Ashley Rollyson 3/21/07 Bio lab write up Aerobic Respiration in Germinating Peas The purpose in this experiment was to determine if germinating peas carried our aerobic respiration. To do this, germinating peas, glass beads, non-germinating peas, 3 test tubes, cotton balls, KOH, capillary tubing, 3 clamps, a stopwatch, and methylene blue were needed to conduct the experiment. An article found by Applement, goes into explaining oxidation in plants. Basically, oxidation requires the use of oxygen, which in itself would conclude that these peas will carry out aerobic respiration. In an article found in the Botanical Gazette , the same concept is described. The concept that germinating seeds use oxygen for respiration is a widely examined thought. In a final article by author Sally Kelly, a very similar experiment was examined. In this experiment, it was shown that the oxygen produced in the respiration displaced water. The methods of the experiment involved filling 3 tubes with cotton and KOH.
