When comparing chick and pig embryos, the similar eyes, pharyngeal pouches, and post-anal tail are evidence of. common ancestry. The presence of vestigial organs supports evidence of evolution because. the vestigial organ is similar to a functional organ in a related species, having been passed down from a common ancestor.

  Radioisotopes are widely used in medicine, industry and scientific research, and new applications for their use are constantly being developed. Radioisotopes are radioactive isotopes of an element. Different isotopes of the same element have the same number of protons in their atomic nuclei but differing numbers of neutrons.

In agriculture, radiation and radioisotopes are also used in the nutritional studies of trace elements, mechanism of photosynthesis, plant protection including action of insecticides, metabolisms in plant, uptake of fertilizers, ions mobility in soils and plants and food preservation.

ISOTOPES IN SOIL-PLANT NUTRITION STUDIES. Agriculture is dependent on soil for a variety of reasons, one of the most important being the fact that soil contains the elements which are essential to plant growth and can store nutrient elements (fer­ tilizers) added from outside.

Pharmacological Studies: Another field where radioisotopes are widely used is in the development of new drugs. This is a particularly complicated process, because, besides showing whether a drug has a desirable effect, much more must be ascertained before it can be used in the treatment.

This handbook will discuss these issues as they pertain to assessing stormwater runoff effects on freshwater ecosystems.

SOURCES OF NPS POLLUTION A wide variety of activities and media comprise NPS pollution in waters of the United States (Table ).

The major categories of sources include agriculture, silviculture, resource extraction,File Size: KB. One of the early uses of these isotopes was in tracer studies of the mineral elements significant in plant nutrition.

The behavior of many important nutrients, such as potassium and phosphorus, have been elucidated by the tracer technique. The use of isotopes in micronutrient studies offers both special advantages and special by: 1.

Radioisotopes are also useful as tracers to follow atoms through metabolism, with various uses in medicine (medical therapy, diagnostics and research), since cells use the radioactive atoms as they would nonradioactive isotopes of the same element, but the radioactive tracers can be detected.
