Structure and Functions of Organs

Phoenix BIO/101 Structure and Functions of Organs Paper

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

I need it to be on Black Bears in the Sequoia National park.

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.
