Question Description

BIO 1100 UNIT IV DISCUSSION BOARD QUESTION (02/23)

I have to comment on my classmates discussion board question this is what they wrote:

I reside in Lakeland Florida. My house is on 2.5 acres and in addition to our Great Dane, we also have chickens, and a few cows. I would describe the area where I live as temperate grassland. However, there are a lot of lakes and wetlands in my area (as pretty much the whole state of FL). Alligators, deer, and sand cranes are some of the species that are popular in my area. It seems from what I can remember from when I was younger, wooded areas, strawberry farms, and orange groves are being constructed into new businesses and homes.

Introduction
Vaccination is the act of giving an antigenic or pathogen to stimulate the white blood

most vulnerable part of its population to increase its HDI index and its economic development.
According to Williams (2015), having a higher infant mortality rate reduces a country’s
economic development index.
