In addition, it was very interesting to learn about the original purpose of apples during the 1800s. I have learned about the importance of apple cider during the time and how apple cider is a huge part of frontier life since the water source could be full of dangerous bacteria. Surprisingly, apple cider took the place of not only wine and beer but of coffee and tea, juice, and even water in the rural parts. Lastly, I would like to give thanks to Johnny Chapman for the varieties of apples like the delicious, the golden delicious, and more. Thanks to Johnny Chapman, I was able to enjoy the delightful American apple pie and possibly with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on the
Through concise analysis of research papers and other experiments conducted elsewhere, the final conclusion of this lab was supported. All in all, the inquiry experiment allowed the accomplishment of the goal of identifying one of the main reasons why fruit flies eat rotten fruit. Introduction: Drosophila (a model research organism) melanogaster (black abdomen) is the common fruitfly. The lab required the usage of fruit flies as they are a commonly used organism in many experiments. The portion before the inquiry lab utilized the usage of different foods to determine exactly which food the flies would experience more of an attraction towards.
The α-chitins were isolated from the exoskeletons of crabs, lobsters and shrimps, endoskeletons of mollusks, β- chitin from squids, and γ-chitin also found in cell wall of fungi and algae (Peniche, Arguelles-Monal, & Goycoolea, 2008; Kumar, 2000; Kurita, 2006). However, the fungal cell wall chitin is associated with other polysaccharides such as cellulose, glucan, mannan and polygalactosamine, when this isolation is difficult (Peniche, Arguelles-Monal, & Goycoolea, 2008). But crabs, lobsters, shrimps, mollusks and squids chitin is associated with
This could have occurred from miscounting or not accurately counting the number of seeds germinated. If the experiment was completed again, more higher concentrations could be applied to the seeds to see if the data is further supported. Either way the more trials the better and more accurate results, this applies to any experiment. Practical applications of the principles of this investigation may be using the correct concentration for a specific plant or seed. This lab shows that it is necessary to follow the directions and specifications when using the fertilizer miracle
I am providing culinary history for the following DISH: Mole Moles are the great sauces of Mexico, richly spiced and undeniably refined. They are complex and can be comprised of some 15 to 30 ingredients. To make mole you would need “need spices like cloves, oregano, cumin and bay leaves; nuts and seeds like almonds, pumpkin seeds and walnuts; lard; sugar or chocolate; dried chili peppers like chile ancho, mulato, poblano and chipotle; and dried or fresh fruits and vegetables like bananas, pineapple, celery and squash.” The list can go on and on depending on the type of mole you are making. Mole is famously known for the usage of chocolate, and then combining it with turkey or chicken. Unlike popular belief chocolate is not always used to
But are non-native species always harmful? In the northeastern USA, the dominant earthworms arose from non-native species in the nineteenth century; they have enriched the soil. Other non-natives with positive benefits include honeybees, plants that feed butterflies, and non-native fruit trees that feed birds. And there can be plus-minus effects. Even the infamous zebra mussel has clarified water and increased fish populations of some
Rock Candy History [Abstract]. Wilde’s WWW, 387-420) The popular flavors of rock candy sticks today are: cotton candy, cherry, watermelon, strawberry, grape, and blue raspberry.

The first rock candy colors were either red or blue.
introduction According to the oxford dictionary the definition of Slime mold is a simple organism of an acellular mass of creeping jelly like protoplasm containing nuclei or mass of amoeboid cells. When it reaches a certain size it forms a large number of spore cases and was formally considered in the kingdom of fungi, however it is now classified in the Protista kingdom because, like other protists, they really don 't fit in with other kingdoms. They are motile like animals but some are unicellular so they cannot be classified as animals. There are several types of Slime Molds. Plasmodial slime molds (such as Physarum polycephalum) are slime molds that form giant, multinucleated cell colonies.
Some of the harvests that rely on bees include nuts, soya beans, onions, carrots, broccoli and sunflowers to apples, oranges, blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, melons, avocados, peaches. Including cotton, the entire industry of pollination brings in about $60 billion a year, an average $15 billion of which in the United States alone. (Benjamin and McCallum, 4) An industry this crucial, that which is a foundation for several other industries to thrive, should be maintained and studied to prevent a snowball effect of the decay of industries. Unfortunately, the honeybee industry has been dying at an alarming rate.
Citrus canker disease is characterized by using symptoms such as water-soaked eruptions, circular and pustule-like lesions which will appear on all plant tissues (Brunings and Gabriel 2003). It seems that the lesions are resulted from changes in cell enlargement (hypertrophy) and cell division (hyperplasia) (Schubert et al. 2001; Brunings and Gabriel 2003; Lin et al. 2009). In spite of the lesions, Xanthomonas fuscans subsp.
