Phosphorus metabolism : The endomycorrhizal symbiosis is beneficial for both fungi and plant. Fungi provide phosphorus to the plant while plant as a result give carbon to the fungi. But the phosphorus metabolism is the most important part of this association. Phosphorus is first absorbed by fungi from the soil and is stored in its cytoplasm while later fungi transport it to its vacuoles.
Bacterium growth on various agar plates Introduction The purpose of this experiment is to show different agar plates inhibit or enable growth of different organisms. Some varieties of media enable the grow of a wide range of organisms such as nutrient agar. Other media are selective which means they contain specific nutrients to encourage the growth of certain organisms. This means other organisms will die due to the selective nutrients such as high concentration of salt which will cause plasmolysis.
Fusarium spp. : A large number of Fusarium spp. are present in soil, often occupying a saprophytic role from where susceptible host tissue may be attacked. Fusarium avenaceum, F. culmorum, F. oxysporum and F.solani are the more important species involved in diseases of seedlings and cuttings. These species are generally not host specific at the seedling stage and have a wide host range. Fusarium attack can result in seedling death.
If the plant has too much fertilizer, the total growth will decrease because the soil will become too acidic. Fertilizer misuse is very common by uneducated farmers, which adds to the algae problem. Fertilizer’s benefits clearly outweigh the disadvantages, however, to maintain a healthy environment, farmers should use the minimum amount that they can get away with. This experiment will show which ratio will be the best. It also shows how bad algae will get if farmers overuse fertilizer or misuse it.
This again stops the bees from doing their job of pollinating and stops them from getting the food they need to survive. The community can help bees survive by employing a few tactics. One tactic alone will not cure the bee population degradation but it can help boost the bee population. One local and more personal tactic would be to have a “bee garden” that consists of flowering plants that bees like which include apples, oranges, lemons, limes, cucumbers, carrots, and cantaloupes. Another tactic would be do be more environmentally conscious.
First of all, Pollan states just because it says it's organic doesn't mean it really is. If you buy an “organic” salad at your local grocery store, farmers will still use pesticides to keep bugs away and other animals. The chemicals they use are all natural, but it's not truly organic if you use pesticides or other chemicals. In The Omnivore’s Dilemma Pollan says, “Instead of toxic pesticides, crops are sprayed with natural substances, like BT, a pesticide made from a common soil bacteria” (140.) This quote proves that big organic industrial companies use pesticides to help produce grow.
subtilis is found mainly in plant and soil rich environments, it seems interesting that our B. subtilis sample was collected from the air in the microbiology laboratory. B. subtilis does produce spores, however in order for them to be present in the surrounding air and environment, you have to be in an environment that contains a substantial amount of plants in which the laboratory is not. However, before the unknown was collected, we were preparing our Winogradsky columns. The Winogradsky columns contained mud that was collected from an area of moistened soil on campus.
The plant has the ability to make pesticides and resist some herbicides. These characteristics are helpful in the production of food, allowing farmers to use fewer chemicals and to grow fewer crops with the ideal conditions to also prevent eutrophication. Pesticides can have unintentional effects on targeted species even though pesticides protect crops against unwanted insects. GMOs could harm human health as well.
Some of the alternate mechanisms suggested are production of chelating compounds, inorganic acids like sulphuric, nitric and carbonic acids. Another attractive application of P-dissolving enzymes is the mineralization of soil organic P compounds through phytate degradation mediated by the enzyme phytase, which specifically causes release of P from phytic acid. Phytate is a major component of organic P in soil. There are several reports of phytase producing organism. Richardson AE (1997) reported insoluble P solubolization by secreting phytase enzyme in Pseudomonas sp.
The purpose of genetically modifying crops is to basically produce crops that are THE PROCESS OF GENTETIC MODIFICATION Below is a picture that shows the process of Genetic Modification: source;http://sphew.bumc.bu.rdu/otlt/MPH-Modules/PH/GMOs/GMOs_print.html GENETICALLY MODIFIED CROPS AFFECT THE PEOPLES HEALTH, THE ENVIRONMENT AND ALSO THE ECONOMY.

There will be nomore left on the planet. They all will disappear. This is a extreme conflict that scientist and the world is trying to avoid. The third reason i think Gmos are harmful because it can cause enviromental risks. This could also bother our health too because we eat lots of veggies out of the field.
“You want me to build what?” “A Rube Goldberg machine. It’s pretty simple…” A Rube Goldberg machine, by definition, is not simple—especially when you are recruited to build one a week before the first Science Olympiad competition. Two rolls of duct tape, a bag of hot glue sticks, and fourteen consecutive hours of Yo-Yo Ma resulted in a lopsided contraption that managed to win a fourth place medal.
