Some people argue that each individual animal has an intrinsic right to survival.

Should this right extend to plants and microorganisms? What about the Anopheles mosquito, which transmits malaria? Tigers that sometimes kill people in India? Bacteria that cause typhoid fever? Defend your position.

Is it right to use animals for teaching and research? Justify your answer.

Yes, although these organisms harm humans, they are only doing what nature has selected them to do. According to Darwin's theory, the fittest will survive. The fact that humans are defenseless against some of the smallest organisms on earth like bacteria and viruses indicates just how feeble and insignificant we are in the big picture. If something has been selected by nature to survive, then that organism has the fundamental right and the opportunity to survive. That ...

Picking Online Resources for Studying Human Biology

Designated as "Journ" in the grade book.) You have the chance to search the Internet for websites that may be of use to a human biology student seeking a resource for study. You'll keep a journal of this, and in the end, declare which website you feel is the most useful to a student in this course. Browse the web for course-realted websites; specifically, those that could be useful as study aids. You'll need to find at least 3 and compare and contrast them. Post your findings/thoughts in this journal and include the following:
- The names/locations (URL's) of each website.
- The pros and cons of the sites.
- The currency of the three sites (a.k.a. how old are these sites?).
- The usefulness of each website to a human biology student seeking an online study resource.
- What did you like the best about each site? The least?
- Finally, make a decision and declare which one you'd recommend to a classmate, indicating why you selected that particular site over the other two. Please note the grading form that will be used in evaluating your journal. Other students will also be able to review your journal, albeit anonymously. Similarly, you'll be anonymous when you review others' journals. Remember to maintain "Netiquette" with all online communications! Contact me with questions or concerns!
