What is ecosystem? (my viewpoint before the trip)• Ecosystem is a habitat where the animals and plants live.What is ecosystem? (my viewpoint after the trip)•An ecosystem is a reciprocal relationship between the habitat and the living organism.They cannot live without each other. So, if one part of ecosystem is damaged ordisappears, it has a negative impact on everything elseECOSYSTEM

Spider are air-breathing arthropods that have eightlegs and chelicerae with fangs that inject venom.However, spiders are not considered as an insectbecause of its unique characteristic.Spiders have only two main body parts(cephalothoraz and abdomen).The body consists ofa combined head and thorax called thecephalothorax, and the abdomen. Thecephalothorax has the eyes, mouthparts (noantennae) and four pairs of legsAbdomen andCephalothoraz Fangs4 pairs oflegs
SPIDER HUNTSpiders are one of the most fascinating predatoryspecies of the animal world. Spiders belong to twocategories depending on the way in which theyhunt, although there are also those which use amixture of both methods.However, most hunting spiders hunt by simplyrushing their prey and inflicting a poisonous by fangand usually fatal bite. If the prey is large, then thespider may retreat and give the venom time toweaken it, thereby decreasing the risk of them beinginjured while trying to subdue it. If the prey is smallenough, then a spider will often simply hold on to iton web until it is dead…. and very often consumes iton the spot.Good eyesight(Help to spotvictims at longdistanceWeb(Used totrap thepreyVenom(Immobilizeand weakenprey)
The life cycle of a spider beginswhen a spider hatches fromthe eggs. Once hatched thebaby spider will be able to spinits own web and capture itsown food and this will comenaturally. As it grows it willperiodically shed its ownskeleton and thus become anadult.Egg sacSpiderlingsSpiderEgg sacSpiderlingsSpider
Brown recluse spiderbite after only nine daysBrown reclusespider bite afteronly nine daysBrown reclusespider bite on leg• Spiders bite in self-defense.Most spider bites, areharmless, and require nospecific treatment but thereare some serious cases though.•Only spiders of fairly largespecies possess chelicera longenough to penetrate humanskin, and most of those arefemales.The effect of a bite onhumans is dependent on boththe toxicity of the venom andthe amount of venom.
Step 2With its special claws, hook and barbed hairsattached to its legs, the spider walks up and downthis frame as it lays more frame threads betweenvarious anchor points. Then, it starts laying outradius threads from the center to the boundary ofthe frames. These radial threads are not coatedwith sticky material, since the spider needs towalk across them to get around.Step 1It begins with a single thread with formsthe basis of the overall structure, andproceeds by constructing a bridge. Forthis, it climbs to a suitable starting point(up a tree branch, for example), andreleases a length of thread into the wind.As the free end catches another support(branch, say), it walks across it andcompletes the bridge. The spider thenreleases a looser thread below the firstone and slowly climbs to its center.
Step 3 & Step 4After the radius threads are complete, thespider lays out a non-stick auxiliary spiral fromthe centre to the outer edge as a support, itthen lays out a deadly spiral web..The spider is now ready to hunt. It sits in themiddle of its web, monitoring the radius threadsfor vibrations.This happens the moment aninsect gets caught in any part of the web.Thespider feels the motion and briskly makes itsway to the vibration sourceStep 5After paralyzing the prey, spiders usuallywrap them up in silk and carry themback to their nest, to be eaten in leisure.However, most spiders don’t eat theirprey whole. Instead, they liquefy itsentrails by injecting it with digestiveenzymes, and suck up the liquefiedmatter later, leaving the outer skeletonintact.
Caribbean, Central America, MexicoOrigin of the Pineapple• Historians believe that the pineappleoriginated in Southern Brazil and Paraguay.The natives of southern Brazil and Paraguayspread the pineapple throughout SouthAmerica, and it eventually reached theCaribbean, Central America and Mexico•Columbus encountered the pineapple inNovember 1493 on the Leeward island ofGuadeloupe. He called it piña deIndes, meaning "pine of the Indians, andbrought it back with him to Europethusmaking the pineapple the first bromeliad toleave the NewWorld•They imported the fruit and cultivated it inhot houses. Members of European royalfamilies soon developed a liking for it. Itgradually became available to the rich, thenoble and the elite.ChristopherColumbuspiña de IndesNovember 1493Sailed toEurope
SeedsPlant pineapple seeds in well-drained soil that is keptmoist by frequent watering and mistingSlipsPinch them and plant them in the ground at a depthof 3 to 6 inches. Use loamy but well-draining, moistsoil and provide the new planting with an average of8 hours of sunlight per daySuckersProduce a new pineapple from a sucker by cutting itcarefully from the base stalk and planting it 3 to 6inches into moist, loamy soil that drains well.CrownsCut the crown and soak it in water for 1 to 2 days toabsorb water before planting.After soaking, placethe crown on top of loamy soil in a gallon containerand cover it with compost to retain moisture.
