Animal Adaptations Assignment - May 29th 2017, 03:34 PM

Sorry for all these recent assignment questions, but this is the only website I seem to have any luck with aha. I really appreciate the help I've gotten so far, so thank you! <3

I have another Animal Anatomy and Physiology assignment, this one is about animal adaptations. It's a group presentation and is due next Thursday (1st June). I mainly need help finding reliable websites which have relevant information. This is what I need for my part...

The first part is about the Bactrian Camel and the Nile Crocodile. I need to find the following information for each animal...
  • Circulatory adaptations
  • Reproductive adaptations
  • Sensory adaptations


The second part is about respiratory adaptations. I need to find the following information for a whale...
  • Permanent and temporary methods of respiration (I honestly don't know what this means, I missed half the lecture because I was in an exam)
  • Red blood cell counts

There is more but any help with the above would help get me off to a good start.

Hey there, I'm glad you find great use in the links I provided! I'd love to help you out again, I hope these links provide useful information for you! And good luck on your group presentation!

Bactrian Camels
- Circulatory adaptions:
https://asknature.org/strategy/blood.../#.WSzdjxgrLrc Asknature.org is provided by the Biomimicry Institue, and they also provide their citation at the end.
http://www.nationalgeographic.com/an...actrian-camel/ This article includes some information on their environmental adaptions in general and also has some fun facts on the Bactrian Camel that you might find useful as part of the project.
- Reproductive adaptions: I believe I linked you to this same website on your questions about prairie dogs, so you know you can rely on it again! There's some information on their reproduction, behavior, communication, etc with references.
http://www.veterinaryworld.org/Vol.2...in%20Camel.pdf this is a PDF pulled from a Veterinary World newsletter or something of the sorts, it's about 3 pages on their reproduction and I apologize in advance if it might be a little repetitive from the previous link (I'm too tired to check ).
- Sensory adaptions:
http://www.pnas.org/content/113/40/11342.full.pdf it was a little tough trying to decide if this article contained enough information to lead to the next one I'm linking you to, but I decided that it should be fine. On the first page of the PDF, it discusses the type of sensory system a camel has so I will link you to more information on that kind of system. Also, the website is by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the US so I'm not worried about the reliability, just the little paragraph they used to tie camels with the type of sensory system.
http://nba.uth.tmc.edu/neuroscience/s2/chapter02.html This article talks about the sensory system that camels have, which is provided by the University of Texas and the McGovern Medical School.

Nile Crocodile
- Circulatory adaptions : http://ielc.libguides.com/content.ph...21&sid=5475044 Provided by the San Diego Global Library, under 'Other Characteristics, there's information on their circulatory system, their sense of hearing and vision, and their respiratory system among other possibly useful information.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3628916/ Here's another reliable website by the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health which goes more into depth on their pulmonary anatomy.
- Reproductive adaptions :
http://ielc.libguides.com/content.ph...21&sid=5475047 Another article by the San Diego Global Library, they have key points from finding a mate, their kind of reproduction, and how they nest.
https://www.iucncsg.org/365_docs/att...i-4343c282.pdf More information on their reproductive parts which you may or may not find useful.
- Sensory adaptions:
https://www.britannica.com/science/olfactory-bulb Crocodiles have the Olfactory lobes in their brain which helps with their sense of smell. This article explains the use of the olfactory lobes/"bulbs".
https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0702101506.htm More information on their multi-sensory organs.

Whales
- Respiratory:
http://www.whalesforever.com/whale-a...spiration.html Explains how they breathe.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6369460 Another article based on the respiratory system of whales, kind of bounces off of the first link so I'm sorry if there isn't any new information, I just like to provide at least 2 links.
- Permanent and temporary methods of respiration: I'm sure this means the differences of how they breathe underwater vs. coming up for air, hence permanent and temporary. They have to some how figure out how to adapt to the pressure and altitude from underwater to above water. http://scienceline.ucsb.edu/getkey.php?key=1009 This focuses on how some whales breathe longer than other whales.
- Red blood cell counts:
http://whale.wheelock.edu/archives/ask00/0453.html Explains the difference between whale blood and human blood so that you might understand it easier. Provides references. (Also has a small paragraph on their respiratory system).
http://www.whalefacts.org/whale-adaptations/ Under 'Lungs' provides some more information on their red blood cells.

I really hope all the information I provided leads to a successful group presentation! Good luck!
