specific bacterial strains promote plant growth and resistance to abiotic stress (NaCl).

BIOL112 Research Proposal (completed with your partners)

Purpose of a proposal

Writing research proposals is critical in science as it is an essential step in getting funding for carrying out projects. As a student, you may need to write a research proposal when you apply for summer research programs (e.g. LMU’s SURP program). As a graduate student, you may need to write a proposal to get funding or to get your thesis plan approved. In all cases, the research proposal is meant to persuade someone, be it a funding agency, supervisor, or academic institution, that your ideas are worthwhile to pursue.

A research proposal has three main ingredients:

The Issue (What problem does the research address?)
Research Design (How will the research be done?)
Benefit (Why the research should be done?)

In order to achieve this, the research proposal will make you:

THINK through your experiments
Provide intellectual CONTEXT
JUSTIFY your research

You have now obtained rhizosphere bacteria and have characterized them for some of the properties suggestive of plant growth promotion. In the coming weeks you will begin testing two of these strains on plants. There are two plant assays you will be doing (protocols on Brighspace). One of them is a petri dish assay to assess germination percentage of the native plant Chamissoniopsis ca. The 2nd assay uses an agricultural plant and a hydroponic method to assess the impact of your strains on overall plant growth. In this assignment, you will choose ONE of these assays to focus on and write a short proposal related to it. You can use the procedures provided to get the information for how to set up the experiment and what the controls are. However, you have the flexibility to determine, given what you know about the properties of your strains thus far, what abiotic stress you would like to apply in the assay. Key parts of the proposal include:

Overall goal
Experimental strategy to address question, resolve hypothesis, and/or accomplish task (outline relevant lab procedures).
Discuss positive and negative controls as appropriate.
Prediction of results if experimental outcomes are consistent with proposed hypothesis/question.
At least two references relevant to your project.

Turn in a 1-2 page (double spaced) write-up of your proposal using the format described below. In it you will include the above items in paragraph form, giving background and justification for your project, and describing in detail how you plan to carry out the experiment (based on the protocols provided on Brightspace), making sure you specify exactly what stress treatment you will be using and the concentration applied.

Proposal parts

The proposal should have the following sections:
I. Title
II. Background and Specific Aims

This section should present a concise review of the primary literature relevant to your proposed research efforts. You should begin with the basics of your research topic and then narrow the focus of those details that are especially pertinent to the proposed work.

Specifically, include the following in this section:

A couple of sentences related to the importance of plant growth promoting bacteria, especially in relationship to the abiotic stress you are focusing on. Make sure to cite appropriately in the text.
A couple of sentences outlining what you have already accomplished, including what plant your isolates came from, the soil used in the trap plant experiment, and the interesting properties these bacteria have that suggest they may be plant growth promoting.
You should end this section with a statement of the Specific Aims of your research. You want to briefly state what the hypothesis is that you are testing or the question(s) that you seek to answer and how you will you do this (e.g. with seed germination assay or plant growth promotion assay).

III. Methods and Predicted Results

The Research Design and Methods section contains a descriiption of the procedures you will use to test your questions. Describe your experiments in sufficient detail so that they could be repeated exactly. What abiotic stress are you testing and how is it being applied (e.g. what concentration?) What control experiments will you carry out? How will you measure or quantify your results (e.g. counting number seeds germinated or weighing dry weights)? How many replicates are you doing? Be thorough, but not excessive.

Based on what you’ve seen in the primary literature, explain what you expect to see and hope to show through your results. What specific results do you expect to obtain in order to conclude that your hypothesis is supported or question answered? How would you interpret results other than those you expect? This section is critical to convincing your readers that you have designed an experimental protocol that will lead to a successful test of your hypothesis, generating clearly interpretable data from which you can draw strong conclusions.

IV. Discussion/Significance

In light of the results you expect to obtain from your planned experiment, what conclusions would you draw from these data? Discuss the significance of your expected findings to your field of study. In this section you relate the results of your work to the general body of knowledge you described and assessed in the Introduction. In other words, here you come full circle, relating what your work has revealed to the state of knowledge when you began your project.

