1: Heartwood- the dense inner part of a tree trunk, the hardest timber This is a picture of my fence.
2: Cuticle Layer of a Plant- waxy coating that helps prevent desiccation
3: Dicot plant with Flower and Leaf- flower whose seeds typically has two cotyledons or embryonic leaves
4: Modified Leaf of a Plant- the leaf has modified itself to its surroundings
5: Stem-woody- the stem contains wood structures
6: Stem-herbaceous- stem with little or no woody tissue; green; leafy
7: Epithelial Tissue- covers the whole surface of the body
8: Lipid- used for energy storage- the fat in my thighs hold energy and saves it for warmth later on
9: Modified Stem of a Plant- the stem of this plant has modified itself to protect them from outside invaders
10: Niche- the role of this bush is to provide shelter and protection for animals
11: Thorn of a Plant- the thorn of this cactus helps protect itself from other creatures
12: Keratin- key structural component inside hair This is a picture of my younger sibling's hair

14: Flowery Ovary- female reproduction organ of the flower
15: Parasitism- Here, evidence of paratism can be observed, an organism has eaten through the spinach.
16: Pollen- fine course powder that carry the sperm cells
17: Vascular Plant Tissue-the tissue inside the stem transport nutrients and fluids internally
18: Insect- a small arthropod animal that has six legs and generally one or two pairs of wings. The black speck is a picture of a dead beetle.
19: Ectotherm- the turtle is an organism that regulates its temperature by sunbathing This is a picture of 2 turtles at the temple on Synott.
20: Deciduous Leaf- this tree loses its leaves seasonally
21: Amniotic Egg- is any of a group of vertebrates that have an amnion during embryonic development, including reptiles, birds, and mammals.
22: Angiosperm- a plant that has flowers and produces seeds enclosed within a carpel.
23: Annelid- large phylum of segmented worms This is a picture of a worm
24: Arthropod- an invertebrate animal having an exoskeleton, a segmented body, and jointed appendages
25: Basidiomycete- are various members of a large group of fungi bearing sexually produced spores on a basidium.
26: Bryophyte- a non vascular plant that produces neither flowers nor seeds
27: C4 Plant- a plant that utilized the C4 carbon fixation pathway in which the C02 first bound to a phosphoenolypyruvate in mesophyll cell. This is a picture of canned corn. Corn is categorized as a C4 plant
28: Commensalism- a relationship between two organisms where one organism benefits without affecting the other This is a picture of a type of commensalism between a clownfish and anemone on my macbook default wallpaper.
29: Exoskeleton- are organisms that have an external skeleton that supports and protects its body
30: Lepidoptera- an order of insects that comprises the butterflies and moths There is a butterfly blending into the bark of the tree
31: Long Day Plant- are plants that flower only after exposed to light periods longer than a certain critical length
32: Pollinator- an insect that carries pollen from one flower to another This is a picture of bee's hive, bees are a type of pollinator.
33: Protein Fibrous- are insoluble proteins found in skeletal and connective tissue This is a picture of my muscles.
34: Scale from Animal with two chambered heart This is a picture of a red parrot fish
35: Spore- a minute, typically one-celled, reproductive unit capable of giving rise to a new individual without sexual fusion. This is a picture of a bag of edible mushrooms.
36: Dry fruit with seed This is a picture of pistachios
37: Fruit fleshy with seed This is a picture of strawberries
38: Endotherm- creatures that can generate their own body heat using chemical means; they do not require the environment in maintaining their equilibrium This is a picture of two Chihuahua pups
39: Frond- large, divided leaf that are commonly used to describe the leaves of ferns
40: R-Strategist- are categorized by small sizes, and a fast reproduction rate This is a picture of two parrots in a cage.
