One of the three domains of life (the others being BACTERIA and Eukarya), formerly called Archaebacteria under the taxon Bacteria, but now considered separate and distinct. They are characterized by: (1) the presence of characteristic tRNAs and ribosomal RNAs; (2) the absence of peptidoglycan cell walls; (3) the presence of ether-linked lipids built from branched-chain subunits; and (4) their occurrence in unusual habitats. While archaea resemble bacteria in morphology and genomic organization, they resemble eukarya in their method of genomic replication. The domain contains at least four kingdoms: CRENARCHAEOTA; EURYARCHAEOTA; NANOARCHAEOTA; and KORARCHAEOTA.

Increasing abundance of bowhead whales in West Greenland. (1/6)

In April 2006, a dedicated survey of bowhead whales (Balaena mysticetus) was conducted on the former whaling ground in West Greenland to determine the current wintering population abundance. This effort included a double platform aerial survey design, satellite tracking of the movements of nine whales, and estimation of high-resolution surface time from 14 whales instrumented with time-depth recorders. Bowhead whales were estimated to spend an average of 24% (cv=0.03) of the time at or above 2m depth, the maximum depth at which they can be seen on the trackline. This resulted in a fully corrected abundance estimate of 1229 (95% CI: 495-2939) bowhead whales when the availability factor was applied and sightings missed by observers were corrected. This surprisingly large population estimate is puzzling given that the change in abundance cannot be explained by a recent or rapid growth in population size. One possible explanation is that the population, which demonstrates high age and sex segregation, has recently attained a certain threshold size elsewhere, and a higher abundance of mature females appears on the winter and spring feeding ground in West Greenland. This in combination with the latest severe reduction in sea ice facilitating access to coastal areas might explain the surprising increase in bowhead whale abundance in West Greenland.  (+info)

The bowhead whale (Balaena mysticetus) is a large baleen whale species that belongs to the family Balaenidae. It is also known as the Greenland right whale or Arctic right whale. The name "bowhead" comes from its distinctive bow-shaped skull, which allows the whale to break through thick sea ice in order to breathe.

Bowhead whales are the largest species of baleen whale and can grow up to 60 feet long and weigh as much as 100 tons. They have a robust, rotund body shape with a broad, tapering tail stock and large, paddle-shaped flippers. The most notable feature of bowhead whales is their enormous, complex baleen plates, which can measure up to 16 feet long in adult individuals. These baleen plates are used to filter small prey such as krill and copepods from the water column.

Bowhead whales have a circumpolar distribution in the Arctic and sub-Arctic waters of the Northern Hemisphere, where they spend their entire lives. They are known for their longevity, with some individuals living up to 200 years or more. Bowhead whales are also notable for their vocalizations, which include a variety of low-frequency sounds such as moans, hums, and pulses that can be heard for miles underwater.

Historically, bowhead whales were heavily hunted by commercial whalers due to their large size, slow movement, and high blubber content. As a result, the global population of bowhead whales was significantly reduced, with some estimates suggesting that there were once over 30,000 individuals in the North Atlantic alone. Today, however, conservation efforts have helped to stabilize and even increase the populations of some bowhead whale subpopulations, particularly in the North Pacific and Canadian Arctic.

I believe there may be some confusion in your question. Whales are not a medical term but rather large marine mammals. They belong to the Cetacean family, which includes dolphins and porpoises. If you're asking about a medical condition or something similar that might be associated with the word "whales," I would need more information to provide an accurate response.

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "Fin Whale" is not a medical term. It is a species of whale, and it's the second largest mammal after the blue whale. The fin whale (Balaenoptera physalus) is a fast-swimming, long-bodied whale that's variously known as the finback, razorback, or common rorqual. Fin whales are cosmopolitan and can be found in all oceans of the world. They prefer deep offshore waters and migrate to tropical and subtropical waters in the winter to breed and give birth.

