The meerkat has seen a meteoric rise to fame following a certain television advert and now it's one of East Yorkshire's newest residents.A new litter of the furry creatures have arrived at Bishop Burton College.
Being social creatures, meerkats live in large groups of up to 30 members and spend much of their time on guard, standing still looking out for predators. Life Cycles and Habitats Every plant and animal has a pattern of growth and development called a life cycle.
Stages of Growth in Seed Plants---Seed After pollination (the spreading of pollen from flower to flower) occurs, seeds are produced and may be stored in fruits. Stages of Growth in Seed Plants---Seedling Seedlings produce the parts of the plant that will be needed for the adult plant to survive in its habitat. Stages of Growth in Seed Plants---Mature Plant Mature plants have the same structures (for example roots, stems, and leaves) as seedlings, but in addition they develop flowers or cones, which produce seeds. Seed Dispersal Most plants produce a large number of seeds because most seeds do not survive. Wind Some seeds are light and have wings or thin hairs that allow them to be carried away by wind. Eaten by Animals Some seeds are eaten by animals and deposited in areas away from the parent plants.
Adaptations Plants have adaptations that allow them to survive the conditions within habitats in which they live.
Examples of Root Adaptations Water lilies have long roots that can take in nutrients from the muddy bottoms of ponds or lakes. Examples of Stem Adaptations Vines have stems that can climb and stick to various surfaces to ensure that the leaves are exposed to light. Examples of Leaf Adaptations Water lilies develop wide leaves that allow them to float on the water to capture sunlight to make food.
Examples of Fruit Adaptation Some fruits are moist and fleshy like tomatoes, grapes, and peaches, which attracts animals that can eat them.
Examples of Seed Adaptations Seeds have adaptations that allow them to be dispersed and also to have enough food for the plant until it begins making its own food.
Plants Respond Seed dispersal Color Flowers come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Behavioral and Physical Adaptations of Plants and Animals Beginning With the End in Mind Essential Question Can you explain how physical and behavioral adaptations allow organisms to survive (including seed dispersal, color, and response to light for plants)? Freshwater This habitat is made up of water and is surrounded by grass, trees and usually some wooded area. Grasslands This habitat is dry and warm; however, there is a lot of grass and usually several trees. Special Adaptations Some animals have special adaptations for living in their particular habitat. The Arabian Desert encompasses almost the entire Arabian Peninsula, blanketing the area in sandy terrain and seasonal winds. As a geographic area, the Arabian Peninsula is often considered impassable, due to extremely dry environment and scarcity of visible vegetation.
While it appears inhospitable and barren at first glance, it has proven to be a valuable source for natural resources, including oil, natural gas, phosphates, and sulfur. Home to human populations for over 3,000 years, the earliest inhabitants of the region were the Bedouin, a nomadic civilization that used the lands of the Arabian Desert as a breeding ground for camels.
Encompassing almost 900,000 square miles (2,330,000 sq km), the Arabian Desert contains Rub'al-Khali, one of the world's largest continuous bodies of sand in the world.[4] The vast expanse of the Arabian Desert is formed through a series of natural boundaries that protect the sandy dunes and keep the dusty winds inside the desert. While the surrounding seas play a vital role in defining the borders of the Arabian Peninsula, the desert itself is contained within a ring of mountain ranges.
Along the northern edges of the Arabian Desert the landscape slowly elevates and blends into the topography of Arab Asia. While the Arabian Desert appears inhospitable and barren at first glance, it has proven to be a valuable source for natural resources, including oil, natural gas, phosphates, and sulfur. While the overall dryness of the Arabian Desert is a formidable obstacle to human occupation, it is actually the extreme daily temperatures that mark the region as uninhabitable on a large scale. One of the most active forms of wildlife in the Arabian Desert are insects, who are able to survive in the sweltering heat of the sand dunes.
