I know, I know. I missed a week @__@ I’m sorry Vandy, but with schedule pick up week + key club obligations, the assignment slipped through the cracks of my mind. SORRY! Here’s everything up to catch me up to date.

Basidiomycete

This is a bag of cut up mushrooms. Mushrooms are an example of basiodiomycete which is one of two large phyla that, together with the Ascomycota, comprise the subkingdom Dikarya within the Kingdom Fungi. Basidiomycete include mushrooms, puffballs, stinkhorns, etc.

C4 Plant

 C4 Plants use a supplementary method of CO2 uptake which forms a 4-carbon molecule instead of the two 3-carbon molecules of the Calvin cycle. Corn is an example of a C4 Plant.

CAM Plant

CAM Plants, or crassulacean acid metabolism plants, are also C4 plants but instead of segregating the C4 and C3 pathways in different parts of the leaf, they separate them in time instead. Pineapples are great examples of CAM Plants.

Ectotherm

Ahah…I didn’t have any shrimp on hand, sooooo SHRIMP FLAVORED RAMEN! Shrimps are ectotherms and are dependent on environmental heat sources.

Enzymes

Enzymes are proteins that catalyze chemical reactions. Oranges are an example because they contain different enzymes.

Epithelial Tissue

Epithelial tissue covers the whole surface of the body. It is made up of cells closely packed and ranged in one or more layers. The tissue that covers my face is an example of epithelial tissue.

Genetically Modified Organism

A Genetically Modified Organism  is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. Tomatoes can be used as an example because they are the most common produce that are used in genetic engineering.

Niche

These are BROTHERS. Their Niche, or relational position in it’s environment, within the family is to be annoying and stay up all night playing video games knowing they have to wake up early the next day for Church. This is the result of that role.

Pollinator

I pulled a Meagan! I didn’t want to take a picture of an actual bee, so here’s  Buzz! He is the perfect example of a pollinator, the biotic agent that moves pollen from the male anthers of a flower to the female stigma of a flower to accomplish fertilization.

Population

A population is all the organisms that both belong to the same species and live in the same geographical area.  I didn’t want to go outside, so here’s part of the populations of Hello Kitty items/Stuffed Animals within my room!

THE HOT ZONE: PART 3

Things are getting crazy. The cleaning out of the monkey house was a very intense scene. However, it makes sense because we don’t want any of those monkeys getting out and infecting more people. I feel that the action taken was appropriate and sensible. It was rather worrisome when that one monkey escaped but luckily they were swift enough to catch it and take care of it. It was sad that Nancy’s dad died, just another moment to add to the building drama of the story. In the end I hope they find out more about the virus and be very careful with how they decide to see it. Whether it’s a major or minor threat.