V. References

You need to give in text citations and have a Reference list. You should have at least three references relevant to your project cited in the proposal. The in-text citations should be in the format (author last name et al., date) e.g. (Chen et al., 2002). If it is a single author, it would be (Chen, 2002).

If you have put all your references in Zotero, you should be able to export the Bibliography quite readily and put them in the Reference section.

The purpose of this lab is to perform an ABO blood typing procedure using simulated blood samples in efforts to investigate and discuss the significance of ABO typing. Students will also investigate how the antigens and antibodies relate to and affect the results of the blood typing procedure.

The lecture recordings on Immunity and Virology will be helpful in understanding the concepts of antigens and antibodies. Students must understand what is meant by agglutination.

View the above YouTube clip on Virtual Blood Typing Lab:

When viewing this simulated blood tying lab, you will notice that directions are provided how to get into the computer link. You are not responsible for going into this computer link. Your responsibility is to view the video lab activity and answer the seven (7) questions at the end of this page.

Key Words

Agglutinins (antibodies): Antibodies found in the plasma of blood

Agglutinogens (antigens): Substances found on the surface of erythrocytes

Antisera: Serum that contains antibodies for one or more antigens

Blood transfusion: The transfer of whole blood from one individual to another

Erythrocytes: Red blood cells

Hemoglobin: A protein in the blood, primarily responsible for carrying oxygen from the lungs to the tissues of the body and carbon dioxide from the tissues of the body to the lungs

Leukocytes: White blood cells

Plasma: Fluid of the blood where red blood cells are suspended

Process of agglutination: Clumping of red blood cells as a result of reaction to specific antibody

Rh factor: One of the proteins on RBCs used to indicate whether the blood of two different people is compatible when mixed; such as the blood of a mother and her baby at birth

There are 4 different kinds of human blood, determined by the presence or absence of specific agglutinogens (antigens) on the surface of red blood cells (erythrocytes).

These antigens have been designated as A and B. Antibodies against antigens A or B begin to build up in the blood plasma shortly after birth, the levels peak at about 8 to 10 years of age, and the antibodies remain, in declining months, through-out the rest of a person’s life.

Blood type O, characterized by the absence of A and B agglutinogens, is the most common in the United States and is found in 45% of the population. Type A is the next frequency, and is found in 39%. The frequencies at which types B and AB occur are 12% and 4% respectively.

As noted in the figure below, people can receive blood transfusions of only certain blood types, depending on the type of blood they have. If incompatible blood types are mixed, erythrocyte destruction, agglutination and other problems can occur.

For example, if a person with Type B blood is transfused with Type A blood, the recipient’s anti-A antibodies will attack the incoming Type A erythrocytes. The Type A erythrocytes will be agglutinated, and hemoglobin will be released into the plasma. In addition, incoming anti-B antibodies of the Type A blood may also attack the Type B erythrocytes of the recipient, with similar results. This problem may not be serious, unless a large amount of blood is transfused.

Several drops of anti-serum are added to separate samples of blood.

If agglutination (clumping) occurs only in the suspension to which the anti-A serum was added, the blood type is A. If agglutination occurs only in the anti-B serum, the blood type is B. Agglutination in both serums indicates the blood type is AB. The absence of agglutination in any sample indicates the blood type is O

Microorganism Profile

Introduction
This project requires understanding and applying scientific knowledge that you acquire both inside and outside the microbiology classroom. You will construct a comprehensive profile of a microorganism assigned by the instructor. This microorganism is a pathogen that you may encounter in your nursing career. All written answers are expected to meet accepted grammar, syntax, and punctuation standards and follow APA format. Proper microbiology terminology is also likely. The completed APA paper will be submitted electronically via the Assignment Drop Box in Canvas. Total APA paper should be between 5 to 7 pages, including a title and reference page.

