In this unit, we describe the theory of evolution by natural selection as proposed by Charles Darwin in his book, first published in 1859, On The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. We will look at natural selection as Darwin did, taking inheritance for granted, but ignoring the mechanisms underlying it.

Mutualistic relationships in nature
Many organisms depend on other organisms for survival. Mutualism is when two organisms have a relationship in nature and each benefits from the relationship. Pollination and lichens are the best examples of mutualism.
Images of Earth and Space: SC99 Edition
From our home planet to distant neutron stars, this narrated videotape presents recent scientific visualizations of observation and simulation data. We begin with a dramatic journey over SC99 host city Portland and its surroundings. Later explorations accompany the X-33 aerospace plane on its first test flight, witness Mississippi River flooding, and follow global life over 22 months. New views of Mars reveal a basin that could swallow Mount Everest, while a simulation tests how rovers would nav

4.3 What about communities? The last activity looked at the key roles from the perspective of Lynne and Arthur as individuals, but in fact it also says that working with ‘families, carers, groups and communities’ is necessary. Do you think that Dev should also be taking account of the Durrants as a family, as carers and as members of a community? Dev's role in assessing Arthur's needs means that he should also take account of his family circumstances, in other words, Lynne and perhaps her sister. Lynne also has

Graduation 2012 - Monday July 23: Carnegie Faculty, 2pm Ceremony
Coverage of the School of Events, Tourism and Hospitality graduation ceremony.
The purpose of this activity is to observe the type and cover of clouds including contrails. Students observe which of ten types of clouds and how many of three types of contrails are visible and how much of the sky is covered by clouds (other than contrails) and how much is covered by contrails. Intended outcomes are that students learn how to make estimates from observations and how to categorize specific clouds following general descriptions for the categories. They will learn the meteorologi
4.2 Data for identification

Mitochondria and Metabolism in Honeybee Flight Muscle
Honeybees provide a convenient source of insect flight muscle, a tissue especially rich in mitochondria. These organelles are easily isolated using simple laboratory equipment and their metabolic activity readily measured colorimetrically with the dye 2,6-dichloroindophenol, which changes from blue to colorless when reduced by the electrons produced during respiration. This system is well-suited for studying cell fractionation, experimental isolation of the major subcellular components responsib
