  1. Environment
  • surrounding of the organism i.e. biotic or a biotic factors
  • Habitat
  • A specific locality (home) of a living organism with a set of factors (conditions) in which an organism lives.
  1. Ecological niche
  • Role of an organism in its habitat e.g. feeding relationship
  1. Population
  • Number (group) of organisms of a species occupying a given habitat
  1. Community
  • Refers to different species of (plants and animals) organisms in a given habitat (area) co-existing or interacting (living) with each other and the environment in which they live
  • Ecosystem
  • A community of organisms interacting with one another and the environment in which they live
  • Biosphere
  • The earth and its atmosphere where living organisms are found
  1. Autecology
  • Study of a single (individual) species of plants or animals within a community, ecosystem, habitat or environment.
  1. Synecology
  • Study of natural communities (plants and animals) or populations interacting within an ecosystem.
  1. Carrying capacity
  • maximum number of organisms an area can support without being depleted
  • Biome
  • geographical area with particular climatic conditions and flora and fauna
  • it constitutes many ecosystems
  • Biomass
  • dry weight (mass) of a living organism in a given area
  • units of measurement are kg/m2/year
  1. b) i) What are abiotic factors?
  • non-living components of the ecosystem
  1. ii) Explain how abiotic factors affect living organisms

Wind

  • this influences rate of water evaporation from organisms
  • therefore it affects distribution of organisms e.g. wind increases rate of transpiration and evaporation of water from the soil
  • wind is an agent of soil erosion, may break and uproot trees
  • may aid in the formation of sand dunes which can form habitats for some desert plants
  • wind disperses fruits, seeds, spores
  • wind forms waves in lakes and oceans which enhances aeration of water which replenishes oxygen concentration necessary for life
  • wind is an agent of pollination

Temperature

  • influences rate of enzyme action in photosynthesis and other metabolic reactions in plants and animals
  • organisms function within a narrow range of temperature
  • it affects distribution of organisms
  • changes in temperature affect rate of photosynthesis and biochemical reactions e.g. metabolism and enzyme reaction
  • temperature increases rate of transpiration

Light

  • needed by green plants and photosynthetic bacteria which are primary producers
  • animals depend on plants directly or indirectly for food
  • main source of light is the sun
  • light is necessary for synthesis of vitamin D in certain animals
  • some plants need light for flowering
  • seeds like lettuce need light for germination

Humidity

  • amount of water vapour held by the air
  • affects the rate at which water is lost from organisms body by evaporation and stomatal transpiration
  • when humidity is low the rate of transpiration increases
  • humidity influences distribution of organisms

PH

  • each plant requires a specific PH in which to grow (acidic, neutral or alkalinic)
  • pH affects enzyme reaction in metabolism

Salinity

  • some ions are needed for plant and animal nutrition
  • osmoregulation implants and animals is affected by salinity

Topography

  • altitude affects light, atmospheric pressure and light
  • Slope influences surface runoff, wind erosion, etc.
  • mountains affect distribution of organisms which differs in leeward side and windward side
  • mountains affect distribution of organisms which differ on lowlands and on highlands
  • mountains also form physical barriers to migration of organism and may cause isolation of species
  • background may offer camouflage to some organisms hence protection from enemies

Rainfall (water) or precipitation

  • amount and distribution of rainfall affect vegetation type
  • this consequently affects distribution of animals e.g. polar region water frozen hence only well adapted organisms survive
  • fewer organisms found in deserts where rainfall is less
  • Water is required for seed germination, raw material for photosynthesis, solvent for mineral salts. Provides turgidity for plant support, medium for transport, disperses fruits, seeds and spores

Pressure

  • the weight atmosphere exerts upon the earth
  • varies with altitude 9the higher the altitude the less the pressure
  • this variation implies change in density which directly means less oxygen for respiration and less carbon iv oxide for photosynthesis and this affects distribution of organisms

Mineral salts (trace elements)

  • these affect distribution of plants in the soil
  • plants thrive best where elements are available
  • Plants living in soil deficient in a particular element must have special methods of obtaining it.
  • They harbor nitrogen fixing bacteria and others have carnivorous habit
  • Plant distribution influences animal distribution
  1. c) i) What are biotic factors?
  • refers to living organisms in an area
  • biotic environment of an organism constitutes all organisms around it, which it relates or interacts with in various ways
  1. ii) Give examples of biotic factors affecting ecosystems
  • feeding relationships
  • predation
  • competition
  • diseases and pests
  • human activities
  1. d) Discuss how the various biotic factors affect living organisms
  1. Competition
  • organisms compete with one another for food, light, water, mates and shelter
  • organisms must live together for competition for available resources
  • those which cannot cope either structurally or behaviorally will migrate or die
  • those remaining, due to better adaptations will increase in population
  • competition between members of the same species is called intra-specific competition e.g. for mates
  • Competition between members of different species is inter specific competition e.g. for food and space.
  1. Predation
  • this is predator-prey relationship
  • predator feeds on prey hence both control the other’s population
  • Distribution of predator and prey is important as predator cannot survive without prey
  • It there is no predator the prey will increase in population beyond carrying capacity hence die due to environment depletion
  • Parasitism
  • an association where an organism lives in or on another living organism obtaining food(and other benefits) from it, causing harm to it (without necessary killing it)
  • parasites may kill host
  • they deprive host of food
  • make host weak by introducing diseases
  • make reproductive ability of host low hence host becomes susceptible to predation
  1. Diseases and parasites
  • make organisms weak and susceptible to predation
  • kill organisms and reduce their population

