Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • Animalia - Kingdom containing multicellular organisms having cells bound by a plasma membrane and organized into tissue and specialized tissue systems that permit them to either move about in search of food or to draw food toward themselves. Unable to make their own food within themselves, as photosynthetic plants do, they rely on consuming preformed food. They possess a nervous system with sensory and motor nerves, enabling them to receive environmental stimuli and to respond with specialized movements.
  • ducks - General term for members of various species of relatively small, short-necked, large-billed waterfowl. They differ from geese in being smaller in size and having legs that are placed rearward, and the result is a distinctive waddling gait. Males, known as drakes, and females, known as hens, exhibit some degree of differentiation in plumage and in call.
  • etchings - Prints made from an etched printing plate, which is a metal plate on which a design is made by coating the plate with an acid-resistant substance, creating a design in the coating, and then exposing the plate to acid, which etches the plate where the metal is exposed. For designs incised directly into a copper plate using a burin or graver, use "engravings (prints)."
  • forests - Historically, refers to wilderness areas outside the scope of common law but within the legislation of kings and reserved for royal activities; more recently, used to designate extensive wooded areas, whether maintained for the production of timber or unmanaged and preserving a wilderness of dense growth and wild animal habitats. For forests in the context of a plant community rather than as a cultural landscape, use "forests (plant communities)."
  • lakes - Bodies of fresh or salt water surrounded by land.
  • silhouettes - Portraits cut from paper and mounted on a contrasting background; also, by extension, images showing no interior detail set against a contrasting background.
