Question description

Identify an organism that lives within 50 miles of your home. (Houston, TX

Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper about how the organism has adapted to survive in their specific environment. Include the following points in your paper:

  • Briefly describe the environment (temperature, landscape, food sources, etc.) and describe the organism's role in the environment. Determine which organism your chosen organism would be most closely related to using a phylogenetic tree.
  • Identify the structures and functions of the main organs found in your selected organism.
  • Explain how the organism has evolved physiologically to become suited to its environment.
  • Explain how things would change if the organism were to be transplanted to a significantly different environment:
  • Would their organ system still be as efficient? Why or why not?
  • Would the organism survive in this new environment? Why or why not?

Include the diagram and other appropriate pictures in your paper and make sure to provide a full reference for the images in your reference section.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines including references and in-text citations. Your paper should include a well written introduction and conclusion. Use only academic research sources.

LIVING ORGANISMS IN TEXAS

Introduction

Organisms can be living or non-living, there are those which are small like bacteria and
those who are huge like the whale. Organisms are single-celled and have different structures and
functions. Living organisms have several characteristics that make them unique, and that
includes the following. They respond to the environment that they live in, they also grow and
change, they can reproduce and bring forth an offspring. Additionally, they have structures in
them that are known as cells, and they also pass on their traits and features on to their offspring.
In the south of Texas, there is an organism that is called Javelina or Peccary which is the
equivalent of a wild hog. It has a skin that is blackish grey with a grey ring collar. It has a special
way of responding to excitement or fear by producing some odor from its tail that is strong and
musky. They can grow up to 21inches tall and eat small animals most of the time. There is
something unique about the females because they give birth to twins. The purpose of this essay is
to describe the environment where Javelina lives and its role in the environment. It will also
describe the structure and functions of the main organs of the Javelina and how the organism has
evolved to suit its current environment. Additionally, it would analyze the difference if the
organism were to be moved to a different environment. It will determine whether their organs
will remain functional or not or be able to survive in the new environment or not and the reasons
for the same.
The Environment where Javelina Lives
Javelinas live in thick and dense prickly pears and plateaus. They also live in the desert
washes, grasslands that are mixed up with shrubs and cacti and also in forests. They can live in
hot temperatures like in south Texas or cold temperatures like forests. Their source of food and
preference is that they eat small animals like rabbits, lizards, dead birds and even rodents (Ticer,

Ockenfels, Devos & Morrell, 1998). Additionally, it has been classified as an herbivore and can
eat plant foods, fruits, tubers, and also green vegetation. During the heat of the day, they rest and
hide under shadows of trees or rocky places.
The Role of Javelina in the Environment
Javelinas can be used as food, and they are hunted down and prepared as culinary foods.
It can be made as a wild game and in some cases made as sausage. Additionally, the Javelina is
the close relative to wild pigs.
