Descripción

Visual Description: This squirrel is about 14-15 inches in length, with its tail being about the same length as its body. It is a brownish gray color and has fur on its back and a brownish gray bushy and fluffy tail. Its stomach is a lighter white color. The squirrel’s ears are small and pointed at the top. Its hands are in a folded position and its eyes are small and black.

Defining characteristics: This squirrel has hair on it, which defines it as a mammal. It is in the order Rodentia, characterized by a single pair of growing incisors on the upper and lower jaw. Rodents also have small bodies, long tails, and short limbs, like the squirrel does. The gray color, slender body, and fluffy tail is indicative of this animal being an Eastern Gray Squirrel. This animal is a deuterostome.

Habitat: This animal was found in an urban environment. It was standing on a bench with a brick wall next to it, which is next to a grassy field with trees nearby outside of the Marshall Student Center at the University of South Florida. These organisms are generally found in the Eastern United States, ranging from east of the Mississippi River and north into Canada.

Visual Description: This organism is hanging from tree branches and is a dull whitish greenish brown color. This organism has slender stems that have leaves that are thin, scaled, and curly that are hanging in a draped chain fashion. The leaves hang approximately 4-5 feet in length. There are small flowers on the leaves that are orange, with petals approximately 1 cm in length.

Defining characteristics: This organism is a seed plant. It can be characterized in the Bromeliaceae because it is a monocot flowering plant. This organism can be classified as a Tillandsia usneoides because of its thin hanging scaled leaves and small flowers.

Habitat: This organism was found in an urban environment. It was hanging from an oak tree at the University of South Florida. Spanish moss is geographically distributed mostly in Mexico, Bermuda, the Bahamas, Central America, South America, the Southern United States, West Indies, but can also be found in Australia and French Polynesia and typically grows hanging from tree branches in full sun through partial shade

I have identified this as a resurrection fern, also knows as Pleopeltis Polypodioides. They can be found all throughout Florida and grow on branches and tree trunks. The stem has several fonds attached to it, and can grow anywhere between 4 to 12 inches long. It has the ability to endure through droughts, but needs to be growing on a host, but it isn't parasitic where it steals nutrients from its host. On the underside of the fern are structures called sori which contain spores that allow the fern to reproduce.

Descripción

Visual Description: The lichens observed were each about 2 inches in both length and height. These lichens were located on tree trunks, and were either seen individually or in clusters. Each lichen had a bright pink/red color around its edges, with a white center. The edges of each lichen were not perfectly rounded, instead they were wavy and textured.

Defining Characteristics: This organism, as stated previously, is a lichen. Lichens are in the phylum Mycophycophyta. This was determined through its presence on tree bark, as well as its shape, coloring, and textured appearance. Lichens are also commonly found in forests, which is where this observation was made.

Habitat: This lichen was on tree bark in Lettuce Lake Park, which a natural wooded area with sunlight and moisture. Although lichens can grow even in extreme temperatures ranging from freezing to excessive heat, they can only grow in places that are not heavily polluted.

Descripción

Visual Observation: The moss was extending off of a trees branch, and reached up to about 4 feet in vertical length. The moss appeared a bit dry and the color was very light brown, almost cream. From the slender stem of the moss, there are thinner curly leaves growing in a chain like pattern towards the ground while hanging.

Defining Characteristics: This is a seedless non-vascular plant. The moss does not have an vascular tissue which would be needed to transport both nutrients and water, therefore each individual plant cell gets water from the environment

Habitat: This moss was found on a large oak tree growing off of the highway in Tampa Florida. The Tillandsia Usneodies is commonly found in the south eastern region of the United States. The plant naturally ranges from Virginia beach all the way to Argentina. The moss likes warm weather and humidity, and will grow wherever this climate is.

Visual Description: The organism presented in this picture is an Eastern Gray Squirrel. These tree squirrels are small animals, approximately 6 inches in body length, and have a 6 inch tail, making them about 1 foot in length. They have a brown fur coat, with a gray tint, and a white colored stomach. They have a large fluffy tail, two small ears, beady black eyes, and a smaller head compared to their full body. Since squirrels are mammals, they are able to reproduce sexually with each other by mating.

Defining Characteristics: The Eastern Gray squirrel fits under the deuterostome category, as they are vertebrates. They are labeled as a “rodent.” These squirrels are fast runners, and are very fidgety and alert at all times. They are excellent climbers of trees, and have strong back legs and large tails, almost the size of their body.

Habitat: This organism was found in a parking lot located near University of South Florida’s Juniper Poplar Dorm. The Eastern Gray squirrel mostly lives in the Eastern half of the United States. They are commonly found within trees, and even in the comfort of your own backyard.

Reference:
According to https://kids.nationalgeographic.com/animals/mammals/facts/eastern-gray-squirrel, there are over 200 species of squirrels living around the entire world. Eastern gray squirrels forage for nuts, seeds, and flowers. They are very important for seed dispersal, and can carry their food and bury it in several locations near. With their role in seed dispersal, the seeds and nuts sprout during the spring.

Shape, Size, and Coloration + Defining characteristic(s):
The orgasm was small, had four limbs, and a long bushy tail that was brown with black and white highlights. Overall, the organism was covered in brown fur. The organisms had two black-beady eyes, rounded-upright ears, and a mouth. The underside of the organism was covered in white fur opposed to the brown fur on its back, head, and neck. I believe this is a chordate primarily because of tus post-anal tail. However, I believe that this organism is most likely an Easter Gray squirrel due to its gray-ish brown bushy tail and paler fur on its underside.
Habitat:
Found on USF Tampa campus on side walk near dorms.
Known Geographic Distribution:
Chordata are known to be found in every where marine, freshwater, terrestrial, and arial. Eastern gray squirrels are found in woodland and urban areas and are known to be found in Eastern North America, including Florida.