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Symbiotic

 

  • and association of organisms of different species where both benefit from the association i.e. there is mutual benefit
  1. Human activities
  • these are human factors which have an influence on the biosphere
  • examples are road construction, industrialization, deforestation, agriculture, pollution, poaching, fishing conservation, population control
  • affect ecosystem and balance of nature

 

Saprophytism

  • saprophytes are organisms which obtain organic matter in solution from dead and decaying tissues of plants and animals
  • they include saprophytic bacteria and fungi
  • they make available carbon, nitrogen and other elements form dead to living organisms
  • they are useful in recycling nutrients in nature

 

e)i) What is nitrogen cycle?

  • The process by which nitrogen in the air is made available plants and animals and eventually returns to the air.

 

  1. ii) Draw a simplified diagram representing the nitrogen cycle

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

iii) Describe the nitrogen cycle

  • during thunderstorms/lightning nitrogen gas combines with oxygen to form nitrogen oxides
  • nitrogen oxides dissolve in water to form nitric acid
  • acid is deposited in the soil by rain
  • nitric acid combines with chemical substances to form nitrates or nitric acid dissociates to form nitrates which are absorbed by plants
  • symbiotic bacteria (Rhizobium) which are found in root nodules of leguminous plants fix free nitrogen to nitrates
  • free living bacteria (clostridium and Azotobacter) fix nitrogen to nitrates
  • nostoc algae (Anabaema chlorella) fix nitrogen to nitrates
  • plants use nitrates to form plant proteins
  • animals feed on plants and convert plant proteins into animal proteins
  • plants and animals die and are decomposed by putrefying bacteria, fungi(saprophytes)
  • decomposing plants, animals and nitrogenous wastes release ammonia which is converted to nitrites by Nitrosomonas and nitrococcus bacteria

 

 

 

 

  • nitrites are converted to nitrates by nitrobacter bacteria
  • nitrates in the soil can be converted to free nitrogen (denitrification) by some fungi, pseudomonas and theobaccilus bacteria generally called denitrifying bacteria

 

  • Nitrogen in the atmosphere cannot be directly utilized by plants. State two ways by which this nitrogen is made available for plant use

 

  • fixation by microorganisms (Rhixobium, Axotobacter)
  • fixation by electrical discharge in atmosphere i.e. conversion by thunderstorm or lightning

 

 

  1. f) i) Describe how energy flows from the sun through the various trophic levels in an ecosystem

 

  • energy from the sun is trapped by green plants during photosynthesis, producing chemical energy9food or carbohydrates
  • green plants are producers and occupy the first trophic level
  • green plants are eaten by herbivores called primary producers as they occupy the second trophic level
  • herbivores are eaten by carnivores, secondary consumers, which occupy the third trophic level
  • when organisms 9plant and animals) die, fungi and bacteria which are saprophytic organisms feed on them thus causing them to decompose into simple substances e.g. mineral salts
  • these organisms are called decomposers and detrivores
  • decomposer feed on dead organic matter hence cause decomposition and decay which releases nutrients for plants, linking biotic and a biotic components
  • at all levels energy is lost through respiration

 

Give the reasons for loss of energy from one trophic level to another in a food chain

 

  • insufficient utilization of food resources(wastage) e.g by defalcation
  • through respiration
  • through excretion e.g. urination and sweating

Why are green plants referred to as primary producers in an ecosystem?

 

– They utilize the energy from the sun to manufacture food for themselves and for subsequent trophic level (consumers) and other organisms

 

  1. vi. Explain the following terms giving suitable examples

Food chain

  • a nutritional sequence between producers and consumers through which energy flows in a  straight line i.e. linear representation of feeding relationship between different organisms in an ecosystem
  • if one consumer or the producer is removed the food chain is broken
  • arrow points to the direction of energy flow e.g. green plant   herbivore   carnivore  decomposer

 

 

 

 

 

Food web

  • complex feeding relationship where a consumer feeds on more than one type of food while several herbivores feed on one type of plant
  • it is an interrelationship of many food chains
  • consumers are usually fewer than producers to ensure survival of both

 

 

Pyramid of numbers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • this is a diagrammatic representation of numbers of organisms at each trophic level in a food chain
  • usually there are more producers than consumers
  • hence producers     herbivores    carnivore
  • the reason for the pyramid is because herbivores feed on many plants (producers) as carnivores feed on many herbivores
  • sometimes this may not be true e.g. when many caterpillars feed on one tree or parasites on a herbivore
  • this gives an inverted pyramid of numbers

