and meiosis are simply cell division processes that occurs differently, they're characteristically divergent from each other according to their function and structure. Mitosis is the cell division that happens in all cells in the human body except sperm and egg cells. They produce diploid cells. Meiosis on the other hand is responsible for the cell division of the gametes, spermatogenesis (sperm cells) and oogenesis (egg cells), such haploid cells.

I need help with five multiple choice marine science questions. 1)When severe weather damages the plant life in an ecosystem, what effects might this have on other organisms in the same ecosystem? a)- Other organisms could starve or have to leave the area if they depend on the plants as food. b) -Other organisms could change their behavior to take the place of the plants in the ecosystem. c )-Other organisms would not be affected. d )-Other organisms could replace the plant energy with radiant energy from the sun. 2)As the climate changes, the average ocean temperature is rising. Using this information, predict what will most likely happen to El Niño events in the future. a)-El Niño events will intensify because they rely on warmer water sinking to the seafloor. b)-El Niño events will intensify because they will build on the already warm waters at the equator. c)-Some El Niño events will be stronger, but most will be weaker because the ocean currents are unpredictable. d)-El Niño events will become more similar to La Niña events and establish a new weather pattern. 3)Which of the following examples is the most likely way severe weather can negatively affect the biodiversity of a marine ecosystem? a)-A severe thunderstorm brings rain and wind to an intertidal zone. b)-A storm surge from a hurricane floods a coastal area. c)-A tornado causes a waterspout. d)-A blizzard adds snow and ice to an arctic glacier. 4)El Niño events are characterized by warmer than normal ocean temperatures near the equator in the Pacific Ocean. Which weather events are most likely to occur as a result? a)- Increased rainfall across the eastern Pacific Ocean b)-Decreased flooding across the eastern Pacific Ocean c)-Drought along the South American Pacific coastline d)-Colder winter along the South American Pacific coastline 5)According to the Severe Weather Activity worksheet, El Niño events most likely occurred during which of the following years? a)-2006 and 2015 b)-1997, 2006, and 2015 c)-1997 and 2015 d)-1997 and 2006

1. The answer is A. The eradication of plants in an ecosystem would devastate the food web in the habitat. This is because plants are primary producers and significant as conduits of energy into a food web. Plants convert radiant energy from the sun to biomass through photosynthesis. This energy then transferred up the food chain through various form of interaction such as predation.

2. The answer is B. Global warming causes water at the equator to be even warmer above normal temperatures. This fans the upwelling of cold water from below the ocean floor and causes an even greater disparity of temperatures across the Pacific ocean. This subsequently fans the trade winds hence warming the air even more and causing severe storms.

3. The answer is B. The flooding of the coastal area due to hurricanes destroys the biodiversity of the ecosystem by physically destroying the habitat and by drowning organisms such as affecting a whole species population. This upsets the balance of the ecosystem and makes it prone to even further deterioration.

4. The answer is A. When the surface ocean waters at the Pacific ocean warm at the equator, there is an upwelling of cooler ocean waters from the bottom of the ocean., The warm currents along with trade move towards the east and met the South American coastline where they bring in heavy rainfall. Conversely, the northwestern region of the Pacific experiences drought.

5. The answer is C. Elnino and La Nina occurs at a frequency of approximately two(2) to seven (7) years. The phenomenon usually lasts nine (9) to twelve (12) months. El Ninos are more frequent than La Ninas. Their peak effect is usually felt around December and January. The strongest El Nino was the one that occurred in 1997.

Suppose that a when a cell phone store charges 16$ for a car charger, it sells 92 units. When it drops the price to 15$ it sells 96 units. Assume that demand is a linear function of price. If each phone charger costs 1$ to make, what price should the store charge to maximize its profit? If x is the number of times the price is reduced by one dollar. Find a function for total profit with respect to x. A negative value for x will mean the price is increased. ...?

A group of hikers find a fallen tree in a forest. The dead tree trunk is covered by mushrooms and other fungus. Later, they find a wild apple tree with many apples lying on the forest floor beneath the tree. The apples are all rotten and decayed by bacteria. Which statement BEST summarizes how these fungus and bacteria organisms are obtaining their food energy? A) The fungus and bacteria are both parasitic organisms that obtain food from other living organisms. B) The fungus and bacteria are both obtaining their energy by manufacturing food from minerals and sunlight. C) Both fungus and bacteria require well-fertilized soil in which to obtain nutrients needed for chemosynthesis. D) The fungus and bacteria organisms are obtaining the energy they need by decomposing organic matter like dead trees and old apples. Eliminate

Answer: D. The fungus and bacteria organisms are obtaining the energy they need by decomposing organic matter like dead trees and old apples.

Fungi is the primary decomposer of biological waste in forest ecosystem. Fungi grows on the branching network of hyphae which provide it more penetration potential towards the litter. Wood decaying fungi has enzymes required for decomposition of lignin, a chemical substance found in wood. Fungi decompose organic matter by releasing enzymes which breaks down the decaying matter, after that they absorb the nutrients in the decaying material. The left residue in the organic matter includes sugars and amino acids are degraded and decomposed by the bacteria.

The answer is Reaction To Pheromones


This is not an example of intracellular communication because Airborne molecules that elicit a reaction in a member of the same species are called pheromones, and the most famous ones are potent aphrodisiacs, like androstenone and androstenol in the saliva of male boars.

Explain how the inside of a cell remains separate from its environment

     Well, first, we need to know the structures of a cell to answer this question properly.

      As you may know, a cell contains lots of different structures with different functions, for example, a ribosome, it is an organelle that makes protein for your body. The inside of a cell is separated then by a plasma membrane made out of phospholipids, it protects the inside of a cell by deciding what gets in and what gets out through proteins attached to it and vesicles. The inside of a cell must be always separated from its environment because of the difference in pH levels most of the times, or even to maintain its functions working properly without outside influences.

True or False: If the prefix "iso" means the same, there is no change in the cell (egg).




We are given that the prefix ''iso'' means the same .

Iso mean  equal , there is no change in the cell .

For example iso-gametes

It means the gametes are same .All gametes are same and are not different with each other.

Isomer : It means that the compound which have same molecular formula but different structural formula .

Therefore, we can say that iso mean same or equal or identical or  like or similar .

Hence, the given statement is true.

What is the end result of mitosis and cytokinesis? why is this so important?

The end result of mitosis is a cell that is exactly the same as the original cell. So, if you have Cell A and cell A goes through mitosis and produces cell B... Cell B is an exact clone/replica of cell A with NO VARIATIONS. It's literally like cloning (Asexual reproduction).

Cytokinesis is part of the cell cycle, it is the last stage where a plate forms between both the cells to separate them from each other and to form two individual cells. 

Mitosis is important because it is a fast way of producing replicas of cells. Cytokinesis is important to differentiate or create boundaries between the cells.
