Which of the following is responsible for the overall integration of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)? Which of the following is responsible for the overall integration of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)? brain stem hypothalamus frontal lobe of the cerebral cortex reticular formation

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

The term that can be regarded as being responsible for the overall integration of the autonomic nervous system in this question is :hypothalamus.

The autonomic nervous system can be regarded as a component of the peripheral nervous system.

  • It helps in regulation of involuntary physiologic processes, such processes as  heart rate, blood pressure and other.

  • However, the overall integration of this system depends on the hypothalamus, because it's at the top of the control hierarchy and it also serve as an integrator as regards the activity of the system.

Therefore, hypothalamus is the correct term.

Answer:

Answer: the correct answer is hypothalamus.

Explanation: the hypothalamus stands at the top of the control hierarchy as the integrator of ANS (autonomic nervous system).

An ecologist observes that the diet of a bird species consists primarily of large grass seeds (as opposed to smaller grass seeds or the seeds of other herbaceous plants found in the area). He hypothesizes that the birds are choosing the larger seeds because they have a higher concentrations of nitrogen than do other types of seeds at the site. To test the hypothesis, the ecologist compares the large grass seeds with the other types of seeds, and the results clearly show that the large grass seeds do indeed have a much higher concentration of nitrogen. Did the ecologist prove the hypothesis to be true? Can he conclude that the birds select the larger grass seeds because of their higher concentrations of nitrogen? Why or why not? If you suspect an additional factor may involve, state your hypothesis and the design of an experiment to test your hypothesis

Answers

Lets understand the given passage.

An ecologist observes that the diet of a bird species consists primarily of large grass seeds (as opposed to smaller grass seeds or the seeds of other herbaceous plants found in the area).

He hypothesizes that the birds are choosing the larger seeds because they have a higher concentrations of nitrogen than do other types of seeds at the site.

To test the hypothesis, the ecologist compares the large grass seeds with the other types of seeds, and the results clearly show that the large grass seeds do indeed have a much higher concentration of nitrogen.

No, he cannot conclude that the birds select the larger grass seeds because of their higher concentrations of nitrogen. The hypothesis testing done by the ecologist is incomplete as he failed to set up a control in the experiment. The control would have been the birds feeding on large seeds that lack or are low on nitrogen content. This will establish a relation between the bird's diet and the size of the seeds and the nitrogen content of the seeds. It could be true that birds do not care about the nitrogen content but simply prefer larger seed sizes.

Another problem associated with his field experiment is the failure in noting the beak sizes of the birds. The beak size and shape enable a bird to break and eat seeds. Larger beaks fail at breaking open smaller seeds. This observation would add bird beak size as another variable of the experiment.

Suppose that your friend is moving far away and describing his new location. He mentioned that Derreck gets a lot of precipitation for most of the year, except for the summer, which is cool and dry. He also noted that his house is surrounded by flowering trees in conifers and that he saw at least 3 camouflaged animals more quickly than his sister could. Which biome well his new home be part of? a. temperate grassland
b. desert
c. Northwestern coniferous forest
d. Tropical dry forest

Answers

d. Tropical dry forest

A biome is composed of various diverging ecosystems that relates with the community. Biomes can either be deserts, grassland, savanna, tropical rain forest, taiga, boreal and etc. An ecosystem involves both the biological (plants, animals, human beings) and non-biological (land, water, soil, and atmosphere) community which interacts as a system.

chemically alter the make-up of nutrients, changing them into a form that can be readily used by cells. a) Enzymes b) Amino acids c) Carbohydrates d) Nutrients

Answers

Answer:a) Enzymes

Explanation:Enzymes are biological catalyst that acts on reactions that takes place in living organisms.enzymes are proteinous in nature and are specific in the substrate they act on .

In multicellular organisms,ingested food needs to be broken down into forms that can be absorbed by the body.the digestive system perform this function through mechanical breaking down of food eg in the mouth and through enzymes.

An example of enzyme is the amylase in the mouth which digest starch.

Unicellular organism do not have digestive tract but within their cytoplasm ,they digest food in a

food vacuole by the use of enzymes.

Assume a thylakoid is somehow punctured so that the interior of the thylakoid is no longer separated from the stroma. This damage will have the most direct effect on which of the following processes? A) the splitting of water
B) the absorption of light energy by chlorophyll
C) the synthesis

Answers

The question is incomplete. The complete question is:

Assume a thylakoid is somehow punctured so that the interior of the thylakoid is no longer separated from the stroma. This damage will have the most direct effect on which of the following processes?

a. the splitting of water

b. the absorption of light energy by chlorophyll

c. the flow of electrons from photosystem II to photosystem I

d. the synthesis of atp

Answer:

d. the synthesis of ATP

Explanation:

During electron transfer from water to PSII and from the reaction center of PSII through an intermediate chain of carriers to PSI and finally to NADP+, protons are pumped from stroma to thylakoid space. This creates a proton centration gradient with higher proton concentration in the thylakoid space than stroma.

Since the thylakoid membrane is impermeable to protons, the downhill movement of protons through a proton channel drives the synthesis of ATP. If the thylakoid membrane is punctured, the proton concentration gradient would not be formed to support the process of ATP synthesis in chloroplasts.