The Big Picture
As you progress through this course, you will acquire information sequential, topic-specific. Each topic will include information that is relevant to this assignment. For example, the knowledge you gain from the lesson on bacterial cell morphology will be applied to the first paragraph topic, Cell Morphology, and Growth Requirements. Your answers are expected to include information from sources beyond the textbook or classroom. Examples include peer-reviewed journal articles, daily interviews with clinicians who deal with microbes, personal experiences, and other reputable sources. You are expected to clearly understand the meaning of each topic before you construct your answer. For example, you are expected to know the importance of “epidemiology” and understand the topics connected to it. Don’t forget to read and understand the rubric before you start. Refer to it often – it will help guide you through the process.

Biology Assignment Help Evolutionary Biologist Profile

(This info can also be found in this file: ExtraCredit2022.pdf ExtraCredit2022.pdf – Alternative Formats )
Due date: May 2, 11:59 PM. Submit via TurnItIn link under the Homework tab.
Overview:
The purpose of this assignment is to give you insight into evolutionary biologists that are currently conducting research and how they wound up where they are. Because a lot of what you read in textbooks is about white men, this comes at the expense of underrepresented groups. The list that you will have to choose from consists of scientists who are women, trans, Hispanic/Latinx, disabled, LBGTQ , African American, Native American, gender non-conforming, or some combination of these.

Task:
Your assignment is to pick one of these scientists, learn about their academic history and research, and write a profile of them.

To pick your scientist:

Go to this google form: https://forms.gle/oDt5GhXCJZ8t2Me67
Enter your information.
Look through the list of scientists. The list just shows names. All of these names are taken from the DiversifyEEB list (https://diversifyeeb.com/). You can start there to look for more information on some of the scientists, e.g. if you want to profile a scientist who is Latinx, you may find that information there. You can also go to the scientists’ webpages to learn about them. (Note that not everyone on DiversifyEEB is on our list.)
When you have decided who you want to profile, select their name in the google form. Once you pick a person, you are committed to that person, so do a little research first to make sure that you can learn enough about them.
After you fill out the form, the person that you pick will no longer be available for another student to choose, so it is up to you to do a good job for that person.

Research your scientist:

Find your scientist’s webpage to begin to learn about their academic history and current research.
Look for your scientist’s C.V., which is like a resume for academics. This will tell you where they completed their degrees and what academic positions they have held. It will also give you information about their research history and publications. Not everyone will have their C.V. online—that’s okay, just learn as much as you can from their website(s) about these things.
Find recent publications from your scientist. Go to Google Scholar and find the two most highly cited publications and the two most recent publications from your scientist. Read these papers.

Product:
Using this information and any other sources you wish to draw from, write a 1-2 page (<500 word) scientific biography of your scientist. One way to think about this is as an introduction that you might read if this person were coming to the UH Biology and Biochemistry Department to give a talk. In this introduction, you will want to convey:

Your scientist’s academic and scientific background. Where and when did they receive their Ph.D.? Did they do post-doctoral research? Did they have other positions prior to their current position? What is their current position and how long have they been there? (Include as much of this information as you are able to find.)
What are the general fields and main themes of your scientist’s research?
What research are they most known for? This is likely reflected by their most cited publications and their website’s research statement.
What recent work is happening in your scientist’s lab? Base this on the recent publications and the website.
Include a Bibliography where you cite the references for the papers from the scientist that you read, list their website(s) that you used, and cite any other sources that you used.

**Note that all of these must be written in your own words and not copied from their website or publications. (TurnItIn will be used to confirm this.) Write in terms that non-specialists would understand.

**This is an individual project–you may not work with a group.

Marriage Com

dowry or bridewealth is sort of at all times exchanged  https://mailorderwife.org/  in societies that favour arranged marriages. Endogamy, the practice of marrying somebody from inside one’s own tribe or group, is the oldest social regulation of marriage. When the types of communication with outdoors teams are restricted, endogamous marriage is a pure consequence. Cultural pressures to marry within one’s social, financial, and ethnic group are nonetheless very strongly enforced in some societies. A study of 23,088 moms found that married mothers tend to get less sleep, spend less time on leisure, and do more house responsibilities than single mothers.