Pyramid of biomass

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • refers to diagrammatic representation total dry weight of organisms at different trophic levels in a food chain
  • producers have greater biomass than any level of consumers progressively
  • size of organisms in successive e trophic levels increases
  • amount of individuals decreases in successive levels

 

 

 

 

 

 

Account for the decrease of biomass in the successive trophic levels

  • fixed energy which supports living matter decreases at each successive trophic level since energy is lost by respiration and indigested (unconverted) materials hence less biomass supported at each level

 

  1. h) i) Describe the three characteristics of a population growth
  • increase in numbers
  • decrease in numbers/growth rate
  • change in numbers

 

Dispersion

  • spread or distribution of organisms in a habitat

 

Density

  • the number of individuals per unit area

 

  1. ii) Explain how the following methods are used to estimate population of organisms

quadrat method

  • identify the study area
  • throw or mark out the quadrat in the area of study at random
  • identify or label the various species of plants in the quadrat
  • count plants of each species
  • record the numbers
  • repeat the process
  • work out the average per quadrat for each species
  • calculate the total number of different species in the area or calculate the population for the total area of habitat

 

Line transect

  • a string is stretched along an identified area
  • all plants touching the string are counted

 

Belt transect

  • preliminary study of the study area to estimate size or make a sketch  map
  • two parallel lines (strings or ropes) running for a determined distance and width
  • count the number of organisms in the transect
  • calculate the area covered by the transect
  • calculate the number of organisms being investigated per unit area
  • repeat this process at least three times in other parts of the study area
  • find the mean number of organisms per unit area from all the belt transects
  • from this figure calculate the total population of the desired organisms in the study area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Capture-recapture method

  • e.g. grasshoppers or fish
  • capture the grasshoppers
  • count and mark using permanent ink
  • record
  • release and allow time
  • recapture and count the marked and unmarked
  • total population is equal to the number of marked and unmarked grasshoppers in the second sample multiplied by the number of marked grasshoppers in the first sample divided by number of grasshoppers marked in the second sample that were recaptured

 

  1. a) Describe the adaptations of plants to various habitats

 

  1. Xerophytes
  • grow in areas with scarcity of water
  • roots grow deeply and extensively (widely spread) to ensure access to water
  • thick succulent stems, roots and leaves for water storage
  • photosynthetic stems take place of leaves which would lose a lot of water
  • Leaves are needle-like (reduced to spines), scaly, have sunken stomata. Some have curled (rolled) leaves. Some have thick waxy cuticle, reduced number  of stomata to reduce water loss by transpiration
  • some shed leaves during dry season to reduce water loss
  • presence of thorns for protection
  • short life cycle to ensure survival
  • reversed stomatal rhythm

 

  1. Hyrophytes
  • grow in places with plenty of water(waterlogged)
  • aerenchyma a tissue (airspaces) and large intercellular spaces and long fibrous roots for buoyancy (floating in water)
  • poorly developed support tissues (sclerenchyma) because water provides the necessary support
  • upper epidermis of leaves have more stomata than lower epidermis for gaseous exchange or for increased rate of transpiration
  • poorly developed conducting tissues (xylem and phloem) because plants obtain water by diffusion

 

  • Mesophytes
  • grow in well watered soils (common plants)
  • no special adaptations, but depending on particular habitat, may have some adaptations
  • in forests they grow fast, tall to capture light. Have climbers while some are adapted to carry out photosynthesis in low light intensities (those that form undergrowth)
  • in places with adequate water they form broad leaves, thin cuticle and many stomata on both leaf surfaces

Causes and effects of air pollution

 

  • sulphur iv oxide, hydrogen sulphide, chlorine, oxides of nitrogen produced by industries, sewage, decomposing organic matter and fumes affect gaseous exchange, makes acid rain and damage plant leaves
  • aerosols, herbicides, insecticides (agrochemicals), paint spays, acaricides and CFC’s sprayed to control diseases, pests and weeds affect respiratory organs of animals. The chemicals are residual and persistent (not easily broken down) and bring depletion of the ozone layer
  • smoke and fumes produced in areas with heavy industries, motor vehicles, fires which burn fuel, oil, wood and coal cause carbon ii oxide, poisoning affect respiratory systems and affect visibility
  • particles in smoke and fumes settle on leaves and stop photosynthesis
  • carbon iv oxide causes green house effect which causes temperature inversion as a result of heating the lower layers of atmosphere
  • sound and noise produced incessantly by machines, aeroplanes and heavy vehicles affect hearing in animals
  • dust from cement factories, quarries, dust roads settles on leaves limiting photosynthesis
  • removal of vegetation interferes with carbon cycle
  • radio-active emissions from nuclear reactors, mines and bombs cause cancer, mutations and death.

