comment Identify this caterpillar
Are you sure that it's that particular species (if so, what characters are you using?), or could it be a related species (Abia sp.)? +1

comment Michaelis-Menten equation type - how it is derived?
@mdperry I think that the question is unclear and/or off-topic, given what the OP is actually asking for ("... explain how is the following differential equation found?", "...how it is derived?"), but whether the Q should be closed is up to the community. No close votes have been cast so far, and it is up to the OP to clarify what he/she is actually asking for.

comment Michaelis-Menten equation type - how it is derived?
@RoverEye Same thing, different names: the Monod equation is used to model bacterial growth and the Holling disc equation is used to model the functional response of consumers/predators. There are other examples as well. I've seen the Michaelis-Menten equation being used/mentioned many times as a general modelling tool/functional shape.

comment Is there a name for this phenomenon described in “Phylogenies and the Comparative Method”?
biology.ucr.edu/people/faculty/Garland/… and Garland. 2001. Phylogenetic comparison and artificial selection. Two approaches in evolutionary physiology. I think I've seen it somewhere else as well though.

comment Michaelis-Menten equation type - how it is derived?
Are you asking about how the Michaelis-Menten equation is derived or why it was deemed appropriate to model blood alchohol levels? The former is off-topic to BioSE since the Michaelis-Menten equation is used in many fields of science, and its derivation belongs to mathematics (maybe suitable for MathSE).
