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. Each tube was given 2/3 of either germinating seeds, nongerminating seeds, or glass

    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.
