Animal Behavior Experiments Using Arthropods
This exercise is designed to familiarize the student with ethology, the study of animal behavior, by observing the behavior of several different arthropods.
The Adventures of George Amato, "DNA Detective"
This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they see how DNA is used to solve crimes against animals. The activity starts with an introduction to George Amato, an AMNH scientist who sometimes helps the U.S. government solve mysteries. In a three-part online slide show, students see how Amato earned the title "DNA Detective" in 1993 when he helped the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service catch someone trying to sneak protected re

Realization of FIR and IIR systems and parasitic effects, robust digital filters, multirate signal processing(sampling rate alteration), filter banks, wavelets, adaptive filters, digital signal processors, etc.
Engineering for the Three Little Pigs
The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate the importance of rocks, soils and minerals in engineering and how using the right material for the right job is important. The students build three different sand castles and test them for strength and resistance to weathering. Then, they discuss how the buildings are different and what engineers need to think about when using rocks, soils and minerals for construction.
Cerebellar Degeneration - Reflexes Exam - Abnormal (Pathological) Sub-exam - Patient 3
This 42-year-old man complains of poor balance and frequent falls for 6 years. Imbalance has been progressive; he cannot ambulate independently at present. He experiences tremors and weakness. Imbalance has been progressive and he now cannot ambulate independently. He is in good general health except for heavy alcohol use. For the last 10 years, he has consumed a quart of vodka and 5 beers daily. On awakening, he feels "shaky" and calms himself with a morning drink. He has not had blackouts or
Parkinson Disease - Reflexes Exam - Frontal (Release) Signs Sub-exam - Patient 4
This 76-year-old man developed tremor of his right arm and leg 15 years ago. It has increased in severity over the years. A shaking right hand affects his writing, dressing and drinking. Occasional drooling, difficulty rolling over in bed and a soft voice at times are also issues. The tremor has affected his writing and he has mild difficulty with buttons and zippers. He spills when he uses his right hand to drink. He has occasional drooling and slight difficulty rolling over in bed. His voice
1.5.1 Rhetoric and rigour
Are you about to undertake a PhD in science, technology or mathematics? If so, this unit will help you to examine your work processes. You will consider and develop the nature of postgraduate work and look at the planning of work needed at doctoral level.
In this unit you will see first how to convert vectors from geometric form, in terms of a magnitude and direction, to component form, and then how conversion in the opposite sense is accomplished. The ability to convert between these different forms of a vector is useful in certain problems involving displacement and velocity, as shown in Section 2, in which you will also work with bearings.

After reading To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee write a definition of a classic, in the literary sense. What makes a book a "classic?"
A plant community can be sampled using a "wandering quarter" survey, a plotless survey method that requires no set-up and minimal equipment. Participants zig-zag from tree to tree, always heading in the same general compass direction. Data collected can be used to calculate several common measures of plant community structure, including species richness, species diversity, relative basal area, stems per hectare, relative dominance, and importance value. Hypotheses about the effect of various abi

Students investigate motors and electromagnets as they construct their own simple electric motors using batteries, magnets, paper clips and wire.
Description not set
Collaboration is a key requirement in several contemporary interventional radiology procedures (IRPs). This work proposes a multicast hybrid satellite system capable of supporting advanced IRP collaboration, and evaluates its feasibility and applicability. Following a detailed IRP requirements study, we have developed a system which supports IRP collaboration through the employment of a hybrid satellite-terrestrial network, a prototype multicast version of wavelet based interactive communication
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.
This turtle has a back full of green, mossy algae. When the turtle is stationary in the water, it can camouflage itself to look like a moss-covered rock.