 

Control of air pollution

  • use of lead free petrol in motor vehicles, air craft, aeroplanes and petroleum engines
  • uses of smokeless fuels and electricity
  • filtration, dissolution and use of chemicals to remove harmful gases
  • factories should be erected far away from residential areas

State the causes, effects and methods of controlling and  prop roots for support water pollution

Causes and effects

 

  • agrochemicals e.g. fertilizers cause eutrophication leading to increase in animal population
  • Silting makes water surfaces shallow and silt clogs stomata and gills of fish reducing rates of photosynthesis and gaseous exchange. It also leads to reduction of algae which causes reduction of consumers i.e. animal population
  • industrial and domestic wastes contain toxic materials which kill producers and other organism while oily substances in wastes may clog gills of fish and may change pH of water oxygen solubility is also reduced by oily surfaces
  • Untreated sewage and effluents where decomposition or organic matter in sewage reduces oxygen supply and sewage provides food for bacteria increasing their population and demand for oxygen thus depriving fish of oxygen.
  • Human feaces causes eutrophication, carbon IV oxide produced by decomposition of faecal matter changes pH of water interferes with photosynthesis and may clog fish gills or block light penetration which interferes with producers thereby decreasing productivity.
  • Dumping of chemicals from industries with toxic pollutants which kill organisms
  • Spillage of oil and chemicals block oxygen and kill organisms
  • Discharge of water from industries into water body where high temperatures reduce amount of oxygen in the water causing organism to suffocate and die
  • Untreated sewage may lead to outbreak of epidemics

 

Control of water pollution

-pollution caused by domestic effluents may be controlled by treating domestic waste, using biotechnology, banning the use of phosphate-based detergents, using plastic pipes instead of those made from lead, recycling gabbage, using biodegradable detergents.

Pollution caused by industrial waste may be controlled by treating/cooling industrial waste, carrying out environmental impact assessment before establishing industries

Oil spillage may be controlled by cleaning spilled oil biotechnology and penalizing the industry individual or companies which cause oil spills/water pollution

Pollution caused by agrochemicals may be controlled by using mechanical control of weeds, biological control of weeds and pests, biodegradable organic fertilizer herbicides, insecticides pesticides, organic farming educate farmers on the use of correct amount of agrochemicals

Causes and effects

 

  • Air pollutants e.g. sulphur IV oxide fumes form sulphuric acid with rain water. The acid rain alters soil pH therefore affecting plants that cannot tolerate acidic soil
  • most aerosols sprayed to control pests and diseases precipitate in the soil and are taken up by plants which make its concentration many times higher, increasing the toxicity in the plants which absorb them
  • petroleum products due to spillage by oil tankers making it impossible for plant roots to obtain oxygen in oil saturated soils, therefore plants are killed
  • agrochemicals and inorganic fertilizers contain heavy metals that are not used up by plants and eventually soil microorganisms cannot inhabit the soils
  • organic matter slows down, life ceases and soil becomes exhausted
  • community, household wastes and industrial wastes disposal is a major problem in big towns and cities. commodities packaged in metal tins, rubber, plastic containers, scrap metal, glass bottles, different types of paper are nuisance to the environment, rendering it useless for agricultural purposes

  • seed/ mesocarp has  air spaces thus light/buoyant to float hence carried by water
  • they have waterproof cover and tough pericarp protects seeds from getting soaked
  • fibrous and spongy mesocarp to easily float

 

Animal dispersal seeds

  • presence of hooks for attachment to animals thus carried to other parts
  • fruits are brightly coloured, succulent and scented to attract animals
  • seed coats are hard and resistant to digestive enzymes hence seeds are dropped away from mother plant
  • large in size or borne on clusters to be easily seen

 

Self dispersal/explosive

  • self opening seeds
  • they have  lines of weakness called sutures for violent opening thus scattering seeds away from parent plant
  1. a) i) Distinguish between external and internal fertilization in animals
  • in external fertilization fusion of the male and female gametes takes place outside the body of the female e.g. amphibians and fish
  • in internal fertilization union of gametes occurs inside the body of the female

 

 

  1. ii) State the advantages and disadvantages of external fertilization

Advantages

  • large numbers produced  therefore many offspring per breeding season
  • female does not suffer gestation stress
  • mother does not need to care for the young except in a few species
  • the surviving individuals are highly selected for better survival

Disadvantages

  • many predators surround the eggs before and after fertilization
  • fewer chances of fertilization/a lot of gametes wasted
  • embryo development at mercy of environment
  • large numbers of female gametes are required therefore female gets much exhausted

 

iii) State the advantages and disadvantages of internal fertilization

Disadvantages

  • number of gametes fewer hence less number of offspring
  • less adapted for sudden change of environment after birth
  • in mammals females suffer gestation stress

Advantages

  • more chances of fertilization
  • fewer predators of oval/fertilized egg protected in females body
  • stable internal environment
  • fewer gametes required

 

 

 

iii) Give a reason why it is necessary for frogs to lay many eggs

  • to increase chances of survival/fertilization

 

  1. iv) Compare external and internal fertilization
External Internal
  • occurs in water outside the bodies of animals
  • many eggs are laid
  • usually less contact between male and female
  • both fertilized eggs exposed to danger
  • occurs inside the body of the female animal
  • fewer eggs released from ovary
  • very close contact in form of copulation between male and female
  • Fertilized eggs are enclosed hence highly protected inside females’ body.

