Daphnia lab report - download as word doc (doc / docx), pdf file (pdf), text file (txt) or read online. However, some the results from the graph varied because we didn't use the same size daphnia some of them were either pregnant or were having babies which could have affected the results because the bigger the daphnia the bigger the surface area the higher the heart rate to improve the experiment i would have. View notes - the final draft for daphnia lab report from by 124l at university of alabama at birmingham the effects of temperature, acetylcholine, and adrenaline on the heart rate of daphnia. Characterize them as good lab specimen internal structures are visible under a dissecting microscope due to the transparency of d magna another beneficial aspect of using d magna is that caffeine is not found in its natural environment thus, d magna have not built up a previous tolerance to the drug. Because of the variability of results between individual daphnia, it is not appropriate to draw conclusions from one set of results each pair (or group) of a drug that slows heart rate is called a negative chronotrope this is demonstrated in this experiment, where acetylcholine is used to slow the rate of the.
Experiment report for: 'the affect of caffeine on daphnia's heartbeat' introduction: aim: the aim of this experiment is to understand the affect of the drug caffeine on the rate of a daphnia's heartbeat this is to understand the affect of caffeine on a human's heart rate and the use of daphnia keeps the. The target of this experiment was to study the effects of alcohol and caffeine on the heart, using the daphnia magna as the test subject however, because it is difficult to perform experiments of this nature on humans and get accurate results, we decided to use daphnia magna as a substitute for a human. 1 general biology ii lab report ii title: the effect of temperature change on the heart rate of daphnia magna 2 abstract the water flea daphnia magna plays a central role in the aquatic food chain and serves as food for other freshwater organisms such as fish its habitat exhibits acute variations in temperature which. Experiment ecology: daphnia are sensitive to poor water conditions and therefore serve as bio-indicators (ie, organisms which when present or absent what would you add to or change in this draft of the experiment to make it easy for students in future semester to repeat and obtain the same results.
I sent my water samples to the lab, and within three weeks i had my results this became another one of my rituals i also tried finding additional people that might know something about the growth forming on my daphnia magna i contacted many people, including dieter ebert in switzerland, who studies parasites of the. In this experiment on the crustacean, daphnia, tudents must collect data on how daphnia respond to changes in their environment take a sample daphnia and expose it to 1% ethanol and count the heart rate by observing the crustacean under a microscope open ended section allows students to explore other factors that.
Use version 1 if you want your students to use their own paper to write their own lab reports version 2 contains student friendly worksheets on which students record their data and answers 2 a 4-page handout for students to design their own experiment to test the effects of caffeine and alcohol on the heart rate of daphnia. Abstractfor this experiment we tested the effects of different adrenalin concentrations (0001% 001% 01%) on the daphnia flea the daphnia was placed on a slide with cover slip in order to examine its heartbeat by using the microscopeaimin this la.
Temperature, species/age/sex/size of daphnia, oxygen supply, ph, volume of solution, time safety if a stroboscope observe daily, measure stem length before and after experiment, count numbers of leaves limitations 5 interpret results using biological principles and concepts, discuss limitations and modifications. Water results show that exposure of daphnia to alcohol affects its heart rate as the concentration of alcohol increases, the heart rate decreases this observation is true for all the alcoholic beverages used in the experiment keywords:toxicity, daphnia, alcoholic beverages, heart rate 1 introduction. In our previous study, we found that biallelic mutants of daphnia magna eyeless ( dma-ey, ortholog of mammalian pax6) gene showed compound eye long ssodns, 52 g0 adults were survived from 98 injected eggs (53% survival, table 2) in one experiment (details in supplementary table s1. Heart rate, glucose levels, phototactic behavior, and hypoxic tolerance were recorded during experiment at the end of the study, changes in the mrna levels of ion channel genes were assessed in response to exposure to ethanol using quantitative polymerase chain reaction (pcr) techniques results:.
Making the most of the daphnia heart rate lab: optimizing the use of ethanol, nicotine & caffeine corotto, frank we determined the effects of three concentrations of ethanol, nicotine, and caffeine and of a control solution on heart rate in daphnia ethanol at publication type: journal articles reports - research. Experiment: investigating the effects of a 5% ethanol and 5% caffeinated solution on daphnia heart rate methyl cellulose and cotton fibers help minimize mov. Daphnia lab report biology 103 lab in lab we tested an organism called a daphnia or water flea the experiment was designed to see how different conditions affected the daphnia's heart rate the lab was designed to see how well different microorganisms handle unnatural stress daphnia have a heart that is clear color.
