If presented with an ecological question, could you design a study using each method to answer the question? When writing a lab report, what information should be presented in each section? Why do we use error bars on graphs? How do you interpret them? Abiotic Factors I Daphnia If given data, could you draw a tolerance curve and label the zones (this may include extrapolation)? Could you interpret a tolerance curve and suggest biological meaning for each of the zones? What is a physiological response? What are some of the different ones that we talked about? Will tolerance curves be the same for all physiological responses? How and why did temperature affect Daphnia?
