A wild mustang’s responses to abiotic and biotic factors can either be forced or an inclination. Their natural instinctive responses come out with mating, climate, competition, defense, food availability, and communication, while they are forced to respond to climate, and pollution. Wild mustang’s behaviors towards biotic factors have only somewhat changed over the years, as some biotic factors have not changed, while some have. Their behaviors towards abiotic factors have changed, because the factors have changed themselves. For example, their predators have stayed the same, but their food availability have changed because of the changing climate. Competition has also dramatically changed as they are an endangered species. The climate
Imagine this, the hard rocks underneath your feet. The wind blowing in your face, and hot lava streaming through the area. Lava rocks tumble down the bigger rocks with the sound of the lava popping, reminding you of the candy pop rocks. The steam flowing up like your boiling water and needing clean water badly. Keeping eyes out watching for predators, located in the mountains of Hawaii. Volcano Kilauea is the oldest volcano in the world and is 300,000 to 600,000 years old. It 's a big rock that is always surrounded by lava day and night. What if you lived here? How would you survive? The main impacts in this environment are animals, air quality, and humans.
Northern Bobwhite Quail (Colinus virginianus) are one of the most influential and important game animals in America. Their popularity has been the driving force behind conservation, research, and even local economic prosperity. The hunting associated with these birds has become a “southern tradition” since these hunts are typically social events. Currently the bobwhite quail is undergoing a long term population decline which has prompted even more conservation efforts and research. Bobwhite quail are extremely sensitive to habitat quality which has recently been used to promote conservation based land management practices. This not only benefits the bobwhite but other less sensitive animals found within its range. Conservation
In the same passage, it also says," Many become aggressive as they struggle to compete for their share." When birds become aggressive, that is not good for other birds or humans. All of the images of kind little birds playing peacefully will turn into a full out brawl between birds fighting for food that was provided by the people that say they love birds the most... This may make you think a little right? This may not seem like such a huge ordeal, but when the person feeding the birds does not feed them any longer, they will not know how to get food from the wild. Birds get fed by people all around the world and if they are not able to feed them for a little while, they will die. Let us think about it if you had been fed your whole life by your
Government regulates hunting to control certain animal populations by setting hunting seasons, creating limits, and monitoring hunting efforts and animal populations. “In that case, hunting is good for the environment because the hunting community ensures that wildlife populations of game species are sustainable from one generation to the next. This requires that a diversity of natural habitats be kept intact, unpolluted, and undisturbed. Hunters support all these efforts” ("Why is Hunting Good for the Environment?"). Hunting has a great impact on the food chain because it keeps each level in the food chain under control. “During the 1980s the deer population exploded and exceeded the refuge 's carrying capacity by ten fold. Without predators checking deer population, the entire Mason Neck ecosystem was distorted to the eagle 's peril. Starving deer consumed entire generations of young trees -- essentially destroying future bald eagle roosts. And the deer weren 't faring so well either. Only disease and starvation regulated their population” (“Hunters Play an Active Role in Protecting the Environment”). A deer hunting season was started and the deer and bald eagle
The American Bald Eagle was not uncommon to people around the world although not many had encountered a real and living one. It was because the image of the eagle was featured everywhere, especially to those related to the United States. The bald eagle was a metaphor for the United States in many occasions.

It could also be found on logos of various departments of the federal government, federal documents, letterheads, uniforms of soldiers and embassy and even on the one-dollar bill. Therefore, it was reasonable for people to think of the United States immediately when they saw an image of a bald eagle. It was in fact adopted as

One Shoebill stork from Wild Animal Park in San Diego showed that smaller birds are not always only a delicious meal for her, but may also be considered friends. One visitor was able to take a picture of the situation when a big stork took a duck with her large beak, raised her up and moved from the way. This giant bird just leaned the duck to the side and passed on. Do these birds really know how to make a difference between friends and enemies?

Female bald eagles are larger than their male counterparts, and they both have dark feathers and white heads. Juvenile bald eagles often have lighter colored feathers.

Bald eagles feed on animal carcasses during the harsh winters of Yellowstone. Bald eagles form life long bonds and lay two to three eggs a year that hatch in the spring. Yellowstone’s bald eagles stay in the park year round (Nat'l Park Service U.S Dept. of the
Tradeoffs are a frequent occurrence in Nature. They describe the compromise between two optimal but frequently incompatible traits for an organism. Andrea Pomeroy and her team applied this concept of tradeoffs to the western sandpipers, Calidris mauri, of British Columbia Canada, with the trade off of their ability to forage for food against the costs of potential predation.
Birds, something we see almost on a daily basis, one here and another one over there, but how many times in our lives will we be able to witness tens of thousands of birds flying over the sky. John James Audubon and Annie Dillard describes their own personal experiences with massive flocks of bird. Both author takes time to help the reader visualize the grandness and coordination of the birds. However with contrasting diction and syntax utilized by the authors, the two articles are able to have different effect on the audience after finished reading them.

Coaches Rees McKinney, Matt Sims, Brad Wildeman, and Travis Betz herded their 23 players into three suburbans, and after shooing mischievous junior Jordan Schippers out of their trunk, began their three hour trek to the camp.
