The Saimiri Sciureus also known as the Common Squirrel Monkey, lives in tropical jungles and forests of Central and South America. They prefer to live in dense tropical regions that are close to bodies of water such as streams or rivers. They primarily live in the middle of the tree canopies so they will not get eaten by predators. However, in some areas they have been known to forage on the ground for food.
The theory of evolution has been discussed, evaluated, and researched many times since the theory was first brought to light. Darwin’s theory of evolution is said to be divided into two parts, common decent and natural selection (Bouzat, 2014). Many research papers agreeing with Darwin’s theory comment on the diversity of a species and how they have descended from one common ancestor. Natural selection is a process in which species that are better adapted to the environment tend to survive and reproduce (Dictonary.com). Natural selection is seen in the finches that Darwin studied on the Galapagos Islands. Environment and food supply changes caused the finches beaks to adapt in a unique way. Studies on Darwin’s finches show us that natural selection in a natural environment is interpretable, observable, and repeatable (Grant, 2003). Natural selection is representable in different types of birds such as the Island Scrub-jay. A study published in 2015 on these Island Scrub-Jays (Aphelocoma insularis) demonstrates examples of natural selection. The Cambrian explosion argues against Darwin’s theory of natural selection. It
Leopard Gecko 's get their name from the popular look of spots that resemble leopards they tend. Yet, leopard gecko 's can have many different ways of looking. They can range from a soft lavender color to as bright as an orange. Leopard geckos are very different from most of the rest of the lizard reptile community. Leopard geckos have eyelids that can actually blink and in general they are very sweet natured creatures. Leopard geckos can live up to 20 years in captivity and are a very common reptile pet.
The primate observation that I chose to observe are Orangutan, Squirrel Monkey, and Lemur. This observation took place in the Lowry Park Zoo on October 18th. I went to the Lowry Park Zoo around 2 pm until 5 pm. The purpose of this observation is through primate’s anatomy, locomotion, and behavior to getting know them better, and how they are differences and similarities compare to human beings. When I got there, the Zoo was already very crowd. There were lots of people in the zoo; I think probably was on Sunday. I am afraid that I don’t have enough time to observation all three of primate species, so I straight went to the sites. I noticed that the habitats of these primates are very similar. They all live in very large and sparse environments
Sordaria fimicola is a microscopic fungal species that produces ordered tetrads. It is commonly used in classrooms because it lacks conidiospores, has a short generation time with matching genotype and phenotype, has known color genes that permit tetrad analysis, easily observable crossing over effects, and does not undergo spindle overlap. In S. fimicola, meiosis occurs in the ascus. The fungus is a haploid organism for the majority of its life. It only becomes diploid when mycelia of two unlike strains fuse. Mycelia are a network of long hyphae filaments which the fungus uses to form sex organs. The newly formed, diploid nucleus must go through mitosis to become haploid again. This will produce eight haploid ascospores held in the ascus.
The House Mouse is an invasive mammal that has a multitude of habitats within Florida. The scientific name is Mus musculus. The House Mouse is established statewide. Habitats usually surround populated areas. The search for food makes family homes and stores a common place for the House Mouse to live. Large abandoned areas are also popular habitats, such as old barns, fields, and pastures. The distribution of the House Mouse is statewide. The House Mouse is an invasive species that is currently treated as a pest. The House Mouse is not native to Florida and can become an issue in developed areas. Rodents tend to carry disease and are a threat to people and animals. Pesticides and traps are currently being used by exterminators. House Mice
In terms of evolutionary genetics, the two Western Flycatcher populations are two species. If the genetic aspects of the two populations show significant differences, then it is reasonable to make inference about their divergence. Johnson and Marten (1988) illustrated the differentiation of allopatric populations by examining 41 genetic loci in 11 breeding populations through electrophoresis. By examining the allelic frequency in coastal and interior populations, some alleles appearing in one population with high frequencies do not exist or have low
They are also known for catching invertebrates and small vertebrates with their quick hand grasps (Gray mouse lemur Wikipedia).. According to Animal Diversity Website, the lifespan of a male is 14 years and a female is 15 years. In addition, the females sleep in groups of up to 15 and they are also dominant over males. The main key behaviors of the grey mouse lemur are the following: arboreal, nocturnal, motile, social, sedentary, dominance hierarchies, and scansorial (Animal Adversity
Their hair is grayish brown but, at times they look grey-green in color because they move so slowly that tiny
Snowshoe hares beware! The Canadian lynx is watching you from behind the brambles! With its brown coat and ruffled fur, the Canadian lynx is a predator to all small critters everywhere!
I have researched naked mole rats’.The naked mole rat can be found in Africa. They are related to pocket gophers. They have pink skin. They have big beaver teeth.
If you hear gnawing or scuttling in your walls at night, you might have a mouse problem. You may also notice a foul odor, see greasy trails, or find rodent droppings around your home. Mice may be cute little animals, but they have no place running loose in your house. They are very destructive, smelly, and they can spread diseases. Therefore you want to take action even if you think your problem with mice is a minor one, or it could turn into a bigger problem given time. Here are some things you can try.
The Heterocephalus glaber, more commonly known as the Naked Mole-rat, is a burrowing mammal with unique features suited to an underground environment. Naked Mole-rats are the only mammalian thermoconformer, which means they don’t have the ability to thermally regulate their own body temperature. The naked-mole rat is neither a mole, nor a rat, but is a rodent closely related to Guinea pigs. Their tubular shaped bodies are perfect for living in a burrow because their small limbs allow them to run as fast backwards as they can forwards. Their features include tiny eyes that can only identify light and dark, very small ears and large teeth perfect for digging. Their pink and
Variation is a difference of characteristics such as structure, form, function, colour and size when compared to others of the same species within a specific environment. Variation can occur through mutation, the recombination between chromosomes and migration, of which usually happens due to environmental or genetic factors. Variation permits the survival of species in a changing environment and ensures protection from exposure to diseases or environmental disasters. Those who possess variation in species ensures that when their environment changes the individuals will have the variation that will allow them to survive while those who do not possess the variation will die out. This is natural selection and goes hand in hand alongside variation.
The evolutionism-reationism debate has been going on for centuries among christians and scientists. However, creationism is said to have more logical proof of their points being the strongest.
