Genetically engineered foods explained for young people

You may have heard that many foods (plants and animals) these days have questions around them, as to whether they have been grown naturally or have been manipulated in some way. These are genuine concerns as biotechnology has entered into new areas where DNAs of plants and animals have been combined to create new DNAs that never existed. It is VERY important to understand what DNA and Gene is.

DNA simply means Deoxyribonucleic Acid. Food chains and habitats - KS2 Science - BBC Bitesize. Food chain challenge - Savannah Explore the African savannah and find out how the animals and plants are connected in different food chains.

Did you know that within every single cell of your body, you store the blueprints to create an entirely new you—from scratch?

Genetics - Untamed Science

Those blueprints, called DNA, dictate everything about how to build our bodies, from how to make our toenails to how to wire our brains. The way we’re put together affects who we are and how we function and interact with the environment. Pretty impressive, huh? The study of DNA and genes is known as genetics. It’s one of the most recent fields of science to pop up on the map, starting around 200 years ago.

Science for Kids: World Biomes and Ecosystems

Each individual plant and animal could not exist by itself on planet Earth. All living organisms need millions of other living organisms to survive. How these organisms interact with the sun, soil, water, air and each other in a specific area is called an ecosystem. An ecosystem describes a specific area where the organisms work together as a unit. Biomes of the World.

What's a Biome? Here we see two different biomes—deserts on the left and grasslands on the right. But both are land environments. Blue Planet Biomes - World Biomes. What is a Biome? A biome is a large geographical area of distinctive plant and animal groups, which are adapted to that particular environment. The climate and geography of a region determines what type of biome can exist in that region. Major biomes include deserts, forests, grasslands, tundra, and several types of aquatic environments. Each biome consists of many ecosystems whose communities have adapted to the small differences in climate and the environment inside the biome. The World's Biomes. KDE Santa Barbara. Welcome to the Kids Do Ecology Biomes Pages! Aquatic Biomes | Terrestrial Biomes | GAMES! What are biomes? Biomes are regions of the world with similar climate (weather, temperature) animals and plants.

Conserving Habitats. What Is Habitat? - Habitat Types. Both the physical environment and the living community of plants, animals and other organisms determine an ecosystem. Each ecosystem has a characteristic physical environment, including its climate and altitude, which produces a dominant type of vegetation.