If this polygyny issue is managed (e.g., through a a number of regression mannequin), division of labor seems to be a significant predictor of postmarital residence. Thus, Murdock’s hypotheses concerning the relationships between the sexual division of labor and postmarital residence have been mainly right, although the actual relationships between those two groups of variables are more complicated than he expected. In some international locations a married person or couple advantages from various taxation benefits not obtainable to a single individual.

If you use this selection, you’ll be required to upload a duplicate of both partner’s identification and a duplicate of the premarital course provider completion certificate . In accordance with State of Florida Statute, any person who has been issued a Social Security number shall provide their social safety number during the marriage license utility process. [Copies of the social security card aren’t wanted, solely the social security card number.] Any person who is not a citizen of the U.S. might present either a Social Security number or an Alien Registration number, if one has been issued.

Marriage modifications us and makes us more grateful to the Lord. It helps us understand Him better. Sex is a powerful thing that’s solely to be in marriage. When you have intercourse with someone a piece of you is always with that individual. When two Christians become one flesh in intercourse there is something non secular that happens.

A contract made in due form of law, by which a free man and a free lady reciprocally have interaction to reside with one another during their joint lives, in the union which must exist between husband and wife.

The United Nations World Fertility Report of 2003 reviews that 89% of all folks get married before age forty-9. The p.c of ladies and men who marry earlier than age forty-nine drops to nearly 50% in some nations and reaches near one hundred% in other nations.

Biology Assignment Help e., the foods and beverages in your Spreadsheet Report). What were the three leading sources of protein in your dietary pattern?
b- When you are ready to make a behavior change, set a goal to improve your likelihood of success! SMART goals include five important characteristics:
Specific: Rather than trying to completely overhaul your lifestyle, focus on just one behavior at a time.
Measurable: Include a definite way to track your progress.
Achievable: To avoid discouragement, make sure the goal is realistic for you.
Relevant: Choose a goal that is worthwhile and in alignment with what is going on in your life right now.
Timed: Set a due date.
As a guide for format, here is a SMART goal related to protein intake:
By November 1st, I will incorporate at least 20 grams of protein into my breakfast. I will do this by including eggs, Greek yogurt, and/or quinoa with breakfast each day. I will track my progress using NutritionCalc Plus.
You can see that this goal is specific (focuses on one behavior change), measurable (grams of protein at breakfast), achievable (it is feasible to add protein-rich foods at breakfast), relevant (it would help me to meet my overall protein RDA throughout the day and support my weight management program), and timed (due date is November 1st).
After you have analyzed your dietary data, identify an area related to protein that could use some improvement. For example, many college students would benefit from including more plant sources of protein. Think of a SMART goal for yourself that would modify your intake of protein. Make it relevant for you.
1. SPECIFIC: What is one specific behavior that you could change to improve your intake of protein?
2. MEASURABLE: How could you measure this behavior?
3. ACHIEVABLE: What practical strategies will you use to achieve your goal?
4. RELEVANT: Describe how this behavior change goal is worthwhile and in alignment with what is going on in your life right now.
5. TIMED: By what date would you like to achieve your behavior change?

We can begin to understand our individual role in society’s energy consumption by analyzing the largest categories of energy

We can begin to understand our individual role in society’s energy consumption by analyzing the largest categories of energy usage, such as that used in our homes. In this lab you will calculate your home energy consumption by using an online calculator developed by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Understand that no model can determine your home’s energy usage exactly, nor is that necessary. At this point, you are looking for an estimate that will reflect the magnitude of your consumption. You will also want to determine in what areas you should focus your energy reduction efforts. Because we are interested in performing a proper scientific analysis, you will need to replicate your analysis in order to make conclusions on a broader scale. And of course, you need a hypothesis to test. Just as many scientists do, you will derive your hypothesis from information in the current scientific literature.

To begin, download the Lab Worksheet attached in the link. Complete the lab worksheet and submit it by the due date.

