• Not only can we help you organize all your tools and toys with a custom shed but we can also help you organize all your Animals and critters with our custom coops, barns, & kennels. (gandbsheds.com)
  • In the practicals, you will learn how to classify animals and interpret their features, and develop an understanding of how birds fly, fish feed, worms burrow and parasites infect us. (edu.au)
  • Nature abounds with structures built by animals other than humans, or animal architecture, as it is commonly termed, such as termite mounds, wasp and beehives, burrow complexes of rodents, beaver dams, elaborate nests of birds, and webs of spiders. (wikipedia.org)
  • Examples (drawn primarily from marine invertebrates) of how animals are 'designed' will include: hydrostatic and rigid skeletons, various modes of aquatic locomotion (burrowing, crawling, swimming), vision, bioluminescence and buoyancy. (bamfieldmsc.com)
  • Carbohydrates are the most abundant biological molecules, and fill numerous roles, such as the storage and transport of energy (starch, glycogen) and structural components (cellulose in plants, chitin in animals). (wikipedia.org)
  • I thought the material covered in this course was really valuable because it forced us to think critically and could be applied to many animals, and some concepts could even be applied to other areas (i.e. general mechanics, building structures). (bamfieldmsc.com)
  • Most of the structures that make up animals, plants and microbes are made from three basic classes of molecule: amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids (often called fats). (wikipedia.org)
  • These constructions may arise from complex building behaviour of animals such as in the case of night-time nests for chimpanzees, from inbuilt neural responses, which feature prominently in the construction of bird songs, or triggered by hormone release as in the case of domestic sows, or as emergent properties from simple instinctive responses and interactions, as exhibited by termites, or combinations of these. (wikipedia.org)
  • The process of building such structures may involve learning and communication, and in some cases, even aesthetics. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tool use may also be involved in building structures by animals. (wikipedia.org)
  • You can use the ClipPlanes option to selectively cut skin and muscles to expose the internal structures in the graphics. (wolfram.com)
  • In ectothermic animals, moderation of temperature, along with architectural modifications to absorb, trap or dissipate energy, maximises the rate of development, as in the case of the communal silk nests of the small eggar moth Eriogaster lanestris. (wikipedia.org)
  • Controlled shape  3d structure optimized for special functions (eg. (coursehero.com)
  • Turbellarians have no circulatory system, a factor that restricts the size and shape of the animals. (jrank.org)
  • In a case apparently of masquerade, the red-faced spinetail Cranioleuca erythrops places bits of grass and other material loosely streaming both above and below the nest chamber to break the shape of the nest and to cause it to resemble random debris without any underlying structure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Free-living means they are not parasites (PAIR-uh-sites), which are animals or plants that live on or in other animals or plants without helping them and usually harming them. (jrank.org)
  • As librettist Cynthia Troup points out, the Australian Bureau of Statistics uses the term "dwelling structure" to cover the buildings in which people find shelter. (blogspot.com)
