Question description

Identify an organism that lives within 50 miles of your home.

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.

Structure and Functions of Organs




Timber Rattlesnake
Midday walks in the woods, near my home would certainly lead to hearing a hissing sound
of a timber rattlesnake. Many people fear snakes but a timber rattlesnake is a shy reptile, and they
won’t bite unless they feel threatened. However, they will warn you by shaking the rattle. A person
who likes to go for nature walks in the woods are likely to encounter timber rattlesnakes because
they take refuge on logs or leaf litter during hot summer days (Furman, 2015). This paper explores
the structure and function of timber rattlesnakes by taking a closer look at their environment, how
they have adapted to that environment and how they may react if they are introduced to new
Environment, Role, and Relations
Timber rattlesnake inhabits wooded upland forest with rocky outcrops. Historically, they
are mostly found in the eastern parts of the United States. Populations are also found in New
Hampshire south, New Jersey, and along the Mississippi drainage as far as in the Ohio River
Valley, Minnesota, and southern Illinois (Furman, 2015). Nonetheless, this is a historic extent of
range, but the species have become extinct in many areas, leaving patchy and fragmented
populations. During summer, gravid females are likely to be found in open, stony ledges that record
high temperatures while non-gravid females and males a spend more time in serener and denser
woodlands. During winter, the species Crotalus horridus brumate in limestone cracks and dens,
together with copperheads (Furman, 2015). These species regulate their body temperature because
they are ectotherms and during spring and fall when the weather is moderate, they spend most of...