Biology discussion questions

I have discussion questions for biology
The book: https://u1lib.org/book/2203074/d66daa
* please be sure to do the work correctly because it is very important thank youSome questions to help you get started; feel free to discuss anything from the book that interested you!!Have you tried to explain science to people with no science education? How do you approach this challenge? How do you prevent the kinds of misconceptions that Henrietta’s family were left with?The first mention of Henrietta Lacks’ family says that they refused to give a postmortem sample of her tissues and were angry about not receiving any financial compensation. Did this surprise you, given that the introduction discusses how important these cells have been?Why did so few books correctly name Henrietta Lacks? Why did they try to include her name and information?Prologue:The articles in Ebony and Jet found by Rebecca Skloot said that the Lacks family had only recently learned that her cells were still alive, 25 years after Henrietta’s death. They then understood that she was being studied, but not why. How do you think these experiences contributed to the family’s outlook on medicine and science?Ch. 1:Why did David Lacks take Henrietta to the public wards at Johns Hopkins instead of a closer hospital?What did Henrietta’s first doctor assume the source of the lump on her cervix was? What bias did this show?Based on Henrietta’s medical history, what can you infer about her life and personality? How would you describe her feelings about doctors?Ch. 2:What are the connotations of the term “home-house?” What does this term suggest about the values of the Lacks family?Compare the medical terms describing Elsie’s condition with the terms used by Henrietta’s friends and family. What are the connotations of the two sets of terms?Ch. 3:How did doctors justify using patients in public hospital wards as medical research subjects without obtaining their consent or offering them financial compensation? Do you agree or disagree with their reasoning?Analyze the consent statement that Henrietta signed (p. 31). Based on this statement, do you believe TeLinde and Gey had the right to obtain a sample from her cervix to use in their research?Do you think Henrietta would have given explicit consent to have a tissue sample used in medical research if she had been asked? Do you think she would have understood what was being asked of her? Explain your answers.How informed should consent be? The standard is to write consent forms at a fourth grade reading level. Do you think that level is correct and appropriate? Why?Were cells taken only from black patients? Were black patients generally treated differently from white patients in the early 1950s?Ch. 4:Gey chose to give away samples of HeLa to his colleagues almost immediately. Do you think this was a good decision?What is the implication of the author’s decision to use the term “birth” to describe the initial growth of HeLa cells?Ch. 5:Why did Henrietta and Day decide to place Elsie in the Hospital for the Negro Insane?Why do you think Henrietta initially chose not to tell people about her cancer diagnosis? What does this decision suggest about Henrietta’s personality?What important information did Henrietta’s doctor fail to give her before starting her cancer treatment? How did she react when this information was eventually shared with her?Ch. 6:What do the Tuskegee Syphilis Study and the Mississippi Appendectomies suggest about the history of African Americans and medicine?What questions does Deborah have about her mother?Ch. 7:Give an example of propaganda that was used to fuel the public’s fear and distrust of tissue culture.What details suggest that Carrel’s claims about the immortal cell line were not scientifically sound? Ch. 8:How did Henrietta’s doctors react to her intuitive conviction that the cancer was spreading inside her?What does the use of the term “miserable specimen” by Henrietta’s doctors reveal about their attitude toward her?Do you think Gey really met with Henrietta? Why?Ch. 9:Compare and contrast the Turner Station that Skloot visited in 1999 with the Turner Station that Henrietta experienced as a young woman.Ch. 10:Cootie seems to know and understand a little bit about HeLa cells, but he believes that Henrietta’s spirit is still present in her cells. What does Cootie think about the reason that HeLa cells were used to develop a polio vaccine?Ch. 11:Why did doctors stop giving Henrietta blood transfusions? What did Henrietta’s friends and family do when they found out that she needed blood? Why do you think they were willing to sacrifice to help her?What was Henrietta’s final request, and what does that tell you about her?

