Genesis Cardenas, Lab 1 UCLA LIBRARY Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library EEB 100L Research Notebook 1. Review your Assignment Look at the assignment prompt given to you by your professor. Write out the key deliverables from the assignment in the table below. How can finding and analyzing previous research studies help you create these deliverables? Deliverables How can finding and analyzing previous research studies help you create these deliverables? 1. References 2. Background information 3. Limitations from previous research This will allow us to obtain more information on the experiment we are conducting and also helping us determine ways of approaching on our hypothesis. This will help us raise similar questions and answer our hypothesis as precisely as possible by knowing possible limitations and errors. 2A. Generating Research Topics and Questions What are you curious about? What would you like to explore? With your group, create a list of possible topics and related questions. How does Fungi impact the growth of a plant in terms of height of plants and length of roots? How does different colored light impact the growth in terms of height and biomass in flowering plants? How do crickets respond in the presence of a predators? Tip: Start by generating topic ideas and the questions you have about those topics. Next, generate questions you expect your audience will want you to answer. 2B. Specify and narrow your research questions: What's achievable this quarter? Narrow your topics by identifying the plant or animal, the conditions and variables, and the measures you might use. Consider how might you address this topic with the time and resources you have this quarter. These do not have to be your final answers. Instead, this is your chance to explore some possibilities. Research Topic Plant(s) or Animal(s) Conditions/variables Measures/tests Drought tolerance of plants Sunflowers? Alfalfa? …? Drought? Heat? Dehydration? Germination? Growth? …? Impact of Fungi on Plant growth Fast growing plants: sunflowers and marigolds -the presence of fungi in soil plants are exposed compared to plants not exposed to fungi -temperature: 70C -water 2 times a day -measure height of plant in inches

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
