I. The first article that I read on the zoology site was about wolves that live in the Yellowstone National Park. The article discussed the wolf’s habitat and the impact of humans. Along with that it discussed how these animals could be put in danger, and ways for humans to help them when that happens. The Yellowstone Wolves article said that the wolves are having a hard time surviving in the Yellowstone National Park, and said that they will need to be moved soon or they could be on the verge of extinction. The second article that I found called Artic Wolves and Their Prey was all about the behaviors of wolves. This article discussed how the wolves survive in these cold conditions and how they have adapted to the cold weather. According to the Artic Wolves and Their Prey said that the temperatures in the Artic range from around negative five degrees to thirty-two degrees. The article also discussed that the number of wolves is slowly decreasing, and if things don’t change soon the article wolf will become extinct. II. My most favorite memory about wolves was when my grandma told me stories about them when she went to the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center. She told me all of these stories about how cute they were and how they gave her kisses. She liked the trip so much that she decided to go back another time. When I told her that I was going to go to the same place as her she got excited and told me all of the same stories all over again. My favorite story that she told me was that she sat down on the ground and a wolf came right up to her and gave her kisses. She said that the wolves were so cute and friendly, and it made me really excited to go on this field trip. My least favorite memory of wolves was when my family and I went up to the mountains with our friends to stay in their cabin. We went out on a hike one morning, and about half way into the hike we saw a wolf. The wolf looked really aggressive so we all got scared. We didn’t know a lot about wolves, but just knowing that wolves’ are a wild animal scared me, and I didn’t want to bother the wolf. III. Without understanding wolf behavior the wolves will never return to their natural habitat. According to the Yellowstone Wolves article scientists have to understand wolf behavior so that they can help them adapt to their environments, which in return will cause for the wolf population to grow. The Artic Wolves and Their Prey article discussed how once the behaviors of wolves are completely understood, scientists could think of ways to help accommodate them and help regrow their population. Once wolf behavior is better understood, it will also help with reproduction of wolves, which in return will grow the wolf population. Understanding the wolf behavior is also necessary so that humans can know what common behavior is for wolves, so that they don’t get scared as easily and don’t harm the wolves. IV. One of the controversies of bringing wolves back into the wild is that people fear that they will be killed off and become even more extinct than they already are. The fear is that once all of the wolves that are being held in captivity are released back into the wild, humans will start hunting them and killing them. If this happens then the number of wolves that are still alive will be even less than it currently is. Another controversy about bringing wolves back into the wild according to the article Arctic Wolves and their Prey is that once the wolves are released back into the wild, they will not know how to live and survive on their own. Right now the wolves are being taken care of by humans, and if they get released back into the wild, they will no longer have humans to feed them and keep them alive. This scares scientists because they feel like the wolves will not remember how to survive on their own, and then they will become extinct for good. This is a scary thing for scientists, and releasing wolves back into the wild is a…

Literacy is important, rather young or old. It helps in every day life. We use literacy when we
read a book, watch a movie, or even read the local news paper. I like literacy because it helps
me learn, things i would not have ever learned before taking this class. I want a bright future
for my children, and myself so therefor i will succeed in writing.
Literacy is very important. Take a look at Benjamin Franklin for instance. He did not have
support from his father, who was strongly against…
Many paper size standards conventions have existed at different times and in different countries. Today there is one widespread international ISO standard (including A4, B3, C4, etc.) and a local standard used in North America (including letter, legal, ledger, etc.). The paper sizes affect writing paper, stationery, cards, and some printed documents. The standards also have related sizes for envelopes.
Most industry standards express the direction of the grain last when giving dimensions…

It is inherently interdisciplinary, requiring knowledge of the physical sciences and mathematics, although specialities may be oriented toward a group of organisms or a level of organization. BOTANY is concerned with plant life, ZOOLOGY with animal life, algology with ALGAE, MYCOLOGY with fungi, MICROBIOLOGY with microorganisms such as protozoa and bacteria, CYTOLOGY with CELLS, and so on.

Small Indian Mongoose
The small indian mongoose, or Herpestes javanicus, is a species introduced by sugar planters in 1883, as they “imported the small Indian mongoose from Jamaica to four Hawaiian islands, Hawai‘i, O‘ahu, Maui, and Kaua‘I”, (Hays & Contant, 2007, p. 3) with the hopes this specie would aid in controlling invasive rat and snake populations within this ecosystem. This organism…

Learning about sharks will be more helpful and learning how to avoid shark attacks because lack of knowledge about the white shark, leads the average person to think that the shark prays on humans and sharks rarely attack humans.
I have organized my paper into four main sections. In the first section I discuss the scientific classification of the white shark. In the second section I will talk about anatomy and appearance of the White Shark, which includes from the description of the White Shark color…
