Go to A Semester-Long Research Problem Approach to Senior Undergraduate Laboratories in Ecology
A Semester-Long Research Problem Approach to Senior Undergraduate Laboratories in Ecology
Laboratories in biology are geared to periods of designated length and, so, are dependent on reliable methodologies. Reliable means repeatable; surprises are (at least implicitly) not tolerated. Yet, ...

Go to An Analysis of Bone/Muscle Movement
An Analysis of Bone/Muscle Movement
By manipulating a simple kinematic model representing the leg and foot, students can get hands on information about the interaction of bones and muscles in humans. Having worked with the model, they t...

Go to An Investigation of the Behavior of the Pea Aphid, <i>Acyrthosiphon pisum</i>
An Investigation of the Behavior of the Pea Aphid, Acyrthosiphon pisum
The pea aphid, Acyrthosiphon pisum, is a versatile laboratory organism. This experiment investigates the response of pea aphids to an alarm pheromone normally produced in response to predator a...

Go to Building Molecular Models of DNA, Protein, and Lipids
Building Molecular Models of DNA, Protein, and Lipids
Molecular models of DNA, protein (alpha-helix and beta-pleated sheet), and lipids are built to scale. With a minimum of scientific jargon, these laboratory exercises effectively display the important ...

Go to Ecological Crisis 2050 A.D.
Ecological Crisis 2050 A.D.
The environment has failed faster than predicted, and people are being housed in what domed cities are available. Unfortunately, there are not enough domed cities for everyone, and some people must be...

Go to From Hypothesis to Manuscript: Small Group Research Projects in Ecology for Introductory Biology and Ecology Courses
From Hypothesis to Manuscript: Small Group Research Projects in Ecology for Introductory Biology and Ecology Courses
This exercise, which runs over two 3-hour lab periods, is designed to stimulate creative and critical scientific thought in biology students. The emphasis is on process, not data. The exercise is prec...

Go to Human DNA Fingerprinting by Polymerase Chain Reaction
Human DNA Fingerprinting by Polymerase Chain Reaction
This experiment uses polymerase chain reaction to demonstrate the polymorphic nature of human DNA. Students obtain samples of their own DNA using a simple mouthwash procedure. PCR is used to amplify a...
