Unformatted text preview: heat, cold, it does not matter what variables you allow. None of these containers of muddy soil will produce any frogs. On the other hand, if you conduct the same experiment but instead of using muddy soil, you use tadpoles in the containers, at least one of them will end up producing frogs. Care needs to be taken since these are living organisms and they will need certain things to survive while in captivity. Things that will need to be monitored are; food, air, light, water, quality of water and proper temperatures. You can conduct similar experiments with non-living things and no of them will produce a living organism.