(Organic Chicken vs The Store Chicken) – presentation (PowerPoint and script) 30 minutes long – research journal

(Organic Chicken vs The Store Chicken) Presentation You will need to submit your presentation and your research journal SEPERATELY on Canvas. You will be allotted 30 minutes ONLY to present your work. Comparison- A comparison topic will require you to have at least two different things to compare in your work. Once you have decided what two things you are going to compare you will then pose a scientific question that you will aim to begin uncovering with your work. It would help you if you began researching some background information on your topic to help you form this question. You will then work at answering your question by comparing your two items and applying the background knowledge you have been learning. Note any important differences between your two items, why these findings may be relevant to us today, and what may be the cause of these differences, etc. You do not need to do a deep dive but at least give us basic information so that the audience can understand why they should care and have enough information to follow your presentation. You will then use what you have learned in this program to apply histological or cytological techniques to help you uncover data in an attempt to aid you in answering a bit of your question. Please refer to the provided PowerPoint on how to follow the scientific method as well as find other tips. Some good questions to consider if using an organism is does the difference cause a change in their physiology? If so, is this change beneficial or harmful to the organism? Of if you follow the below example you may discuss if you found any microorganisms in the non-organic make-up but none in the organic make-up. You could then look up how these microorganisms may be harmful to the body and what the implications of your findings are. For this option you will also need to properly document in your research journal your hypothesis, methods, variables, all of your trials and their associated results. You will also need to talk your audience through these aspects. Additionally, you must provide three pictures to use as evidence of your work. If you are using special staining you will need to perform three special stains and provide pictures and protocols for each. Things to include in your special project: 1. Project must include 4 references of at least two different types. Some examples of different types of sources include: internet, literature, media, demonstrations, and classroom resources. These references must be cited in MLA format. 2. A research journal that is organized and detailed explaining your hypothesis, variables, methods, and results. 3. Basic background information your audience would need to know in order to understand your project. These include a description of what you are comparing, or what the prior techniques consisted of before you applied your research technique. 4. At least three pictures of your work. As well if you are running special stains, three pictures, and three protocols. Research journals: You may purchase a small journal or use your computer to record your observations throughout this process. ON the front page of your journal create a table of contents to help keep your organized as you begin working on your project. Additionally, name your project something fun that summarizes the entire idea of your special project. You will want to include this title not only on your presentation, but also on the same area as your name on your research journal. You will need to include stating your hypothesis, and providing background information as to why you chose your topic and why you believe your experiment will turn out this way. Additionally, list your variables and why you chose them. List your methods for each trial and highlight what is being changed for each one as your work through your project. Write down what your results were and write troubleshooting ideas after observing your results. Lastly, explain what you would do differently if you had the chance to run this again, what future directions you believe this work could go towards, and the implications of your work. PowerPoint: You must create a PowerPoint that is well detailed with enough background information for your audience to follow along as well as fully understand what you were trying to show with your work. Note, if you go over the thirty minutes you will be interrupted and only be graded on what you presented on during your thirty minutes. Please review the provided example PowerPoint on Canvas as well as the PowerPoint giving you pointers on how to design a well-organized and detailed scientific PowerPoint. Some aspects to include in your PowerPoint: • Title slide • Background slide • Mapping slide • Depending on your category; hypothesis, methods, variables, etc. • Data slide • Implications slide • Sources *Note: these are not the only aspects you will want to include in your PowerPoint but this is a good outline of what to follow in terms of your special project portion.
Hello, please pay attention to everything it is so important and I will need from you in the end 3 things ( PowerPoint and script or handout 30 minutes long and research journal) and don’t forget to put some of the microscopic pictures in the PowerPoint, please. Thank you

Biology Question

Introduction: Darwinius masillae
The Discovery
On May 19, 2009, a team led by paleontologist Jørn Hurum of the Natural History Museum in Oslo Norway announced a significant new fossil discovery to the world. Nicknamed “Ida” after Hurum’s daughter, the team argued that the fossil was a type specimen, the individual fossil used to describe a species new to science (also called a holotype). The team named the new species Darwinius masillae, because the discovery was made in the 200th anniversary year of Charles Darwin’s birth.
Ida was not a typical fossil discovery. The specimen had actually been discovered by a private collector much earlier, in 1983, near Messel Germany. Her remains had been split into two separate slabs, which remained separate until 2000. The collector kept the main part (known as “Slab A”), while the second part (“Slab B”) was sold to the Wyoming Dinosaur Center in the United States. The two slabs are shown here:

