    as to why the Brazilian pepper tree is a negative entity in Florida. The plant itself bears large clusters of fruit which is frequently sought after by avifauna; when a pepper tree grows near water, its fruits have the chance of falling in and being dispersed (Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants, n.d.). Consequently, because of the Brazilian pepper tree’s many seeds and avenues for dispersal, it is quite easy for the plant to ‘divide and conquer,’ or, spread and take over ecosystems.…

Elysia chlorotica, or the sea slug, have acquired the ability to conduct photosynthesis in their adult stages of life through their consumption of Vaucheria litorea. Vaucheria litorea are algae that are the primary diet of the developed sea slugs. Juvenile slugs acquire this ability when they ingest the algae…

    experiment that was conducted, the presence of agricultural runoff is harmful to an elodea plant. Although the rate of growth was only minorly affected, the harsh chemicals in the solution killed the plants. The null hypothesis cannot be rejected since the Chi-square value, 3.34, is less than the critical value of 7.81, as can be seen in Table 1. Additionally in Figure 1, the differences in the height of the plants are trivial, for they are only off by a few centimeters. The control group showed…
