Determining the Sex of Snakes Dave and Tracy Barker The Sex Determination of Snakes It's hard to image today that only a few decades ago, most keepers had no idea what was the gender of the snakes they kept. However, most snakes do not have physical characteristics that will visually identify their sex.
Pinus remota — Texas pinyon or papershell pinyo Pollination and seed development[ edit ] The pine nut seed species will take a time that depends on the exact species e. For some American species development begins in early spring with pollination.
A tiny cone, about the size of a small marble, will form from mid-spring to the end of summer; the premature cone will then become and remain dormant with a cessation of growth until the following spring.
The cone will then commence growth until it reaches maturity near the end of summer. A cone is harvested by placing it in a burlap bag and exposing it to a heat source such as the sun to begin the drying process.
It takes about 20 days until the cone fully opens. Once it is fully open and dry, the seed can be easily extracted in various ways. The most common and practical extraction method used is the repeated striking of the burlap bag containing the cone s against a rough surface to cause the cone s to shatter, leaving just the job of separating by hand the seed from the residue within the bag.
Fallen seed can also be gathered beneath the trees. Ecology and status[ edit ] In the United States, millions of hectares of productive pinyon pine woods have been destroyed due to conversion of lands, and in China, destructive harvesting techniques such as breaking off whole branches to harvest the cones and the removal of trees for timber have led to losses in production capacity.
Although there are several other environmental factors that determine the conditions of the eco-system such as clouds and rainwithout sufficient water the trees tend to abort cones. High humidity encourages cone development. During the winter, frequent dramatic changes in temperature, along with drying, gusty winds, make the cones susceptible to freeze-drying that damages them permanently; in this case, growth is stunted and the seeds wither away.
The nutrition is stored in the embryo sporophyte in the centre. Although a nut in the culinary sense, in the botanical sense pine nuts are seeds; being a gymnospermthey lack a carpel fruit outside. The shell must be removed before the pine nut can be eaten.
Pine nuts are commercially available in shelled form, but due to poor storage, can have poor flavor and may be already rancid at the time of purchase. Consequently, pine nuts are often frozen to preserve their flavor. In the United States, P. The Italian pine nut P.CASE STUDIES ON NUTRITION.

Taste is a chemical sense perceived by specialized receptor cells on the tongue; it occurs when the receptor cells transmit information to the brain.
Similarly, smell is a chemical sense detected by specialized receptors in the nose; it occurs when those receptors transmit information to the brain.
