SCI203 Phase Lab Report: Identifying Environmental Hazards

In this lab, you will determine how an invasive species—the zebra and quagga mussel—affects other species in the freshwater lake.

Instructions: You will write a 1-page lab report using the scientific method to answer the following questions:

•Why do you see increases and decreases in the invasive species population?

•What are the implications associated with these alterations to the ecosystem as a whole?

Part I: Using the lab animation, fill in the data table below to help you generate your hypothesis, outcomes, and analysis. FILLED IN and Ready

Part II: Write a 1-page lab report using the following scientific method sections:

•Purpose

oState the purpose of the lab.

•Introduction

oThis is an investigation of what is currently known about the question being asked. Use background information from credible references to write a short summary about concepts in the lab. List and cite references in APA style.

•Hypothesis/Predicted Outcome

oA hypothesis is an educated guess. Based on what you have learned and written about in the Introduction, state what you expect to be the results of the lab procedures.

•Methods

oSummarize the procedures that you used in the lab. The Methods section should also state clearly how data (numbers) were collected during the lab; this will be reported in the Results/Outcome section.

•Results/Outcome

oProvide here any results or data that were generated while doing the lab procedure.

•Discussion/Analysis

oIn this section, state clearly whether you obtained the expected results. Also discuss the results and what you learned from this lab.

oNote: You can use the lab data to help you discuss the results and what you learned.

Provide 3 references in APA format. This includes a reference list and in-text citations for references used in the Introduction section.

Give your paper a title and identify each section as specified above. Although the hypothesis will be a 1-sentence answer, the other sections will need to be paragraphs to adequately explain your experiment.
