Zoology

Zoologie is the brainch o biology whilk studies the ainimal kinrick, sic as the structur, embryology, evolution, clessification, habits, an distribution o aw ainimals, baith tae the fore an extinct, an hou thay interact wi thair ecoseestems. The wird is derived frae Auncient Greek ζῷον, zōion, i.e. "ainimal" an λόγος, logos, i.e. "kennin, study". Semmlin twathry sinthery fiels an makkin uiss o mony methodologies, Zoology haes haed a langsome oncome ower mony yeir until the meantime. In the bygane, the furst thochts tae the fore anent zoology hae been gaen us bi Aristotle. The mony ettlins ...

Animals

Ainimals is multicellular, eukaryotic organisms o the kinrick Animalia. Aw ainimals are motile, meanin thay can muiv spontaneously an independently, at some pynt in thair lifes. Thair body plan hidnerly becomes fixed as thay develop, tho some unnergang a process o metamorphosis later on in thair lifes. Aw ainimals is heterotrophs: thay maun ingest ither organisms or thair products for sustenance. Maist kent ainimal phyla appeared in the fossil record as marine species in the Cambrian explosion, aboot 542 million year syne. Ainimals is dealt intae sindry sub-groups, some o whilk is: vertebr ...

Thermoregulation

Thermoregulation is the ability o an organism tae keep its body temperatur within certain boondaries, even when the surroondin temperatur is very different. A thermoconformin organism, bi contrast, simply adopts the surroondin temperatur as its ain body temperatur, thus avoidin the need for internal thermoregulation. The internal thermoregulation process is ane aspect o homeostasis: a state o dynamic stability in an organisms internal condeetions, maintained far frae equilibrium wi its environment.

Animal locomotion

Ainimal locomotion, in ethology, is ony o a variety o muivements or methods that ainimals uise tae muive frae ane place tae anither. Some modes o locomotion are sel-propelled, e.g., runnin, soummin, jimpin, fleein, hoppin, soarin an glidin.

                                     

Cunyie species

The term Cunyie species means a species o ainimal or ither livin thing that is mair important nor whit a body wad dout gien thar no ower mony o thaim. The concep is ower important in the reconsideration o roles in ecosystems. The concep wis cleckit bi Robert Paine.

                                     

Invertebrate

Invertebrates is ony animal species that disnae hae nor develop a vertebral column, derived frae the notochord. Exemples o invertebrates incluid the molluscs, sic as seechs an snails, arthropods, consistin o arachnids, crustaceans an insects, an cnidarians lik coral an loch-livers, amang mony mair taxa.

                                     

Roslin Institute

The Roslin Institute is an ainimal sciences resairch institute at Easter Bush, Midlowden, Scotland, pairt o the Varsity o Edinburgh, that is sponsored bi the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.

                                     

Seashell

A seashell or sea shell, kent simply as a shell an aw, is a haurd, pertective ooter layer creatit bi an ainimal that leeves in the sea. The shell is pairt o the bouk o the ainimal. Empie seashells are eften foond washed up on beaches bi beachcombers. The shells are empie acause the ainimal haes deed an the saft pairts hae been eaten bi anither ainimal or hae rotted oot.

                                     

Zoo

A zoo is a facility in which ainimals are confined within enclosurs, displayed tae the public, an in which thay mey be bred an aw.
