How Organism Evolved Physiologically

Organisms adapt to their environment but what happens when an organism’s surroundings and environment change? Physiological ecology is the study and understanding of that mechanism of living organisms and how living things work. Physiological ecology arises with an understanding of the influence of temperatures. Temperature, along with others, is one of the most important factors… View Article

Body Mass of Earthworms

Earthworms play an important role in the turnover of organic matter in soil and maintaining a good soil structure (Lavelle, 1988).

Diffusion and Osmosis Through Dialysis tubing

We did this experiment to test the diffusion of different substances through dialysis tubing. We used what we knew about diffusion to make predictions on what we thought the mass of the dialysis tubing to be after submerging them for 30 mins and we knew that diffuse occurs from highest concentration to lowest concentration. Since… View Article

The Five Domains of Life: Biology

What are the major characteristics of each of the three domains of life? Why do some researchers believe that the Kingdom Protista should be split into more than one kingdom?

Nature of Communities

At the beginning of the 20th century there was much debate about the nature of communities. The driving question was whether the community was a self-organized system of co-occurring species or simply a haphazard collection of populations with minimal functional integration (Verhoef, 2010). Krebs (1972) described a community as an assemblage of populations of living… View Article

Genetic Inheritance

To what extent does genetic inheritance influence behaviour? Use relevant research studies in your response. There is and has been for a long time now a controversy within the psychology science. This controversy states that until today psychologists can’t assure weather humans’ behaviour is inherited, or that it comes from the environment in which we… View Article

Diffusion Across Biological Membranes

From the cell simulation modal made, it has explained about the aspects of diffusion and indicator solution (chemical testing) to test for particular substances. From the observation made, iodine and glucose have greater concentration due to small molecular size and also they are monomers. It means their molecules are smaller. Thus, it diffused out to… View Article