If you have any medical terms that you would like me to define, please let me know!

I'm sorry for any confusion, but the term "Humpback Whale" is not a medical term. It is a species of baleen whale. Here's a common name definition:

Humpback Whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) are a species of baleen whale known for their long pectoral fins, which can be up to one-third of their body length, and their distinctive humped back when they breach the water's surface. They are also famous for their complex and varied songs, which can be heard for miles and play a significant role in their mating rituals. Humpback Whales are found in oceans all around the world and are currently not listed as endangered, although they have been heavily impacted by whaling in the past.

I'm not a doctor, but I can tell you that singing is typically not considered a medical term. However, it does have relevance to various medical fields such as otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat medicine) and speech-language pathology. In these contexts, singing can be described as the controlled production of vocal sound through the vibration of the vocal folds (vocal cords) in the larynx (voice box), combined with the manipulation of pitch, volume, and duration using the respiratory system, articulatory structures (tongue, lips, jaw, etc.), and phonatory control.

It's important to note that singing can also be used as a therapeutic tool in various medical settings, such as voice therapy for individuals with voice disorders or as a form of music therapy for patients with neurological conditions or mental health disorders.

A Minke Whale is not a medical term. It is a type of baleen whale, which is one of the two major groups of whales and dolphins, the other being the toothed whales. There are two species of minke whales: the common minke whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) and the Antarctic minke whale (Balaenoptera bonaerensis). They are relatively small oceanic creatures, with a robust body and a pointed head. The common minke whale is found in both hemispheres, while the Antarctic minke whale is found only in the Southern Ocean.

Minke whales are not typically associated with medical definitions or terminology, unless in the context of a medical condition affecting the species or its population, such as a disease outbreak or injury.

I'm sorry for the confusion, but "Sperm Whale" is not a medical term. It is a species of whale, scientifically known as Physeter macrocephalus. Sperm whales are the largest toothed whales and have distinctive square-shaped heads that can make up to one-third of their body length. They are named for the waxy substance called spermaceti found in their heads, which was once mistakenly thought to be sperm.

If you're looking for a medical definition or information related to human health, please provide more details so I can assist you better.

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "planets" is not a medical term. It is a term used in astronomy to refer to celestial bodies that orbit the sun and meet certain criteria, such as having cleared their orbit of other debris. If you have any questions about medical terminology or concepts, I'd be happy to try to help!

Archaea are a domain of single-celled microorganisms that lack membrane-bound nuclei and other organelles. They are characterized by the unique structure of their cell walls, membranes, and ribosomes. Archaea were originally classified as bacteria, but they differ from bacteria in several key ways, including their genetic material and metabolic processes.

Archaea can be found in a wide range of environments, including some of the most extreme habitats on Earth, such as hot springs, deep-sea vents, and highly saline lakes. Some species of Archaea are able to survive in the absence of oxygen, while others require oxygen to live.

Archaea play important roles in global nutrient cycles, including the nitrogen cycle and the carbon cycle. They are also being studied for their potential role in industrial processes, such as the production of biofuels and the treatment of wastewater.

Dental devices for home care are products designed for use by individuals or their caregivers in a home setting to maintain oral hygiene, manage dental health issues, and promote overall oral health. These devices can include:

