Why do island often have their own species of animals and plants?
Secluded environments, such as islands, have their own animals and plants because they were allowed to evolve in a unique environment. The animals and plants adapt to the unique living conditions.
There is also very little or no migration of plants and animals from other areas.
because lots of people breed animals mixed with lots of other species
Mid-successional species are plants and animals that grow after the original species die off. These plants and animals often are the first division of the original species that are created when cells are combined to form a stronger species.
Why are biomes often classified according to their plant species rather than by the animals that live in it?
Because plants are stationary and do not move like animals do.
Plants are often rare and contain many unusual features not yet discovered by mankind. Animals are studied for the same reasons, but there is not near as many exotic species of animals as there are plants on Earth.
All most all of the plants on Rapa Nui (Easter Island) are exotics, introduced. They have been brought for food, horticulture, landscape and by accident. I am in the process of producing a current species list and other papers on the plant life here on the island. Some of the plants there are very exotic. Most of them are very rare. Rare plants are plants that you don't see very often.
Charity's are a great way to save species of plants and animals as they often use the money to buy protected areas where the animal or plant can grow/live without being harmed, growing plants in a fake environment with perfect conditions can rise the number of there kind of plant then they can be replanted in there natural habitat. Animals can be bred in captivity and set into the wild to help increase the numbers… Read More
Yes and some jaguars eat carrion although they most often eat living animals. Jaguars are often described as oppportunistic feeders because they eat over 85 species of animals, plus plants and dead carcasses.
"Native" animals are defined as not being harmful to an environment without humans, they would be considered part of a balance. If the environment has become unbalanced, then their actions, perhaps predatory can be harmful to certain species. However, many plants and animals have spread beyond their native areas, and are often considered to be "invasive species". Often natural control mechanisms have not been also imported or otherwise evolved, and these invasive species can be… Read More
If they are not a protected species animals are often a natural resource
It often depends on the plant species. But for most species of trees it is often how many rings it has in its cell wall. For plant species all together it is often the thickness of the cell wall.
Yes. This is often how the ancients would classify their plants and animals.
Humans cab and do breed animals often. Zoos often take in endangered animals as a way to foster their reproduction and protect the species.
Why do you think biomes are often classified according to their plant species rather than by the animals that live in the biomes?
Because plants are stationary (can't move). While animals can move around at their own free will and they may migrate. Classifying biomes by animal species may not be 100% accurate, but it can be done.
They have tall trees, few plants on the forest floor, buttress roots, high biodiversity, rich soil and frequent rain. It is hot and humid. It rains often and it contains many species of plants and animals.
Plants require their seeds to be spread around in order to flourish. When animals eat the plant's fruit, which contains its seeds, the animals will then spread the seed when they excrete waste. This allows plants to continue to survive. The above is only one way. Plants cannot survive without animals because of the nutrients they get from the wastes animals deposit and when animals themselves eventually die. Nutrients like nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus are… Read More
Genetically modified or transgenic plants or animals are made by adding genes (DNA) from one species into a different species, this is often done to incourage certain traits that are benificial to humans. e.g. pest resistence in farming crops
Most plants and animals break off into different genus' and have their own special names. However, as a whole, plants are often called Plantae and animals are called Animalia.
Genetically modified or transgenic plants or animals are made by adding genes (DNA) from one species into a different species, this is often done to incourage certain traits that are benificial to humans. e.g. pest resistence in farming crops.
Grazing and trampling of soil can often prevent succession by stopping the growth of some species of plants. For example, a hay field will not turn into a woodland if animals such as sheep or deer constantly graze the saplings that grow, causing them to die.
Animals and plants that live in one place are called an ecosystem. Often, they rely on each other in order to survive.
Plankton are very small, microscopic plants and animals. They have little or no power of locomotion and float in surface waters. They are found in fresh and salt water. Planktonic animals include protozoans. While they are often referred to as one-celled animals, they have characteristics found in both plants and animals. Most protozoans cannot be seen without a microscope. There are about 30,000 species of protozoans that have been identified so far!
