Part 1: The Basics
What is ecology?
The study of how organisms interact with their environments.
What is the difference between Habitat & Niche? Provide examples.
A habitat is the typical ecosystem w

A catalyst is a substance that helps to speed up a chemical reaction. More
specifically, it lowers the activation energy needed for a chemical reaction thus
allowing the reaction to happen at
I supported my first hypothesis which stated if the concentration of enzyme is
increased then the rate of reaction will also increase. This is because enzymes assist
reactions allowing them to re
Dissolved Oxygen Lab
Dissolved oxygen levels are a very important limiting factor for aquatic organisms.
Aquatic organisms rely on dissolved oxygen levels in order to properly respire, and low

Mitosis Discussion Questions
1. What type of cell would have a cell plate?
A plant cell would have a cell plate because the stiff cell wall cannot simply split in two
like the soft cell membrane of an animal cell, so a cell
For this lab we will be simulating the steps of meiosis with red and yellow pop beads and
string. Meiosis is an essential component of reproduction in that it is responsible for the
Themes and Concepts
The AP Biology Examination continues to emphasize the concepts and themes of
biology. Less weight is placed on specific facts than on the "big ideas" that tie
Topics, concepts, and themes all give structure to an AP Biol
Diffusion and Osmosis Lab
For this experiment we will be examining the processes of osmosis and diffusion. We
will set up an experiment using dialysis tubing to simulate the diffusion of solutes from a
Diffusion and Osmosis Post-Lab
My first hypothesis which stated, if water molecules will move into the bag then solute
molecules will move out of the bag in order to reach homeostasis of equal concentration

Cellular Respiration Post-Lab
I was able to support my hypothesis which stated that, if germinating seeds where at
room temperature then they would consume the greatest amount of oxygen. This is because
Cellular Respiration Pre-Lab
For this lab we will be analyzing the effect of temperature on cellular respiration and
whether or not germinating or non-germinating have a higher rate of cellular respiration. Cell
Chi Square Analysis Pre-Lab
Chi square analysis is a method of measuring the percent error in an experiment in order to help determine what factors
play a role in the outcomes of experiments. In genetics, for exam
