v Your Laboratory Experience: Your attitude about the laboratories in Biology 1020 will to a great extent determine the outcome of your lab experience. If you are interested in learning about different organisms, and why they appear the way they do, then the laboratory should prove to be a pleasant and rewarding experience. The laboratories themselves are reasonably unstructured; it is important that you develop the mental discipline required to work your way independently through the exercises. The laboratories require that an appropriate amount of time and energy be spent observing the specimens. The labs are designed to occupy the amount of time allocated to them (nearly 3 hours), and you should plan to spend the full time in lab every week. Although some opportunities for review of materials are available to you via our internet resources, you will not have an opportunity to reexamine specimens from labs prior to the lab exams. We have made every effort to incorporate live material as much as possible into these laboratories.