  • the process is favored by lower temperature
  • it contains sertoli cells which nourish sperms until they are mature

Epididymis

  • long and coiled for the purpose of sperm storage

Vas deferens

  • muscular
  • upon contraction pushes sperms out and allows ejaculation

Gametes

  • produced in large numbers to increase chances of fertilization
  • the sperms have a tail for swimming/large number of mitochondria to provide energy/allow swimming to reach the egg

Accessory glands

  • are seminal vesicle, Cowper’s gland and prostate gland
  • they produce seminal fluid to provide a medium/ nutrients for sperms to swim

 

iii) How is the sperm adapted to perform its function?

  • acrosomes contain enzymes to digest egg membrane
  • nucleus contains genetic material
  • mitochondria produce energy to move the tail back and forth
  • the lashing movement of the tail enables the sperm to move/propulsion in fluid medium towards the egg
  • it is streamlined for faster/easier movement/swimming to meet the egg

  1. ii) Describe how the various structures of the human female reproductive system are adapted to their function

Ovaries

  • have several graafian follicles that develop and burst open to release/produce mature ova
  • secretes sex hormones)oestrogen) which initiate/control development of secondary sexual characteristics
  • produce hormones oestrogen and progesterone which prepare the uterus for implantation and subsequent nourishment of the embryo

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oviducts (fallopian tube)

  • are thin narrow and tubular to increase flowing speed of semen containing sperms
  • are funnel shaped on the end next to ovary which enables them to receive the ovum
  • their lining contains cilia which propel the ovum towards the uterus
  • has peristaltic muscles that enable movement of zygote/ovum to the uterus for  implantation
  • is fairly long to increase surface area for fertilization

Uterus

  • is muscular for protection of developing embryo
  • has elastic wall that allows growth and development of foetus/embryo
  • has a highly vascularised endometrium that provides nutrients/gaseous exchange to developing embryo

Cervix

  • has valves that close the lower end of the uterus to ensure continued pregnancy during gestation period
  • is capable of dilating
  • has narrow entrance/neck-like entrance to uterus that enables quick swimming of sperms to uterus
  • has suction mechanism that draws up/pulls sperms into uterus
  • has a “W” shape that fits well with the glands of the penis to ensure sperms are deposited at the right point

Vagina

  • is elastic and muscular to enable good accommodation or penetration of the penis thus proper deposition of sperms and for easy parturition
  • allows menstrual flow
  • has sensitive labial walls which secrete/produce lubricating substances that ensure/enable/facilitate good coition

  • nucleus prominent but cytoplasm negligible
  • spherical
  • large
  • stationary
  • a lot of food stored in yolky cytoplasm
  • lacks acrosome
  • a lot of cytoplasm

 

 

 

  1. d) i) Explain the process of fertilization
  • a process whereby the egg and sperm are brought together and fuse to form a zygote
  • occurs in the fallopian tube after copulation
  • sperm head penetrates the outer coat of the ovum while the tail remains outside
  • penetration is due to reaction of acrosome
  • acrosome digests the vitelline membrane
  • thereafter a zygote is formed
  • zygote which is diploid undergoes rapid cell division to form a mass of cells called blastocyst
  • after fertilization a membrane forms around the ovum to prevent further entry of sperms
  • blastocyst eventually develops into an embryo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. i) Explain the process of implantation
  • this is the embedding and attaching of the embryo in the uterine wall/endometrium
  • implantation marks the beginning of pregnancy
  • sometimes implantation occurs in the oviduct wall which is abnormal and results in ectopic pregnancy which is fatal
  • the outer wall of the blastocyst develops fingerlike projections which project into the uterine wall for attachment
  • the projections are called villi
  • the villi and endometrium develop into an organ that is called the placenta
  • the embryo is attached to the placenta through a cord called the umbilical cord

Chorion

  • surrounds the embryo
  • has fingerlike projections that attach embryo to the uterus

 

Amnion

  • contains amniotic fluid
  • fluid surrounds embryo
  • protects embryo from mechanical injury by acting as shock absorbers
  • fluid also protects embryo from dehydration
  • distributes pressure equally over embryo

Yolk sac

  • surround the yolk
  • produces blood cells for embryo until its own liver is able to perform the task

Allantois

  • present only for a short time
  • removes and store waste material
  • it eventually becomes the umbilical cord

 

iii) Explain the events that take place to facilitate parturition

  • near birth the placenta produces less progesterone
  • oxytocin hormone is produced by posterior lobe of pituitary gland
  • because progesterone level has decreased the uterus becomes sensitive to oxytocin
  • oxytocin causes the contraction of the uterus (myometrium)
  • these contractions are called labour pains
  • just before parturition the head turns downwards
  • the contractions eventually push the baby through the vagina
  • amnion breaks and amniotic fluid is released
  • oxytocin dilates the cervix
  • foetus is expelled through cervix with head coming out first
  • finally the whole infant comes out
  • the umbilical cord is cut and the placenta is expelled as afterbirth

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. iv) State the reasons why later in pregnancy the ovary will b e removed without disturbing the pregnancy
  • corpus luteum in the ovary secretes progesterone which maintains pregnancy and development of foetus after conception
  • after four months pregnancy is maintained by progesterone from the placenta

Oxytocin

  • parturition
  • milk ejection

 

  1. g) i) What is menstruation?

