Purpose: The purpose of the experiment was to understand how strong a bessbug by using weights and observing the time the best bug takes to travel to a certain distance. Background Information: The horned Passalus; also known as the Bess Beetle, is widely known beetle that is easily recognized. The Bessbug is a shiny black insect with a hard shell. The bess beetle lives in damp rotten wood, which also serves as their source of food. Bess beetles can lift up to 100 times its weight.
Habitat Luna moths can be found in the deciduous forests and woodlands where there are plenty of walnut, hickory, persimmon and sweetgum to feed on. In some areas, populations have declined due to habitat destruction and use of bright lights during the night, the lights disturb the luna moths mating cycle. Reproduction The luna moths eggs incubate for 8–13 days before hatching. Female luna moths produce 100 – 300 eggs, and lay them 4-7 at a time on the undersides of leaves over several nights. The caterpillars feed and grow larger, then pupate in a thin, silken cocoon spun among leafs on the ground.
These young insects are smaller than adults and very difficult to see with the naked eye. If you do see them, you'll notice they are translucent and whitish-yellow in color. As nymphs grow, they progress through five stages known as instars. Each instar begins after molting and lasts five to eight days under ideal conditions. Nymphs require a blood meal before progressing to the next instar, however, so those that are unable to find a host will stay in their current stage until they either feed or die.
At week two the culture vial containing the smaller population, that began with eight flies, was taken and as many flies as possible were aspirated into a transfer vial which was then chilled for at least seven minutes. These flies were placed on sorting plate than randomly the first four females and first four male flies were taken as the parents for the next generation. The phenotype of the randomly selected "parent" flies were recorded in our data sheets. Once the flies were chilled and fully immobile they were transferred using weigh paper to the culture vial, again keeping the vial laying horizontally until they regained consciousness. This culture vial was then labelled with population size and group name.
1 preventer of lime disease. They constantly, and almost exclusively eat rodents, which carry lime disease harboring ticks.” (Smith). Rattlesnakes can protect the crops by eating the mouse, rattlesnake also can reduce the disease by eating rodent which carries the tick. Second, In the novel crooked letter crooked letter, Wallace put a cotton head into a mailbox. Also, he rises rattlesnakes as pets.
“Female pink-toed tarantulas can live up to nine years while male pink-toed tarantulas live only about three years” (Osmond, Penney “London’s 200’s Web of Life”). The female pink-toed tarantulas live longer because male tarantulas usually die after mating. That could be a bad thing due to there will be less male pink-toed tarantulas. Also, most female spiders are larger than male spiders (London’s 200’s Web of Life). Female spiders live longer and are stronger, which makes the male tarantulas look weak.
Tobacco Hornworms consume large amounts of leave tissue. Multiple larvae can completely destroy a tobacco plant, leaving only the stems behind. Early generations of larvae are the most harmful to the tobacco crops. Physiology: The Tobacco Hornworm is typically about four inches long. It is green, with seven white stripes.
There seems to be a jellyfish invasion. Jellyfish travel in swarms. They can release up to 40,000 eggs daily. As they multiply and their numbers get out of control, they are called blooms. Jellyfish eat the larvae and eggs of the anchovies, it affects the fisherman who catch and sell the anchovies because they depend on a successful season of anchovie fishing, there is a jellyfish called the Bereo which eats the Mnemiopsis jellyfish and creates a more blanced ecosystem.
In the children’s young age, they believed silver was the only way to kill a monster. Since they all deeply believed it, when they used a slingshot to shoot a chunk of silver at it, it severely damaged IT. They believed that IT was dead, but when it rose from its slumber almost three decades later, they teamed up to defeat IT again. This time, IT’s true form is exposed as a pregnant female spider. IT reveals to the main characters that this is the closest form that humans can comprehend.
Synchronicity In Chaos A study of how a population of fireflies with different frequencies synchronise their frequencies over time Ananya Kaushik BSc. Mathematics 3rd Year SNU ID- AAA0625 Introduction I have picked the topic synchronization in chaos, more specifically I am a studying synchronicity in fireflies. A phenomenon observed by Mirollo and Strogatz in their paper ‘Synchronization of Pulse- Coupled Biological Oscillators’ is that when we see a swarm of fireflies, which start out with different frequencies of blinking, after a period of time, their frequencies get synchronized, ie, they all start blinking or glowing together. In Strogatz paper, he has discussed various applications of this
