Variation - Differences between induviduals of the same species are described as variation.

Genetic Modification - Your genes/DNA
Envoronmental - The enviorment
Combination - A bit of both. Genes/Enviorment

Data about pollution - data is very important to scientist beacuase it can be used to test a theory or explanation

In mesuring pollutants they mesure in...
PPB - Parts per billion
PPM - Parts per million

Each Element us represented by a differnt symbol e.g C=carbon O=Oxygen Fe=Iron
