FC: The Science of Biology
1: This a thorn of a plant. The thorn of a plant is to protect the plant from mammals who would eat this plant. The thorn is located along the
2: This is a auxin producing area of a plant. You could see the production of the hormone auxin to produce a a new root and shout.
3: This is an example of modified leaf. It has a shape and structure to receive sunlight and photosynthesis. Patterns run down this leaf to show modifications and extra abilities in a leaf.
4: This is a deciduous leaf or refereed to "a falling mature leaf". Removed from a neighboring tree, this leaf falls of during seasonal changes.
5: Epithelial tissue could be found on the skin of a human. This tissue covers the surface of the body. Composed of compressed and tight cells, they form the formation of the tissue.
6: Gymnosperm cone, is a group of naked seeds. Such a vascular plat would produce this cone which contain seeds not inside of a ovary.
7: A lichen are composite organisms consisting of a symbiotic relationship between a fungus (the mycobiont) and a photosynthetic partner. They can be found in wet surfaces, rocks or trees.
8: This is a tree cambium, where the cambium section is responsible for increases in tree diameter (by creating annual rings) and r produces callus tissue to damage parts. This could be found between the wood and bark of a tree.
9: This is a group of insects. Commonly known as the wasp, this is a small arthropod animal. They could be found in the plants, bushes, or thriving vegetation.
10: A spider is branched towards the arthropod family. These creatures have properties of a exoskeleton, segmented bodies, and jointed appendages.
11: This is a example of adaptation of an animal. If you noticed, this k9 has a large and long vertical ear to detect sound of food or prey.
12: A dry seed , are found in fruits that are either indehiscent or dehiscent. They are located in the middle of a dry fruits.
13: Fleshy seeds are define as seeds who's pericarp (fruit wall) is fleshy at maturity. These seeds are found in fruits such as berries and stone fruit.
14: A basidiomycete, is one of the two large phyla, which resides in the fungi kingdom. They help the environment by decomposing dead material or organism. They can be found on the forest floor or trees.
15: A conifer leaf, any gymnosperm of the phylum Coniferophyta, typically bearing cones and evergreen leaves. Usually found on trees and scrubs.
16: The term frond refers to a large, divided leaf.
17: This is a tendril of a plant, which helps the plants climb obstacles and provide support. They can be found on the end of the stems of a plant.
18: An ectotherm organism relies on sources of heat to provide and control body temperatures throughout the body. This turtle may sun bath for warmth and heat energy.
19: Incest such as a grasshopper are are a class of living creatures within the arthropods that have a chitinous exoskeleton, a three-part body, three pairs of jointed legs, compound eyes, and one pair of antennae
20: Pollen can be describe as a powdery substance that contain male gametes to allow reproduction with in female ovary seeds. They could be found on the microsporangium
21: This radish have a modified stem that contains Rhizome. These rhizome help store food and help renew growth.
22: PORTFOLIO | A myceilum are very hairy or threadlike shape bodies of fungus. They absorb nutrients in the ground for the plant and break down dead waste.
23: PORTFOLIO | A Mycorrhizae is a relationship between the roots of a plant and that of a fungus. The fungus controls the host's roots to perform arbuscular mycorrhizal. They are found near the roots of a plant
24: PORTFOLIO | The role of an organism in the wild is called a niche. This earth worms helps fertilize the soil and decompose organic waste.
25: PORTFOLIO | The annelids are large phylum of segmented worms. They nourish the soil and dirt of the wild. They can be found in the dirty or muddy regions.
26: PORTFOLIO | An amniotic egg, holds the embryo of a developing organism which is surrounded and nourished by amino solutions. The egg is protected by a hard surface during the process.
27: PORTFOLIO | The gastropod are a large taxonomic class within the phylum Mollusca. These organism dwell in wet and muddy conditions.
28: PORTFOLIO | The finger nail is a perfect example of fibrous protein. The nail itself is composed of Keratin, a fibrous protein producing cells that make up the formation of our nail. They could be found in our nails, hair and epidermis in our skin.
29: PORTFOLIO | Fibrous carbohydrates are enriched with minerals, vitamins, and nutrients. A vegetable like broccoli retain all these characteristics and are very healthy.
30: PORTFOLIO | A carrot is a modified root because it has a modified tap root that is conical. Towards the base of the carrot, it is very broad and slims down at the bottom.
32: PORTFOLIO | This butterfly provides in great detail as to what Batesian mimicry is. If you noticed the patterns and arrangement of colors and spots on the butterfly's wing, they mimic the warning signals of a harmful species directed at a common predator.
33: PORTFOLIO | This is a walnut. A walnut lays within the boundaries of a nut. A nut is a known lipid that stores energy. They have healthy oils, unsaturated fats, and polyunsaturated fatty acid.
34: PORTFOLIO | Xerophyte is a plant is a plant that has adapted to survive in an environment that lacks water. Here we see a cactus that retains shapes or does internal structures to save water. A cactus has spikes to defend itself from animals who would steal this water and has an outter layer to shield itself from heat and watter loss .
35: PORTFOLIO | A eukaryote organism has cells contain complex structures enclosed within membranes.
36: PORTFOLIO | This crab has a exoskeleton. A exoskeleton is a rigid external covering for the body in some invertebrate animals, esp. arthropods. This crab has a hard protected armor to protect its vital organs and provide safety from predators.
37: PORTFOLIO | Echinoderms are a phylum of marine animals. This is a sea urchinant and this phylum are known for their radical symmetry. l
38: Earthworms are great examples of hermaphrodites because they retain reproductive organs from both opposite sexs. This worm could reproduce offspring without the need of a partner
39: This is a perfect example of a R-strategists because they reproduce offspring in a quick session. Such offspring are independent more quickly without parental support. They have relative small bodies and produces a fairly large population.
40: A dog could be listed as a K-strategists, because they reproduce slowly but provide parenting and support to their off-spring. They are fairly large and reproduce slowly. They have a stable and functional population.
