INFO SHEET - Classifying and identifying ferns – Scientists currently consider that New Zealand has approximately 230 species of fern in about 50 different genera. Botanists document the characteristics of these ferns for classification and identification.
Article - Native bird adaptations. New Zealand separated from Gondwana around 65 million years ago. Due to the geographical isolation and a lack of ground-dwelling predators, our birds evolved unique characteristics. Flight was not required to escape predators, so birds such as the kiwi, takahē and (now extinct) moa adapted to these conditions by developing a large body size and loss of flight.
I am addicted to being in the middle of a 30 acre Sunflower Field, life among the large heads of petals is amazing. This Farm is located 5 miles West of Delta, Colorado. Pollination is the process by which pollen is transferred from the anther (male part) to the stigma (female part) of the plant, thereby enabling fertilization and reproduction. It is unique to the angiosperms, the flower-bearing plants.
Periodic table of elements - The periodic table of elements puts all the known elements into groups with similar properties. This makes it an important tool for chemists, nanotechnologists and other scientists. If you get to understand the periodic table, and learn to use it, you’ll be able to predict how chemicals will behave.
