Adaptation is the key to an organism’s survival. It is the only way that organisms can advance with the ever changing environment. According to Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection, the organisms that obtain inheritable traits which permit them to adapt better to their habitat are more likely to survive, reproduction and pass these traits to their offsprings. Thanks to dedicated biological researchers, veterinarians and well-advanced technology, we now have incredible new insights into the life of the polar bears.
Generally speaking, deer hunting season requires bundling up for cold weather, but what happens when unseasonably warm or even hot weather persists in the early to mid hunting season? Deer behavior will change and your best hunting times will differ. Mastering the art of hunting in warm weather conditions can help you avoid this annoyance. And if we are really going through some kind of global warming, you 'll be ready to adapt to it.
INTRODUCTION The majestic, healthy Canadian Lynx (Lynx canadensis) population still roams much of Canada and Alaska. But in 1973, the Lynx was put on the Endangered Species list for being hunted and poisoned in the United States. ( U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) The U.S. Fish and Wildlife has listed the Lynx as threatened in Colorado.
The label “Indian” refers to a variety of different cultures (over 2000), with hundreds of different languages and different ways of living. Indians had long, dark hair, almond shaped eyes and bronze or tan skin. After the realization that America was not a part of Asia a examination began over how people got there. Joseph de Acosta said “Old World animals were presents in the Americas” (Faragher pg 5), humans must have crossed a land bridge with them.
The wolverine is an awesome animal that is extremely deadly. It is awesome because they are fluffy, cute, and deadly. The wolverines scientific name is Gulo Gulo. Gulo is Latin for "glutton. Wolverines live in the Taiga biome,which is the sometimes swampy coniferous forest of high northern latitudes, especially that between the tundra and steppes of Siberia and North America.
There is nothing wrong with hunting for survival. Mankind has hunted animals large and small for hundreds of centuries. Hunting for sport should also be acceptable, with the appropriate rules, guidelines, and limitations. This past year the killing of a Cecil, a lion living in a protected reservation in Africa sparked a great deal of debate in regards to trophy hunting. The issue of the debate was whether it is morally justifiable to kill animals for sport.
A keystone species are an extremely important factor for keeping diversity in an ecosystem. When lost they can have detrimental effect on the ecosystem they are inhabiting. These include and diversity decrease and the ecosystem 's structure is significantly structured(Campbell). It has a strong control over the community due to its ecological role or niche(Reece). One of the main keystone species that is regenerating is the grey wolf or the Canis lupus.
To where have all the black-footed ferrets disappeared? The black-footed ferrets have been endangered since 1967 in the southwestern corner of North Dakota due to loss of habitat and a depletion of their prime food source. First of all, the prairie dogs and the other animals that lived in their homes were the ferrets prime source of food. Secondly, the ferrets, like many other animals, used the prairie dogs’ burrows as homes.
Eurasian Lynx Throughout my life I haven’t known anything about an animal called the lynx, I’ve seen pictures and a couple of videos but I really didn’t know anything about them. Many questions went unanswered, until this research paper. Questions like, what are their physical characteristics, what is their behavior like, what kind of environment do they live in and their life cycle.
Polar Bears are a species that is in decline. They are currently listed as a vulnerable species because of the decline of their population. Climate change is a driving causes in the decline of Polar Bears. According to a study published in Ecological Applications, “Polar bears prefer sea ice concentrations exceeding 50% in the shallow, productive waters over the continental shelf” (634). This sea ice is essential to the Polar Bears because it allows them to feed off of their prey.
