Lab 3 – Biodiversity Demonstration 1: Interdependence of Species Table 1: Interdependence of Species Results Round Species Missing (Bead Color and Name) 1 Color Yellow – Name Bees 2 Color Blue - Name Humans 3 Color Red – Name Flowers 4 Color White - Name Lichen POST LAB QUESTIONS 1. Explain how the ecosystem was affected by the missing species for each round of the demonstration. a. Round 1 = Trees and plants could not be pollinated without bees. Humans would no longer have honey and foods that require pollination such as fruits would cease to exists.
Key words: foraging habits, competition, gray squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis), caching, distance, shelled peanuts, and unshelled peanuts. Introduction Caching animals display different feeding characteristics depending on the food type, distance involved, the presence of competition, and existence of different forms of distractions (Jessen, 2013). This discussion focused on studying the foraging behavior of gray squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis) when exposed to shelled and unshelled peanuts. We studied this topic because we wanted to learn how human presence influenced the foraging habits of gray squirrels (Nilon & Parker, 2008). Additionally, the intention of this submission is to explain how food characteristics influence
Spencer Ferguson SOC 100/02 25th September 2011 Reflection on Lucy the Chimp: Progress in Research or Inhumane? When listening to this story, I was so intrigued, almost entranced in what this account had to tell society. It is truly mind-boggling to think that a closely related species, but a different species nonetheless is taught to eat like a human, act like a human, and truly think it is actually a human. It makes you wonder what else we could do with research, but you also wonder, is that natural? That is the battle I’m going through now over this story.
The rhesus monkey experiment "nature of love" (1958), undertaken by Harry F. Harlow bolstered our understanding of the emotional bond between a baby and its mother. Harlow was able to distinguish between emotional attachment and the biological desire for food. Harlow had left behind an extraordinary legacy relating to the ethical implications which lead to deprived love at a young age, Hock (2013) depicts the inhumane treatment towards the infants needs and how the research that Harlow had produced could not be done on humans as it would harm their psychological and physical state, as it had already done to the infant monkeys. The experimental research deprived the infants of their original mother by replacing them with a cloth, although he only did these with the infant monkeys due to the ethical principles. Harlow had found that the infant monkeys as young as a day old, became very attached to the cloth pads used in the experiment, most for comfort and security.
In the children’s movie “A Bug’s Life”, which began playing in 1998, a few sociological concepts are displayed within the colony of ants. A few of these concepts include their organized society and strict cultures. A society is the variety of people that are defined by their behaviors and beliefs known as their culture. Although this is a very well-known children’s movie that has been viewed by many, people rarely notice the differences in the different cultures and societies throughout the movie. A few of the differences include the society that the ants live in versus the society of the other bugs, the specific behaviors that make up the ant's culture, and the beneficial differences that can be made to the ants overall society and culture when they are open to the idea of change.
A kinses behavior is their activity rate. Sowbugs when given different variables will show taxis and kinses towards then and that was the true purpose to this lab. When tested in their behavior chambers the sowbugs will choose the variables most like there natural environment. Scientific Drawing: See attached. Answers to Questions (1-9) 1) They sense with their antennas 2) Yes 3) Yes 4) 2 5) 14 legs 6) Some crawl on top of others, but does not matter in size 7) Gills 8) They molt their exoskeletons.
That is actually an exploitation of animals’ lives, especially mice. When a new vaccines or antibodies would like to be test, mice will need. How many lives do we take away from them for investigation? How many is enough to prove the vaccines or antibodies are actually working effectively? How many tests will be needed?
It shows how the ‘rabbits’ invade the ‘possums’ land. In the beginning the rabbits showed kindness to the possums by giving them food, trading with them and caring for them. But in the end it showed that’s the rabbits were only really distracting them from what they were actually doing. They were building
She is trying to give the idea of the bird doing another human activity. This is also another representation of humans becoming more sophisticated and moving away from nature, we no longer drink from the leaves and grass but from actual glasses. Dickinson shows the bird doing another human activity in this stanza. “And then hopped sideways to the Wall/ To let a Beetle pass” (lines 7&8) The bird is moving out of its way to let a beetle go by, but you would normally think that the bird would not even notice a beetle unless it was hungry. This also gives the bird a human trait, politeness.
Society and surroundings shape up each person, to make them able to grow according to what they have so that they can survive. Saying this, I agree completely that environment affects to some point physiological processes and genetics affects it to another. First of all, Rosenzweig research has proven that environment plays a very important role in brain development. A group of rats was placed for some time in an enriched environment, where there were many toys that were changed every day. Another group of rats was placed alone in an impoverished environment, where it was just the needed food and water and no toys or any stimulus.
