1.Differentiate homoiomerous and heteromerous Lichens

The distribution of algal cells distinguishes lichens into two forms namely

  • Homoiomerous (Alagal Cells evenly distributed in the thallus)
  • Heteromerous (a distinct layer of alagae and fungi present)

2.What is cyclosis?

The movement of cytoplasm is called cytoplasmic streaming or CYLOSIS

3.Define Prions :

  • Prions were discovered by stanley B.Prusiner in the year 1982 and are proteinaceous infectious particles
  • They are the causative agents for about a dozen fatal degenerative disorders of the central nergous system of humans and other animals For Example Creutzfeldt – Jakob Disease (CJD) , Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) – Commonly known as mad cow disease and scrapie disease of sheep

III. Short Answer

1.Why do farmers plant leguminous crops in crop rotations/ mixed cropping

  • Leguminous crops are known for their nitrogen-fixing ability
  • Most of these crops bear symbiotic nitrogen-fixing bacteria in structures which are known as root nodules
  • Due to this reason, leguminous crops play a vital role in crop rotation and the farmers plant this in crop rotations/mixed croping

2.General account of on Lichens.

  • The symbiotic association between algae and fungi is called lichens
  • The legal partner is called phycobionet or photobiont., and the fungal partner is called mycobiont
  • Algae provide nutrion for fungal partner in turn fungi provide protection and help to fix the thallus to the substratum through rhizinae
  • Asexual reproduction takes place through fragmentation, soredia and isidia ,Phycobionts reproduced by akinetes,hormogonia, aplaneospore etc.,
  • Mycobionts undergo sexual reproduction and produced ascocarps

3.What is heterocyst?

  • In some forms of cyanobacteria large colourless cells is found in the terminal or intercalary position called Heterocysts
  • They are invoced innitrogen fixation

4.What are Magnetosomes?

5.Write the living and non-living characteristic features of Viruses.

IV.Write in detail.

1.Write the steps involved in Gram staining.

2.Explain the Life cycle of Agaricus.

  • The symbiotic association between fungal myscelium and roots of plants is called as mycorrhizae
  • In this relationship fungi absorb nutrition from the root and in turn the hyphal network of mycorrhizae forming fungi helps the plant to absorb water and mineral nutrients from the soil
