Red Cherry Shrimp From the freshwaters of Taiwan, we get the Neocaridina davidi more commonly known as the red cherry shrimp or cherry red shrimp. Naturally these little wonders are green-brown in color, however, due to years of selective breeding it gave rise to the red morph of this species. The males have a lighter texture and less red coloration than the females. During pregnancy the female shrimp achieves that pregnancy glow intensifying the red hue already present and with that getting larger. It’s the pregnancy weight.
duck calls In 1972, Phil Robertson created his famous Duck Commander Call, and started his Duck Commander Company in 1973. His product and name have become increasingly famous since his son, Willie Robertson, turned the company from a family business into a multimillion-dollar empire. A duck call may be either the sound-imitation process by which a hunter lures waterfowl, or the actual tool which the person uses to do so. Early duck call tools were basic woodwind instruments, while later innovations are constructed of rubber and plastic, and allow the hunter to adjust the volume and tone of the calls with reeds. Today's duck calls usually fall into three main categories: a single, double, or triple reed call with many variations.
Eggs are attached to vegetation or may lie idle at the bottom of a pond and may deposit in masses of 300 to 800 eggs. Within a week tadpoles will start to emerge and tadpoles may develop for one year, transforming upon reaching a size of around 2-3 inches. Sources: Conant, R and J.T. Collins. 1998.
This impacts our well being because, according to the website: The Mekong River- Survival for Millions, the water from rivers are the source of most of our drinking water. Eutrophication causes an abundance of bacteria to form in the river. If there is too much bacteria in the water, it will cause sicknesses and negatively impacts our health. However, if there is too much manure in the water, it will contaminate the water and negatively affect our health as well. This is why we should use animal manure in moderation.
Khan and Abide Ali Ansari as its explains how eutrophication can impact plant growth as well as “The Green Kingdom; Encyclopaedia by Child craft page 57relates to our experiment as this page explains exactly how duckweed growths and the certain conditions it grows in. [ Khan. A; Ansari. A.A.; Eutrophication: An Ecological Vision, The Botanical Review, December 2005 , Volume 71, Issue 4] [The Green Kingdom ; Encyclopaedia by Child craft Page 57] Further more articles such as “How To Grow Duckweed” by Jenny Harrington and “The Charms of Growing Duckweed by John W. Cross were also relevant to our experiment as they both state what fertilizers can be used when growing duckweed and in what different conditions duckweed can be grown in. [Harrington, J.
This results in the change of an ecosystem, which causes corals to have harmful effects, and even end up bleaching. When fishing companies have taken almost all of the fish, now they must move to a different part of land, which can also be beneficial for the fishermen or company. Tourism companies employ thousands of people to work near coral reefs, a very hot location of vacationers. While ecotourism effects corals, the only effect on corals dying out on hot locations would also be tourism companies and workers losing jobs. Without fishing or tourism jobs, our economy could face threats because of the millions of people who rely on corals throughout their livelihood, now losing their work.
There are often large numbers of neem seedlings regenerating under mature neem trees and can live for up to 200 years. Nurseries propagate neem from seeds and tip-cuttings. Specimens can also be grown from root suckers (NRC, 1992). Neem can tolerate high summer temperatures (up to 50 ˚C) but does not tolerate frost or temperatures below 4 ˚C (leaf fall and death may result). Neem grows best in areas where annual rainfall is 450–1,200 mm (with optimum growth where annual rainfall is around 1100 mm), but can tolerate annual rainfall as low as 150 mm if its roots can access ground water within 9–12 m of the ground surface and once established, it is very drought tolerant and can survive 7–8 month dry seasons (Stoney,
Since algae consume dissolved oxygen in water, this can cause depletion of dissolved oxygen that very crucial to fish and other aquatic creatures to survive. Algal blooms is condition where algae grow progressively and this condition cause decreasing in dissolved oxygen in water and also can affect the health of water system included living organism like fish. Depletion of dissolved oxygen can cause extinction of fish population in that system. Some algae can disrupt human health because of their capabilities of elevated toxins and production of parasites that can disrupt human immune system. Human can be affected if they come in contact with polluted water, eat tainted fish or shellfish, or drink that polluted water.
In 2009, seaweed farming in Bali experienced the outbreak of ice-ice disease every single planting cycle. Due to the outbreak of ice-ice, seaweed production decreased from 500 tons in 2008 to 200 tons in 2009. More recently, the effect of sea surface temperature rise and el Niño in Indonesia continue, with outbreak of ice-ice disease spreading to many seaweed farming in Maluku, Nusa Tenggara and Sulawesi. This has prompted conclusions that rising sea surface temperatures result in toxic algae and at same time trigger ice-ice
Therefore, the overfishing crisis is illegal, unregulated, and unreported fishing. The illegal fishing occurs across all types of fisheries, within national and international waters, and small scales to large industrialized operations. The impact of overfishing can bring the economic loss, marine life imbalance, and decreased food security. In term of economic loss, fishing is integral to economies around the world. Hence, overfishing threatens coastal nations down to the local level, devastating communities whose dominant sources of labor and revenue hinges on healthy, plentiful stocks of fish.
