  • Arabidopsis Thaliana

    It is well known that the temperature that a plant is grown in greatly affects the manner in which that plant grows. If the conditions are too extreme for a plant, then that plant cannot be as productive as other members of its species grown at less extreme temperatures. Such is the case of the pepper or tomato plant; if temperatures are too high for these plants, then the pollen these plants produce becomes inviable and these plants cannot successfully reproduce (Environmental Factors That……

  • Germination Lab Report

    when seeds undergo the process of turning into plants when the right conditions are given. These conditions include water, oxygen, temperature (some seeds may need a warmer/cooler temperature depending on the type of seed) and some seeds may also need a specific amount of light to germinate ( Seeds have an outer shell (seed coat) surrounding them. Inside the seed coat is the embryonic plant and the seed lives off of it’s nutrients until…

  • Nuclear Power Plant Case Study

    being a carbon-free method of generating electricity. In this assessment, we are trying to figure out the contaminant sources of the nuclear power plant. The biggest threat for human’s health is the radioactivity of the chemicals which are being used to created power. Generally speaking, the radioactivity usually comes from the waste of the nuclear power plant, which is created during the nuclear reprocessing. Based on the intensity of these chemicals, they are separated into 3 levels: 1.…

  • Fresh Water Plant Case Study

    holds the fresh water making system shall be designed in such a manner to achieve 100% redundancy during installation. If the fresh water plant on board is less then 2, each plant should be able to produce and supply 100% of the ship’s total daily requirement. If the fresh water plant on board is more then 2, all plant should be of equal capacity with one plant being spare. 2) To prevent contamination of the water, the fresh water tank shall not be joined to another system tank containing a…

  • Brassica Rapa Seeds

    An Investigation of the Effects of Cytokinins during the Germination of Brassica rapa Seeds Germination is a vital stage in a plants life, but it also plays a significant role in other animals’ (including humans) life cycle. It is the process in which a new plant grows from a seed. Due to the fact that plants are autotrophs; they use the process of photosynthesis to transform sunlight and make their own food. Germination occurs in gymnosperms and angiosperms when the seed is using its own…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Genetically Modified Plants

    Genetically modified crop plants Genetically modified crops are considered to be plants which have been modified using genetic engineering to alter their DNA. This is used to introduce a new trait to the plant which doesn’t occur naturally such as resistance to certain diseases, insects, environmental conditions, decreases the likelihood of spoiling, increases resistance to herbicides and/or pesticides, or improve the overall crop. Unlike cross fertilization process, genes that have been…

  • Genetically Modified Foods Environmental Analysis

    The idea of genetically modified (GM) foods is laden with misconception from the public. For over two decades, the presence and use GM foods has grown dramatically. Being under strict regulatory control from its inception, GM foods have been able to feed a greater (and growing) world population and minimize certain aspects of ecological impact of the agricultural industry. The use of genetically modified foods benefits human beings and the environment, and should continue to be utilized with its…

  • Factor Germination

    somewhere else and grow into new plants or when a seed is planted by someone in the ground. Although there are many important factors that are involved in seed germination the three most important ones are water, sunlight, and temperature. Plants are not able to germinate if the seed is watered too much or too little. Plants are not capable to grow food from sunlight when they are seeds, so the seed will use other things, such as water, to help it grow food. When a plant is watered too much it…
