Small lakes are a delicate ecosystem, and continued biological and chemical monitoring is imperative to create restoration plans. The lake is an invaluable asset to the Saint Xavier University community, providing both a peaceful, natural oasis, and as an interactive classroom to science students. Introduction The area of which is present day Lake Marion was once swampland. In the 1950’s, construction workers needed a dumping location from the construction of the future residence halls. As the crew dug, they hit a natural underground spring and the school officials allowed the spring to fill up (Bara, 2013).
Becoming a Conservation Police Officer Throughout my life I have called the wild of mother nature's outdoors my home away from home. Growing up, hunting and fishing have been of my favorite activities. Through this I have found a love and attraction to Virginia's great outdoors. During my time spent outdoors I have encourntered many different Conservation Police Officers(CPO). Around five years ago, I found myself greatly attracted to the idea of becoming a CPO.
Pre-AP Biology Summer Work General Instructions Or “What do I do with all the stuff in this packet?” Welcome to Pre-AP biology. I hope you are ready for a fun-filled, exciting year. I have put together a packet of information and assignments that will get you started on your road to biological success. One of the first things you will need to do is become familiar with my website. The Laboratory Equipment page should be colored and studied.

WetLands Biology Lab Dakota, Couch RRMT121 09/28/13 On Wednesday September 18th 2013, the northern field biology class went on a field trip to the Fen wetlands behind the copperridge area. We then observed the types of vegetation by making vegetation quadrat surveys. As well we learned about the role of wetlands and how important they really are to maintaining a healthy ecosystem. The five general types of wetlands found in Canada are marsh, bog, fen, swamp, and shallow open water. Marshes are defined as wetlands that are periodically or permanently covered by stopped or slow moving water.
Lab Report: “The Unknown” NAME: Donnise Warren PURPOSE: The purpose of this lab report is for students to be able to identify an unknown bacterium given to us by doing a variety of lab procedures and biochemical lab test to help identify what specific bacteria we have. INTRODUCTION: There are many reasons for knowing the identify of microorganisms. Such as knowing the causative agent of a disease that a patient may acquire, so that you would know how it could be treated, to knowing which microorganisms could be used for making antibiotics or even food. This lab report was done by implementing methods that have been learned throughout this semester in our microbiology lab course which helped identify my unknown bacterium #115. 6/28/2012 The 1st lab procedure performed was the gram stain.
B. Evaluate possible solutions a. The Environmental Science classes always use the outdoors for lab activities but it’s always around campus. We think extra credit should be offered to students who complete their lab activities at Wick Park and that would give students more of an incentive to spend time there and enjoy its beauty. b.
It is very interesting, because as stated earlier, photo bioreactors are the leading prospect to grow algae, and Professor Yildiz, a Cal Poly teacher is the inventor of this great piece of equipment. Since his arrival to Cal Poly, the U.S. department of Agriculture has been awarded grants to help fund the project. Not only has Professor Yildiz helped the world change towards biodiesel fuel, he has also helped his students get jobs and be admitted to grad school because of their research for change
Among the cases studied in class, those that were most prominent, when it came to studying nature, were the twin studies. It is not everyday that someone finds their long lost twin and discovers that, apart from the obvious physical traits, they share an astonishing amount of similarities. Jim Lewis and Jim Springer, identical twins separated at birth, seemed to have led parallel lives unknowingly, sharing similar likes and dislikes, gestures, voice tones, and habits such as chain smoking and woodworking. (Smithsonian, 1980) Cases like these provide further evidence to scientists that nature is the leading cause behind people’s behaviours. Additionally, cases like that of David Reimer, enforce this hypothesis even more.
Moreover, the solvent-free tosylation step of the reaction leads pedagogically to a discussion about green chemistry. KEYWORDS: Second-Year Undergraduate, Laboratory Instruction, Organic Chemistry, Hands-On Learning/Manipulatives, Alcohols, Aldehydes, Green Chemistry, NMR Spectroscopy, Thin Layer Chromatography, Synthesis Scheme 1. Synthesis of β-Citronellyl Tosylate I t has been a tradition in chemical education to use examples of compounds in “real-world” applications to illustrate esoteric concepts.1 Although many of the applications in textbooks and the chemical educational literature are biological and medicinal in nature, examples using soaps,2 essential oils, perfumes, and cosmetics can be traced back to the 1940s. There are several earlier articles published in this Journal that describe the chemical composition of essential oils,3 whereas more recent lab experiments focus on the synthesis of perfumes.4,5 Sulfonates of several compounds are used as additives in the perfume industry, especially for laundry and other cleaning detergents. One such sulfonate used as an additive to