– vaginal discharge due to disintegration of endometrium

 

  1. ii) Describe the role of hormones in the human menstrual cycle
  • it is controlled by sex hormones which are responsible  for the onset of secondary sexual characteristics and also control of the menstrual cycle
  • the onset is signaled by discharge of blood/menses 14 days following the start of menstruation
  • anterior lobe of pituitary gland secretes follicle stimulating hormone(FSH)
  • Follicle stimulating hormone causes graafian follicle to develop in the ovary. It also stimulates tissues of the ovary/wall  (theca) to secrete oestrogen
  • oestrogen causes repair/healing of uterine wall
  • oestrogen stimulates anterior lobe of pituitary  to  produce luteinising hormonge (LH)
  • LH causes ovulation. It also causes graafian follicle to change into corpus luteum. LH stimulates corpus luteum to secrete progesterone
  • Progesterone causes proliferation/thickening of uterine wall
  • Oesterogen/progesterone inhibits the production of FSH by anterior lobe of pituitary, thus no more follicles develop and oestrogen production reduces
  • In the next two weeks progesterone level rises and inhibits production of LH from anterior lobe of pituitary
  • The corpus lutetium stops secreting progesterone and menstruation occurs when the level of progesterone drops
  • Anterior lobe of pituitary starts secreting FSH again.

 

iii) What is menopause?

A-growth

B-no growth

C- moulting/ecdysis

  • seen in arthropods
  • growth in in arthropods is intermittent(takes place during some time only because their hard cuticles (exoskeleton) does not expand to cause growth
  • the cuticle must be shed off first to allow further growth
  • the shedding is called ecdysis or moulting
  • when moulting has taken place animal grows but growth stops when the exoskeleton hardens again

  • cambium cells divide to produce more cells on either side of the cambium
  • cells produced to the inside become secondary cambium
  • cells produced to the outside become secondary phloem
  • division of cambium cells occurs yearly producing new rings of secondary phloem and secondary xylem each year
  • intervascular cambium(cambium between vascular bundles) divide to form secondary parenchyma, thereby increasing growth of medullary rays
  • much more xylem is formed than phloem, thus pushing phloem and cambium ring outward
  • the rate of secondary growth is depended on seasons(rains) resulting in annual rings
  • cork cambium is located beneath epidermis ad is responsible for secondary thickening of the bark of perennial plants
  • cork cambium divides to form new cork(bark) tissues to accommodate increased growth on outside and secondary cortex on the inside

  • accelerate ripening of fruits
  • promote flowering
  • cause dormancy

 

iii) Explain apical dominance

  • a phenomenon whereby production of auxins by a growing apical bud of a shoot inhibits growth of lateral buds
  • this inhibition is due to high concentration of auxins (indoleacetic acid/IAA) in apical bud
  • removal of terminal/apical bud causes development and sprouting of several buds which later develop into branches
  • applied in pruning coffee, tea and hedges
  • this leads to more yield

    I WANT TO USE THIS OPPORTUNITY  TO SAY A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO Dr Ogberaese, My name is Leonard Shirin i am so happy to share this testimony on how Dr.Ogberaese  healed me from genital herpes. i was detected with genital herpes around 10th may 2019, and ever since that day i have been looking for a way to end this virus from my body, but the more i try, the more i was told there was no solution. Few months ago i saw a testimony of some people on how Dr Ogberaese   cure them from HERPES VIRUS, i also heard about it on media when a young lady also gave her testimony saying Dr Ogberaese cured her oral herpes. I was left with no other hope than to contact Dr Ogberaese and give him a try. I contacted him  and told him what i was going through. He said he could heal me, that he is going to send me a herbal medicine and He sent the medicine as he promised. I took this herbal medicine for 1 week and it was obvious that his medicine was for real, because the herpes started clearing from my body. Later at  the 2 week, i went for medical check up and i was surprised when my doctor told me he found no trace of the virus in me again. At first when he told me, i was so shock and still did not believed until he gave me my test result. to make my story short i am now free from herpes, after many months of sorrow and my sickness is gone, i thank God for leading me to this man, and i want to also lead you to him if you have any illness like HIV, HPV, hepatitis B, asthma, cancer, Diabetes, COLD SCORE,TOOTH ACHE  FIBROID and AUTISM.  You can email him on [email protected] or whats-app  him on +2348073818653.  visit him on his website:  https://dr-ogberaese-herbal-home.jimdosite.com

    Understanding COSC Validation and Its Importance in Horology
    COSC Validation and its Strict Standards
    Controle Officiel Suisse des Chronometres, or the Controle Officiel Suisse des Chronometres, is the official Swiss testing agency that verifies the accuracy and precision of wristwatches. COSC certification is a mark of superior craftsmanship and reliability in chronometry. Not all watch brands seek COSC accreditation, such as Hublot, which instead sticks to its proprietary strict standards with movements like the UNICO, reaching equivalent precision.

