Fruit being eaten is a very useful attribute for a plant, just like pollenisation through provision of nectar is often better than wind dispersal. Seeds contain startch and sugar, so seeds are always attractive to animals, so plants with fruit actually dissuade animals from eating the seeds, and encourage the fruit to be eaten in such a way as to be ...

The first differentiation in human embryogenesis is from early blastomeres into trophoblast, which forms the outer layer of the blastocyst, and inner cell mass (ICM). It may be unsurprising then that cells on the inside of the 8-16 cell stage morula differentiate into ICM whereas those on the outside differentiate into trophoblast. However it is currently ...

Seeds are spread by many mechanisms Wind dispersal: When air currents used to spread seeds. Often these plants have evolved features to facilitate wind catching, for example dandelions. Aka, anemochory. Propulsion & bursting: When seeds are propelled from the plant in an such as in these videos. This is called Ballochory. Water: Similarly to wind ...

That is highly unlikely. The article to which you linked specifically states: While watching other people exercise may increase your heart rate and have other physiological effects, nothing can replace the health benefits of getting off the couch. With proper nutrition, muscle is built through exercise by adding sarcomeres [to muscle cells which ...

I doubt it. Muscle growth comes from literally damaging muscle fibres by putting them under too much load. This is what causes the muscle pain after a workout. This triggers thickening and increase in number. Without the damage in the first place, there's no reason for the fibres to change.

It's a simple sub-set relationship, embryology is a sub-set of developmental (it's a "specialty"). Embryology is only concerned with the embryo - developmental is a larger group, concerned with developments that may occur in other stages of life. Such as the development of secondary sexual characteristics in humans - a developmental thing, but not embryonic. ...
