  • Essay On Acadian Flycatcher

    “Scale-dependent habitat use of Acadian Flycatcher (Empidonax virescens) in central Ohio” by Marja H. Bakermans and Amanda D. Rodewald, published in 2006, examines the selection of habitat across three spatial scales and the effects of understory arthropod biomass, vegetation structure and breeding productivity. As human populations grow and urban development increases desirable habitat for many habitat-specific species decreases resulting in population declines. It is important to understand…

  • The Impact Of Biological Invasions On Food Webs

    the food web (Chen & Wise 1999; Scherber et al. 2010). Garlic mustard can reduce mycorrhizal fungal abundances (both ecto- and arbuscular) via allelopathy, which is an important resource for springtails and fungivorous mites (Chen et al. 1996). Arthropod predators such as spiders, centipedes, and predatory mites can all consume fungivores for prey in the soil food web (Chen & Wise 1999; Koehler 1999). Therefore I predict: (1) garlic mustard invasion will have a negative effect on soil fungivore…

  • Importance Of Locomotion In Animalia

    Locomotion is the movement of a body from one place to another. There are various ways in which species of organisms in the 9 major phylum classes of the kingdom Animalia adapted unique muscle systems and how they use them. A phylum class includes organisms that are different but share important characteristics that resulted from evolutionary relationships among major groups of animals that allowed organisms to adapt in terms of the way they locomote. The Phylum Porifera is made up of sea…

  • Essay On Coelomates

    embryos undergo spiral cleavage, which mean micromeres between micromeres. The cells that formed are determinate, which means that the blastomere fate is established during the early stages of development. Animals like Platyhelminthes, Molluscs, and Arthropods are examples of some protostomes. Deuterostome development means that an organism develops anus first near the blastopore…

  • Triple ET Innovator Vaccination

    this disease is in birds and sometimes rodents. Arthropods, like mosquitoes, mites and lice, are the main vectors for EEE, WEE and VEE. These arthropods feed on the bird and rodent populations, which are the carriers, and transmit it to the victim animal, which are mainly horses. Interestingly enough, while not a vector for transmission, reptiles, such as snakes, have been known to be carriers over winter months. It is important to note that the arthropod vector is essential for spread of this…

  • Porifer Animalia

    Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Porifera Classification information for Poriferans: Poriferans, better known as sponges, consist of 5000 known species, all located primarily in marine and fresh waters (Myers, 2001a). They are multicellular, heterotrophic, invertebrates with an irregular shape and no distinct pattern of symmetry (Myers, 2001a). Overall, they are the simplest of animals; thus, lacking any true tissue and/or germ layers (Myers, 2001a). Furthermore, they are known to be highly sessile,…

  • Mysterious Disease During The Holocaust

    During World War II a horrific event occurred in history known as the Holocaust. Jews all throughout Europe were condemned and persecuted by the Nazis. However, before facing their unjust death they were placed in concentration camps located in Germany. The Jews were exterminated in different ways at the camps. An abundance of Jews imprisoned in the concentration camps died from the diseases that were obtained in the camp due to lack of human necessities. These diseases were caused by severe…

  • Tick Trap Essay

    habitats (Ginsberg and Ewing 1988). One type of trapping methods to use is the dry ice baited tick trap. This method can be accomplished by inserting dry ice into a container that has a slight opening to allow the carbon dioxide gas to exit, and the arthropods will be trapped by a layer of masking tape around the container. Because the ticks and other hemophagic vectors are attracted to the carbon dioxide emitted by humans and animals, thus the dry ice is effective in stimulating their host…

  • Essay On Compound Eyes

    The two different types There are two types of eyes in the world of today. There are what one calls compound eyes and there are vertebrate eyes. Compound eyes also known as Arthropod eyes, can be traced back to an arthropod called trilobite. These ancestors didn 't have complex lenses like those of today but instead, their eyes and lenses were made of the same rock that made their skin - calcite. Compound eyes today contain many ommatidia (singular: ommatidium) which consist of a corneal lens,…
