Example: Abrams, P. A. 1987. The functional responses of adaptive consumers of two resources. Theoretical Population Biology 32:262-288.
Two or more authors:
Last name, First initial. Second initial., First initial. Second initial. Last name, and First initial. Second initial. Last name. Date. Title. Journal title volume number:pages.
Example: Hjalten, J., K. Danell, and P. Lundberg. 1993. Herbivore avoidance by association: vole and hare utilization of woody plants. Oikos 68:125-131.

Even though the basic composition of most cells are similar, there are many different types of specialized cells found in various organisms. For this discussion please choose one type of cell to research and describe.Choose one type of cell not yet described by other students (easier the earlier you post!).
Do NOT choose eukaryotic, prokaryotic, plant, animal or bacteria cells (the large categories of cells), rather choose a specialized type of cell found in animals (examples: blood, nerve or sperm cells), plants (examples: guard, epidermal or root hair cells), fungi or bacteria.
Briefly describe the structure and role of your chosen specialized cell. How is this type of cell unique compare to other types of cells? Include an image of your cell in your post.
You main response should be at least 150 words and include references to all information sources used.