At one point in the history of the Arabian Desert, the region was home to a large mammal population. Much of the wildlife in the desert lives off the wide variety of plant life that can be found in the region. Eventually, however, the many tribes of the Bedouin were unable to sustain a purely nomadic lifestyle. The discovery of petroleum in the region in 1936 ushered in a flood of Western cultural influence that severely threatened the traditional lives of the Bedouin. While the discovery of petroleum in the area has brought some advantages to Bedouin society and the Arabian Desert in general, the natural resource has been exploited to a degree that has severely harmed the natural environment.

The college's enclosure has been constructed to closely match the animals natural habitat, which includes an indoor heated area and an outdoor space with logs, rocks and sand for the meerkats to practise their burrowing behaviour and standing upright on their back feet. In order to ensure that seeds will survive, they must be carried away (dispersed) from the parent plant.
Corn and sunflowers have stems that grow thick and strong but remain green and flexible so that they can grow toward the sun.
Each variety of plant will survive where its leaf size, texture, thickness, and shape are adapted to the habitat.
Evergreen trees have leaves that are thin, waxy needles to protect them from freezing and losing water. Petals are colored and scented to attract insects and other creatures for the purposes of pollination. There is very little greenery on the floor of this habitat due to the canopies the trees create.
Plants and animals have special traits or characteristics that allow them to survive in their particular habitats.
Despite the inhospitable terrain, however, the Arabian Desert has served throughout history as a commercial passageway between the Middle East and North Africa. It also covers a vast reserve of underground groundwater, trapped beneath the sands since the Pleistocene Age, which has in recent years been tapped and used for irrigation in the region. However, the Arabian Desert is far too vast to fit within the political confines of a single nation, and spills over into neighboring countries. The most prominent borders of the desert are the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea to the southeast and south and the Red Sea in the west. The most notable of the bordering mountain ranges is found in the southwestern corner of the desert belonging to Yemen.
The section of land where the desert begins to transform into a more elevated landscape is referred to as the Syrian Steppe, a treeless plain that is noted for its wild beauty. The Arabian Desert also covers a vast reserve of underground groundwater that has been trapped beneath the sands since the Pleistocene Age. In the summer temperatures can reach a scorching 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit) in the heat of the day and plummet to extreme cold during the night. Despite the decline in herd populations, a few gazelles can still be found in wildlife preserves protected by the Saudi government. The plants that make the desert their home are, of necessity, adapted to the harsh environment and extreme weather. This fruit tree provides sustenance for both humans and livestock, preventing starvation in the harsh region. The earliest inhabitants of the region were the Bedouin, a nomadic civilization that used the lands of the Arabian Desert as a breeding ground for camels.
Faced with the demands of new international political borders in the area, the Bedouin settled into the oases.
Perhaps the most significant change in the region following the discovery of petroleum was the increase in transportation options in the area. Contention has also erupted between political entities based on the control and access to the petroleum fields.

The mob, as meerkat groups are known, have been introduced as part of the college's curriculum on teaching the behaviours of social mammals.
A habitat is a place where an organism or groups of organisms live and obtain the air, food, water, shelter or space, or light needed to survive. Each variety of plant will survive where its roots size, length, and spread are adapted to the habitat.
Carrots and dandelions have a large, thick root that is longer than its other roots, which helps the plants survive by reaching far underground to find water and to firmly anchor the plants.

Trees develop woody stems to support their size and provide protection during their long life cycles. The coloration of parts of some plants (fruits for example berries, or flower petals) makes them attractive to some animals (for example birds or bees).
These special traits or characteristics, called adaptations, are necessary for a plant or animal to survive if its surroundings change. The yellow line encloses the ecoregion called "Arabian Desert and East Sahero-Arabian xeric shrublands," [1] and two smaller, closely related ecoregions called "Persian Gulf desert and semi-desert" [2] and "Red Sea Nubo-Sindian tropical desert and semi-desert." [3] National boundaries are shown in black. A significant portion of the desert reaches into Yemen in the southwest and Oman on the eastern border.
