Re: Differences between phenotype and genotype

genotype think gene. this is about what is physically there in your genome. what alleles you have for a particular gene, whether you are heterozygous or homozygous etc. phenotype is about what can be told from the outside or the products of the gene. e.g. blue eyes, blood type, to less noticeable th...

Clade v. Phylum

Thanks in advance!

modes of Pollination?

Hi, I'm teaching myself AP biology so this question is just for my own benefit and not for a grade. In one of the study aids I'm using it asks for five modes of pollination and a description of a feature of a flower that aids pollination of this type. I came up with animals, wind, and water. For the...

Some of the study things I use don't have answer keys and that is mostly fine but occasionally I'm n...
