Yogart is an example of eubacteria. Nuts and butter are examples of lipids. The big fluffed up bird is deminstraiting bird’s maiting habbit. The hole in the wall is a niche of a lizard. Bread contains yeast, which in unicellular. Dogs, like most living orginanisms, are filled with connective tissues. The ant pile is full of ants that have segmented bodies. Blue berries are a source of enzymes. The yellow thing of flowers that make pollen is called the stamen.

In part three of the hot zone, the army kills all the monkies in the monkey house to prevent mass outbreaks. I am still lost as to why so many monkies are being imported. The details in this book are still upkeeping their ability to create vivid images.  This book does a really good job of making the readers grasp how hard and dangerous some jobs are, and how the people that do these jobs live for their job-it is their passion(how Nancy kept working instead of visiting her father).

Lettuce is an example of a day plant. Rice is a c3 plant. Oil is hydrophobic and will not dissolve in watrer. Salt is hydrophilic and will dissolve in water. Pineapples are CAM plants. Fish are ectotherm and have their body tempreture regulated by their enviornment. Crabs have excoskeletens. Bananas are loaded with enzymes.


In the second part of The Hot Zone, the story makes me have to ask… Who is buying so many dang monkeys? Besides reasearch, no one owns mokeys as a pet, so how are there so many shipped to America? I think that the first part was more entertaining to read about, than part two was, but at least I didnt lose my appitite.

The book uses spectacular imagery, well enough that one can vividly
picture every symptom of every virus. The author is very specific about
details, even those such as a family has bought a Cadillac with red leather
seats, but the sold it for a Honda accord. The combination of both of these
rhetorical devices, makes understanding how devastating and grotesque level
four hot viruses are. I learned from this book that if ever on vacation, one
should never touch anything that isn’t 100% sanitary, especially something that
an animal might have left either blood, or excrements on. Also, avoid touching
other peoples body fluids, for many viruses are transmitted through them. The
book does make me wonder, do any viruses NOT originate in caves in the middle
of Africa?