In addition, the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman lie to the Northeast and east of the desert. While the northern edges of the Arabian Desert are able to blend seamlessly with the geography of Asia, the southern portions of the desert are much more akin to the land forms found in Somalia and Ethiopia. In recent years the underground reserve has been tapped and used for irrigation in the region. Both of these distinguishing features are clearly seen in the Arabian Desert, which boasts an annual rainfall of under 33mm and less than 15 percent humidity in the summer. At one point the locust were considered a plague to the landscape, but has since been brought under control. Other notable lizard varieties include the monitor lizard, which can reach an astonishing length of three feet. The few remaining gazelles are only a small part of the herds that once roamed the desert in abundance. Most of the species are either able to survive on a very limited supply of water or are salt tolerant. Also found in the oases are Juniper trees, (a prominent building material for the area), alfalfa, onions, melons, barley, and wheat. While using the natural growth in the region to support their herd, the Bedouin also began a system of standardized agriculture in the desert. The transition to a settled economy was accompanied with a decline in feuding Bedouin tribes, as grazing land was no longer contested.
Now that trucks are widely used as a method of transportation, more Bedouin children have access to an education and other social services. One notable example of a petroleum–fueled disagreement occurred in 1991, when 11 million barrels of oil were released into the Persian Gulf as a military tactic during the Gulf War.

Along the coast of the Persian Gulf, the Arabian Desert extends into the modern sheikdoms of the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. The glittering expanses of the sea only serve to highlight the dry nature of the desert and the lack of available water. It has been measured as the highest point in the Arabian Desert, but is closely rivaled by Mount Al-Lawz (elevation 8,464 feet) in the northwest and Mount Al-Sham (elevation 9,957 feet) in the southeast.
Some scholars speculate that the dual nature of the Arabian Desert is due to a continental split in its early geological formation that broke the Arabian Peninsula away from Africa. The groundwater, coupled with water reclaimed through desalinization, has allowed the Arabian Peninsula to be far more hospitable to modern populations than those of the past. Also making their home in the Arabian Desert, scavenging dung beetles, scorpions, and spiders play a vital role in the Desert ecosystem. As well as the gazelle population, the ibex population, a species of goat, has experienced a marked decline. Adaptations such as these allow the desert sands to bloom with vegetation after the spring rains. Utilizing the oases as fertile farmland, the Bedouin became noted for their cultivation of date palms and other crops. The effects of the oil release were necessarily catastrophic, devastating the entire aquatic ecosystem, culminating in the death of of thousands of water birds, whales, dolphins, and sea turtles. Last year, they won their last game but lost out on the playoffs when Granbury snuck in upsetting O.
The desert continues its expansion northward from Saudi Arabia as well, reaching into Kuwait and Jordan. To the north of the Arabian Desert, the harsh conditions of the desert climate extend up towards the Syrian Desert, making the desert seem especially foreboding. Oil reserves have also been tapped in recent years; however, exportation of petroleum products from the region is often interrupted by international crises like the Persian Gulf War. Many of the insects that live within the region have developed a series of defensive mechanisms that allow them to avoid predators in the harsh climate. However, the ibex population shows promise of returning to its former population after reintroduction to the wild from breeding in captivity. Despite native flowering plants such as the daisy, mustard, iris, and caper plants, the desert cannot support enough vegetation to allow it to be used as a grazing ground. The gang consists of an alpha male and female, four juveniles and two pups and are being housed at the college's new outdoor animal handling centre. A prime example of this is the sting of the scorpions, which are potent enough to kill a small child. However, due to the nocturnal nature of snakes, they do not often pose a large threat to human populations in the region.
This was not always the case, as the region was often used as a pasture for nomadic herdsmen.
