3.5 Line graphs

To illustrate how to create and use line graphs, we will use the example of a calibration curve.

A calibration curve is a type of line graph in which the response of a measuring device to a series of known concentrations of a substance is plotted. You can then make a measurement of an unknown sample - in the case we're about to examine, blood serum samples from new-born infants - and use the calibration curve to work out what concentration of substance is present.

3.1 Agents of eutrophication

Light availability, water availability, temperature and the supply of plant nutrients are the four most important factors determining NPP. Altered availability of nutrients affects the rate of primary production in all ecosystems, which in turn changes the biomass and the species composition of communities.

2.9.1 The Humpty objection

The Humpty objection to the Gricean position can be formulated as the charge that Grice is too much like Humpty for his own good. Humpty, we saw, seems to be advocating the following thesis:

What we mean when we utter a word or sentence is under our own control; we can mean whatever we want and choose.

The charge against Grice can be formulated in a two-premise argument:

In this course we begin to look at the human being in the context of an individual life cycle, examining some of the processes that contribute to the formation of a new person. This is the first time that many of you will have encountered this level of biological detail; we would ask that you take the time to understand it fully at this stage. We hope to show you that, far from being a dry academic subject, the study of biology allows us to glimpse a dimension of dynamic sophistication and el

Introduction

Energy from sources other than fossil or nuclear fuels is to a large extent free of the concerns about environmental effects and renewability that characterise those two sources. Each alternative source supplies energy continually, whether or not we use it. Many alternative sources of energy have been used in simple ways for millennia, e.g. wind and water mills, sails, wood burning – but only in the last two centuries has their potential begun to be exploited on an industrial scale.

3.6.2 Exponential increase: bacteria

Bacteria are single-celled organisms. Many different types of bacteria exist and they populate almost every environment on earth, from deep oceans to soil to human intestines. Several bacteria are beneficial to us: for instance, our gut bacteria can help to break down foodstuffs that we would otherwise find difficult to digest. However, some bacteria produce harmful toxins and if they grow in an uncontrolled way in our bodies this can have serious health consequences.
