Online Books : "Golden Guide Hallucinogenic Plants" - pg 1-10

SMITH. GOLDEN PRESS - NEW YORK 1976 Western Publishing Company, Inc. .Scanning and html by loplop, Aug '99 Maintained by FOREWORD Hallucinogenic plants have been used by man for thousands of years, probably since he began gathering plants for food. The hallucinogens have continued to receive the attention of civilized man through the ages. Meet the diverse group of plant-eating dinosaurs that roamed Victoria 110 million years ago. During the Early Cretaceous period, 110 million to 107 million years ago, Australia was much further south than it is today.

Meet the diverse group of plant-eating dinosaurs that roamed Victoria 110 million years ago

Yet fossils from several sites on the Otway Coast in Victoria show dinosaurs were common in the region. The most abundant were ornithopods — small plant-eaters with beaks and cheeks full of teeth. But until recently, it was unclear exactly how many species coexisted at the same time. Anatomical Images: Free Human Anatomy Images and Pictures.

Carl Sagan Explains Evolution in an Eight-Minute Animation

But just as evolution itself produces a seemingly infinite variety of life forms, so the human understanding of evolution has produced countless educational and entertaining kinds of illustrations by which to explain it. In the video above, astronomer-astrophysicist-cosmologist Carl Sagan, no stranger to demystifying the once seemingly unfathomable phenomena of our universe, shows how evolution actually works with eight minutes of crisp animation that take us from molecules in the primordial soup, to bacteria, to plants and polyps, to lampreys, to turtles, to dinosaurs and birds, to wombats, to baboons and apes, to us. Then he goes back and does the whole four billion-year evolutionary journey again in forty seconds. Carl Sagan Explains Evolution in an Eight-Minute Animation.

An end to endings: how to stop more Australian species going extinct. This is part of a major series called Advancing Australia, in which leading academics examine the key issues facing Australia in the lead-up to the 2019 federal election and beyond.

Extinction is the most acute and irreversible manifestation of this loss. Same same but different: when identical twins are non-identical. We all know a set of twins; perhaps even a set of identical twins.

Same same but different: when identical twins are non-identical

In Australia, twins account for about one in 80 births. But in research published today in the New England Journal of Medicine, we learn of a very unique set of Australian twins. Bacteria and viruses are fighting back, but will big pharma save us? An apocalypse is looming, warn the public health experts.

Bacteria and viruses are fighting back, but will big pharma save us?

The spectre of a benighted world where humankind again falls prey to bacterial plagues, wiping out the frail and the young, has been hanging over us for many years now. Infections we have conquered, such as pneumonia and typhoid, will return to kill us. Surgery and chemotherapy for cancer will carry huge risks. It’s a distant scenario as yet, but it cannot be dismissed as alarmist rhetoric. Antibiotics are no longer the cure-all for bacterial infections that they once were. Tuberculosis has become a lot more difficult to treat. Biointeractive Homepage.

More food, cleaner food—gene technology and plants - Nova. An Austrian monk named Mendel was the first to understand the basic principles by which genes are transmitted from parents to offspring.

More food, cleaner food—gene technology and plants - Nova

He worked this out in the 1860s by studying garden peas and the patterns of how certain characteristics (like seed and flower colour) were passed on through the generations of pea plants. Many scientists in the early 1900s further advanced our knowledge of gene transmission. In the following decades, scientists discovered the molecular nature of genes and their products. This led to a revolution in biology which is still gaining momentum. Producing better crops. Food Standards Australia New Zealand. ActionBioscience - promoting bioscience literacy.

Purpose To expand students’ knowledge of animal features and behaviors that can help or hinder their survival in a particular habitat. Context As students approach this Animal Adaptations lesson, bear in mind that, according to research, most lower elementary school students are still forming a basic understanding of how animals survive in their respective environments.

For example, many students understand a simple food link between two animals, but many still assume that animals are still independent of each other and depend on humans to provide food and shelter. Some students are unaware that many animals struggle to obtain adequate amounts of their particular food(s) and cannot simply change their diets as other food becomes available. In earlier grades, students observed local plants and animals in their habitats and learned that animals can eat both plants and each other, as well as use each other for shelter and nesting.

On more than 10,000 World Wide Web pages, the project provides information about biodiversity, the characteristics of different groups of organisms, and their evolutionary history (phylogeny). Each page contains information about a particular group, e.g., salamanders, segmented worms, phlox flowers, tyrannosaurs, euglenids, Heliconius butterflies, club fungi, or the vampire squid.

ToL pages are linked one to another hierarchically, in the form of the evolutionary tree of life. Starting with the root of all Life on Earth and moving out along diverging branches to individual species, the structure of the ToL project thus illustrates the genetic connections between all living things.

The circulatory system is a body-wide network of blood, blood vessels, and lymph.