Wyatt There would be no such drama this year as Aledo rode the hot hand of junior guard Dawson Gates. Naturalistic environmentNative to the Kalahari Desert in Botswana and parts of South Africa, the animals can survive in very hot and cold temperatures and feed on lizards, snakes, scorpions, eggs and insects. Overgrazing, however, effectively diminished the capacity of the area to support a large grazing area. While you will be able to view the content of this page in your current browser, you will not be able to get the full visual experience. After beginning the season 4-0, they hit some hard times the second half of district with five of seven games on the road. Please consider upgrading your browser software or enabling style sheets (CSS) if you are able to do so. Aledo had lost four straight and were 1-5 in the second half of district.The Bearcats reached back and did what they needed to turn back a hot South Hills team.
It was gut check time for the Bearcats and they fulfilled the promise they showed earlier in the year in tough District 7-4A.
Carl Williams scored 11 and Luke Bishop was also in double figures with ten points.The Bearcats will face District 8-4A Champion (24-3) Everman Bulldogs Tuesday February 18 at Brewer High School. Everman is currently ranked # 14 in Class 4A.It will be a repeat performance for the Bearcats in the playoffs under Coach Steve Smith. This year, Aledo is in the driver’s seat and can control their own playoff fate with just one more victory over surging South Hills. Granbury has been eliminated at 5-8 with a 47-45 loss to South Hills last night.
The victory for the Scorpions was their third in the last four games and has propelled them into the do-or-die final showdown with Aledo on Tuesday night. Aledo got off to another slow start against Arlington Heights. The Bearcats could only manage 19 points by halftime and were down 27-19 at the end of the first half. The Bearcats have been a second half team all season and Friday’s Senior Night home finale was no different.
Arlington Heights pulled away in the fourth quarter to spoil Aledo’s Senior Night with a 52-43 victory. The game was delayed one day due to bad weather Friday night. It was the final home game for Aledo seniors Josh Bell, Sean Church, Chandler Dean, Matt Dunn, Alex Stockdale, and Carl Williams. Leading Bearcats vs. Southwest (8-5) and Arlington Heights (8-5) are currently tied for second place in the district.
The two teams could still tie.For Aledo (6-7), it all comes down to the final game against South Hills (6-7). Unfortunately for the Bearcats, these are two teams going in opposite  directions in the second half of district play. Since Aledo beat South Hills at home 56-44 on January 17, the Bearcats are 1-5 while South Hills is 4-2. The Bearcats will be playing their fifth road game out of seven in the second half of district. With Williams in the lineup for that game, we would most likely be talking about the Bearcats already clinching a playoff spot. It is what it is and what it is isn’t that bad at all. If you recall last year, the Bearcats had to win their final game on Senior Night to have a chance at the playoffs.
Nick Losos will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury. The Bearcats are already going through a rough stretch on the schedule playing their third straight road game and four of the last five away from home. On top of the schedule, they had to play undefeated district leader Trimble Tech. This will be the last trip for Aledo to the historic Billingsley Field House in Fort Worth as a member of District 7-4A.
Unfortunately, the Bearcats did not leave on a winning note as the Bulldogs defeated Aledo 64-54. The Bearcats stayed with the quick and athletic Bulldogs in a fast paced first quarter.
Carl Williams tipped in the Dunn miss. Moments later, Matt Bishop snaked through the lane and scored on a nice drive through the lane.

The Bulldogs scored five more consecutive points giving then an 18-0 run to end the second quarter. The Bearcats have a few games where there have been some offensive lapses, but nothing compared to Wednesday night at Billingsley Field House.
Spencer Franklin is a space eater in the lane and an intimidating presence as a shot blocker in the middle.One word this Bearcat team just does not have in their vocabulary is “quit”.
Aledo fought back in the second half and solved the relentless full court pressure by the Bulldogs. Braxton McCoy hit three long range bombs in the third quarter and Matt Dunn added another as Aledo won the third quarter 16-14. In the fourth, Carl Williams came alive with ten points and Dakota Fisher played excellent basketball on both ends of the court. In the jumbled District 7-4A playoff race, all that has really happened is Aledo dropped from second to fourth in the district. It is a dubious position to be in because two games remain on the schedule and five teams have a shot of getting the last three playoff spots.
