Unformatted text preview: In our experiment, we placed larvae beneath controlled beams of light of different known intensities. After one minute in the light, the final larval position was marked and the displacement measured from the initial starting location. The data colleted was compared to the overall displacement of Sarcophaga larvae in complete darkness. In the end, we found a relationship between light intensity and larval displacement. Upon conducting a Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test, the results revealed that the mean displacement of Sarcophaga larvae significantly increased at the tested light intensities compared to the mean displacement at no light. Our hypothesis was proved through completion of this laboratory experiment....
