Humankind has been familiar to zombie apocalypse scenarios for decades and probably centuries, but has neglected the actual possibility of one happening. In our surroundings, however, creatures are turned into will-less victims by extraordinary parasites and fungi. These take over their hosts’ bodies, and get them to commit actions unlikely for the species affected and use them as servants. Is it possible for these parasites and fungi to evolve and start affecting humans? One of the parasites responsible for action controlling a certain type of snails is the flatworm Leucochloridium Paradoxum.
Earthworm and Bullfrog comparison 1/14/2018 Dissecting the Animal Kingdom pd 7 pg1 The organisms i will be comparing are the Earthworm and the Bullfrog, the Earthworm is part of the phylum Annelid and the Bullfrog is part of the Phylum Chordate. The earthworm is a invertebrate and the Bullfrog is a vertebrate. This means that the Earthworm does not have a skeletal structure in its body but a bullfrog does. A key characteristic of both the animals is that they have bilateral symmetry. This means that that you could basically split both of the animals in half and both sides would be the same because they are bilaterally symmetrical, both halves of the body are identical.
Moths, cockroaches, fungi, algae, and beetles can all live on a single sloth. Sloths are folivores and have had their digestive system adapt to their eating habits. Leaves are their main food sources and aren’t rich in nutrients; therefore, sloths have large and specialized slow stomachs that have multiple compartments. These compartments contain symbiotic acid which can break down the tough leaves. Sloths have some pretty impressively long tongues.
Some species of the frog will bury themselves in the ground, and go through metamorphosis underground, until they turn into adults. Other species go through metamorphosis in the water. South America has many mysteries, and will always have many mysteries. The glass frog will be one of them for a while. Its appearance is part of the mystery, and it mates and lays eggs like any other frog.
types of fossils There are four types of fossils: Mold fossils- this is an impression that is made within the substrate, usually a negative image of the organism. Cast fossils are the opposite to mold fossils because they are molds that have been filled in. Trace fossils or ichnofossils are things such as footprints or nests that have been fossilized. Last but not least true form fossils are fossils of the actual animal or a part of the animal. How they can form Fossils are formed in a number of ways that organisms can turn into fossils: Freezing, as the name suggests this is when an organism is frozen and kept at sub zero temperature for prolonged time.
Miraculous Uses of Ice Man Fungus (Fomes fomentarius) Fomes fomentarius is commonly known as Ice Man Fungus, hoof fungus, tinder fungus, tinder polypore and tinder conk. It is a mushroom made up of polypore fruit bodies, which together form a shape that resemble a horse hoof. This mushroom can be of various colors, which range from silvery-gray to black. However, it is most commonly found as brown. Unless it is picked, this mushroom doesn’t fall off the tree that it grows on.
The plants no longer have yellow flowers and now have lots of large edible leaves. 3.They belong to the Phylum Cnidaria. 4.Stomata allows carbon dioxide, water vapor and oxygen in and out of the cell efficiently 5.Snakes are most likely related to Jucaraseps. The structure lends evidence to this association is the common structures, or otherwise known as structural similarities. 6.The function of Endospores are
Lice was would itch the soldier. Lice was also passed down from soldier to soldier during the Trench Warfare. Not only was lice easily transferred from one to another. When soldiers cleaned their clothes to remove lice, it actually made lice eggs hatch rather than removing lice. The only way to remove lice was a delousing machine but instead lice were hidden.
The Nile Perch: Friend or Foe for Lake Victoria INTRODUCTION: An alien species is a species introduced outside its normal distribution. It is clear that alien species can be both beneficial, for example the honey bee, pollinating many of the countries important crops and fruit. However it is more frequently seen that alien species have a negative effect on the habitat. The alien species under discussion in this essay is the Nile Perch. The Nile Perch is seen throughout much of the Afrotropic ecozone, as well as being native to the Nile, Senegal, Congo, Volta, Niger, Lake Turkana, and Lake Chad.
Even though differences in their interpretations can be found, their main role remains the same – survival on human flesh and/or brain, as well as terrorizing the human race. The word „zombie“ was not used in the TV series. Instead, the characters create their own names and categorizations for them, with the term “Walkers” being frequently used. As stated in the previous chapter, everyone is infected by the disease, which means they carry a virus which turns them
Like animals, humans and most bacteria, all fungi are heterotrophs. This means that they get their energy by eating organic substances. In contrast, plants get their energy directly from light and for this reason plants are called autotrophs. Although fungi have much more in common with animals than plants, mycology is often seen as a branch of botany Around 250 million years ago, the earth was populated by ancient plants and animals. The Permian extinction changed all that.
Pill bugs and sow bugs are similar names that been give for land isopod. They are crustaceans in the order of Isopoda that are usually found in both terrestrial and aquatic, even though many isopods are found mainly in aquatic, only pill bug and sow bug are found exclusive in the land. Pill and sow bugs are been classify as arthropod phylum of Arthropoda.The body of a pill or sow bug consists of three main parts which are head, thorax and abdomen. The head contains two antennae and mouth parts. The head is a fuse to the first segment of the thorax.
The Cane toad also referred to as Rhinella Mirina is an invasive toad species that is native to subtropic South America. Although they are native to subtropical rain forests, they show a preference for areas modified by humans such as gardens and drainage ditches. These toads reproduce very rapidly and have very few predators due to the toxin present on their skin and parotoid glands behind their eyes. These toads are considered pests due to the havoc they wreck on the other species within the ecosystem. The cane toad was first introduced into northern Queensland, Australia in 1935.