Trimble Tech has clinched first place. Aledo (6-6) has another huge game at home Friday night against Arlington Heights (7-5). Emotions stayed in check but some Granbury fans acted like they just don’t get out that often. It was at times a rough and ugly game held in check somewhat by the officials. Aledo was fighting from behind the entire game but kept clawing back to almost win the game. After Bishop’s basket, Granbury scored six of the next eight points with a Nick Losos basket sandwiched in between. Granbury led 13-8 and increased the lead to 15-9 at the end of the first quarter. Aledo started a comeback beginning in the second quarter. The Bearcats went to work on the offensive end with two free throws by Stockdale. Granbury scored on a nice finger roll after the two Stockdale free throws.
Nick Losos scored a basket and Carl Williams got his first basket of the game with 4:29 left to play in the first. Braxton McCoy missed the front end of a one-and- one, but Alex Stockdale got an offensive rebound and scored pulling Aledo within one 21-20. Luke Bishop sank two free throws to give Aledo its first lead of the game 21-20. Granbury was already in the one-and-one and hit both ends to go up 43-36. Aledo went on a 7-0 run to tie the game at 43-43. Braxton McCoy followed with a tremendous drive down the lane scooping in a left handed layup.
The good crowd helped the atmosphere for the Bearcats. Granbury scored again to go up by two points.
The bad news is there are a lot of teams now who can strip Aledo of a playoff spot. Whoever designed the schedule for the second half of district was a mean person.
The Bearcats have to play five road games in the second half and will play their third road game in a row Wednesday night t Billingsley Field House. Aledo has lost five District 7-4A games by a total of 19 points. Aledo lost that game by six points without the services of their top scorer and rebounder Carl Williams. The Bearcats have a tough schedule the rest of the way. They return home on Friday to play Arlington Heights who defeated Aledo 57-53 in the first half. The final game is against South Hills who have shown some improvement in the second half of the season. Aledo defeated South Hills 56-44 in the first meeting at home. Here are the remaining games for teams either 6-5 or 5-6 in district.
They play at Granbury on Friday and stay on the road for a Tuesday night showdown with district leading Trimble Tech (10-0) Tuesday at Billingsley Field House. District 7-4A is like a soap opera. All the teams are so evenly matched the games are close making predictions almost impossible.
The loss puts Granbury at 4-6 in district.The game Friday at Granbury is the biggest game of the season for Aledo’s playoff hopes. It would clinch a playoff spot for Aledo if the Bearcats are tied with Granbury at the end of the season. Arlington Heights is at 5-4 in district. It was the largest margin of victory so far in district play and the best defensive performance limiting the Cougars to 28 points. Three Bearcats were in double figures scoring led by senior Matthew Dunn with 15 points. Point guard Luke Bishop had his best game since coming back from football with 10 points. There are no easy wins in District 7-4A. Even though the Cougars are dragging the bottom of the district, they have played some teams tough this season.
Western Hills only lost to Granbury by three and played much better in the first game against Aledo when the Bearcats won 54-50. Friday night, the Bearcats made sure there would be no late game drama outscoring the Cougars 28-15 in the first half. Al the other teams in district have at least an outside chance at the playoffs. Aledo is currently in second place and control their own destiny at 6-3. The Bearcats are 1-2 on the road this season in district play. This is a huge week for the Bearcats playing two teams on the road who are still in the thick of the playoff hunt. Aledo would own the tie-breaker over both Southwest and Granbury with two game sweeps of both teams. Arlington Heights was in the state tournament last year and are playing strong again with a 5-4 record and tied with Southwest for third place in district.
Last year Arlington Heights, third place in district, made it to the state tournament. Despite losing three senior starters, Aledo had reason for optimism entering the 2014 season. All-District players Travis Gough, Alex Riner, and Kyle Gromann all graduated off a team that tied for a playoff spot but then lost out when Granbury upset second place O.D. Taylor Johnson also led the team in rebounds, steals, and assists. Coach Smith still had some solid players returning from varsity but replacing Johnson left an unexpected big hole to fill. A high school team does not usually lose their star player before his senior year. Coach Smith already knew he would be without the services of point guard Luke Bishop until football was over.
