  Biological life cycle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A life cycle is a time of development of one generation of a species, whether through asexual reproduction or sexual reproduction, and especially in regard to its ploidy.
Zygotic and gametic meiosis have one mitotic stage and form: during the n phase in zygotic meiosis and during the 2n phase in gametic meiosis.
The individuals or cells as a result of mitosis are haplonts, hence this life cycle is also called haplontic life cycle.

 Life article - Life eternal life artificial life extraterrestrial life WordNet Longman - What-Means.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Life is a multi-faceted concept with no simple definition, in part because the word is often used in an intentionally open-ended way, as exemplified by phrases such as "eternal life", "artificial life", and "extraterrestrial life".
A useful characteristic upon which to base a definition of life is that of descent with modification: the ability of a life form to produce offspring that are like its parent or parents, but with the possibility of some variation due to chance.
In all known life forms (assuming prions are not counted as such), the genetic material is primarily DNA or the related molecule, RNA.

 The Origin and Evolution of Trematode Life Cycle
It is the life cycles in general and the stages that comprise these cycles that are the focus of the detailed analysis presented herein.
The authors have attempted to typologization the life cycles of modern trematodes The original scheme of probable ways of their transformations in the course of taxon evolution and its penetration into ecosystems of different sorts is given.
Life cycles of this type are characteristic of the most modern trematodes both keeping some archaic characters (Heterophyidae, for example) and the most advanced (Strigeidida, Palgiorchiida).

 Longest Life Cycle
Life cycle is defined as the sequence of events from egg to reproducing adult.
Insects have solved the problems of synchronizing life cycles to seasonal periodicities and responding to other biotic and abiotic factors with an impressive array of tactical alternatives.
In summary, although 17-year cicadas are well-known for their long life cycle in natural habitats, some wood beetle species definitely have the longest life cycles in exceptional habitats.

 Station Information - Biological life cycle
In the biology of eukaryotic organisms, a life cycle includes the major sexual stages of a species, especially in regard to its ploidy (basic number of chromosomes).
There are three types of cycles: zygotic meiosis, gametic meiosis, and sporic meiosis.

 LIFE CYCLE
Nematodes share a relatively simple life cycle consisting of an egg stage, four juvenile (or larval) stages (often referred to as J1, J2, J3, and J4) and an adult stage.
The variations on this simple life cycle pattern that have developed as parasitic nematodes have exploited different habitats are truly fascinating.
Sometimes all of the life cycle stages are able to infect a host while in other species only one life cycle stage is infective.

 TRYPANOSOMA CRUZI: TAXONOMY, MORPHOLOGY AND LIFE CYCLE
The identification of this parasite by morphological and biological features does not offer difficulties and differential is only required for Trypanosoma rangeli, a non-pathogenic flagellate which infects humans in some areas of Central and South America and is transmitted by some of the same vectors that transmit T. cruzi.
T. cruzi is not a homogeneous population and is composed rather by a pool of strains which circulate in both the domestic and sylvatic cycles involving humans, vectors and animal reservoirs of the parasite.
T. cruzi evolves during its cycle into different forms which are identified by the relative position of the Kinetoplast in relation to the cell nucleus and the flagellum emergence.

 WoodyPest Glossary
Classical biological control typically is performed by personnel of university and federal and state departments of agriculture.
Once a classical biological control agent is imported and populations of it are established, the benefits of its actions are free; the natural enemy is not for sale, nor is there any point in selling it.
The aim of biological control (an action by man) is to use whichever of the natural enemies that can be manipulated to improve on the suppressive effects provided by nature.

 The Life Cycle of the Mosquito
The length of life of the adult mosquito usually depends on several factors: temperature, humidity, sex of the mosquito and time of year.
The mosquito goes through four separate and distinct stages of its life cycle and they are as follows: Egg, Larva, pupa, and adult.
might go through its life cycle in 14 days at 70 F and take only 10 days at 80 F. Also, some species have naturally adapted to go through their entire life cycle in as little as four days or as long as one month.

 Insect Life Cycle
There is great variability among insects in the length of the life cycle, from a few days to many years, in the method of development, in the appearance and habits of the stages leading to adulthood and even between successive life cycles.
In these insects the life cycle is synchronized to the seasonal cycle, often by the overwintering stage.
The life cycles are usually complicated, involving alternate hosts, winged and non-winged adults, different feeding patterns, etc. The aphids (Homoptera) and gall wasps (Hymenoptera) are the most typical of these groups.

 Phenology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Because many such phenomena are very sensitive to small variations in climate, phenology is useful in the study of climate change.
This usually means recording and comparing the life cycles of plants and animals, for example the dates of bird migration, plant budding, flowering or fruiting, insect activities, stages of birth and death are all annual events of interest to phenologists.
In Japan and China the time of blossoming of cherry and peach trees is associated with ancient festivals and some of these dates can be traced back to the eighth century.

Nearly all forms of life on Earth depend on the production of sugars from solar energy and carbon dioxide (photosynthesis) and the metabolism (respiration) of those sugars to produce the chemical energy that facilitates growth and reproduction.
All of these biologically mediated processes represent a removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storage of carbon in geologic sediments.
