A. m. scutellata

since the africanized honey bee is a hybrid would this 'Apismellifera scutellata' be a species or a subspecies? otherwise what would i put under species in the taxonomy? Lwashio 23:59, 21 November 2007 (EST)lynne

Apis mellifera scutellata is a subspecies - indicated by the Trinomial (3names). Apis is the genus name, A. mellifera is a species name, A. m. scutellata is a subspecies.

Since its a Hybrid, you cant identify it by species name. Instead I would just identify is as a "Hybrid". I edited the box for you.

At the top of the NSCS page (under the Images Header), I placed a link to this list of image sites where usable images might be found. Alternatively, simply include "gov" along with the keyword n a google search to find images on U.S. National government sites. They are all public domain.

Image edit

If you want to use this image (especially as your main), then consider checking the Creative Commons License to see if you are permitted to modify (remix) the image. If so, I'd download the biggest version possible and crop the bee and flower, to eliminate the time/date stamp and much of the background.

You'll find a link beneath the image (on the Pool description page) that says "upload a newer version", that you can use to upload your revision and not worry about the having to reenter the source and stuff.

You'll want to remove that frame and caption on the main photo also. Check the "history" tab for the page to get the original code.

Using the gov extension and looking the US national agency websites is a possibility.

We've also accumulated a large list of sites that contain usable images.

You may use Wikimedia Commons, but only as a last resort. The following should help.

I fixed it. You were missing the bar (|) between the data sets. Also the template (isotope-u) has a u/s for the stable vs. unstable isotope. To create a second line - try using the line break (<br />)

do you think it would be okay to write about what evolutionists think the scale to flight feather evolution is, like the scale turns into this type of feather and develops this and evolves into this until it gets to the modern day's bird feather? or because it is supposed to be from a creationist point of view it would be unnecessary? Lwashio 06:47, 30 November 2008 (UTC)lwashio

Yes - actually you should consider that necessary. The existence of so-called feathered dinosaurs and them being proof of reptile-to-bird transitional forms is an "evolutionist claim". Your goal is to provide an exposition of the creationist perspective on this claim. --Ashcraft - (talk) 18:11, 30 November 2008 (UTC)


I applied the Math tags to your gravitational formula and applied the Bible quote template to one of your Bible verses. You should be able to figure out how both work to apply them additionally. There's a math help page if you need it...
