       Lab # 11 Animal Behavior



A group of students wanted to study the effect of nitrogen fertilizer on plant growth, so they took
two similar plants and set them on a window sill for a two week observation period. They watered
each plant the same amount, but gave one a small dose of fertilizer with each watering. They
collected data by counting the total number of new leaves on each plant and also measured the
height of each plant in centimeters.

   44. Which of the following is a significant flaw in this experimental setup?
       W. There is no variable factor
       X. There is no control
       Y. There is no repetition
       Z. Measurable results cannot be expected


       Students placed five pillbugs on the dry side of a choice chamber and five pillbugs on the
       wet side. They collected data as to the number on each side every 30 seconds for 10
       minutes. After 6 minutes, eight or nine pillbugs were continually on the wet side of the
       chamber, and several were under the filter paper.


   45. Which of the following is not a reasonable conclusion from these results?
       W. It takes the pillbugs several minutes to explore their surroundings and select a
       preferred habitat.
       X. Pillbugs prefer a moist environment
       Y. Pillbugs prefer a dark environment
       Z. Pillbugs demonstrate no significant habitat preference


   46. If a student wanted to determine whether pillbugs prefer a moist or dry environment, what
       would be the best way to analyze data from the experiment?
       W. Total the number of pillbugs on the dry side throughout the entire experiment and
       compare this with the number on the wet side throughout the experiment
       X. After waiting five minutes for the pillbugs to acclimate, count the number of pillbugs on
       the dry side every 30 seconds for five minutes. Total and average the results, and compare
       this with the number of pillbugs on the wet side during this same time interval.
       Y. Compare the number of pillbugs on the dry side at the end of 10 minutes with the number
       of pillbugs on the wet side at the end of 10 minutes
       Z. Divide the number of pillbugs on the dry side throughout the experiment by the number
       on the wet side throughout the experiment
47. Which of the following hypotheses is stated best?
   W. If pillbugs are allowed free movement, then more will be found in a moist environment
   than in a dry environment
   X. If pillbugs like a moist environment, then they will move to the wet side of a choice
   chamber
   Y. If an experiment with pillbugs is run for 10 minutes, then more pillbugs will be found in
   the most favorable environment
   Z. Pillbugs are found in moist habitats, so I predict that more will be found where it is wet


   Lab #12 Dissolved Oxygen and Aquatic Primary Productivity




48. What is the percent oxygen saturation for a water
   sample at 25°C that has 7 mg O2/l?
   W. 65%
   X. 48%
   Y. 35%
   Z. 100%



49. In which aquatic environment would you expect dissolved oxygen to be highest?
   W. A mountain lake that is clear and cold
   X. A bog where the water is shallow and warm and there is a mat of aquatic plants
   Y. A marine tidepool
   Z. A cold mountain stream dropping over a series of small rock falls


   Study figure 12.3 to answer the following question
50. At what light intensity do you expect there to be no net productivity?
   W. Any intensity below 100%
   X. Only at intensities of 0% and 2%
   Y. Any intensity below 10%
   Z. Any intensity above 25%
51. What is meant by “net productivity” and how is it calculated in a sample aquatic
   environment?
   W. It is a measure of the organic products of photosynthesis that accumulate after cellular
   respiration by those organisms is taken into account, and it is calculated by subtracting the
   amount of oxygen in the dark bottle from the amount in the light bottle
   X. It is a measure of the amount of respiration in a test area, and it is calculated by
   subtracting the amount of oxygen present in the light bottle from the amount in the dark
   bottle
   Y. It is the total amount of carbon fixed, and it is calculated by measuring the amount of
   oxygen present in a bottle kept in the light
   Z. It is the amount of oxygen produced during the day, and it is calculated by subtracting
   the amount of oxygen in the light bottle from the amount in the dark bottle



   A biology class used two aquatic cultures as described below for the experiment with
   screens that reduce light. They measured dissolved oxygen initially and then after 24 hours.


                Culture A                                           Culture B
         Little phytoplankton                                Rich in phytoplankton
          Rich in zooplankton                                 Rich in zooplankton
      Low initial dissolved oxygen                        High initial dissolved oxygen


52. What results would you predict for this experiment?
   W. The net productivity in culture A will be much higher than that in culture B
   X. Culture B will have both higher gross productivity and higher net productivity than
   culture A
   Y. The net productivity for culture A will be negative at greater light intensity than that
   for culture B
   Z. Cultures A and B will show similar results because of the comparable quantities of
   zooplankton
