I had a mind blank on this question as well! EEK!

Ended up puting down - Tapeworm may cause an imbalance in an individuals microflora hence causing a candidas infection... Would they accept that answer?

i put ringworm as well but i knew it was a fungus. i just put it there for the sake of putting something down.

didnt we only learn what a macroparisite is ? not what type of diseases it causes

For the macroparasite question I put paralysis caused by Australian Paralysis tick. Do you reckon that'd be a good enough disease?

yeh for that macro parasite question im pretty sure we just learnt about what they were and examples of em....not really wat they caused.... i had a punt and said liver flukes in humans lead to liver schlerosis or jaundice - but i thort those were symptoms rather then diseases

It's not caused by it as such. It's a vector which caries the protozoan plasmodium which causes Malaria. At least that's what I think.

Yeah we did human story, it was so easy but then again bio has been the easiest out of all my exams ( i know what u mean about chem)

with the culture question how much did u write?
Umm..i wRote 3-4 pages for the cultural devlop. question, but only covered the types of development and changes (communication, tools blah blah) instead of things like habitat destruction, biodiversity....I was a bit disappointed coz that was one part of human story that i thought wouldn't come up..i studied for it but not in detail....but otherwise human sory was good.

How did you go with that question?

No kidney plus no punnett square questions =) Not much on xylem and phloem either, thank goodness.

Well, gee, I just realised I screwed up that macroparasite question. No matter. Only one mark =)

I hope I get a good mark. Cause I didn't study for the trials and screwed it up a bit.

is this the questio ntaht goes" most pathogens must be transmitted or something to trigger the immune response"? relate this statement to an infectious disease?

if so, i said that the malaria was caused by the plasmodium protozoa which was transmitted by the female anopheles so not really caused by it, however it was also spread by direct and indirect contact?

.......and for the person who asked about xylem mc : xylem transports water and Na ions. i hope i got in the 80-90's

id say you would get a mark for having the correct column, the missing bases, T G and C but not the other mark because the percentages arent right.

who said tapeworm caused candiasis?
