Does anyone know the definition of an OPPORTUNISTIC POPULATION? I have looked all over the internet and i cant find anything.

Opportunistic species are those that colonise an unstable or periodically extreme environment.They can colonise quickly, although they are often‘out competed’ by other organisms once the environment becomes stable. They are prevalent where man or nature has created a disturbance where the stable species have been killed or moved. This could be a landslie, fire, flood, logging, mining etc. An OPPORTUNISTIC POPULATION is just a given number of such a species living within the disturbed area.

I need help regarding my homework. It says: Mass number may differ in various ______________. And also: Which of these four numbers is most related to the chemical behavior of an atom: atomic number, mass number atomic weight, or valence? Explain. Thanks for the help.

mass number may differ in various atoms

What is matter

valence is most related to chemical behavior because the fullness of the valence shell determines how the atom will react with other atoms

why is the carbon cycle said to be the reciprocal processes of photosynthesis and respiration?

The ? variable is the part of the experiment that is affected by the independant variable.


?= dependent variable.

I need help answering the study guide questions for a lab titled "Principles of Enzyme Catalysis"

Ok so my class did AP Bio lab #1 with the dialysis tubing. The water and iodine start in the beaker and the glucose and starch are in the bag.What happens after 30 min.? are the startch molecules too big to pass through the bag? where do all of the 4 components end up? thnx

can someone please help me with these questions?:
1. Some prokaryotes are capable of reproducing once every half-hour.
Suppose you placed a single bacterium in a suitable culture medium and it (and its descendants) proceeded to reproduce at this rate. How many cells would be present after 2 hours? After 12 hours? What factors determine how long this kind of increase can continue?

2. Why can prokaryotes quickly reinfect a patient if they were not wiped out? How might this result in evolution of drug resistant pathogens?

3.Write a short essay that contrasts the ways the five -kingdom and three domain system classify the eukaryotes included in the candidate kingdoms?

1. To answer the first question, we need to calculate the number of bacterial cells after a given time interval using exponential growth. Each time interval, the number of cells doubles. After 30 minutes, there will be 2 cells. After 1 hour (2 intervals), there will be 4 cells. After 2 hours (4 intervals), there will be 16 cells. After 12 hours (24 intervals), there will be 2^24 cells. To calculate this accurately, you can use the formula 2^t, where t is the number of time intervals.

The factors that determine how long this kind of increase can continue depend on the availability of resources such as nutrients and space. As the population increases, resources may become limited. Once the resources are exhausted or the environment becomes unsuitable, the growth rate will slow down or stop.

2. Prokaryotes can quickly reinfect a patient if they were not completely eliminated because they have short generation times and high reproduction rates. This allows them to multiply rapidly and exploit favorable conditions. If some bacteria survive a treatment or develop resistance to drugs, they can pass on this resistance to future generations, leading to the evolution of drug-resistant pathogens.

3. The five-kingdom system and the three-domain system are different approaches to classifying eukaryotes. In the five-kingdom system, eukaryotes are classified into the kingdoms Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, Protista, and Monera. The Monera kingdom includes both prokaryotes and some eukaryotes. In contrast, the three-domain system classifies all living organisms into three domains: Bacteria, Archaea, and Eukarya. The eukaryotes are placed in the Eukarya domain, which comprises four kingdoms: Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, and Protista. This system separates prokaryotes and eukaryotes more distinctly.

Both systems have their merits and limitations. The five-kingdom system is simpler and easier to understand, but it does not account for the evolutionary relationships between organisms. The three-domain system is based on molecular and evolutionary evidence and provides a more accurate representation of the relatedness of organisms. However, it is a more complex system and may require more specialized knowledge to fully understand and utilize.
