    Every 30 minutes 30 acres of trees in rainforests are being destroyed. Large areas of rainforests are destroyed in order to remove only a few logs. They really should put more effort in protecting our rainforest’s and not cut down so many trees. We need the rainforest for so many things one of those things is carbon protection. Slowing deforestation by 50% from current levels could save approximately fifty billion tons of carbon from being released into the atmosphere. The rainforest also saves us from drought. When the trees are no longer present they can’t absorb ra

    The crocodile or the Crocdyus Adutus is the scientific name of the American crocodile. The crocodile has been on earth for over two hundred million years, in this time the crocodile has evolved in over five thousand different species. The average size of a crocodile is about ten to twelve feet; but the biggest crocodile ever recorded is over twenty eight feet. The average life span of a crocodile is from seventy to a hundred years. A crocodile’s bite is capable of being up to five thousand psi. The crocodile’s diet consists of: mammals, birds, reptiles, fish and carrio

    Clear Cutting

    1256 words, 6 pages

    Argument essay: CLEAR-CUTTING In the past three decades humans has cleared over half the Earth's original forests. The only countries remaining that still have some-what areas of original forests are Russia, Brazil, and Canada. Such devastation has occurred over these few years as a result of clear-cut logging being practiced all around the world. First, Loggers allow no time for re-forestation. In brief, trees are being cut down faster than they can be re-planted. Second, clear-cutting speeds up erosion and causes landslides, which are mostly caused from road build

    The Fluidity Of Dinosaurs

    1274 words, 6 pages

    Dinosaurs are a diverse group of animals of the clade Dinosauria. They first appeared during the Triassic period, 231.4 million years ago, and were the dominant terrestrial vertebrates for 135 million years, from the start of the Jurassic until the end of the Cretaceous, when the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event led to the extinction of most dinosaur groups ending the Mesozoic Era. The fossil record indicates that birds evolved from theropod dinosaurs during the Jurassic Period and, consequently, they are considered to be modern feathered dinosaurs. Some birds s

    Biology And Human Evolution

    1525 words, 7 pages

    Human Biology and Evolution Humans are Alive The earliest human life form can be traced back more than 3.5 billion years ago. Humans are said to be descendants of a single celled ancestor. Although they are different in size and shape all basic functions are alike. The more complex the organization of the cell became the more successful and developed it became. As these single celled organisms developed they became known as pre-humans. We share many characteristics with these pre-humans. Some of these characteristics include the masters of heredity DNA and RNA as well as proteins composed of a

    Salt Marsh Research

    1761 words, 8 pages

    Saltmarshes consist of two main geomorphological elements. First, a convex upward, planar or concave upward vegetated platform high in the tidal frame that is flooded by the tide and, second, generally unconnected networks of tidal creeks that branch and diminish landward towards the interior of the saltmarsh from its seaward edge. Additionally, some saltmarshes have pronounced areas of higher ground (levees) along the banks of the creeks, varying densities of water-filled depressions (salt pans) or bare areas of mud (mud basins) which are connected to the creek system

    Introduction To Prehistoric Fossils

    1760 words, 8 pages

    Life as we know it started on Earth about 4000 million years ago. At this time the Earth was covered mainly by oceans and the atmosphere consisted of carbon dioxide and water vapour, with some carbon monoxide, other toxic gases and nitrogen. The term ‘’Prehistoric’’ defines life between the appearance of the first organisms and the first written record of history, several thousand years ago, which included the sudden increase in life and mass extinctions, such as the Ice Age. The first forms of life on the earth were bacteria and single-celled organisms that originated and lived in the sea;

    The Defense For The Predators

    424 words, 2 pages

    Phil 2 The view by that constant animal suffering on Earth gives humans reason to desire the extinction of all predatory animal species is purported by philosopher Jeff McMahon. He asserts several points in defense to his argument. I will refute his most relevant claims by using Peter Singer’s argument against “speciesism” and closely analyzing each of McMahon’s points. McMahon’s biggest defense for extinction of all carnivores is that it would be good to prevent the vast suffering and countless violent deaths caused by predation. His assumption that the end of all
