 hours on that today.

    Best of all it's only 12.30, so there's plenty of time yet.

    Does anyone else find that the past questions relating to animal behaviour and human cognition are much are harder than OCR suggests in its questions and from the spec. It seems to me, excuse the pun, that the past paper questions involve more insight... anyone agree?

    Galapagos green turtle or Drosophilia fruit fly or something else that triggers my usually-dormant dyslexia

    Or they might pull one over us and only mention bacteria ! Oh, OCR, you!

    Basically body plans are just a plan of a body that is coded for by genes aka Proteins produced by them.

    Homeotic genes are master control genes for development, 4 points:
    1) Maternal effect genes - determine polarity of the embryo
    2) Segmenetation genes - determine the polarity of each segment
    3) Found in clusters called homeobox clusters, these code for proteins which bind furthur along DNA and act as transcription factors (activing or repressing expression) and so control development of the body
    4) Found in many organisms, including animals plants and fungi and so seems to be universal.

    Extra point: Vitamin A while child embryo is developing causes activation/repression of certain homeobox genes and thus causes mutations. Hence vitamin A in pregnant women is avoided, vitamin A is called a mutagen due to this. Hope that helps

    THANK YOU!!!!

    Thing is though, I've actually learnt the whole of module 1 by heart, and I still majorly fail. I need an A too... gosh I hope they ask questions that are actually relative to the specification. :rolleyes:
