Parasitism is a dangerous problem because it causes disease in animals. These diseases in animals can be contagious to human beings; therefore animals harm the ecosystem by spreading bacteria, and pathogens. According to Baucom, and de Roode (2011), tolerance or resistant mechanisms in animals could reduce the growth of parasites. Diseases and bacteria are not only the problems with animals, as human population increase, animals and humans comes in conflict with each other. However, the conditions and climate of Georgia can affect some foreign animals. For example, the panda that was at the Atlanta zoo originated from China, since the panda is used to the environment in China, the climate of Georgia has affected them, therefore they were sent back to China to secure their health. Several species such as gray bats, Indiana bats, manatees, and humpback whales are endangering due to human’s overhunting activities (Castleberry 2005). Some animals in Georgia are affected by the conditions and climate of the area, while other animals affect the health conditions of human beings.
Animals live varies to the elevation level of the five regions of Georgia. The five regions of Georgia are Blue Ridge, Appalachian Plateau, Valley and Ridge, Piedmont, and Coastal Plain. Animals such as deer mouse and smoky shrew are the uncommon mammals that live in Georgia, only seen in the Blue Ridge region of Georgia, because this region has the highest elevation. The Valley and Ridge, and Appalachian Plateau Animals contain many caves for bat species. The Piedmont regions provide habitats for the wetland animals such as swamp rabbits, and river otter. The Coastal Plain provides habitats for other animals that live in oceans...

.... Some animals face endangerment because of human’s hunting activities and because of the climate changes. Due to the endangered rare species, people solve this problem by bringing these animals back to their natural habitat.

- Parasitism is a dangerous problem that causes diseases in animals. Over time, the most successful parasites are the protozoa, the helminthes, and some of the arthropods (Olsen 1962). These parasites were successful because they move from one host to the next, and some of these parasites, such as the arthropods, feed on blood and tissues in animals and humans, and deprive nutrients from their host. Often this loss of nutrients will result in severe internal organ bleeding for the host. For example, “When parasites, such as hookworms in man or trichostrongyles in cattle and sheep, affect the entire population, the effect of the disease is masked and often not recognized…the injections of these...

- Water Borne Vectors in Georgia: the Diseases They Cause and Methods of their Control Water borne vectors are insects that live and breed in water, which contains diseases caused by things like bacteria and chemicals. These insects then spread these diseases to other animals. The most deadly vector borne disease to humans is Malaria, which is responsible for an estimated 2000 deaths per day, most of which are African children under the age of five (World, 2002) (Sachs, 2002). Malaria is contracted from a bite by a water borne vector, specifically the mosquito.... [tags: mosquitos, insects, disease]

- He Who is Attaked by Animals When I was in grade school, my family lived seven miles outside of Lincolnton, Georgia, about fifty miles north of Augusta. It wasn't really a farm because technically farms produced something; all our farm produced was trouble. We owned probably some of the most vicious animals in Lincoln County. This tended to keep the flow of friends to our house down to a minimum. Many of our friends had been bitten, kicked, cut, and bruised at the very least. These attacks could cause physical and emotional trauma at worst, and the publicity surely didn't encourage other friends to visit.... [tags: Personal Narrative, Autobiographical Essay]

- It is worldwide knowkn that no creature exists in isolation, ecosystems are dilicate arrangements where plants and animals all depends each other for survival. The removal of a single species can disrupt the balance, conceivably set off chain reaction affecting others by breaking the food chain and altering the habitat where they live. Many animals and plants become endangered or extinct each year. Recently, however, the rate of them dying out increased dramatically. It is estimated that 27,000 species become extinct each year, about 3 an hour.... [tags: gazela subgutturosa, global warming]

- Introduction Genetic engineering has been a part of society for thousands of years, primarily through the means of selective breeding. However today, technology allows for the transfer of genes between various organisms and goes beyond selective breeding. This type of genetic engineering allows for the specific selection of a gene which controls the desired trait. This type of genetic engineering has allowed access to numerous medicines, such as insulin and have also reduced the need for pesticides and herbicides.[2, 3] However, there are a variety of concerns which are attributed to genetic engineering, such as the risk of creating new disease, a variety of super weeds have been produ...

The definition of adaptation is a function with a role that benefits the organism and is evolved by means of natural selection. The first habitat that was visited was the fragile rain forest. At the zoo the habitat in the exhibit was wet and there was a river, bamboo, rocks and lots of trees and vines. In the actual rain forest on earth, the rain forest habitat contains a wide variety of plants and animals.... [tags: natural selection, plants or animals]
