About Me


I live on a farm, I raise pigs.I have 4 pigs, 4 cows, 2 dogs, 2 ducks, and 11 cats at the moment. I play soccer for the Punxsy Soccer Team. I play indoor soccer. I love to read books in my spare time. My favorite and best class is history.

Trees

Butternut (white Walnut)

Common Name: Butternut (white walnut)
Scientific Name: Juglans cinerea
Deciduous or Coniferous: Deciduous
Leaf Type: Compound Pinnate
Leaf Arrangement: Alternate
Commercial Use: It is used to dye homespun clothes light yellow or brown, and to make furniture because it is light in weight and highly rot resistant but is softer than black walnut.
Provides Habitat for: Animals
Organisms that infect the butternut: Fungus including Melancois juglandis/ Sirococcus clavigigneti-juglanacearum.
Provides food for: Humans and Animals.
Native to PA: Yes
Other info. : Endangered.

Black Walnut

Common Name:Black Walnut
Scientific Name:Juglans nigra
Deciduous or coniferous: Deciduous
Leaf Type: Compound
Leaf Arrangement: Alternate
Commercial Use: Dyes
Provides Habitat for: Moths
Organism that infect the black walnut: Small bugs
Provides food for: Animals
Native to PA: Yes
Other Info: the tallest Black Walnut is 112 Feet tall in Oregon

Marine Bacteria

The same way that you inhabit a messy room, H. butylicus doesn’t organize its cell contents. Like you, this microbe likes to lay low and is found on the “bottom bunk” of the ocean, near the sea floor.
And just as your extended family lives in a variety of different places, this microbe belongs to a family that occupies a broad range of habitats. H. butylicus thrives in waters of up to 112° C (234° F) and was discovered on the coast of the island of São Miguel, Azores!
a. How are the steps in the dichotomous key organized? The steps are organized to identify an organism.
b. What is the purpose of a dichotomous key? Its purpose is to help identify an organism by its characteristics.
c. What characteristics were used in the steps of the dichotomous key?
The characteristics used in the key were characteristic the human would have and related with bacteria.
d. Which bacteria are you most closely related to? Pyrodictium abyssi.
e. Which bacteria are you most different from? Emiliania huxleyi.

Evolution

Evolution is the change of inherited traits in an organism. The difference in results from interactions between processes that i troduce variation into population, and other ways that get rid of it. Some mechanisms and processes are adaptation, genetic drirft, gene flow, mutation, natural selection, and speciation.

Questions
1.There are no simple sugars in the Cannellini Bean, and there is starch, fat,and Proteins in the Bean.
There are starches, fat,and proteins in liver, and there are no Simple sugars though.

2.The results were correct.

3.I have learned that the Cannellini Bean has fat and proteins and support is on the charts above.

Catalase Questions
1.Liver The bean had strong reactions
2.Charts above.
3.

Chromatography Lab Conclusion

The Rf. values for the plant a was 1, .66, and .33. I think the bigger the leaf the smaller Rf value.
Some similarities and differences are that leaf size changes the Rf Value.
It also depends on what color is in the pigments.

Light Intensity Lab

I learned that if the light is bright and the wavelength low then maximum ATP is made.
The brighter the light the more ATP is made in photosynthesis.
The shorter the wavelength the more light is absorbed in photosynthesis.
Pigment colors are related to photosynthesis because it affects what color of light is absorbed and deflected.

Yeast Respiration Lab

Sugar Solution 10%
Radius 1.25 in.
Volume 12.27.
The independent varible is the sugar solution because it doesnt need anything else.
The dependent varible is the yeast because it needs the sugar.

DNA REPLICATION


Screen_shot_2011-02-24_at_8.21.29_AM.png
In Step 1 the helix unwinds. Step two at the split the original strands 1 and 2 then they are fitted with new strands that are copies of the original DNA Strand.
In DNA Replication the DNA is copied so that when the cell splits in meiosis that each of the cells have DNA to control its functions.

Class Traits

If you look at the numbers for a white forelock you may think it is recessive but it is a rare dominant trait. Our class results for no color blindness were everyone; nobody had colorblindness in the class that shows its recessive that it is.
The website shows that a bent pinky seems to be dominant our class that it would be recessive.
