Learning Goal: I’m working on a biology multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.A) Briefly describe any two (2) examples of hybridization documented for marine organisms, and please include the site where you found this information (10 pts possible)B) From your examples above, do you think the hybrid offspring are viable? How would this impact how the term species is defined? Please briefly explain. (10 pts possible) How are marine reptiles and marine birds similar?Reptiles and birds are much more closely related than you may think. There are a number of reptile lines that gave rise to birds and mammals (polyphyletic origins). While reptiles and birds are morphologically distinct, they share some common characteristics. Think about these.How might sea urchins be able to share their habitat and food resources?Two species of sea urchins live practically side by side on sandy bottoms. The two species appear to have the same diet: drift seaweeds and other bits of organic matter. They are able to live in the same environment with minimal competition.What does mudflat contribute to the environment, and why do we need to protect mudflats?Mudflats are areas of terrain nearby a source of water that is frequently inundated by tides and are typically desolate, with no vegetation. Mudflats, referred to as tidal flats, are produced by the accumulation of muck by tides or waterways. These coastal geological formations are found in protected coastal locations such as bays, coves, lagoons, estuaries, and so on. Because most of a mudflat’s deposited area is inside the aquatic environment, the mudflat is immersed below water and resurfaced twice daily.Mudflats occur because of sediment and muck being carried in by seas, oceans, and streams. When the tide flows in, the mud and sediment get dumped in bays and lagoons. The water combines with the muck and sediment to form the muddy sinkhole seen on mudflats.Question:What is the difference between sandy shore, salt marshes, and mudflats? Are there any similarities?
How do mudflats contribute to the environment?
Why do we need to protect mudflats?
What type of marine animals lives in mudflats? Name 2 marine animals and give each an explanation of their purpose in the mudflat environment.
Would Humans Adapt To Life On The Sea?If climate change was exponentially increased and we were forced to live on sea, would humans evolve? Instead of getting gills, is it possible that we would get webbed feet for better swimming similar to other mammals that have adapted to marine life.How would the economy be affected if whales and dolphins didn’t exist?Humans have always been fascinated with marine life, especially with whales and dolphins. If you visit the beaches of California, like Long Beach, Redondo Beach, and Newport Beach, you will see whale watching tours being offered. They are normally popular and many people will buy tickets to board ships to go to the ocean in hopes of seeing some of them. Even other countries most likely offer some sort of entertainment regarding whales or dolphins.There are also companies like SeaWorld and other aquariums that profit off of dolphin or orca shows, and it is a multibillion dollar industry.Without whales or dolphins, how would this affect the economies of towns dependent on marine life like whales and dolphins or industries that make money off of them?Why is it that some animals can survive without a heart?Some marine animals, such as jellies, are capable of living without a vascular system or heart. These creatures are among many that can live without blood or a heart. As we know, humans need a heart to survive. It is one of the most important organs in the human body. Why is it that some creatures do not need to rely on a heart to live? Would it be possible for other animals to evolve to a point where they no longer need a cardiovascular system?
