MD BIOLOGY 101 Week 6 Bonus – Weird, Wild and Wacky Organisms
MD BIOLOGY 101 Week 6 Bonus – Weird, Wild and Wacky Organisms Week 6 Bonus – Weird, Wild and Wacky Organisms Earn up to 5 bonus points in the conferences this week by addressing the following. The living organisms that exist upon the earth exhibit a wide array of physical, chemical, and behavioral variation. Each feature of an organism is an adaptation acquired by that species through evolution, which uniquely suits an organism to survival within a given set of environmental conditions. Find an example of the weirdest, wildest, most bizarre or interesting species you can. Discuss those features that uniquely suit this organism to survival within a given set of environmental conditions. When considering the features of an organism, include its observable physical characteristics (which can be seen by the naked eye), as well as the molecular, metabolic, or chemical characteristics of the organism that can occur at the level of (or within) cells. You can draw examples from OLI or search the Web for the organism of your choice. If you can find it on the web, include a link to a picture or description of your organism. My only requirement is, with the huge diversity of organisms available, I do not expect to see the same organism twice. Include links or references if appropriate.
