Bone remodeling

The amount of bone mass present in the skeleton is the result of formation and resorption. This turnover is directly related to the bodily need to maintain a physiological concentration of ionized calcium in organic fluids and especially to the need to maintain the structural integrity of the skeleton.

Fruits and Seeds

Fruits arise from ovarian development, usually after egg fertilization. In general, the transformation of the ovary into fruit is induced by hormones released by developing embryos. There are cases, however, where fruit formation occurs without pollination. Fruit Parts A fruit is made up of two main parts: the pericarp, resulting from the development of the ovary walls, and the seeds, resulting from the development of fertilized eggs.

By burning fossil fuels to power plants, factories and vehicles, sulfur is released into the air. This sulfur rises into the atmosphere in the form of gas called “sulfur dioxide”, a major air pollutant. When sulfur dioxide joins with atmospheric moisture, it forms sulfuric acid, one of the main components of acid rain.

Mollusks and the environment

For centuries, ships carried solid ballast in the form of stones, sands or metals. Today's vessels use water as ballast, which makes it much easier to load and unload a ship, and is more economical and efficient than solid ballast. But what is ballast? When a ship is unloaded, ie unloaded, it becomes very light.

Hardy-Weinberg Principle

In 1908 the English mathematician Godfrey H. Hardy (1877 - 1947) and the German physician Wilhem Weinberg concluded that if no evolutionary factor acted on a population that met certain conditions, the frequencies of their alleles would remain unchanged across generations. This principle became known as the Hardy-Weinberg law or theorem of gene equilibrium.