The Fossil
The parts of skeleton B that are outside of the dashed lines were fabricated so the fossil would look complete when it was displayed. This is normal for fossil casts (replicas) but is not normally done with real fossils unless they are relatively worthless. In spite of the Plate B fabrication, Ida is a remarkable and very important fossil for two reasons: how complete the specimen is and the fossil’s antiquity. With 95% of the skeleton, she represents one of the most complete fossils of her age ever found. Better preservation of a more complete fossil always gives scientists more information– so this is really important. Ida’s remains are so well preserved because of the way she became fossilized (her taphonomy). She was found near an ancient volcanic lake called a maar that was formed by an explosion when hot magma underneath the earth’s surface came in contact with a water table. The lake had no rivers feeding into it, so it had very little oxygen, which you may remember from our Explorations reading is a condition that creates exceptional preservation potential for fossils. She is so well preserved that her last meal (fruit) was preserved and fossilized in her gut. How old is Ida? She comes from the Eocene epoch (55-34 mya) and is dated to 47 million years old, meaning she existed early in primate evolution. Her fossil was dated by taking a core sample from the volcanic rocks in the Messel pit that formed the lake.
Ida is small, with her tail she measures about 23 inches (58 centimeters) long and her body is only 9 inches long and as you can see, her legs are longer than her arms, suggesting that leaping was a normal mode of locomotion for her. This hypothesis is based on analogy (comparison with the skeletal structures of living species). Likewise, comparison to living primates’ dentition supports the evidence from her stomach contents and suggests she was a frugivore. Her large eye orbits probably indicate a nocturnal life style. Scientists assigned her sex as female based on the fact that she had no baculum, the male penile bone found in primates (though not in humans), and other skeletal features. Several other important traits are also very clear: Ida has five digits on her hands and feet, long fingers and toes and nails instead of claws on all of her digits. Importantly, she has fully opposable thumbs and toes on her hands and feet. She also had unerupted molars pushing out her baby teeth, so she was a juvenile, perhaps about 9 months of age. Finally, her cause of death is unknown, but it is clear she has a broken wrist. One possible scenario is that her broken wrist prevented her from climbing in trees and being closer to the ground may have caused her to be exposed to gasses from the lake, which could have caused her to lose consciousness and drown.
Ida’s Taxonomic Significance
Where does Ida belong in the early primate family tree? How does her discovery change our understanding of this period in evolutionary history? The discovery of Darwinius masillae has had important significance for our understanding of early primate evolution. In addition to analogy (comparison to living species), the fossil record is also interpreted using comparison to the existing fossil record. The first thing to do with a fossil discovery like Ida is to determine which living taxa she is affiliated with. Many of her characteristics support that Ida is a primate (her limb structure, skull features, dentition, grasping hands, opposable digits) and there is no scientific debate on this point.
Once her general placement in primates is secure, the next question is which living primates does she resembles most closely. Ida is missing several key characteristics that are found among living lemurs and lorises. For example, Ida lacks a dental comb and doesn’t have a grooming claw on her hands and feet– both of these are traits found in living lemur species, as you learned in the last module. She also has a shorter snout than living lemurs and a tarsus (an ankle bone– the bone that tarsiers get their name from) that appears more like haplorhines than lemurs or lorises. Along with her highly opposable thumbs (again, more associated with living monkeys), these traits have led some to interpret Ida as a potential ancestor for the living haplorhines. Ida’s discoverers argued that her fossil may represent a transition from more primitive strepsirrhine ancestors to the haplorhine lineage (Franzen et al 2009). Once a fossil discovery is published and interpreted by its discoverers, their claims are evaluated and responded to by scholars with relevant expertise. It is quite normal for discussion and debate to occur around taxonomic assignment of a new species, especially when a new species is monotypic (there is only a single specimen that assignment is based on).
In a 2009 article coauthored with Hurum, Franzen et al argue that the ancient primate group adapiforms that many scholars identify as likely ancestral to living strepsirrhines, should instead be seen as a transitional group between haplorhines and strepsirrhines (Franzen et al 2009). Stony Brook University scholar Eric Seiffert and colleagues disagree with these interpretations,arguing that Franzen and his colleagues analyzed too few traits in their paper. Seffert and colleagues examined 360 morphological traits across 117 species of extant and extinct primates, and argue that Ida is more closely related to living lemurs and lorises, but should be put on a side branch, along with another recently discovered 37 mya primate, Afradapis (Seiffert et al 2009). According to Seiffert’s analysis, the similarities between Ida and living haplorhines are not because they are ancestral to them, but rather due to convergent evolution, where organisms not closely related evolve similar characteristics due to occupying similar environmental niches. This is a phylogenetic tree representing Seiffert’s interpretation:

