For the last 5000 years Blackstone Lake and surrounding area has had a stable climate with its current climate of a mean July temperature of 18°C and a mean January day temperature of -7°C. Unlike the summer, the winter is strongly moderated by Georgian Bay. The expected number of frost-free days is 140. As the lake is in a snow belt caused by the lake end effect, it receives at least 2.5 m of snow. The lake effect also contributes to the total annual precipitation of 100 cm.
Have you ever taken a vaccine or medication? Well, the vaccine or medication that you took has most likely been tested by horseshoe crab blood that was drawn from horseshoe crabs. We should interact with horseshoe crabs even though they are a keystone species because we can use their benefits and also help them too. Some ways that we can preserve their species and simultaneously gain benefits is by flipping them over when they are stranded, chitin, and helping them rebuild their breeding habitats after human causes or natural causes such as tornados, and hurricanes. Have you ever seen a horseshoe crab overturned and you wanted to help it?
Lobster is one of the most delightful feasts that exist. However, do people know the fact about the lobster that people cook also feel the pain like a human? Through this essay "Consider the Lobster" by David Foster Wallace, he verbosely examines this topic using the rhetorical strategies. Wallace uses both ethical and logical illustration of lobsters that are embodied in the passage, he trying to assure the readers who are into foods but handled the animal in a wrong way. Moreover, the 56th Maine Lobster Festival (MLF) that held on July 30 through August 3, 2003, represents the evidence of the way lobsters are treated.
Name: Diane Francis Drawer/Group #: G26 PS ID #: 1215058 Three digit mutant code: 489 BIOL 3311 Fall 2015 Lab Section: 5-digit number: 15836 Date: 9/12/2015 TA Instructor Name: Igor Bado Writing Assignment 1: Description of Unknown Mutant Allele Phenotype Based on our results we conclude our Drosophila melanogaster 489 mutant expressed an eye mutation, named “rust”, because the pigmentation of the eye appeared dark brown compared to the bright red eye seen in the wild type flies. After comparing wild type and mutant flies, no differences were apparent during the larva and pupa stages. Newly- enclosed adults appeared the same in all aspects except for the coloration of the eyes, as well as adults that were several days old. Adult flies inhered the same bristle structure,
Horseshoe crabs, marine arthropods known for their horseshoe like shells have been roaming the Earth long before the dinosaurs. These living fossils only inhabit the Eastern Shore and can be found on Delaware beaches such as the Delaware Bay, but these living relics may be in for extinction. Due to this exact reason Delaware has begun studying and protecting these species. Horseshoe crabs are vital to the Delaware Bay ecosystem,
It is said that the foxes were able to cross onto the southern islands since in the past the channel between the islands narrowed down to only five miles across. The oldest fossil is about 6,000 years old. Like most foxes, Island foxes are usually solitary animals, omnivorous, and mark their territory. Island foxes are the smallest fox species in North America. Adults grow up to 12-13 inches in height.
Greeting Fellow tourists My name is Moses Trotman and today i will be talking about the Canadian Shield .Did you know that the Canadian shield is a landform region that covers more than half of Canada ?, located in northeast Alberta, northern Saskatchewan, northern Manitoba, southern Northwest Territories, Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland. Weather and Climate The climate in the Canadian Shield region varies throughout the year. The Canadian Shield region gets 200-300 mm of rain in summer, and 1250-1500mm of snow in winter. The climate in this region can be described as having longer winters and shorter summers. Vegetation This region has lots of precipitation in Quebec and Labrador, which makes a good growing season.
In his 2005 article “Consider the Lobster and Other Essays”, Wallace brings it to the attention of people that lobsters are the one creature that are usually cooked while still alive. Although many people find this practice unproblematic simply believing that lobsters cannot feel pain. This practice causes Wallace to go into observation and research about the life of a lobster and if they can feel pain or not while being boiled alive. Moreover, this observation leads Wallace to question our justifications for eating lobsters, and indeed our eating of animals’ altogether. Furthermore, within the article, Wallace speaks on intricate ideas of pain and morality and human acceptance of animal cruelty.
If you go to Haiti they will tell you it has to do with animals. If you go to Africa they will tell you it has to do with dolls. See it isn’t owed to any meaning yet. The history of voodoo being created is not just depended on one history story told many, many years ago. Wherever you go in this world there will be many different told to you on how voodoo came to life.
The above tables summarize the average monthly temperature from 2 stations in North Florida, Central Florida, and South Florida. One station is located inland and one station is located near the coast. The average monthly temperatures will be analyzed and compared by regions and then compared as a whole using conceptual temperature models. To begin, the two stations that were chosen in North Florida are located in Panama City and Blountstown. Panama City is located near the coast, thus coastal locations typically have a cooler average monthly temperature in summer or cooler average maximum temperature than inland locations.
Although the worms extract the nutrients from the whale bones, scientists did not know how, due to their lack of “body parts for physically drilling into the hard material” and absence of a mouth and gut (Ennis). Instead, it turns out, the worms have special root-like structures that attaches to the bones and dispenses an acid that dissolves the whale bones and extracts the nutrients. Although, the zombie worm is not the only interesting deep sea creacher. The deep sea jellyfish for example, are just as fascinating as the zombie worms. They live about 820 meters below the surface of the ocean (Jonssen).
Because rods are much more light sensitive than cones, you see in black and white in dark environments, not color. For humans there are 3 different types of cones, dog have 2, and butterflies have 5, but the creature that have the most are the mantis shrimp. They have 16 different color cones, and can detect circular polarized light, the only animal that can. This shrimp could see colors that we couldn’t even imagine, colors that we couldn’t even see in our dreams. It can see ultraviolet light, and several different bands we couldn’t even imagine.