Yes, animals often adopt other animals babies. Sometimes they are out of species .
Yes. Tornadoes can be very destructive to vegetation and often kill or injure animals.
Yes. Bees will often kill intruder species such as hornets, often by swarming them.
Many species of animals are not suited to living in captivity. This is often due to specialized diet or habitat requirements. Other species are dangerous to humans, or will not reproduce in captivity.
most often- crazy
No, different species of animals cannot procreate with each other; this is part of the definition of "species". There are some minor exceptions between very closely related species, such as horses and donkeys, the offspring of which are mules, but unless they are extremely closely related (such as the big cats), such offspring are usually sterile. With plants it gets a little weirder, though even there hybrids are often (but not always) sterile.
Polyploidy occurs with the organism has double the normal set of chromosomes. In plants this can produce larger more viable plants, but it animals this is an abnormal mutation and often fatal.
Often animals are killed during catastrophic flooding. Plants likewise may drown in the ensuing floodwaters or be uprooted by the flood's force.
Plate tectonics affect biodiversity via the shifting of the plates, and the resulting separation of species. Plants and animals fossils are often found on one continent, despite never known to have lived there.
When there are to many of the same species, the animals with the better adaptations survive.
a well know oceanic species called "floor dwelling sausage dogs" or often nicknamed "kates" these animals have distinctive white and orange skin, they eat anything that is available and often try to mate with different species of fish.
Plant hybridization is the process of creating plant hybrids, often as new species of plants. This is done by crossing genetics from two different types or species of plants and joining them to make a new plant.
Sure you can! Children's stories often have talking animals so it wouldn't be hard to have some talking plants too.
Never. The Dodo is an extinct species of pigeon form the island of Mauritius.
Often at the bottom of the food chain is a producer. Because it makes its own food, therefore plants are producers because they do not eat animals or other plants.
Yes it can!! It often push's species to the brink of extinction..
Two examples of competition are food and space. Animals and plants mainly compete for food and space in order to survive in their habitat or the environment. Without food or space, the plants and animals cannot survive. Therefore, animals and plants often compete for food and space.
The type of food in the desert depend on who is eating it. Animals in the desert often eat other animals. Some animals can eat certain desert plants.
In general, most do not. Often they kill or eat them. However, sometimes a mother of one species will adopt a baby of another species, and different species have developed unusual and friendly relationships. We enjoy hearing about things like that because they are so rare.
Phytoplankton consists of only plants, and has no gestation period at all, while zooplankton is made up of tiny animals, often the newly hatched young of many marine species. The gestation periods can vary widely, but often falls in the range of anywhere from 7 to 15 days.
Homesteading is one term that is used to describe the process of people growing plants for food. Homesteaders often also grow animals to eat and as work animals.
Marine plants often have shallow root systems or no roots at all. They are also essential nutrition for many marine animals.
Animals were mistreated Work was done in unhealthy conditions. Products from the plants were often unsafe
Genera and species. These are the most specific categories. For Instance: for humans, the Genera and species are Homo sapiens.
No they do not. Only humans get chlamydia trachomatis. There are other chlamydia species that affect animals. Chlamydia psittaci is the chlamydia species that most often affects birds.
If you mean the term used for the animals on display in general. If you are not referring to the names of each individual species, then "exhibits", and "specimens" are terms used often for the animals out on display in a zoo.
They keep the habitat that they live in and often where their source of food is.
Yes,mostly in animals,or plants,mostly in female privates.
Yes, there is such things as this;Octopus plants (Drosera species) are carnivorous plants found throughout the world. There are over 120 different species of Drosera plants, according to the Carnivorous Plant Society. Also called "Sundews," these plants trap and slowly digest small insects to obtain nutrients. For this reason, Droseras are often found growing in nutrient-poor soil. Nicknamed "octopus" for their rosette shape and often long, slender foliage, Drosera plants are found on every continent… Read More
