What is the movement of organisms from one place to another?

User Avatar
Lentiviruses are very efficient at delivering genetic materials to both dividing and non-dividing cells. According to whether proviral DNA is formed in transduced cells, lentiviruses can be further divided into two groups: integrating lentivirus (ILV) and integrase-deficient lentivirus (IDLV). ILV is first developed and applied in scientific research and IDLV is constructed later through genetic modification.

How long will the footprints on the moon last?

User Avatar
The footprints on the moon will likely be there for as long as the moon is. Unlike Earth, there’s no liquid water, no volcanic activity, and no weather to speak of on the moon, so aside from the occasional meteorite and solar wind (which takes ages to have an effect), there’s nothing on the moon to mess with the footprints. They’re still there—along with spacecraft, scientific equipment, mementos, bags of human waste, and a lot more.

What factors determine climate?

User Avatar
The factors are:- 1. Distance from the sea 2. Ocean currents 3. Direction of prevailing winds 4. Relief 5. Proximity to the equator 6. The El Nino phenomenon 7. Recently it has accepted that Human activity is also affecting climate. 8. Location or... 1. Latitude - Distance north or south of equator 2. Altitude - Distance above or below sea level 3. Global Winds - What winds are blowing/where they're coming from/warm or cold 4. Ocean currents - What currents are coming in/where from 5. Topography - Distance from mountains (how close they are) 6. Distance From Water - How close the area is to and ocean or lake (any body of water) These are the main most important 6. latitude, prevailing winds, mountains, large bodies of water, and ocean currents. Precipitation, latitude, trapping of heat, winds and ocean currents, shape and elevations of land masses. (Prentice Hall Biology) A: latitude ocean currents wind elevation relief near water A: The factors that determine climate are latitude, distance from water, elevation, and ocean currents A: it is sun, location, water, wind, and mountains. Lattitude The factors that determine climate are temperature, precipitation, altitude, location, latitude, tilt of the axis, surface currents, winds, and elevation. The latitude, the transportation of heat by winds and ocean currents Latitude, Altitude, Mountain Barriers, Ocean Currents, Land-Water Relationship, and Prevailing Winds. five factors that determine climate is elevation, latitude, weather, ,and biome

What is the common idea of work?

User Avatar
Personally, I would classify work as performing a task, in exchange for a reward of some kind. In most situations, the task is a job, and the reward is a wage or salary. As for the common idea? Wait for more people to answer, then look at what their idea of work is.

Simple scrapes, cuts and internal injuries would slowly build and ravage our body both from the inside-out and the other way around. There are certain strains of bacteria that are resistant to almost every form of antibiotic. 2 of them may cause a lot of damage in the near future: MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) and VRE (Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus).

What does under the poverty line mean?

User Avatar
The "poverty line" is a point where an individual's income just meets the minimum necessary for basic survival in a society. Firstly, there are two type of poverty: absolute poverty (also known as destitution) is where an individual is unable to meet basic human survival needs - they are unable to get enough food, water, clothing, and shelter to continue to live, and will die relatively shortly after reaching the absolute poverty level; relative poverty (also known as being poor) where the individual's standard of living is considerably below the mean (generally, at least 50% below mean income level). Those in relative poverty are not in any immediate danger of death, but suffer from significant issues with malnutrition, health, substandard clothing and housing, and an almost complete lack of any luxury goods, as compared to a "typical" member of that society. In most contexts, the poverty line is the income level where an individual (or family) enters relative poverty. For instance, 2010 mean US household income is about $50,000. The poverty limit for a family of four was a household income of $22,000, or about 44% of the mean household income. Thus, living under the poverty line means that the individual/family is definitely poor, and cannot afford much more than the very basics of life. In the United States, the phrase "under the poverty line" has a specific meaning in the context of government documents. It refers to the "absolute poverty line": the income threshold below which families or individuals are considered to be lacking the resources to meet the basic needs for healthy living; having insufficient income to provide the food, shelter and clothing needed to preserve health.

Are Sand fiddler crab vertebrates?

User Avatar
No. No species of crab is a vertebrate. Vertebrates have a vertebral column (backbone) that is part of an internal skeleton. Crabs are crustaceans, and their skeleton covers the outside of their body, like plate armor - they have no backbone.
