Branches of Biology: Second Deliverly

Exercise 5

The branches of Biology that correspond to the study of:

* Habitat: The area or environment where an organism or ecological community normally lives or occurs

* Stages of growth: It is more related with the anthropology science

* Geographic location: As it says in geography talks about is the geographical area within which that species can be found

* Type of diet: the foods eaten, as by a particular person or group. In this case we are talking about the curtains food.

* Food chain: A food chain also shows how the organisms are related with each other by the food they eat.

The functions of the following bio elements in living beings:

* Carbon: All living things contain carbon in some form.

* They include proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and carbohydrates so that make them so necessary.

* Hydrogen: Hydrogen is present in all organic compounds. A form of water in which both hydrogen atoms are replaced by deuterium (2H, or D) is called heavy water (D2O) and is toxic to mammals.

* Oxygen: Unhealthy or weak cells due to improper metabolism lose their natural immunity and are thus susceptible to viruses and lead the way to all kinds of serious health problems.

* Nitrogen: Plants obtain nitrogen from soil in the form of nitrates. Plants then use this nitrogen to produce proteins and other compounds that contain nitrogen as well.

1. When animals eat nitrogen-containing plants, their digestive system converts the nitrogen compounds into substances required for their bodily renewal, repair, and growth.

2. Several of the plants that grow from the ground are also harvested and sold for consumption.

3. The fungus and bacteria will change the nitrogen containing compounds in the dead plants back into nitrates once again.

* Sulfur: As well as this it maintains the balance of oxygen in the body and keeps skin, hair and nails healthy. Another thing, is that it plays a rather important role in producing collagen, a type of protein found in connective tissue, keratin and hair

* Phosphorus: It is needed for a healthy bones and teeth, energy metabolism, and acid base balance in the body.

The functions of the following biomolecules in living beings:

* Carbohydrates: Providing energy and regulation of blood glucose,
