  • Animal Cells And Plant Cells
    604 words
    CELL STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION All living things are made of the same basic building blocks, cells. A human is made of 65 trillion cells. Cells are everywhere, on you skin, in your blood, and even on your tongue. In fact, your blood is clear but red blood cells are what make your blood red. Most living things are made up of many cells but some are made of only one cell, like amebas, paramecium, fungi, protists, monera ns, and bacteria. There are two basic types of cells, animal cells and plant cell...
  • Man And Animals And Plants
    1,021 words
    On Aristotle Aristotle is wrong in holding the assumption that humans should be held in higher esteem than animals should, based upon writings that he himself wrote. At times he seems to contradict himself, and at other times makes generalities that could not possibly be taken seriously. He asserts the position that humans should be held in higher esteem than animals. Many of his concepts are intertwined, quite deeply and maybe at first glance seem distinctly far apart, but with study, they can ...

Photosynthesis is a reproductive system that occurs in p...
  • Animal And Plant Cells
    299 words
    Cells were discovered in 1665 by Robert Hooke when he took a piece of cork and looked at it under a microscope. Cork is made up of dead cells but you are still able to see the cells which proved to be interesting to him. He described it as being made up like bricks in a wall and these bricks he then called cells. Due to the size of cells it is nearly impossible to see them without the aid of a light microscope but by using an electron microscope you'd be able to see cells in much greater detail....

Wind speed in the savanna is at about 10 miles per hour. The Savanna is a hot, dry, flat land. The altitude ranges from sea level to about 1,500 m. The savanna is located between 2...
  • Parts Of The Plant
    795 words
    Plants have two different ways to reproduce. The first one is vegetative reproduction. With this type all the plants that have the same parent have the same genetic make-up. This also lets plants pass adaptations on that they have attained over the years. Plants with good genetic make-up usually spread quickly and take over an area. An example of this would be the dandelion. These plants can sprout from any part of the plant. An example of this is the potato, farmers will pick the potatoes and c...

    The field trip to Elk Island Park taken by both biology twenty classes was an interesting and fun day. We learnt about many different types of plant and animal life in different ecosystems and how they contribute to their ecosystem. The two main ecosystems we looked at in detail were the marsh and the bog. We look at and recorded facts about the abiotic and biotic factors in the area to better understand the importance of these ecosystems. The first thing we learnt about was some of the biotic a...
  • Creationists As Evidence For Evolution
    854 words
    Not everyone accepts the Theory of Evolution. There is a group of people who believe in the literal truth of the bible.

According to Creation Theory, everything in the universe was made by God in the six literal days of the creation week. This includes the creation of first human beings, Adam and Eve, from whom al...
  • Every Animal And Plant Cell
    507 words
    In every living thing, on Earth, there are cells. Cells keep living things organized. Just think about it, there is no way you could do everything you do and just be one cell. You would be one big blob, with many pieces (called organelles) floating around inside you. One of the main purposes of cells is to organize. You have brain cells, stomach cells, bone cells, and many other types of cells. Each is different from the others. In the same way that there are different kinds of cells inside you,...
  • Plants And Animals Reside In Rain Forests
