BIOL Aquatic Biology Aquatic Biology provides a working knowledge of the general biology and ecology of aquatic systems and of the organisms that make up aquatic communities. Heavy metal sensitivity and bioconcentration in oribatid mites Acari, Oribatida : Gradient study in meadow ecosystems.
This is referred to as environmental sex determination, or more specifically, as temperature-dependent sex determination.
Just like host defense mechanisms i. Electives in Biology fall into one of two categories: processes within organisms A and processes among individuals Bsee course catalog for listings; that represent levels of organization from molecules and cells to evolutionary and population thinking, and emphasize different types of questioning within biology.
Students are given an opportunity to both examine microbes from the traditional vantage of microscopes and colonies, and enter the current conversation on and techniques using microorganisms. Comparative oncology approaches could also provide in depth analyses of the difference in anticancer defenses between recent and ancient asexual species, as well as in comparison with their sexual relatives.
Have you thought about the fact that there is a genetic basis from which dispersal occurs? In the laboratory for the course, students will acquire the wet lab skills necessary for genomic data collection, use next-generation sequencing technology to sequence billions of base pairs of DNA, and gain the bioinformatics examples of organisms that reproduce asexually and sexually in Hobart necessary to process, characterize, and analyze genomic data.
However, in the animal kingdom, there are many variations on this theme. Bees use parthenogenesis to produce haploid males drones and diploid females workers.
Sex determination in some crocodiles and turtles, for example, is often dependent on the temperature during critical periods of egg development. Why do organisms and cells exhibit this behavior, and how is it controlled?
BIOL Biology Seminar The biology seminar is intended as a capstone experience that integrates knowledge learned in previous biology courses. BIOL Evolution Evolution is often referred to as the great unifying principle of all the biological sciences.
