Order Description:

Read each question, then, using a #2 pencil, fill in the appropriate spot on the scantron form. There are normally 22 bones in the human skull (not counting wormian bones.) True False Over half of the bones in the human body are in the hands and feet. True False The main means to determine age in a young person’s (up to early 20’s at time of death) skeleton are to examine the…. Ischium and ilium Skull and pelvis Teeth and hands Skull and sternum Epiphyseal fusion and dental eruption Each side of the pelvis (not counting the sacrum and coccyx) is made up of 3 bones that fuse together after birth. True False After the age of 25 it gets more difficult to determine the person’s age at death from skeletal remains. True False The sex of an individual skeleton is easier to determine if they were prepubescent at the time of death. True False The male pelvis is wider than the female pelvis due to heavier musculature. True False Both toe and finger bones are referred to as phalanges. True False On a skeleton, the best parts for determining the sex of the individual are the…. Ischium and ilium Skull and pelvis Teeth and hands Skull and sternum Epiphyseal fusion and dental eruption Forensic Anthropologists can determine the race of a skeleton with an accuracy of around 80% True. False An adult human normally has _____________ bones. 306 106 206 530 150 The foramen magnum directly under the skull is a way to determine _____________ from a fossil specimen. whether it's a primate brachiation bipedalism ischial callosities whether the skull was male or female Two of the most important characteristics which identify a mammal as a primate are? A rhinarium and binocular vision Short canine teeth and nails on the fingers and toes Bipedalism and dental combs Grasping hands and binocular vision Bipedalism and binocular vision When compared with other mammals, primates are usually very specialized in their adaptations. True False Lemurs are….. monkeys primates only found on the island of Madagascar in the same Family as raccoons b AND c, above, only The woman most famous for her long term study of chimpanzees in the wild is? Mary Leakey Birute Galdikas Jane Goodall Dian Fossey Maeve Leakey New World monkeys…. Are almost entirely arboreal Some have the only prehensile tails among the primates Show some of the most primitive traits of any of the monkeys Can be classified as platyrrhines all of the above The Bonobo, sometimes called the Pygmy Chimpanzee, is one of the lesser apes. True False The Family name Hylobatidae refers to which of the following groups of primates? a. Macaques and baboons Tarsiers Chimps and Bonobos Gibbons and Siamangs Orang utans Baboons and macaques belong to the Family called Pongidae. True False This woman has spent much of her life studying and working with wild Orang utans. a. Mary Leakey Birute Galdikas Jane Goodall Dian Fossey Maeve Leakey Apes and humans have the same dental formula of 2-1-2-3. True False Which of the following types of primate has dental combs? New world monkeys Old world monkeys Orangs Lemurs Gibbons This woman worked with and studied mountain gorillas, and was the victim of a brutal, and as yet, unsolved murder. Mary Leakey Birute Galdikas Jane Goodall Dian Fossey Maeve Leakey Biostratigraphy is a chronometric dating technique True False The half life for the radioactive potassium isotope (as used in potassium/argon dating) is approximately 1.33 billion years. True False The most accurate dating method, within its limitations, is… Potassium/Argon Biostratigraphy Fission track dating Fluorine analysis Dendrochronology Potassium/Argon (K/Ar) dating can only be used on which of the following types of rock? Sedimentary Metamorphic Volcanic (Igneous) Rare gems a and b above Which of the following was one of the techniques used to test the age of the earth and moon. Potassium/Argon Biostratigraphy Fission track dating Fluorine analysis Dendrochronology Carbon dating was improved with ….. atmospheric information from the ice cores from Greenland comparison and calibration with dendrochronology dates using lasers to test much smaller samples all of the above a, above, only Carbon 14 dating is based on the half life of a radioactive isotope of Carbon, and that half life is approximately… 7000 years 1.33 billion years 5730 years 1628 years 10200 years Seriation is used primarily by Archaeologists. True False The following dating technique was used on the ‘Piltdown Man’s’ bones, and showed that the skull and jaw did NOT belong together, and was the beginning of unravelling the hoax.
