Mitosis Continuamos con el tema de las Animaciones, esa vez con unas de la mejores que he visto sobre Biología Celular , donde se incluyen temas desde la Anatomía de la Célula, Estructura de los Cromosomas, ADN, Ciclo de Krebs, Fotosíntesis, etc. y mis favoritas las de Mitosis y Meiosis. Lo único malo es que cuentan con Copyright a nombre de John Kirk y que solo pueden mostrarse o reproducirse en su sitio Web; por eso solo muestro algunas imágenes; lo bueno es que son muy accesibles y vienen en 6 idiomas.

Evolution in Action: Lizard Moving From Eggs to Live Birth Evolution has been caught in the act, according to scientists who are decoding how a species of Australian lizard is abandoning egg-laying in favor of live birth. Along the warm coastal lowlands of New South Wales (map), the yellow-bellied three-toed skink lays eggs to reproduce. But individuals of the same species living in the state's higher, colder mountains are almost all giving birth to live young. Only two other modern reptiles—another skink species and a European lizard—use both types of reproduction. Evolutionary records shows that nearly a hundred reptile lineages have independently made the transition from egg-laying to live birth in the past, and today about 20 percent of all living snakes and lizards give birth to live young only. But modern reptiles that have live young provide only a single snapshot on a long evolutionary time line, said study co-author James Stewart, a biologist at East Tennessee State University.

Erbe medicinali Serious Games Bring Immersive Astronomy To Science Classrooms | FUTURE-MAKING SERIOUS GAMES Serious Games for a high tech space-simulation experience Via: Edutopia - Virtual Universe: Students Use Technology to Reach for the Stars by Bilen Mesfin Full Article Remote telescopes, desktop planetariums, and 3-D space-simulation programs launch classrooms into space Frank Gregorio's astronomy course is the most popular science elective at Osburn Park High School, in Manassas, Virginia. Gregorio has created comprehensive activities that guide students through Celestia's three-dimensional simulated universe, letting them observe the life cycle of stars, hurtle into the future to see Mars terraformed and the Sun swell, and travel four billion years back in time to witness the formation of the moon -- all at their own pace. Celestia enables Gregorio to transform his class "from a room with a teacher, some videos, and a blackboard into a high tech space-simulation experience far more exciting than anything these kids have ever experienced in a school," he says.

Evolutionary psychology Evolutionary psychology (EP) is an approach in the social and natural sciences that examines psychological traits such as memory, perception, and language from a modern evolutionary perspective. It seeks to identify which human psychological traits are evolved adaptations – that is, the functional products of natural selection or sexual selection. Adaptationist thinking about physiological mechanisms, such as the heart, lungs, and immune system, is common in evolutionary biology. Some evolutionary psychologists apply the same thinking to psychology, arguing that the mind has a modular structure similar to that of the body, with different modular adaptations serving different functions. Evolutionary psychologists argue that much of human behavior is the output of psychological adaptations that evolved to solve recurrent problems in human ancestral environments.[1] The adaptationist approach is steadily increasing as an influence in the general field of psychology.[2][3] Scope[edit]

Mathematical and theoretical biology Mathematical and theoretical biology is an interdisciplinary scientific research field with a range of applications in biology, biotechnology, and medicine.[1] The field may be referred to as mathematical biology or biomathematics to stress the mathematical side, or as theoretical biology to stress the biological side.[2] It includes at least four major subfields: biological mathematical modeling, relational biology/complex systems biology (CSB), bioinformatics and computational biomodeling/biocomputing. Mathematical biology aims at the mathematical representation, treatment and modeling of biological processes, using a variety of applied mathematical techniques and tools. It has both theoretical and practical applications in biological, biomedical and biotechnology research. For example, in cell biology, protein interactions are often represented as "cartoon" models, which, although easy to visualize, do not accurately describe the systems studied. Importance[edit]

Tavola periodica interattiva, descrizione aanche audio dei singoli elementi e video Lanthanum: the essentials Lanthanum is silvery white, malleable, ductile, and soft enough to be cut with a knife. It is one of the most reactive of the rare-earth metals. It oxidises rapidly when exposed to air. Cold water attacks lanthanum slowly, and hot water attacks it much more rapidly. Lanthanum: historical information Lanthanum was discovered by Carl Gustaf Mosander at 1839 in Sweden. Carl Gustav Mosander recognized the element lanthanum in impure cerium nitrate in 1839. Lanthanum: physical properties Melting point: 1193 [or 920 °C (1688 °F)] KBoiling point: 3743 [or 3470 °C (6278 °F)] KDensity of solid: 6146 kg m-3 Read more » » Lanthanum: orbital properties Read more » » Isolation Isolation: lanthanum metal is available commercially so it is not normally necessary to make it in the laboratory, which is just as well as it is difficult to separate it from as the pure metal. Pure lanthanum is available through the reduction of LaF3 with calcium metal. 2LaF3 + 3Ca → 2La + 3CaF2
