    • 4 Pages

    analysing these two poems we can observe that “Fern Hill” by Dylan Thomas and “Let’s go to Barry Island, Maggie fach” by Idris Davies have many similarities as well as many differences. This can be seen during many occasions throughout both poems. In both poems the two main themes are people and places. In the poem “Fern Hill” the theme of people is revealed in the first stanza as Dylan Thomas personifies “Time” so that the reader thinks that “time” is a person. Dylan Thomas presents the theme of places for the first time in the title as it states “Fern Hill”. Fern Hill is a farm in Wales. Similarly Idris Davies introduces the theme of places in the title as it says “Let’s go to Barry Island, Maggie fach”. The place that Idris Davies…

    In the poems “Fern Hill” by Dylan Thomas and “in-Just” by e. .e cummings they focus largely on the concepts of growing up. The concept of losing one’s innocence is shown in both of these poems through the realizations in the last stanzas. That is when both of the authors realized that the innocence has been lost and things are not as they once thought that they were. Both of the authors told stories of their past to exemplify this, both poems I believe are written from the perspective of an…

    A hundred million years ago a dark green, feeble Lexovisaurus emerged from a shiny, white egg. This Lexovisaurus’ name was Jacob, Jacob started walking towards a wet, lively fern plant. Jacob was obviously hungry after spending weeks in an egg so he immediately started eating. His small brothers came to eat the same fern plant because they were all born in the same nest. Lexovisaurus looked a lot like Stegosaurus but Lexovisaurus had more spikes. While the baby Lexovisaurus were eating, a bulky…

    The moss Physcomitrella patens is an attractive model system for plant biology and functional genome analysis.(1-7) It shares many biological features with higher plants (vascular plants) but has the unique advantage of an efficient homologous recombination system for its nuclear DNA.(2,3) This allows precise genetic manipulations and targeted knockouts to study gene function, an approach that due to the very low frequency of targeted recombination events is not routinely possible in any higher…

    Who’s the better reproducer? With time comes change and with change comes evolution. Organisms are classified into three distinctive groupings: Bacteria, Archea, and Eukarya and the kingdom of plants (Plantae) falls under Eukarya. It could be argued that plants are one of the most valued organisms on Earth. Not only do they provide oxygen for the oxygen dependant organisms, such as mammals through the process of photosynthesis, but, they also provide stable conditions and habitats for other…

    Ceratopteris Richardi

    • 685 Words
    • 3 Pages

    The ferns that we used in the experiment are called Ceratopteris richardii (C-ferns). These ferns were used because of their exclusive properties in development and in the plant life cycle. In these plants, the haploid and diploid stages exist independently, making it easier to study them without influencing the cell life cycle. The haploid stage is the gametophyte stage and the diploid is the sporophyte stage. The second exclusive property that these plants possess is the fact that the spores…
