The Success of Insects

Question Topic : The Earth’s largest phylum is Arthropoda, including centipedes, millipedes, crustaceans, and insects. The insects have shown to be a particularly successful class within the phylum. What biological characteristics have contributed to the success of insects? In many science fiction scenarios, post Answer The Success of Insects Insects are some of the most successful organisms on the planet. There are a number of factors which have contributed to insects’ success on earth. Of the factors is because insects are adapted to live in different types of habitats. Insects are widely distributed on earth (Beerling, 2007). They are able to live across different ecosystems such as deserts, hot springs, tropical rain forests, arctic habitats and among others. Insects have a high reproductive capacity. Most insects are able to give a large number of offspring within a short period. This increases their numbers. Their relatively small size also contributes to their success. The small size means that they require less energy and also the...

Organisms in the Domains Bacteria and Archaea

Question Discuss the similarities and differences between organisms in the domains Bacteria and Archaea Answer Organisms in the Domains Bacteria and Archaea Archaea were formerly classified as bacteria with the name archaebacteria due to a number of similarities between them and bacteria. It is only after careful studies that scientists discovered the distinct biochemistry and evolutionary history between them (Pommerville, 2014). There are a number of similarities between archaea and bacteria. To start with, archaea and bacteria have basically the same size, shape and appearance. Secondly, both of the organisms multiply through binary fission which is a form of asexual reproduction. Thirdly, the primary means by which both organisms move is through the use of flagella. Fourthly, both are classified as prokaryotes since they lack a complex cell structure common among eukaryotes. Lastly, they both contain semi-permeable cell membranes that allow selective movement of elements or substances through them (Pommerville, 2014). There are a number of differences found between archaea and bacteria that sets them...

Genetic Drift

Genetic Drift   Genetic drift is the change or fluctuations that occur in gene variants in a particular population (Jacquez, 2015). Genetic drift occurs when variant genes known as alleles change in number, either decreasing or increasing over time by chance. Genetic drift occurs in two types: the bottle neck effect and the founder effect. The bottle neck effect is observed when a large percentage of a particular population is decimated mostly through a natural disaster such as floods or fire. The natural disaster only leaves a few of the species to reproduce. The population left is not representative of the previous genetic makeup of the original population. A bottle neck effect can be seen when natural disasters decimate a large part of the population (Jacquez, 2015). For example, a fire outbreak in a forest may kill over 95 percent of beetles and leave the rest which begin to reproduce. The 5 percent of the beetles left could be having a different genetic...

DNA and RNA

DNA and RNA DNA and RNA are similar in a number of ways. Both of them are made up of pyrimidine and purine nitrogenous bases, a single radical of benzoic acid and a pentose molecule (Richards & Hawley, 2010). In both the DNA and RNA, the bases are connected in series in a backbone that holds them in place. During base pairing, both follows the same rules with the exemption being that RNA pairs the bases A and U. DNA and RNA are also different in some ways. DNA pairs the bases A with T, while RNA pairs A and U. Another visible difference is that RNA contains temporary information while DNA is a permanent record of genetic information. RNA is used to carry information to ribosome and eventually becomes degraded after it fulfills its function in the cells. Both have structural differences in that DNA mostly occurs as double stranded while the RNA contains single strands (Richards & Hawley, 2010). Humans...

MGT496: Strategic Warehouse Management (CLP1547A)

Question Strategic Warehouse Management, Inc. (SWM) is a U.S. based warehousing organization in the construction and management of warehouse operations. The CEO’s market development team has determined that there is an opportunity to open a warehouse in Australia that could serve multiple businesses. The CEO plans to open a “non-resident company” (Land and Tax News, 2012). The CEO has also decided that the warehouse can be opened in any city in Australia. Some clients in Australia have also asked SWM to manage the flow of goods from Australia to U.S. locations. The CEO wants to get a preliminary plan developed as soon as possible before going further. The CEO asked you to design a supply chain that includes warehouse operations in any city in Australia. In addition, the CEO has a number of items he’d like to see you cover in the report. He has asked you to: Develop requirements for the warehouse design and to provide an organization structure to manage the...

Design thinking

Question Think about a day-to-day challenge YOU face such as your commute to school, maybe the arrangement of your apartment, or managing a daily task. Using the 7-steps of Design thinking, explain how YOU plan on solving this problem in a concise but comprehensive essay:How do you 1.Define the issue? What did your 2.Research show? With whom did you 3.Brainstorm? How did you 4.Prototype the solution. During 5.Review, did your prototype address the problem? What happened during 6.Implementation? What did you 7.Learn? Answer Design thinking Question 1 Commuting from home to school and from school to home has been a nightmare for most children myself included. Depending on the distance between school and home different children have different tales why commuting has been an issue. Insecurity and tiredness have been the main issues affecting commuting to and from school this prompting them to dislike the schooling idea. Question 2 Research shows that two in every fifteen young children have to walk to and from school either because...

Case Study: Power, Rights, and Interests

Case Study: Power, Rights, and Interests Natural Tendencies Normally when conflicts arise, people are surprised and unsure of how to deal with the situation. The natural tendencies are not the best or healthiest options for handling conflict.  This is because they do not encourage clear communication which is the best way to find a mutually beneficial solution. Tina tried to use emotions and psychological defense to justify her actions. Tina’s habit of being rude to customers was getting out of hand and she clearly pushed things too far with Maria. Joe had given her more than enough chances to change but she didn’t. Even though she deserved the three day suspension, she used the emotional card so that she could get out of suspension. She expected Joe to sympathize with her for having family troubles and call off the suspension.  However, this would not have ended the conflict because she would not have learnt her lesson. She would have continued to...
