  • George Hadley's Single-Cell Atmospheric Global Circulation Model

    Atmospheric Global Circulation is the movement of air caused by solar energy and the interaction of warm and cold air - this convergence forms cells or belts over the Earth’s surface. George Hadley (1685–1768) a British physicist and meteorologist, who first described this theory in 1753, did so using what is known as the Single-Cell Atmospheric Global Circulation Model or Hadley Cell (The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica, 2007). Hadley’s Single-Cell theory failed to consider the Coriolis Effect which prevents air from traveling directly to the poles and could not explain the westerly winds in the mid-latitudes (The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica, 2007). In the 1850’s research provides greater insight to the westerlies and polar easterlies,…

  • Essay On Osmosis And Salinity

    Discovering a new world below the ocean intrigues me. I have never been one for loving ocean creatures, but I do enjoy learning about the world below us. I found several facts interesting as I read the articles including: how osmosis and salinity functions, how seawater cells move, how pH affects the ocean, how decomposition works in the environment, how upwelling stirs up nutrients, and how water temperature affects organisms. One of the interesting facts discusses why osmosis and salinity…

    species (Miller & Hammond, 2003). The larvae digestive system begins with the mouth, leads to the esophagus, and to the malpighian tubules, where nitrogenous wastes are filter and ion regulation takes place. The malpighian tubules lead toward the hind intestine and finally to the rectum, through which the wastes are eliminate (Douglas,1989). Caterpillars grow through time and increase in size each time they shed their skins which also known as molt. After molting, their skin is shed and develop…

  • Analysis Of Your Inner Fish By Neil Shubin

    Neil Shubin’s documentary series “Your Inner Fish” explores the relationship between humans and all other living organisms. Shubin delves into human evolution to uncover similarities that connect humans with the world around them. The anatomist studies fossils, embryos, and various other parts to compare humans to fish, reptiles, and primates. Shubin challenges the common beliefs about evolution by recognizing the corresponding features between humans and seemingly unrelated organisms. The…

  • Human Cloning: The Characteristics Of Humans?

    the chromosomes. Clones come from a scientific process called the somatic cell nuclear transfer or SCNT. During this process, scientists remove the chromosomes from the egg cell and replace them with the nucleus of a somatic cell which contains two sets of chromosomes. Since the nucleus of the somatic cell comes from a human who already displays genetic variation from their mother and father, the clone will receive both of their sets of chromosomes from one cell, and not from both the egg and…

  • Animal Testing In Medicine

    studies that can contradict predetermined concepts. Therefore, researchers can be studying a peculiarity of some specie that can be resulted by many different factors. Trying to apply this new discovery in humans can be catastrophic as these new concepts cannot be applicable to human beings. For example in 1960’s, experimentation on animals showed that the tobacco did not cause lung cancer, although it caused some minor issues. This research was used for years as an argument to delay the…

  • Animal Cell Process Lab Report

    headquarters, and with that our micro-V96 craft was propelled towards the cell membrane for the first leg of our journey to investigate the process of Protein Synthesis in a eukaryotic animal cell. The cell membrane is a delicate wall of phospholipid molecules, consisting of hydrophilic heads and hydrophobic tails that swayed and looked like a mosaic. Our craft could not enter the cell directly through the semi-permeable membrane as it consisted of a negatively charged polysaccharide which was…

  • Persuasive Essay On Gm Foods

    they are developed because there is some perceived advantage either for the producer or consumer of these foods. This is meant to translate into a product with a lower price, greater benefit in terms of durability or nutritional value. How can DNA be moved from one organism to another? • Find an organism with the desired trait • Isolate the gene sequence that codes for the desired trait • Insert the gene sequence into the genome of the plant cell • Allow the genetically altered cell to grow…

  • Should Human Cloning Be Banned

    Cloning is the production of one or more individual organisms that are genetically identical. The copied organism, which has the same genetic code as the original, is called a clone. In the last two decades, Cloning technology has been becoming mature, and been broadly applied on agriculture, human health, and many fields. Breeding by cloning is able to being directly reproduce an animal with a desirable set of genetic traits, the world 's most famous clone is Dolly the sheep that is the first…

  • Eukaryotes: A Genetic Analysis

    For all organisms, prokaryotes and eukaryotes, they all must regulate the specific genes that are expressed at any given time (Campbell 365). Each organism continuously turn on and off genes in response to external and internal environmental signals. The regulation of gene expression is especially important in multicellular organisms since it is essential for the different types of cell to have their own cell specialization (Campbell 365). In order for each cell to do it’s given role, they each…
