Help me study for my Biology class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.
Exercise 5: The Animal Kingdom: or Even if it looks like blob of jelly…..it may still be an animal! If someone were to ask you what a giraffe looks like, you would most likely be able to bring an image to mind, and then describe it to the person asking the question. Your mental image of the giraffe would most likely be one that was visual; we human tend to rely on our eyes and the things we can see directly. But these direct visual observations are not the only ones that are available to us when we describe an organism. We could also describe an organism in terms of the way it feels, the way it smells or the sounds that it makes. But in the end, we all think we know what an animal looks like and how we would identify one. It turns out, that identification of animals, and many other organisms is not necessarily straightforward. In the last exercise you spent time finding and identifying organisms that are invisible to our naked eyes and which fell into a variety of different classification categories. In this lab exercise, you will find that even when visible, and when called by a name that we think of as familiar, it is not just how something looks on the outside that determines how it is classified. INTRODUCTION Look at the two organisms in the pictures below. As a biologist, it would be your job to identify and classify organisms such as these. But where would you start? Could you tell simply based on their looks whether these would be classified as plant, animal, fungus
