I am your usual plant cell There are trillions of my kind on all plant I am your usual plant cell. There are trillions of my kind on all plants, grass, and trees. My breed ranges from ten to a hundred micrometers. I am approximately twenty micrometers since I dwell in grass. My organelles stretch out to one to ten micrometers. If you are asking what I really do and how I live, I am going to answer them in this paper. First off, any cells requires a structure, metabolism, energy, nutrients, waste, and communication. I am more complex than most other cells. Bacteria
Animal Behavior Animal Behavior Biology lb Abstract Animal behavior is predictable. Their behavioral tendencies are influenced by the relationship of its anatomy to their environment. By observing various forms of life, and associating the mechanism of their abilities to perform a behavioral action, evolutionary influence thereafter, can be analyzed and deduced from that point. Introduction The science and study of animal behavior involve an enormous array of complicated factors. For instance, stereotyped resp
THE EFFECTS OF ALTITUDE ON HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY Changes in altitude have aTHE EFFECTS OF ALTITUDE ON HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY Changes in altitude have a profound effect on the human body. The body attempts to maintain a state of homeostasis or balance to ensure the optimal operating environment for its complex chemical systems. Any change from this homeostasis is a change away from the optimal operating environment. The body attempts to correct this imbalance. One such imbalance is the effect of increasing altitude on the body's ability to provide adequate oxygen to be utiliz
Proteins made from ribosomes attached to the rough endoplasmic reticul Proteins made from ribosomes attached to the rough endoplasmic reticulum enter the lumen of the ER and move to the smooth endoplasmic reticulum. A small vacuole (vesicle) pinches off the smooth ER and carries the protein to the Golgi apparatus, where it is further processed. ------------------------------------------------------------- Mitochondria are bounded by a double membrane. The inner membrane is folded to form little shelves, called cristae, which project into the matrix, an inner space
Homeostasis and Gas exchange explainedHomeostasis and Gas exchange explained Homeostasis, what is it? The human body’s ability to maintain stable internal condition when the person is threatened by the environment can be described as Homeostasis. Homeostasis monitors factors such as blood pressure, respiration. It produces hormones such as adrenaline. Every single organism the body plays a role in the process of homeostasis. Negative feedback Negative feedback works in order to help us maintain homeostasis. For example to maintain t
Nutrition and YouNutrition and You Nutrition is the relationship of foods to the health of the human body . Proper nutrition means that you are receiving enough foods and supplements for the body to function at optimal capacity. It is important to remember that no single nutrient or activity can maintain optimal health and well being, although it has been proven that some nutrients are more important than others. All of the nutrients are necessary in different amounts along with exercise to maintain proper healt
Respiration Independent Study UnitRespiration Independent Study Unit Part 1- Breathing and CellularRespiration 1.a) breathing- the complex exchange of gases b) Another term to describe breathing is respiration. 2. Three things that are essential to this process are the diffusion of the oxygen and carbon dioxide between lungs between the blood in the transport system, the transportation of oxygen and carbon dioxide by the blood to the body cells and the diffusion of the oxygen and carbon dioxide between the blood and body cells.
In order to carry on photosynthesis green plants need a supply of carb In order to carry on photosynthesis, green plants need a supply of carbon dioxide and a means of disposing of oxygen. In order to carry on cellularrespiration, plant cells need oxygen and a means of disposing of carbon dioxide (just as animal cells do). Unlike animals, plants have no specialized organs for gas exchange. The are several reasons they can get along without them. Each part of the plant takes care of its own gas exchange needs. Although plants have an elaborate liquid transport sys

How Nutrients Get in and Wastes OutHow Nutrients Get in, and Wastes Out. By Faisal Premji Science 10 Assignment -- Part B In a human being, nutrients are necessary for survival. But how are these nutrients obtained? This report will go into depth on how the food we eat gets into our cells, and how the waste products that we produce get out of the body. Also, the unicellular organism Paramecium will be compared with a human being, in terms of all of the above factors. Dietary Nutrients The chief nutrients in a diet are classified
MitochondriaMitochondria Mitochondria are responsible for energy production. They are also the responsible location for which respiration takes place. Mitochondria contain enzymes that help convert food material into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which can be used directly by the cell as an energy source. Mitochondria tend to be concentrated near cellular structures that require large inputs of energy, such as the flagellum. The role of the mitochondria is very important in respiration. In the presence of o
Respiratory DiseasesRespiratory Diseases Respiration is the process of taking in and using oxygen. There are three different phases of respiration: external respiration, internal respiration, and cellularrespiration. External respiration is the intake of oxygen from the environment and the release of carbon dioxide. In internal respiration, oxygen is carried to the cells and carbon dioxide is carried away from the cells. In cellularrespiration, oxygen is used in chemical reactions within the cells. Some Diseases

RespirationRespiration We as humans need a way to gather oxygen from our enviroment to survive. In response our body has a system that carries out respiration which is the distrubition of oxygen to the blood and the disposal of the waste product carbon dioxide. In the human breathing process the first step is the breath in. First we open the mouth and expand our lungs to bring in air. The first place the air travles into our mouths which is an opening in the human body used for taking in air, food, and the