Little did he know Bishop would quarterback the Bearcat football team all the way to the Class 4A State Championship. The Bearcat basketball team also had another setback when senior Alex Stockdale decided to play football during his senior year. It was a heartwarming story about a player who never played football in his life deciding to suit up during his senior year. With Travis Gough and Matthew Ogden gone to graduation, Aledo was already a little “short” in the post position. Stockdale is a physical player who has no problem guarding taller opponents using his strength and creating position on taller players with his wide body. Bishop and Stockdale missed the first 13 games of the season including the first two district games.
It takes players a few games to transfer from a football mentality to a basketball regiment. Despite all the adversity, the Bearcats finished the first half of District 7-4A in second place with a 5-2 record. It was an amazing accomplishment considering all the obstacles. The key player for Aledo during their renaissance this season has been high flying senior Carl Williams. He leads the team averaging 15 points per game while shooting 64% from the floor and leading the team with a 78.9 free throw percentage. Aledo had to play the first game of the second half of district without their star player. The Bearcats easily defeated the Chaparrals in the first half of district 73-63 with Williams pouring in 31 points. Every game counts in the tough district race. Coach Smith has found a way to make lemonade out of lemons his entire tenure as the Bearcat head basketball coach. Alex Stockdale is getting his basketball legs back and has averaged 4.7 rebounds per game in six district contests.
Luke Bishop leads the team with four assists per game in district play. Catch the Bearcats at home this Friday at Bearcat Gym against Western Hills. Worth, TX—The Aledo Bearcats went on the road and lost their second close district game in a row 57-53 against the Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets. The loss comes on the heels of a heart breaking loss to Trimble Tech 48-46. Aledo started out the season 4-0 and still is in great position for a playoff spot in District 7-4A especially if they can get back to their winning ways against South Hills at home on Friday night.
A win would put the Bearcats in a commanding position for the playoffs with a 5-2 record during the first half of district play. Aledo took a 23-33 lead into halftime before being outscored 19-13 in the third quarter. Aledo’s first basket came on a three-pointer by Matthew Dunn with 4:30 left to play in the first quarter.
He made one of two free throws sending Alex Stockdale to the bench with his third foul. Nick Losos came in and crated some excitement for the crowd with a blocked shot and steal.
To make matters worse, a horrible charging call on Carl Williams with 5:36 to play waived off a basket for Aledo. The Bearcats came up with the ball after a mad scramble and a tie ball with the possession going to the Bearcats. Besides being down by two points, the other problem for the Bearcats was the clock. The clock only resets to seconds, not tenths of seconds. In the pandemonium over the clock, fans and some players from Trimble Tech drifted over and would not leave the Aledo bench area.
Aledo scored seconds later putting the Bearcats up by three.Bearcats Complete Improbable Fourth Quarter Comeback to Defeat Granbury 41-37Behind by six with under three minutes to play, Aledo goes on 9-0 runBig game vs. Nick Losos kept Aledo in the game with six first quarter points off the bench. Alex Stockdale did the heavy lifting in the third quarter with five points as Aledo’s defense shut down the Pirates allowing only six points. The basket and free throw not only cut Granbury’s lead to one, the foul was on Granbury’s big man Mitchell may sending him to the bench after fouling out.Aledo made a defensive stop and Coach Smith was able to call a time out retaining possession for Aledo before the referee called a jump ball. Matt Dunn put the game on ice hitting one more free throw to give Aledo a 41-37 win.It was a huge win for Aledo to keep them undefeated this season at 4-0.
The Bearcats play undefeated Trimble Tech at home Friday night for sole possession of first place in District 7-4A.
Arlington Heights is also a factor in district play at (3-1) and still have Aledo and Trimble Tech in the first half schedule. Aledo still has Heights, Trimble Tech, and South hills in the first half of District 7-4A.
