I was confused on how the experiments in questions 8 and 9 would differ. Wouldn't both experiments see how the release of plant volatiles (the dependent variable) is affected by the caterpillars chewing or the application of b-glucosidase enzyme to the cabbage plant (the independent variables)? All suggestions are welcome. Thank you! 8) Oral secretion products from chewing insects have been suggested as triggers that augment the release of plant volatiles. Caterpillars of Pieris brassicae species have a b-glucosidase enzyme present in their oral secretions that might trigger volatile emissions in cabbage plants. Design an experiment to determine whether this chemical is as effective as a chewing caterpillar of Pieris brassicae in eliciting a

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
