What is a theory? What are some different theories of evolution? These questions and many more will be answered in this paper. This paper includes some amazing facts. People once believed that maggots (a fly-like insect) came from rotten meat, not from their parents like all animals do. Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace came up similar theories on Natural Selection (a theory that is explained later in this paper) at around the same time, but Darwin?s theory is more commonly heard of. Also,

In this assesment the student will identify the chareracteristics and roles of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids in a living system. Write a 4 paragraph report describing the atoms in the compound building blocks, types, structure, and function of each. The student must also describe what they would do if they were given a jar with an unknown substance to find out wether or not it contained any of the substances listed above. Proteins: Proteins are long chains of amino acids

Leukemia Leukemia is a disease characterized by the formation of abnormal numbers of white blood cells, for which no certain cure has been found. Leukemia is also conditions characterized by the transformation of normal blood-forming cells into abnormal white blood cells whose unrestrained growth overwhelms and replaces normal bone marrow and blood cells. Leukemias are named according to the normal cell from which they originate, such as Lymphocyte Le

Perhaps no single instrument has advanced man's understanding of the surrounding world more than the microscope. Scientific discoveries made through microscopic techniques are too numerous to list. The microscope revolutionized the study of biology, medicine, and many other fields of scientific research. Basic Principles Light microscopes use convex (converging) lenses. The way a lens magnifies an object depends on where its placement relative to the focal point of the lens. If the obj

Entomology is the study of insects, involving their biology and control in relation to their environment and to man. Entomology also had an independent scientific discipline which had roots in biology. Some entomologists are involved in reducing harmful species of insects that destroy food, housing, plants, and clothing and cause discomfort and disease to humans, livestock and household pets. Others develop ways to increase growth rate and spread the insects that provide food, polli

Charles Darwin Like many students, Charles Darwin was only intrested in topics that was intresting to him and although his father was a doctor, Darwin was very unintrested in medicine and he also couldnt stand the sight of surgery. He did eventually get a degree in Theology from Cambridge University, Although Theology was a minor intrest to him. What Darwin really liked to do was climb over hills, observe plants and animals, collecting new specimens, studying their structur

John James Audubon John James Audubon was born in 1785 Santo Domingo, which is now Haiti. After arriving in America in 1803, he began the extensive ornithological observations. Ornithology is the branch of zoology that deals with the study of birds. These studies would later lead to the publication of his bird drawings and paintings. His published collection, The Birds of America, was a collection of these works. It is considered a classic work of ornithological and American art. Th

Biology/Sociology One in a Million DNA fingerprinting (the use of a person s DNA to identify them) has become a hot topic in the field of law enforcement as well as the entire world. The controversy exists on whether or not it should be admitted in court as evidence at this time. Some experts believe that the present technology allows DNA fingerprinting to be used in cases for positive identification (proof that the DNA match was at the scene of the crime) because of the extreme unlikeness t
