1: Eukaryote cells are present inside this dog. This organism contains cells with complex structures. If we were to place this dog in an environment, its niche, or role in that particular environment is a prey. The dog was sleeping under the storage house outside so there are a few fleas on his body. These fleas are called parasites because they benefit from the dog at the cost of his blood.Actin, a one of the three main protein classes soluble in aqueous solutions, can be found in the eukaryote cells inside of this dog. Myosin is a fibrous protein that forms together with actin. It is responsible for muscle cells and movements.
2: This tree contains a woody stem. Lignin, a complex chemical compound, can be found in wood. Meristem is the tissue in plants where the growing take place, which in this tree is the tip of the stems and the bottom and the roots. The phloem is the vascular tissue in plants that makes sugar and other products, which is located in the most inner layer of the bark of this plant. Cambium is a type of meristem found in the vascular tissue. Heartwood is found in the dense inner part of a tree, which contains the hardest timber.
3: The shrub over there is an autotroph, which is a producer that makes complex organic compounds from sunlight. Lipids can be found in the cell of this plant along with the human body, as for it is responsible for combining with proteins and carrying out chemical processes. The vascular tissue is a complex conducting tissue. The tissues are long and they look like little pipes. Look closely at a leaf and you will spot the pipe-like tissues that looks like veins on the human body. The xylem is one of the two transport tissues best known as wood. Frond are leaf or leaflike part of a fern or palm.
4: Keratin is a fibrous structural protein that makes up the outer layer of human skin, hair, and nails. The epithelial tissues covers the interior and exterior part of our skin.
5: This hairy leg contains myosin, which is a family of ATP dependent proteins that is in charge of muscle contraction. One can find enzymes, or molecules that catalyzes and increase chemical reactions, inside this leg or the human body, and many other places as well. Connective tissues, or fibrous tissues that makes up the structures of tendons, ligaments, bones, fibers n muscles can also be found in the human body. Glycogen can also be found in human cells. It is a substance stored in bodily tissues. Lipids are another organic compound (fatty acids) that are found in our bodies.
6: The crabs are arthropods, invertebrate animal with a exoskeleton and segmented body. The exoskeleton (shell or outer layer) of these animals are made up of chitin, or fibrous substance consisting of polysaccharides. The crab has a segmented body that shows division of the body.
7: The puny fly on the plant is an insect (a small arthropod animal with six legs and generally one or two sets of wings). The leaf of the plant is made up of cellulose ( an organic compound that makes up the cell wall of green plants. The cuticle layer of this plant is the protective waxy layer that is made by the epidermal cells of leaves.
8: The yellow substance on the flower is pollen ( powder that has gametophytes to produce male gametes necessary for reproduction ). Imagine something dangerous such as a bee, a pollinator that moves pollen from the male anthers to a female stigma of the flower, to be sucking nectar from this flower. That would be considered mutualism ( both interacting organisms benefit. The flowers are getting pollinated and the bees get nectar for the honey. The anther (responsible for producing pollen) is the long male reproductive stamen sticking up from the flower. The flowers ovaries is located dead center of the flower and below the stigma. Angiosperm is found in a plant that as flowers that produces seed in the carpel. Endosperm is the tissue inside of those seeds within the carpel.
9: This is a fleshy fruit with seed. The cherries contain a seed and juicy interior. | This is a dry fruit with seed. It is called Kuala Lumpur, which is a fruit that is marinated in salt and sugar then left out in the sun to dry.
10: This is a human mouth. Inside contains human saliva. Amylase is an enzyme that can be found in human saliva. It is responsible for the breakdown of starches (potatoes) and turning it into sugar.

14: The following fruit is a dry fruit with seed. This is called a Kuala Lumpur. It is marinated in salt and sugar, and then dried in sunlight.
