BC: Here we can see ducks, bipedal animals that help contribute to the ecosystem through various means. They help disperse seeds, and contribute to CO2 production for plants.
FC: NGA'S BOOK OF BIOLOGY FUN!
1: This is an example of thorn of a plant, because if examined closely one can see the thorn popping out of rose stem. It also contains a stem – herbaceous which is a stem that dies down at the end of the season
2: This is a n example of an amnotic egg because by definition it is a "The type of egg produced by reptiles, birds, and prototherian (egg-laying) mammals (amniotes), in which the embryo develops inside an amnion. The shell of the egg is either calcium-based or leathery." Therefore these eggs qualify as an amnotic egg becuase it was produced by a chicken which is a bird.
3: Basidiomycota are by definition is one of two large phyla that, together with the Ascomycota, comprise the subkingdom Dikarya (often referred to as the "higher fungi") within the kingdom Fungi. Therefore the picture consist of mushroom which are in the fungi kingdom.
4: This is an adaption of a plant because due to definition adaption of a plant is "Adaptations are special features that allow a plant or animal to live in a particular place or habitat. " Therefore one can clearly see that this plant very alive, green and healthy. It's able to adapt to the habitat. | In this picture the ovary of a flower is present because according to definition "The usually paired female or hermaphroditic reproductive organ that produces ova and, in vertebrates, estrogen and progesterone." Therefore the yellow stuff which is pollen of the flower or the egg is present in the ovary.
5: This is a picture of a fern. Unlike mosses, this fern, as well as all ferns, has xylem and phloem. Ferns have stems, leaves, and roots composed of vascular plant tissue. The xylem and phloem are the two types of transport vascular plant tissue. The xylem helps transport water, and phloem helps transport nutrients such as sucrose. Ferns reproduce via spores. Spores are reproductive structures that are formed to help reproduction occur during more favorable times. Spores are produced during meiosis in the sporophyte.
6: This picture consists of saliva on a tongue which has abscisic acid because it is a "single compound unlike the auxins, gibberellins, and cytokinins. " Saliva does not consist of any of the ingredients above because it has " Human saliva is composed of 99.5% water, while the other 0.5% consists of electrolytes, mucus, glycoproteins, enzymes, and antibacterial compounds such as secretory IgA and lysozyme
7: stem – herbaceous which is a stem that dies down at the end of the season and doesn't contain a hard wood stem. In this photo the stem is clearly not a wood stem and would die when winter comes. | Sponges are also known as Porifera.
8: Archaebacteria is a group of single-celled microorganisms, and is found in Initially, archaea were seen as extremophiles that lived in harsh environments, such as hot springs and salt lakes, but they have since been found in a broad range of habitats, including soils, oceans, marshlands and the human colon. Therefore this picture consists of archaebacteria becuase they are able to live in soil now.
9: Here we have a photograph of everyday grass. Cellulose is the structural component of the main cell wall of green plants. Cellulose is a very common organic substance, comprising of 33% of plants. | We can see green plants which are also known as autotrophs. Autotrophs are producers, taking in sunlight to produce their energy source.
10: We can see the trunk of a tree. Although not clearly pictured in this picture, moss, a bryophyte, generally grow on the bark of the trunk of the tree.
11: This is an example of a pine cone. A pine cone is an organ on plants in the division Pinophyta (conifers) that contains the reproductive structures. The familiar woody cone is the female cone, which produces seeds. | Here we see a seed. Surrounding the seed, is a layer of tissue called the endosperm. The primary function of endosperm is to protect the seed of the flowering plant inside.
12: This picture of a flower shows a long-day plant. Long-day plants are responsive to sunlight, and will flower depending on if they get sufficient sunlight. | Here we see leaf that are gymnosperms. These plants produce seeds that are uncovered. They differ from angiosperms which produce seeds covered in an ovary.
13: We can see a flowering plant here. Most plants are hermaphrodites, this is, that these plants contain both the male and female reproductive organs required to produce offspring.
14: We see in this picture fungi in a pond. A major component of the cell walls of fungi is chitin. Chitin is also prevalent in many animals such as mollusks, octopuses, squids, and insects. Its function can be comparable to that of cellulose in green plants.
15: We can see a pond ecosystem here. Organisms such as micro-bacteria, moss, fungi, arthropods, and insects all contribute to its continued growth.
16: This is a picture of a fruit To be more precise it is an apple A fruit is a slowering plant generally the fruit protects the seed for seed dispersal. humans and animals alike have become dependant on fruit for survival
17: This is a picture of a bee. Bees are animals with segmented bodies. These insects are common pollinators. Not only do they help plants by distributing pollen from one plant to another, they also reap the benefits from the nectar of the plants. Bees are also arthropods, with exoskeleton, segmented bodies, and jointed appendages.
