Behavioral Genetics (Mendelian): Sanitary Bees - Animal Behavior
This course covers the principles of biology as they relate to animal behavior, with broad coverage of animal groups. Special attention will be paid to the emerging discipline of behavioral ecology.
Some animals are capable of concealing themselves against their surroundings. The patterns, colors, or behaviors they show that help them accomplish this are called camouflage.
Objects appear to be certain colors because of reflection and absorbance. Light is made up of different wavelengths that our eyes detect and convert into colors. The apple looks green because it reflects the wavelengths that correspond to the color we see as green. The apple absorbs all other wavelengths of light.

9 Sedimentation at the end of the Caledonian Orgeny; Section 10 Legacy
Some of Britain’s most dramatic scenery is to be found in the Scottish Highlands. The sight of mighty Ben Nevis, the desolate plateau of the Cairngorms, or the imposing landscapes of Glen Coe can unleash the call of the wild in all of us. Although these landforms were largely carved by glacial activity that ended some 10,000 years ago, the rocks themselves tell of a much older history. The Highlands are merely eroded stumps of a much higher range of ancient mountains. This unit is an account o
