Unformatted text preview: M ichael Mi ller Biology 1209 Section 6 22 April 2008 I n t roduction In this laboratory experiment, we studied the growth rates of three different groups of Chlamydomonas and how different temperatures affect each groups growth rate. The three d ifferent g roups consisted of a control groups, a group at 4° C, a group at 30° C. These Chlamydomonas are bacteria that are known to thr ive in extreme temperatures (Mitchell). Each group of Chlamydomonas consisted of 1 ml of Chlamydomonas placed in a solution with 4 ml of mixture media. We will experiment over a course of 21 days which temperature the solutions will r espond best to. I personally predicted that the Chlamydomonas solution placed in the 4° C environment would develop quicker than the control solution and the solution placed in a 30° C environment. I t is a known fact that these Chlamydomonas grow best in severe t emperatures, versus normal room temperatures. My hypothesis was that the Chlamydomonas solution placed in a 4° C solution would grow the fastest, the solution set i n a 30° C incubator would grow 2nd fastest, followed by the control group which would grow t he slowest. ...
