Chapter 52 Hypothesis #1: There are genetic differences between populations of plants found at different elevations Experiment #1: If the differences are genetic, then the elevation of the plants should not affect the height. Therefore the plants should be planted on ground level with the exact same conditions and see how height is affected then. 1. OBSERVATION: The plants form low elevations were generally taller than plants from high elevations 2. CRITICAL QUESTION: Is the elevation of the plant related to their height? 3. DEVELOP HYPOTHESIS (#2): i) The species has developmental flexibility and can assume tall or short growth forms, depending on local abiotic factors. [NULL] ii) The species does not have a developmental flexibility and cannot assume tall or short growth, depending on local abiotic factors. [ALTERNATE] 4. MAKE PREDICTION: The local resources affect height. 5. PERFORM EXPERIMENTS (#2): If the plants are affected by their environment, the height of the plant would vary depending on the plant’s location. Therefore in order to test this, the seeds should switch elevations. This means that the seed gathered from the high elevation should be planted at low elevations and vice-versa. 6. COLLECT AND ANALYZE DATA: i) Possible result #1: No difference in height between low and high elevations. ii) Possible result #2: Significant difference in height between low and high elevations. 7. CONCLUSION:
