Science experiment on soil erosion – Lapappadolce.

Science experiment on soil erosion – This experiment, which has a tremendous visual impact due to its simplicity, it will demonstrate the relationship between precipitation, soil erosion, protection of watercourses and vegetation. A very simple experiment that stresses the importance of the vegetation cover of the soil. You can propose in three versions: – Preparing the planting of seedlings – Using plants ready to be transplanted – Using soil samples. Science experiment on soil erosion – First version Prepare three identical plastic bottles, cut as shown in the pictures and put them on a flat surface (I’ve stuck with the hot glue on a tablet of plywood): the opening of the three bottles should protrude a little out of the surface.

Put in each bottle the same amount of ground and press hard to pack as much as possible. Cut the bottom of other three bottles of transparent plastic, and make two holes for the string. Then put the cap on the first bottle in which to plant the seeds: Bio Films. All Topics. Bioscope. Bioman Biology: The Fun Place to Learn Biology! Corinth Micro Plant.

ICT in Biology Teaching. Human body. The entire structure of a human being The study of the human body involves anatomy, physiology, histology and embryology. The body varies anatomically in known ways. Physiology focuses on the systems and organs of the human body and their functions. Many systems and mechanisms interact in order to maintain homeostasis, with safe levels of substances such as sugar and oxygen in the blood.

The body is studied by health professionals, physiologists, anatomists, and by artists to assist them in their work. Composition[edit] Elements of the human body by mass. The human body is composed of elements including hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, calcium and phosphorus.[1] These elements reside in trillions of cells and non-cellular components of the body. The adult male body is about 60% water for a total water content of some 42 litres.

The wacky history of cell theory - Lauren Royal-Woods | TED-Ed. Ms. Ross  Life Science - Home. Why do blood types matter? - Natalie S. Hodge. As with most topics in human genetics, blood type is more complicated than it appears on the surface. There are other human blood groups that are less common than the ABO blood group. For example, the Bombay Phenotype is a recessive condition in which the precursor of the A or B antigen, the H antigen, is not made. It occurs in about 1 in 10,000 people in India and 1 in million people in Europe. Even though someone inherits the alleles for an A or a B antigen, they can’t make these antigens if they don’t have the instructions on HOW to make them.
