Five pill bugs were placed in each dish and were observed for five minutes, they way the pill bugs moved, where they were located in the dish, there were three different sections. One was underground, another scatter on top of the soil and the last around edges. The results were that pill bugs preferred a warmer (40C) temperature since they were located around the same spots as their control temperature; their behavior wasn’t altered with that temperature.

Our class observed each potato for two days. We noticed that on the first day the potato in the dark had three eyes and the potato in the light had six eyes. On the second day we noticed that the potato in the dark had four sprouts and the potato in the light had two sprouts. Data suggests that the potato grew better in the dark. It was a different outcome than what I thought.
Question: How do different salinities affect a seeds ability to germinate? 2 pt Hypothesis: I hypothesize that the seeds in a lower salinity will germinate more. 2 points Prediction: If seeds are place in a bag with a lower salinity, then they are going to germinate more than those in a higher salinity solution. 2 points Materials: • • 60 red kidney beans solutions of 0.0% salt (tap water), 0.20% salt, 0.6.0% salt, 1.0% salt, 1.5% salt 5 paper napkins New package • • 5 plastic baggies with holes cut in them for
Abstract The objective in the experiment was to test if when mice were given Creatine would they grow more than mice that were given a normal dietary supplement. Two mice were given the Creatine and the other served as controls. The mice were weighted multiple times over a two month span and the mice that were given the Creatine did indeed gain weight faster than the mice that were on a normal dietary supplement. Although two of the mice died in the process the original hypothesis was proven correct. Introduction The objective of the project was to test and examine mice over a time span of two months.
It is found in tropical regions, in the United States, in Australia, and in several countries in Europe. It likes dry and grassy grounds. Only the female is dangerous, it is recognized by its bright spots under its belly. The most dangerous for humans is the American black widow spider. People are not usually threatened by spiders.
Hookworm lives in the small intestine of hosts such as humans, cats and dogs, where it is able to mate and mature. Ancylostoma duodenale is abundant throughout the world like Europe, North Africa, India, china, Southeast Asia, Caribbean, South America, and some part of the United State. Hookworm is a small cylindrical worm, they are greyish white in color. The size of the males are 8 mm to 11 mm long. While, the females are 10 mm to 13 mm long.
Energy & Matter for Critter I. PART ONE * TraFly is a Carnivore because it’s diet consists of insects, beetles, ants, and caterpillars. The source of carbohydrates comes from crickets, red ants, and June beetles. Out of those, crickets have the most carbohydrates. The source of protein comes from caterpillars, crickets, red ants, and June beetles.
Samantha VanderVeen Mrs. Flegel AP Biology 10 September 2012 Environmental Effects on Isopods In this lab, there was testing of three different environment variables that could affect the lifestyle of an isopod. We used household items such as makeshift tin foil containers, strawberries and potatoes, wet paper towel, a lamp and piece of brown cardstock, along with about 50 isopods to participate in this experiment. Allowing us to determine what kind of environment isopods prefer. We were able to conclude that isopods prefer a dark, damp atmosphere with a large supply of a starchy food source. As a whole, the class was asked to create and carry out at least three environmental differences that would help create and single out variables to help find the most desirable environment for the isopods.
Aly Pulford, Summer 2011 Trichogramma Wasps: Fighters of garden foes Beneficial Insects Insects are not the most glamorous of all animals on earth, and often receive disgust from their fellow earth habitants: humans. But there are some six-legged creatures that deserve praise for their predatory skills that not only keep their species alive, but benefit farming and gardening humans all over the earth. One of these beneficial insects is the trichogramma wasp. The trichogramma wasp, a member of the especially diverse hymenoptera order, measures only 0.18mm in length as an adult, has a narrow abdomen, short antennae and red colored eyes. This wasp has two pairs of wings and an ovipositor on the female.
Immunocompromised patients are contagious during the entire period as new lesions keep appearing. Crusted lesions are not contagious. Chickenpox has been observed in other primates, including chimpanzees and gorillas. There are several theories regarding the origin of the term chicken pox. It is often stated to be a modification of chickpeas (based on resemblance of the vesicles to chickpeas), or due to the rash resembling chicken pecks.
