The third rule is that the trait must give the guppy a higher level of fitness and more able to pass on the trait to its offspring, which is true here because in dangerous water the darker colorations will help the guppy blend in and stay alive while the brighter guppies will be targeted more and in safe waters the lightest colored of the guppies will attract more mates to help pass the trait along to their offspring (Futuyuma 2009).(Smock, K.

Besides acquiring knowledge, I realized that we should pay more attention in using the natural resources and we should put more effort on the conservation.The field trip enables us to experience how to implement the conservation of natural resources, such as water and farming and helps explain what we have learnt in class.For the water conservation, a constructed wetland wastewater treatment system is set in KFBG.It can fully utilize the resources we have and it would not cause wasting resources which can be classified as a kind of conservation of resources.This system uses a wide range of wetland plants to act as biological filters for wastewater treatment, inspired by the water purification function of natural wetlands.

When fresh river water mixes with sea water in a semi-enclosed basin, an estuary is formed.The reason may be because mechanical excavation is not efficient as it leaves residual root material and broken root fragments, which can be spread further by water movement (Department of Conservation, n.d.).This has lead to the Department of Conservation and the Tasman District Council to believing that eradication of Spartina will be made possible and can become an option (Department of Conservation, 2008, 2010).Because of this, Spartina has since been classified as a total control pest plant throughout New Zealand by the Department of Conservation, where councils such as Environment Waikato, Horizons and Northland have been trying to eradicate ...
