Why aren't any of you talking about the sun? It was there before any life on this planet began. You asked why mutations started in the first place. How about the idea that mutations are a tool for adaptation. The sun changes, the weather changes, gravitational forces change, atmospheric content chan...

How about a parasite that can travel with dense rain clouds. I know it seems impossible for a large parasite to cling onto a tiny molecule, but maybe they can use some sort of intermolecular force to "bond" to water.

Pull them by hand!!! Weeding is a necessary part of life if you want to garden. If you use pesticides you're just creating more problems for yourself.

Re: Extinction - Raising conservation awareness

The New England Red Wolf was declared extinct in the wild in 1980. Luckily 17 or so were captured prior to that and with a little breeding there are now estimated to be 100 or so in the wild and 165 in captivity. They're not technically extinct, but the story behind it is very interesting.

Re:

IMHO the word your prof wanted to see is "translate", i.e. Genetic code is translation of DNA sequence into amino acid sequence in proteins. I strongly agree. The Rosetta Stone basically was an ancient tablet we used to translate multiple languages. The genetic code is similar such that i...