Another critical assessment of Franzen et al was offered by Williams et al (2010), who also assert that Darwinius is better seen as basal (meaning a group that gave rise to a later lineage) to strepsirrhines and not haplorhines, as the discoverers claimed. Darwinius’ discoverer Jørn Hurum has said he is open to the possibility that Ida is on the strepsirrhine side of our primate family, but like so many taxonomic debates this one may never actually get resolved. Additional evidence is critical but given the ancient time frame, this evidence will be not be easy to come by and new discoveries, precious as they are, will no doubt complicate the picture further even as our understanding of the evolutionary past improves. Evolution is complicated and a better sample of fossils usually leads us in that direction!

Assignment
As you learned in your Explorations reading this week, fossils are historically the most important line of evidence about our distant past, but they can be extremely difficult to find. Important fossil discoveries like Ida still make headlines in magazines and newspapers for good reason. As the fossil record grows, so too does our understanding of the past and important new discoveries can rewrite our understanding of the evolutionary past.
For this assignment, you are to find an important fossil discovery that paleontologists or paleoanthropologists have made after the year 2000. Your fossil must be a hominin. Hominins are defined as species regarded as human, directly ancestral to humans, or very closely related to humans. Generally speaking, hominins are bipedal(walk on two legs). You can think of the story of Darwinius massilae above as a model for your assignment, though note that Darwiniius is not a hominin. I was also trying to illustrate some important concepts for this module, so you do not need to be quite as thorough as I was.
Start by googling important fossil discoveries and find one you think is interesting and important. Remember, your fossil must be a hominin and it must have been discovered since the year 2000. After you have chosen a fossil discovery, cover the following in a minimum of 800 words:
The fossil’s scientific name and popular name (if it has one)
A short account of the discovery (when, where, by whom, etc)
A description of the fossil remains, including the techniques used to date it
A photo of the fossil specimen(s)
A description of the important traits the fossil shows and their relationship to the fossil record and living species
An assessment of the impact of the discovery on our knowledge of evolution (including discussion and debate about the fossil’s taxonomic place)
An image of a phylogeny/family tree showing where (at least some) scholars have placed your fossil discovery
A list of your sources (not included in the word total)

Make sure to include all of these requirements in your submission. Your assignment should be written in essay form and not submitted as a list or set of bullet points.
Like my Darwinius description, your source list should include both popular science sources and scientific articles. My main popular science article was from National Geographic and was written for 6-12th graders. National Geographic is a trustworthy internet source, but I still double-checked my facts against the much more thorough Wikipedia page on Darwinius. This assignment is designed for you to learn about new discoveries through popular media, including the internet, so in this case using a Wikipedia for this assignment is fine. While Wikipedia pages vary in quality and detail, they are often useful and for fossil discoveries can help lead you to additional sources, including academic ones. Your assignment should utilize at least 3 sources, but more is fine. Please use APA citations and references. Remember, if you don’t remember how to do APA citations and references, you can find more information here.
Please type up your assignment, double space the document and submit it as a PDF or Word document with a total word count at the bottom of your paper that looks like this:
