You should do you project on the monkey that they put the implants in its brain so that it could move certain computer images on a screen just with its mind.
The hand of God may well be all around us, but it is not, nor can it be, the task of science to dust for fingerprints.

plants related to zoölogy

If you're consequent with what you want to do your work about and what your knowledge is, I think you should take plants or funghi as far as they have to do with animals. e.g. Cows eat grass, or funghi can infect animals' skin, and so on.

You can do your project about symbiotic relationships between microorganisms and their consequences in the alimentary industry talking about fodders and, as a consequence, the effect in domestic animals (pathologies, etc).

For example, the symbiotic relationship between Tetrahymena (a protozoan) and Salmonella (a very pathogenic bacterium) is a problem for the alimentary industry because this special affinity helps the bacterium to resist more critical conditions (when it is into the protozoan, increases its protection and resistence).

When Salmonella is into Tetrahymena, resists all the industrial processes for erasing microorganisms which are in food (pasteurization, etc). So when fodders are made, Salmonella is already alive and it can infect cattle, etc.

Good luck and tell us soon your decission! ;)

good suggestion

and since you know about fungi..


insects and :

I saw a few ladybird beetles crawling over mushrooms during the foray. I assume they were deliberately hunting other insects eating the mushrooms. It would be possible to have quite a complex little web of life in one small space, since theoretically you could have a ladybird beetle infected by a fungus eating insects which were eating a fungus which is parasitizing another fungus which is itself parasitizing a living tree! It fair makes your head spin, doesn't it?
