Thus, the concepts of �white people� and �white privilege� share the same historical and institutional roots.

It cannot, however, compensate for the atmosphere several of these authorities have allowed to develop and sometimes helped shape Cleopatra: (Spanish Edition). The Triassic began hot and ended hot, and the Jurassic and Cretaceous were also hot, so staying warm was not a significant issue for dinosaurs.� Marine reptiles stayed cool by becoming aquatic, and for land-based dinosaurs, features such as Stegosaurus plates apparently replaced the sails of synapsids for both heating and cooling, and like the synapsid sail, those Stegosaurus plates may have also been used for display. [327] � Also, like the clich�, many large herbivorous dinosaurs lived near cooling swamps, although the issue has been controversial.� Cooling swamps and protective water holes that we see in the tropics today were a major aspect of Mesozoic landscapes.� But the thermoregulatory aspect that most work is directed toward today is how dinosaurs kept warm.� There is compelling evidence that dinosaurs regulated their body temperature in myriad ways, including internal chemistry.� All bipedal animals today are endotherms and they all have four-chambered hearts, as dinosaurs did.� Feathers, dinosaurs living near the poles ( 1, 2 ), and oxygen-isotope studies of dinosaur bones all support the idea that dinosaurs engaged in internal temperature regulation, but one of the more intriguing areas is that of dinosaur growth .� Like tree rings, bones have seasonal growth rings and they have been read for many dinosaur fossils.� They have been used to determine dinosaurian life expectancies.� Tyrannosaurus rex could live to be about 30, giant sauropods could live to be 50, and smaller dinosaurs, as with smaller mammals, lived shorter lives.� The tiny ones only lived three-to-four years and the mid-sized ones lived seven-to-fifteen years. [328] � Growth rates also provide thermoregulation evidence.� Tyrannosaurs had juvenile growth spurts and largely stopped growing as adults, and sauropods had growth rates equivalent to today�s whales, which are Earth�s fastest growing animals. [329] � But there is also evidence of ectothermic dynamics.� The great s ize of dinosaurs would have led to relatively easy ways to stay warm, as large animals have a greater mass-to-surface area ratio, like the way in which complex cells overcame the energy generation issue .� Also, in the generally hot Mesozoic times, staying warm would have been fairly easy, particularly for huge dinosaurs.� As scien tists know with mammals, although optimal performance can be attained with endothermy, it comes with a great energetic cost.� As with plants, an animal can spend its energy budget on consumption (metabolism) or investment (growth).� An intriguing hypothesis is that growing large was part of an energy strategy, as the benefits of size (reduced risk of predation, ease of conserving body heat and consequently less need for a high metabolism, ability to access new food sources, such as foliage high above the ground) outweighed their costs (energy devoted to growth instead of metabolism, the need to constantly feed).� Their size and the warm climate meant that large dinosaurs did not need as intense internal energy generation as mammals do, for instance, and dinosaurs may have been mesotherms, with internal energy regulation greater than ectotherms, but not as great as endotherms (mammals and birds). [330] � In light of GEOCARBSULF's depiction of low Mesozoic oxygen levels, Peter Ward addressed a controversial issue regarding how dinosaurs breathed. [331] � Bir ds have an air sac breathing system with an inflexible septate lung, which is highly superior to the mammalian alveolar bellows lung .� At 1600 meters elevation, today�s birds are about twice as efficient at extracting atmospheric oxygen as mammals are.� Flying is the most aerobically demanding activity on Earth and a bird�s air-sac breathing system is a primary reason why they can fly, and flying over the Himalayas is an energetic feat far beyond what any mammal can accomplish.� The high-performance respiration that birds possess is also why they live far longer than similarly sized mammals, but is related to their efficient mitochondria .� When a mammal breathes, it inhales oxygenated air and exhales carbon dioxide, but it is not a very efficient system, as fresh and depleted air mix in the lungs.� The air sac system, on the other hand, passes fresh oxygenated air along the lungs with each breath.� One might say that birds constantly inhale.� Animations of the air sac system can help us understand it .� Since birds evolved from dinosaurs, and indeed are dinosaurs, just when this innovation developed is of great interest to paleobiologists.� If the early Mesozoic were the low-oxygen times that GEOCARBSULF depicts, then the air sac system would have been a logical adaptation to oxygen-poor air Objective Tests.

Phyla consist of body plans, which scientists have used to classify all life forms, and all significant animal phyla had appeared by the Cambrian Period�s end. [197] � The Cambrian Explosion has been difficult to explain and there is still great controversy and many unanswered questions, and it has also been difficult to explain why significant change stopped after the explosion.� Once the basic body plans appeared and biomes were filled, new plans never appeared again.� Why did all fundamental change stop?� The emerging view is the same for why complex life went all in with aerobic respiration and never changed since then.� Not only could innovation confer great benefits, but once that path was embarked on, further travel along the developmental path made it continually less feasible to backtrack, start over, and take another path, or choose a fundamentally different path.� The history of life�s choices was reflected in organisms in several ways, and the source of that inertia began to be understood when biology and chemistry at the cellular and subcellular levels were investigated, particularly after DNA was sequenced and studied.� The fa ct that Hox genes have not significantly changed in several hundred million years points to the issue.� Hox genes have not changed because they control key developmental steps in embryonic development.� Not only do Hox genes work, there are no practical ways to significantly change them, as they lay the animal�s structural foundation.� Hox genes are called regulatory genes, and the nature of gene regulatory networks seems to be why animals have not fundamentally changed since the Cambrian Explosion. [198] � Imagine a f amily having a custom home built and, after it was built, they decided that they wanted a basement, four extra stories, central gas heating rather than baseboard electric heating, and a swimming pool on the third floor.� It would not be feasible to renovate the home to give it those new features, especially if the family was already living in it.� They would need to build a new house from scratch, with a new foundation, and they would have to find a temporary home during the construction period.� But an animal has to live in its body all the time.� There is no way to redesign and rebuild an animal�s foundation while it lives in its body, and the biological superstructure built on the foundation was designed for that foundation.� A new superstructure would also have to be designed and built on the new foundation.� A six-chambered heart, for instance, could not just be invented and put into a human chest and work, or a second brain, or a third arm.� The kinds of changes that are feasible have to adhere to the basic structural and biochemical foundations that the phyla represent The Ethical Crises of Civilization: Moral Meltdown or Advance.
