Virtual Fetal Pig Dissection Welcome to the Whitman College Biology Department's Virtual Pig Dissection (VPD)! This site is designed as a supplement to laboratory dissections exploring introductory mammalian anatomy and physiology — it is basic and many details have been omitted for clarity. We hope that it is suitable for AP Biology students or for students of introductory anatomy and physiology at the college level. We have revised this site to improve the learning experience and accessibility. Please see the "About" page for more details and contact information.

Pascaline On your bike: how muscles respond to exercise We all know that exercise makes us fitter and healthier – but what changes take place in our cells to make this happen? Next time you are working out in the gym, or pounding the streets running or jogging, ponder this: the idea of ‘muscle memory’ – that today’s exercise has effects on our muscles years from now – has never been demonstrated scientifically. Does it really exist, and if so, how does it work? These are some of the questions we hope to answer in our on-going research, which aims to pin down the changes that occur in muscles when we exercise, and how our muscles ‘know’ to respond differently to, say, endurance training as opposed to strength training. Helping us to investigate these questions is a large team of volunteers.
Weather New Englanders have a saying: "If you don't like the weather, just wait a minute." Weather forecasts may be more stable in other parts of the world, but the basic idea stands. Weather is dynamic, the product of interacting forces we are only beginning to understand. Witness the weather extremes caused by El Niño in 1997 and 1998. problème obésité : Persuasive Games -Fatworld (laura philippe) Fatworld is a game about the politics of nutrition.

Garbage If your habits resemble those of average Americans, you generate about 4.6 pounds of solid trash per day. This adds up to big trouble for the environment. Americans are generating waste products faster than nature can break them down and using up resources faster than they can be replaced. A Serious Game on Biodiversity in Wheat Farming April 28, 2014 A Serious Game on Biodiversity in Wheat Farming Lu, the leading French cookie manufacturer, further confirmed its desire to minimize the company’s impact on the environment by creating LU Harmony. This new wheat network, created in partnership with French farmers, favors biodiversity and guarantees quality wheat farming.
A History of Climate Science Skeptical Science takes a different approach to Naomi Oreskes' Science paper who sorted her papers into "explicit endorsement of the consensus position", "rejection of the consensus position" and everything else (neutral). In this case, the backbone of our site is our list of climate myths. Whenever a climate link is added to our database, it is matched to any relevant climate myths.