    The Science of Exact Chronometry
    The core mechanism of a mechanized timepiece involves the spring, which supplies energy as it loosens. This system, however, can be vulnerable to environmental factors that may influence its precision. COSC-certified mechanisms undergo strict testing—over 15 days in various conditions (5 positions, 3 temperatures)—to ensure their durability and reliability. The tests assess:

    Mean daily rate precision between -4 and +6 secs.
    Mean variation, highest variation rates, and effects of temperature variations.
    Why COSC Validation Is Important
    For watch fans and connoisseurs, a COSC-certified watch isn’t just a item of technology but a testament to lasting excellence and precision. It symbolizes a watch that:

    Provides outstanding dependability and accuracy.
    Ensures assurance of superiority across the entire construction of the timepiece.
    Is apt to maintain its value more effectively, making it a wise choice.
    Popular Timepiece Brands
    Several famous manufacturers prioritize COSC certification for their watches, including Rolex, Omega, Breitling, and Longines, among others. Longines, for instance, provides collections like the Archive and Soul, which highlight COSC-certified movements equipped with cutting-edge substances like silicone equilibrium suspensions to boost durability and efficiency.

    Historical Context and the Evolution of Timepieces
    The idea of the chronometer originates back to the need for exact chronometry for navigational at sea, highlighted by John Harrison’s work in the 18th cent. Since the formal establishment of COSC in 1973, the certification has become a standard for judging the precision of luxury watches, sustaining a legacy of excellence in watchmaking.

    Conclusion
    Owning a COSC-validated watch is more than an aesthetic choice; it’s a commitment to quality and accuracy. For those valuing precision above all, the COSC validation provides tranquility of mind, ensuring that each validated watch will function dependably under various circumstances. Whether for personal satisfaction or as an investment decision, COSC-accredited watches distinguish themselves in the world of horology, maintaining on a tradition of precise chronometry.

    레버리지스탁
    로드스탁과의 레버리지 스탁: 투자 전략의 신규 분야

    로드스탁에서 공급하는 레버리지 스탁은 증권 투자법의 한 방식으로, 큰 이익율을 목표로 하는 투자자들에게 매혹적인 선택입니다. 레버리지 사용을 이용하는 이 전략은 투자자들이 자신의 자본을 넘어서는 투자금을 투자할 수 있도록 함으로써, 증권 시장에서 더 큰 작용을 행사할 수 있는 기회를 제공합니다.

    레버리지 방식의 스탁의 원리
    레버리지 스탁은 일반적으로 투자금을 대여하여 사용하는 방법입니다. 사례를 들어, 100만 원의 자금으로 1,000만 원 상당의 증권을 구매할 수 있는데, 이는 투자자들이 기본 자본보다 훨씬 훨씬 더 많은 증권을 구매하여, 주식 가격이 올라갈 경우 해당하는 더욱 큰 수익을 얻을 수 있게 해줍니다. 그렇지만, 주식 가격이 떨어질 경우에는 그 피해 또한 크게 될 수 있으므로, 레버리지 사용을 이용할 때는 조심해야 합니다.

    투자 계획과 레버리지 사용
    레버리지는 특히 성장 잠재력이 상당한 기업에 투자할 때 도움이 됩니다. 이러한 회사에 큰 비율로 투입하면, 성공적일 경우 막대한 수입을 가져올 수 있지만, 그 반대의 경우 큰 리스크도 짊어져야 합니다. 그렇기 때문에, 투자하는 사람은 자신의 리스크 관리 능력을 가진 상장 분석을 통해 통해, 어떤 회사에 얼마만큼의 자금을 투입할지 선택해야 합니다.

    레버리지 사용의 장점과 위험 요소
    레버리지 방식의 스탁은 큰 수익을 약속하지만, 그만큼 높은 위험도 수반합니다. 주식 거래의 변동은 예측이 곤란하기 때문에, 레버리지 사용을 사용할 때는 언제나 상장 추세를 면밀히 살펴보고, 피해를 최소화하기 위해 수 있는 계획을 마련해야 합니다.

