Specifically, it covers: why plants have their own kingdom, Plantae; what separates the kingdom's two very basic categories; the plant kingdom's 10 divisions, including the number of species in each; and why some organisms that seem like plants belong instead to the kingdom Protista or the kingdom Fungi.

Experimentación en Biotecnología I (Grado en Biotecnología)
El objetivo general de la asignatura es el estudio termodinámico, desde un punto de vista experimental, de las disoluciones no ideales de electrolitos. En particular, se pretende estudiar la influencia de las sales disueltas en el agua de mar en las reacciones químicas que tienen lugar en ella. Para ello se presentan dos entornos de trabajo: uno centrado en un equilibrio heterogéneo (reacción de precipitación) y otro en uno homogéneo (reacción de formación de un complejo). La metodologí

Econometría
La econometr√≠a se ha convertido en una herramienta fundamental en el an√°lisis econ√≥mico.

9.6.2 Adapt your strategy to overcome difficulties and produce the quality of outcomes required

When you begin to put everything together you may realise you need to go back and find out about things you had not initially considered or just take more time to get things set up. Going backwards and forwards through the stages like this is quite usual, and for complex work or assignments you may need to build in extra time for it.

Use the group to help you identify the reasons for any difficulties and consider the effect of any changes in circumstances, such as availability of resour

Introduction

The scientific theory of plate tectonics suggests that at least some of these Arctic lands were once tropical. Since then the continents have moved and ice has changed the landscape. This unit will concentrate on evidence from the last 800,000 years using information collected from ice cores from Greenland and Antarctica, and will use this evidence to discuss current and possible future climate. The cores show that there have been nine periods in the recent past when large areas of the Earth
