What We Did? Our experiment has to do with finding out whether or not intraspecific competition affects multiple characteristics of Brassica rapa. Intraspecific Competition the negative effect on fitness When two organisms that belong to the same species use the same limiting resource. We allowed the plants to grow in two types of treatments (high and low density), then

Other’s Who Have Ventured into this Area Intraspecific Competition There have been many studies done in this part of ecology Mr. Irwin A. Ungar and his studies with Intraspecific competition on growth, reproduction, and survival of Salt Marsh Sand Spurry’s Brassica rapa Seed predation, pathogen infection, and life- history of Brassica rapa conducted by Mr.

Unformatted text preview: Light Fast Plants Brassica rapa is commonly known as fast plants due to their quick six week life cycle. Reasons why B. rapa is ideal for this research: Easy to cultivate Short life cycle Lack of seed dormancy Ease of breeding Why Does This Matter? Agriculture Affects our lives in many different aspects Studying plant competition can yeild more efficient crops More profit for farmers MORE PEOPLE EAT!! If we do not have agriculture we will die Hypothesis Null Hypothesis: There is no significant difference in B. rapa biomass, pod per plant, and height between low and high density treatments. Alternative Hypothesis: There is a significant difference in B. rapa biomass, pod per plant, and height between low and high density treatments....
