Structure And Functions Of Organs Paper

Identify an organism that lives within 50 miles of your home.

Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper about how the organism has adapted to survive in their specific environment. Include the following points in your paper:

  • Briefly describe the environment (temperature, landscape, food sources, etc.) and describe the organism’s role in the environment. Determine which organism your chosen organism would be most closely related to using a phylogenetic tree.
  • Identify the structures and functions of the main organs found in your selected organism.
  • Explain how the organism has evolved physiologically to become suited to its environment.
  • Explain how things would change if the organism were to be transplanted to a significantly different environment:
  • Would their organ system still be as efficient? Why or why not?
  • Would the organism survive in this new environment? Why or why not?

Include the diagram and other appropriate pictures in your paper and make sure to provide a full reference for the images in your reference section.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines including references and in-text citations. Your paper should include a well written introduction and conclusion. Use only academic research sources.

Biology Questions

1. List 5 mechanisms by which gene frequencies in a population can be altered. Describe each briefly!

2. What is homology, and why does it provide evidence for evolution?

3. What characters do whales posses that make them mammals rather than fish? Why are whales thought to have evolved from land dwelling animals? What is the evidence?

4. Describe characteristics that differentiate humans from other apes in the hominin group.

5. Describe several ways and give examples of how a new species can evolve from a previous species. Explain how in related species one can stay more similar to the common ancestor while others can change more drastically.

6. How is the modern day classification system of life organized (meaning by what criteria are groups of organisms placed within the system)?

7. Why have there been changes that have led to larger and smaller divisions in the older system of Kingdom, Phyla, Order, Family, Genus, Species?

8.Discuss the creation vs. evolution controversy (be specific). How do you think it might be solved, if it can?

Biological Bases of Human Behavior Final Paper.

Biological Bases of Human Behavior Final Paper. . The paper should be 10 – 15 pages in length, which includes the title, abstract and reference pages. The goal of the paper should be to look at a method or method(s) used in biopsychology to investigate the cause of a psychological disorder. The disorder that you choose is up to you but it should be something studied in the field of biopsychology. You will then choose studies that look at different methodological approaches of biopsychology to study these disorders. It is important that you choose methodological approaches that you understand and are comfortable discussing in detail. For example, you should not choose gene knockout technology in the study of alcohol abuse if you are weak in the area of genetics and molecular genetics. You will be expected to not only summarize the methodology you choose to focus on but also the strengths and weaknesses associated with it

Fulfill Supply Chain Demand

In the above lecture you saw the example of Carrier distribution in which inventory levels were radically decreased through a combination of lead time reduction and process revolution. These changes were implemented in no small part due to the influence of Hammer and his associates in process re-engineering.

What’s your response to the idea of just blowing it up and implementing a new process? Have you done this in your current or any past job or company? What was the result? Are processes better or worse?

Health Disparities

As you think about the patients you currently serve or hope to work with in the future, it is important to be aware of the health disparities some populations experience.

In this assignment, you will examine health disparities for a population of your choice and then offer a community-based approach to improve patient outcomes.

When selecting your population, consider aspects of culture, geographical area, generational factors, and any other factors that might be considered outside the perspective of the majority population.

Describe the types of health disparities for this group, and then select one health care concern to focus on for the rest of the assignment. For example, the elderly might be your population and the health care concern could be heart disease.


•Specify the selected population.

•Identify the types of health disparities for this group and select one health care concern to focus on for this assignment.

•Distinguish factors that create health disparities for this population. ◦Why does this group have health disparities?

•Describe the identified health concern for this population as well as the pharmacological treatment for the condition.

•Describe and discuss how the cultural values, socio-economic status, and traditional beliefs and practices impact the acceptance of pharmacological treatment for this identified health concern.

•Offer at least one strategy for a community-based approach to improve the current pharmacological treatment regimens for this population.

◦What types of community outreach programs could be consulted to effectively reach your target population?

◦Are there education, access, or other issues that community programs could help address?

•Discuss why you believe this strategy would be effective. Support your rationale with references from at least three resources, at least two of which must be from resources not required for this course.

Additional Requirements

•Length of paper: 3–4 pages, not including title page and reference page.

•References: At least three resources, two of which must be from resources not required for this course.

•Formatting: Follow proper APA style and formatting.


Biotechnology refers to the technical applications of living organisms or their functions. These applications may be used in engineering, medicine, or agriculture, to name a few. Biotechnology processes and procedures are varied and range from the domestication of animals to genetic engineering. At its core, biotechnology involves the modification of a biological process for a human defined purpose. Write a paper which includes the following:

Evaluate current or future applications of biotechnology in the fields of medicine or agriculture.

Provide at least three real-world examples of current or future applications of biotechnology in either of these fields. Present a minimum of three reliable references.

Write a 2–3-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

Epidemiology of Health and Illness.

Epidemiology of Health and Illness.

Transforming the Public’s Health Care Systems.

Global Health

Please read chapter 4, 5 & 7 of the class textbook and review the attached Power Point presentations.  Once done answer the following questions;

1. How does the epidemiologic triad apply to health issues we see in the hospital? What are some common diagnoses in the acute care setting? What about in the community setting? How does the epidemiologic triad differ when a nurse is providing care to someone in the community or in his home? Does the nurse have more or less control in either arena?

2. Discuss the data presented regarding obesity in America in the Ethical Connection feature on page 118.  Please review the data and discuss your feelings about the role of community health nurses in community nutrition.

3. What are some of the causes for increases in healthcare costs in recent years, as outlined in the chapter?  Brainstorm some examples that you have actually witnessed in the clinical setting. Can any of these factors be modified? What could nurses do to help cut down on costs related to the different factors?

4. Why are the causes of morbidity and mortality in other countries different than in the United States? In what ways are they the same? Why do those differences exist? What types of services & interventions are needed in less developed countries to help with their health issues?

As stated in the class syllabus please present your assignment in an APA format word document, Arial 12 font attach to the thread in the discussion board title “Week 2 discussion questions”.  A minimum of 2 references no more than 5 years old are required with 2 replies to any of your peers sustained with the proper references.  A minimum of 500 words without counting the first and reference page are required.
