Well-Researched Organism Profile ( research paper)

In this step of the course project you will write a well-researched organism profile (research paper) on your chosen organism. You should incorporate both the Outline (Assignment 2) fleshed out into paragraphs and the Abstract (Assignment 3) into this profile. Recall that your research should come from scientific information from the APUS library (see the work you completed for Academic Honor Review and Library Research Primer) as well as appropriate sources on the internet.

The required elements: Your profile should contain the following elements in the order listed below. Please note that this closely mirrors the expectations of the Outline (Assignment 2) as well as the abstract (Assignment 3). However, my expectation is that any feedback that was given to you from Assignments 2 and 3 be incorporated into this assignment. Please go back and review those comments.
Your Abstract should contain the following parts that are listed below.

Topic Sentence: your abstract must contain one sentence that clearly and concisely introduces the topic of the profile paper.
Content Sentences: your abstract must mention the following five main topics of the profile: background information about the species, life cycle of the organism, structure and function of one organ system of the organism, evolutionary topic, and an additional interest. This is challenging to write! These sentences should not be too specific, but reflect broad strokes summaries of each of these main topics.
Conclusion Sentence: Abstract contains one sentence that mentions key conclusions and/or findings.

I will send assignment 2 and 3 so you can use it as a reference.

Assignment 2-

Assignment 2 Profile Outline: Northern Praying Mantis
I. Introduction
A. Common and Scientific Names
1. Common names: praying mantis. Also known as: Pinyin, Mantis, Shandong, One Legged Mantis.
Scientific name:Mantis Religiosa
B. Geographic Range
a. Spain
b. France
c. North America
d. Asia
C. Specific Location (Country, State, City)
1. North America
2. Rain Forests
D. Specific Location Biome
1. Temperate Rain Forrest (Shaw 2011)
E. Background and Description
1. Not at risk of extinction. (Landers)
2. Morphology
a. Average life span is 1 year. (Brannoch, 2011)
b. General cephalic morphological nomenclature is fairly straightforward and without much discord.
c. The structures of the praying mantis head include a pair of antennae, a pair of compound eyes, three ocelli, a lower frons, a clypeus, a labrum, a pair of mandibles, a pair of maxillae and maxillary palpi, as well as a labium and a pair of labial palpi. (Brannoch, 2011)
3. Physiology (Folger, 1995)
a.
Tip for Assignment 4: The introduction information plus background and description can be written in several introductory paragraphs. The first introduction paragraph should introduce the species and the rest of the paper as a standard writing practice.
One Ear
i. Communication
ii. Find Food and Hunt
iii. Finding a mate
iiii. To hear mating calls
II. Life Cycle of the Organism
A. Eggs
This stage occurs just before winter. The adult female praying mantis lays 100 to 400 eggs after fertilization. The eggs are laid safely on a firm leaf or stem with a liquid that hardens to be a protective sac structure known as ootheca.
B. Nymphs
It’s during this period that the mantis try to feed on each other. After spreading out, they will begin to hunt for small insects such as fruit flies.
C. Adults
Full-grown mantises are normally between 1 to 6 inches in length, and are different in size depending on their species. Female mantises can be distinguished from males as they have heavier abdomens. In addition to small insects, mantises will prey on small nesting birds, mice, lizards and tree frogs. Praying mantises have an interesting behavior when they mate in that the female eats the head of the male mantis as it reduces his sex drive. After mating she feeds on the rest of male’s body. The female mantis usually dies after laying eggs.(Elizabeth 2011)
Evolution
A. Classification
1. Lineage
a. Wang Lang
b. Sheng Xiao
c. Li San Jian
d. Fan Xu Dong
e. Lo Kwang yu
B. Fossil Information
a. a 87-million-year-old praying mantis was found encased in amber in Japan (Ryall, 2008)

Assignment 3-
Topic Sentence:
The Praying Mantis is a type on insect, and is related to cockroaches, termites, and mantids. In the Praying Mantis family, there are over 2,000 types of mantis. The praying Mantis is referred as a large and slow moving insect with two front legs that have spikes on them so that they can grab and hold its prey to kill them.
Content Sentence:
a. Background
The Praying Mantis is found on every continent except Antarctica. They are mostly found in the tropical forest of South America, Africa and Asia.
b. Cycle of Life
a. Eggs
This stage occurs just before winter. The adult female praying mantis lays 100 to 400 eggs after fertilization. The eggs are laid safely on a firm leaf or stem with a liquid that hardens to be a protective sac structure known as ootheca.
b. Nymphs
It’s during this period that the mantis try to feed on each other. After spreading out, they will begin to hunt for small insects such as fruit flies.
c. Adults
Full-grown mantises are normally between 1 to 6 inches in length, and are different in size depending on their species. Female mantises can be distinguished from males as they have heavier abdomens. In addition to small insects, mantises will prey on small nesting birds, mice, lizards and tree frogs. Praying mantises have an interesting behavior when they mate in that the female eats the head of the male mantis as it reduces his sex drive. After mating she feeds on the rest of male’s body. The female mantis usually dies after laying eggs.(Elizabeth 2011)
The Chinese Mantis is the largest of the mantis family, reaching the length of three to five inches. The Carolina Mantis is the smallest mantis, reaching only less than two inches. Colors of mantis’s vary from brown to green and even yellow. The key features of the praying mantis are a triangular head with big eyes, a collection of sharp teeth in its mouth, and the mantis can rotate its head a full 180 degrees.
The evolutionary topic is that the Praying Mantis can camouflage itself to appear like a twig, or leaf and not get eaten by larger animals or insects.
Conclusion:
Praying mantises are probably the best known by the fact that female eats male’s head during sexual intercourse. That does not happen that often (there are only 30% chance that female will attack the male in the wild) and it is not essential part of the intercourse.
When threatened, praying mantis will stand on its hind legs and spread its front legs to scare the predator. If this tactic is not effective enough, praying mantis will strike using its front legs and try to bite and pinch the predators.
Average lifespan of the praying mantis in the wild is 12 months.

Main predators of the praying mantis are owls, frogs, monkeys and bats.
