Generalized life cycles for plants and animals Animation

By: HWC, Views: 184

But the life cycles of plants and animals differ in their details. In animals, a multicelled diploid stage gives rise to single-celled haploid gametes, the eggs and sperm. These gametes combine at fertilization to form a diploid zygote, which grows and develops into a new multicelled animal...

Brief Summary on Photosynthesis - Animation

By: HWC, Views: 5535

Can increase its weight by 150 pounds as it grows. Where does the new tissue come from? From the soil? From water? Or possibly from the air? The amazing truth is that new material. comes from an invisible gas in the air. In the process of photosynthesis, plants capture carbon dioxide ga...

Photosynthesis and Van Helmont Experiment

By: HWC, Views: 5817

All energy on Earth comes from a star, the Sun. Light must travel 160 million kilometers to reach Earth where plants capture this light energy and convert it to chemical energy in the form of sugars. This biochemical process is called PHOTOSYNTHESIS. The summary equation for photosynthesis is ...

Electromagnetic Spectrum, Chlorophyll and Pigment & Light

By: HWC, Views: 6267

The sun gives off radiation that is called the electromagnetic spectrum. This is energy that travels as wavelengths and includes radio waves, X-rays and ultraviolet light. A portion of this radiation is known as visible light, and is the type of radiation that plants use to manufacture sugars. ...

Energy Flow - Trophic Levels and Food

By: HWC, Views: 6125

All of these relationships between different species are founded on one thing: energy. Organisms get food in order to get energy, which is used by the organism for growth, maintaining health, and reproduction. We can classify the members of a community according to how they obtain food. Produc...

Red alga life cycle Animation

Life cycle of Porphyra. The most conspicuous part of this algal life cycle is the haploid gametophyte. This sheetlike form is collected and dried for use as nori, the wrapping for sushi. Gametes form in packets interspersed between vegetative cells near the sheet margins. The gamet...

Female Reproductive System - Hormonal regulation (GnRH) الجهاز التناسلي للأنثى - التنظيم الهرموني

By: HWC, Views: 6985

• There is a complex interaction between the anterior pituitary gland, the hypothalamus, the ovaries and the uterus that leads to the monthly changes that women experience during their monthly reproductive cycle. • Two monthly cycles constitute these changes: • Ovarian cycle. • Uter...

Carbon fixing adaptations Animation

By: HWC, Views: 88

Different plants trap carbon by different pathways. Most C3 plants evolved in moist, temperate zones. On hot dry days they close their stomata to conserve water and oxygen accumulates. Under these circumstances, the enzyme rubisco uses oxygen in an inefficient reaction that competes with t...

Bacteriophage (Virus) - Mice Experiment

By: HWC, Views: 6289

Also known as phages, these viruses can be found everywhere bacteria exist including, in the soil, deep within the earth's crust, inside plants and animals, and even in the oceans. Bacteriophages (phages) are viruses of bacteria that can kill and lyse the bacteria they infect. ... The lethalit...
