Hot Zone Post 4

Within the fourth part of the Hot Zone, the author travels to Africa. He travels the exact same path as Monet to the same summit where the Ebola was first dicovered . Although he is worried he could possibly expose himself to the deadly virus he continues on to the summit. In the end of the book the author concludes his thoughts that the virus and all of its strains are simple defense meconisms of the earth. He states that there is sO much around us such as illnesses and much more that the virus is something that earth has created or established in order to bring an equal balance back the world.

Although it was just a book the reality of tue Ebola virus and it’s reach from society can be a little frightening. However the book itself was a good read and very descriptive when describing the effects Of such a virus. I was left with zero questiOns and a better understanding of the Ebola virus. Thank you!

Yeast in bread is considered a uni cellular organism. In the the word it defines the organism, it functions with one cell.

A C4 plant is to be considered an upgrade of a C3 plant. Corn is a perfect example of this. It grows in arid areas and intense sunlight.

A mushroom is an example of a fungus with mycelium. The mycelium within it contributes toward the fact that mushrooms sprout rapidly and multiple areas at once.

Roots of this tree is an example of something containing meristem. This is what promotes the growth of most plants.

This beautiful rose Adam gave me is an example of an adaption of a plant. The thorns protect it from small animals and insects.

Hot Zone Post three

This book is becoming more and more suspenseful each time I pick it up. It is somewhat disturbing at the same time, having to hear about all the monkey’s dying and how quickly the virus Ebola is beginning to spread. It is just so sad that 400 more monkeys died this part due to this disease. Hopefully now that the Military are cleaning out the Monkey’s houses and gathering information to add toward their research, it will do nothing but benefit, so the monkeys can stop dying so quickly. But it was interesting to see the military handle the whole situation and to the CDC. The disease is becoming immensely powerful which of course makes it more dangerous, especially due to the daunting fact that it is beginning to affect humans and cause them to suffer because of this virus, but it is not nearly as painful as the monkeys affect towards it. It scars me thinking about the viruses and the dangerous effects accompanied with them. Also, it makes me worry about how this stuff can affect the real world.