    맺음말: 세심한 선택이 필수입니다
    로드스탁에서 공급하는 레버리지 방식의 스탁은 효과적인 투자 도구이며, 적당히 활용하면 상당한 수익을 제공할 수 있습니다. 그렇지만 상당한 위험도 고려해야 하며, 투자 결정은 충분히 많은 정보와 신중한 고려 후에 실시되어야 합니다. 투자하는 사람의 금융 상황, 위험을 감수하는 능력, 그리고 장터 상황을 반영한 조화로운 투자 전략이 핵심입니다.

    можно ли разорвать контракт сво
    С началом СВО уже спустя полгода была объявлена первая волна мобилизации. При этом прошлая, в последний раз в России была аж в 1941 году, с началом Великой Отечественной Войны. Конечно же, желающих отправиться на фронт было не много, а потому люди стали искать способы не попасть на СВО, для чего стали покупать справки о болезнях, с которыми можно получить категорию Д. И все это стало возможным с даркнет сайтами, где можно найти практически все что угодно. Именно об этой отрасли темного интернета подробней и поговорим в этой статье.

    안전 프로토콜: 국가당국에서 적용한 높은 등급의 보안을 적용하고 있습니다.

    확실한 이익률 공급: 위험 요소를 줄여, 보다 한층 안전한 수익률을 제공하며 이에 따른 리포트를 공유합니다.

    제휴한 동반사: 골드리치는 공기업은 물론 금융계들 및 많은 협력사와 함께 걸어오고.

    해외선물이란?
    다양한 정보를 참고하세요.

    국외선물은 외국에서 거래되는 파생상품 중 하나로, 명시된 기초자산(예: 주식, 화폐, 상품 등)을 기초로 한 옵션 약정을 지칭합니다. 기본적으로 옵션은 특정 기초자산을 향후의 어떤 시기에 일정 가격에 매수하거나 매도할 수 있는 자격을 제공합니다. 외국선물옵션은 이러한 옵션 계약이 국외 시장에서 거래되는 것을 지칭합니다.

    국외선물은 크게 매수 옵션과 풋 옵션으로 구분됩니다. 콜 옵션은 명시된 기초자산을 미래에 정해진 금액에 사는 권리를 제공하는 반면, 매도 옵션은 특정 기초자산을 미래에 정해진 가격에 매도할 수 있는 권리를 제공합니다.

    옵션 계약에서는 미래의 명시된 일자에 (종료일이라 지칭되는) 정해진 금액에 기초자산을 사거나 팔 수 있는 권리를 보유하고 있습니다. 이러한 가격을 행사 금액이라고 하며, 만기일에는 해당 권리를 실행할지 여부를 판단할 수 있습니다. 따라서 옵션 계약은 투자자에게 향후의 가격 변화에 대한 안전장치나 이익 창출의 기회를 부여합니다.

    외국선물은 마켓 참가자들에게 다양한 투자 및 차익거래 기회를 제공, 환율, 상품, 주식 등 다양한 자산유형에 대한 옵션 계약을 포괄할 수 있습니다. 거래자는 풋 옵션을 통해 기초자산의 하락에 대한 안전장치를 받을 수 있고, 매수 옵션을 통해 상승장에서의 이익을 겨냥할 수 있습니다.

    국외선물 거래의 원리

    행사 가격(Exercise Price): 해외선물에서 실행 금액은 옵션 계약에 따라 지정된 금액으로 계약됩니다. 만기일에 이 가격을 기준으로 옵션을 실현할 수 있습니다.
    만료일(Expiration Date): 옵션 계약의 만료일은 옵션의 행사가 허용되지않는 최종 날짜를 의미합니다. 이 날짜 이후에는 옵션 계약이 만료되며, 더 이상 거래할 수 없습니다.
    풋 옵션(Put Option)과 콜 옵션(Call Option): 매도 옵션은 기초자산을 명시된 금액에 매도할 수 있는 권리를 제공하며, 매수 옵션은 기초자산을 명시된 금액에 사는 권리를 제공합니다.
    옵션료(Premium): 해외선물 거래에서는 옵션 계약에 대한 옵션료을 납부해야 합니다. 이는 옵션 계약에 대한 비용으로, 시장에서의 수요와 공급에 따라 변동됩니다.
    실행 방식(Exercise Strategy): 거래자는 만료일에 옵션을 행사할지 여부를 선택할 수 있습니다. 이는 시장 상황 및 거래 플랜에 따라 상이하며, 옵션 계약의 수익을 최대화하거나 손실을 감소하기 위해 판단됩니다.
    마켓 위험요인(Market Risk): 국외선물 거래는 시장의 변동성에 영향을 받습니다. 가격 변화이 기대치 못한 진로으로 발생할 경우 손실이 발생할 수 있으며, 이러한 마켓 위험요인를 최소화하기 위해 투자자는 전략을 구축하고 투자를 계획해야 합니다.
    골드리치와 함께하는 외국선물은 확실한 믿을만한 수 있는 운용을 위한 가장좋은 대안입니다. 고객님들의 투자를 뒷받침하고 안내하기 위해 우리는 최선을 기울이고 있습니다. 공동으로 더 나은 내일를 지향하여 전진하세요.