1. Toothbrushes: Manual, electric, or battery-operated toothbrushes used to clean teeth and remove plaque and food debris.
2. Dental floss: A thin string used to remove food particles and plaque from between the teeth and under the gum line.
3. Interdental brushes: Small brushes designed to clean between the teeth and around dental appliances, such as braces or implants.
4. Water flossers/oral irrigators: Devices that use a stream of water to remove food particles and plaque from between the teeth and under the gum line.
5. Tongue scrapers: Tools used to clean the tongue's surface, removing bacteria and reducing bad breath.
6. Rubber tips/gum stimulators: Devices used to massage and stimulate the gums, promoting blood circulation and helping to maintain gum health.
7. Dental picks/sticks: Pointed tools used to remove food particles and plaque from between the teeth and under the gum line.
8. Mouthguards: Protective devices worn over the teeth to prevent damage from grinding, clenching, or sports-related injuries.
9. Night guards: Similar to mouthguards, these are designed to protect the teeth from damage caused by nighttime teeth grinding (bruxism).
10. Dental retainers: Devices used to maintain the alignment of teeth after orthodontic treatment.
11. Whitening trays and strips: At-home products used to whiten teeth by applying a bleaching agent to the tooth surface.
12. Fluoride mouth rinses: Anticavity rinses containing fluoride, which help strengthen tooth enamel and prevent decay.
13. Oral pain relievers: Topical gels or creams used to alleviate oral pain, such as canker sores or denture irritation.

Proper use of these dental devices, along with regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings, can help maintain good oral health and prevent dental issues.

Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean to prevent dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, bad breath, and other oral health problems. It involves regular brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash to remove plaque and food particles that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are also an essential part of maintaining good oral hygiene. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a range of health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory infections, so it is important to prioritize oral health as part of overall health and wellbeing.

Rhodobacter is not a medical term, but a genus of bacteria found in the environment. It is commonly found in aquatic environments and can perform photosynthesis, although it is not classified as a plant. Some species of Rhodobacter are capable of fixing nitrogen gas from the atmosphere, making them important contributors to the global nitrogen cycle.

While there may be some medical research into the potential uses or impacts of certain species of Rhodobacter, there is no widely recognized medical definition for this term. If you have any specific concerns about bacteria or infections, it's best to consult with a healthcare professional for accurate information and advice.

"Alteromonas" is a genus of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria that are commonly found in marine environments. These bacteria are known for their ability to produce various enzymes and metabolites that allow them to adapt to and thrive in the diverse conditions found in the ocean. Some species of Alteromonas have been shown to have potential applications in bioremediation, as they are able to break down oil and other pollutants. They may also play a role in carbon cycling in the ocean, as they are capable of utilizing various organic compounds as a source of energy.

It's important to note that while Alteromonas species are generally not harmful to humans, some strains have been found to be opportunistic pathogens, causing infections in individuals with weakened immune systems. However, such cases are relatively rare.

  • Of the five stocks of bowhead populations, three are listed as "endangered", one as "vulnerable", and one as "lower risk, conservation dependent" according to the IUCN Red List. (wikipedia.org)
  • A dramatic loss of sea ice in recent years may be leaving bowheads more vulnerable to killer whale predation. (teacherscollegesj.org)
  • As time went on and the stocks were depleted or more probably, those populations that tended to swim close to shore were wiped out, so whaling had to progress more and more offshore. (coolantarctica.com)
  • Using 12 years of underwater recordings of bowhead whale songs, scientists at Oregon State University recently discovered that the whales have been delaying their migration through the Bering Strait in the fall, or opting to not pass through it at all during the winter months. (opb.org)
  • That is according to scientists at Oregon State University who collected underwater recordings of bowhead whale songs for 12 years. (opb.org)

  • Bowhead whales often reach maturity between the ages of 10 - 15 and will begin reproducing around that age. (teacherscollegesj.org)
  • And then because bowhead whales have been subject to both a commercial and very sustainable subsistence harvest, sometimes old harpoon heads are found in whales that have been taken and you can date those fairly accurately. (opb.org)
  • Bowhead numbers have increased since they were first protected from commercial whaling in 1931. (thecanadianencyclopedia.ca)

  • Eventually, it was recognized that bowheads and right whales were different, but there was still no strong consensus as to whether they shared a single genus or two. (wikipedia.org)
  • Today, the bowhead whale occupies a monotypic genus, separate from the right whales, as proposed by the work of John Edward Gray in 1821. (wikipedia.org)
  • Well, there are a number of lines of evidence for aging the whales. (opb.org)
