AP Biome Project

  1. 1. Adaptation of an Animal <ul><li>This is an example of an adapaption of an animal. This gazelle is known as the Giraffe Gazzelle because of its long neck. The neck is used to reach plant leaves in trees that are in the high places. This was also taken at the memphis zoo. </li></ul>
  2. 2. Herbivore <ul><li>Herbivore: The hippopotamuse is one of the worlds largest herbivores. A single hippo may eat up to 88 pounds of grass in one night. Males average out at about 1.5 tons while females are a little smaller at &quot;only&quot; 1.4 tons. Also taken at the Memphis Zoo </li></ul>
  3. 3. Species <ul><li>Species - a group of organisms capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring of both genders. This group of meerkats is an example of a species, this was taken at the Memphis Zoo. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Glycogen <ul><li>Glycogen is found in most grain products. Our main source of energy comes from it and it is made out of Glucose. Our liver and muscle cells are made up of much of Glycogen. Glycogen can also be found in a variety of insects throughout the earth. This image was taken at the Memphis Zoo. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Homeostasis <ul><li>Sleep timing depends upon a balance between homeostatic sleep propensity, the need for sleep as a function of the amount of time elapsed since the last adequate sleep time. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Carbohydrates <ul><li>The potatoes is another great source of Carbohydrates. This was taken at Miss Cordelias, a local grocery store next to my house in Mud island. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Long Day Plants <ul><li>  Long Day Plant - A long-day plant requires fewer than a certain number of hours of darkness in each 24-hour period to induce flowering. These plants typically flower in the late spring or early summer as days are getting longer. </li></ul>
  8. 8. 3 rd Level Carnivores <ul><li>These jaguars are examples of 3 rd level Carnivores. Carnivores at the third level feed on herbivores. This was taken at the Memphis zoo. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Amniotic Egg <ul><li>The type of egg produced by reptiles, birds, and egg-laying mammals , in which the embryo develops inside an amnion. This was taken at my refrigerator. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Anther and Filament- Stamen <ul><li>The stamen is the male organ of a flower. Each stamen has a stalk called the filament and, on top of the filament, an anther. This was taken at the Memphis Zoo – Zoological Center. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Asexual Reproduction <ul><li>Asexual is reproduction which does not involve meiosis or fertilization. Only one parent is involved in asexual reproduction. Also taken at the Zoo. </li></ul>
  12. 12. ATP <ul><li>ATP is a nucleotide that contains a large amount of chemical energy stored in its high-energy phosphate bonds. Animals and Humans both produce ATP. Taken at Zoo. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Autotroph <ul><li>Autotrophs are the producers in a food chain, such as plants on land or algae in water. Produce energy via Photosynthesis. Taken in my backyard. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Biome <ul><li>A major ecological community of organisms adapted to a particular climatic or environmental condition on a large geographic area in which they occur. Taken with my phone at the Shelby Forest Lake. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Endosperm <ul><li>Nutritive tissue surrounding the embryo within seeds of flowering plants. Also taken at my house. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Enzyme <ul><li>A catalyst or a chemical produced by cells to speed up specific chemical reaction. Taken on my Kitchen Counter. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Ethylene <ul><li>  In plants, it prevents cells from elongating and promotes leaf Abscission, while sometimes being responsible for the ripening of fruit. Taken at the park behind my house. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Genetically Modified Organism <ul><li>An organism whose genetic material has been modified or altered, especially through genetic engineering techniques. This cantaloupe has been edited so it can be fresh longer. Taken at my refridgertor. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Hydrogen Bonding <ul><li>A low-energy attractive force between hydrogen and another element. It is what makes the properties of water, proteins, and other compounds. Taken at my refrigerator. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Meristem <ul><li>Undifferentiated tissue from which new cells are formed, as at the tip of a stem or root. This Bamboo was taken at the Memphis Zoo. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Modified Root of a plant <ul><li>These carrots were taken at the Farmers Market. They are examples of modified roots of a plan since they grow before the leaves at the top do and are eaten. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Modified Stem of a Plant <ul><li>Typical stems are located above ground, but there are modified stems that can be found either above or below ground. Modified stems located below ground are bulbs (which are actually primarily the enlarged base of the plant's leaves). Taken at my house. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Phloem <ul><li>Tissue forming part of the plant vascular system, responsible for the transport of organic materials, especially sucrose, from the leaves to the rest of the plant. This tree was taken at Shelby Farms. </li></ul>
  24. 24. Phylum <ul><li>This tuna, which is part of the level below kingdom and above class, is an example of Phylum, which is a group of animals that have notochords at some time in their life cycle. Taken on my kitchen counter. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Pollen <ul><li>The microspores of seed plants, the powdery mass of microspores shed  from anthers. Taken at the Botanic Gardens in Memphis. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Protein <ul><li>A molecule composed of polymers of amino acids joined together by peptide bonds It can be distinguished because it contains Nitrogen. Cheese is a great source of Protein. Taken at my refridgerator. </li></ul>

  43. 43. Calvin Cycle <ul><li>The  Calvin cycle  (or  Calvin-Benson-Bassham cycle , light-independent reaction, or carbon fixation) is a series of biochemical reactions that take place in the stroma of chloroplasts in photosynthetic organisms. This grass field is a perfect example, taken from my trip in England at a large farm land. </li></ul>
  44. 44. Adaption of an Animal <ul><li>The Gerenuk is an example because its neck has had to adapt so it could gather tree leaves too high for other animals to reach and they also stand on their hind legs. </li></ul>
  45. 45. Family <ul><li>This is an example of Family. Its my mom, sister, brother, and cousin. Even though we are all different, we share some of the same traits. </li></ul>
  46. 46. Heterotrophs <ul><li>This Falcon in my hand is an example of Hetertrophism. Heterotrophs are known as consumers in food chains and obtain organic carbon by eating other heterotrophs or autotroph </li></ul>
