Leaves come in all shapes and sizes, but will the leaves of the same species vary significantly
from tree to tree? The following experiment sought to test this theory and was done by collecting
leaves from tw
Often species vary depending on selective pressures of the particular environment they
live in. Darwins theories explained this. He studied the various finches on the Galapagos
islands, these results were available on the website www.bioquest.or
The survival of an organism is directly dependent on how well suited it is for its environment.
This includes its physical features along with its ability to detect and recognize dangers the
The diversity of bird species in Indiana varies greatly with time and location within the state.
This makes positively identifying birds a difficult task for even the most experienced bird
Life History of Sockeye Salmon, A Salmonid Species
The Sockeye salmon, Oncorhynchus nerka, begins its anadromous life by emerging from the
gravels of freshwater lakes and streams. In lakes the fish commonly spends one to three years
rearing before smoltif
The purpose of this study was to determine a combined population estimation for the two
species of chickadees at the Koinonia Biological Field Station near Pierceton, Indiana. The study
was done by capturin
CatLab experiment to determine inheritance mechanism for gray versus black coat color, and for

Laboratory 11: Animal Structure and Function: How Worms Wiggle
Background (no prelab due this week!)
In this lab, the structure-function relationships of an apparently simple function, locomotion
(movement) of an earthworm will be analyzed. Observations

How did plants adapt to life on land?
How do bryophytes (mosses) survive on land without vascular tissues?
What are the advantages of a vascular system?
How are seeds an adaptation to a dry terrestrial environment?
Species richness is the number of species in a given environment. This measurement is
known to vary habitat to habitat. This experiment was the study and comparison of three
ecosystems and their species
