BIO 212: Principles of Biology Lab

Terms and Descriptions

Principles of modern biology emphasize evolution, ecology, population genetics, and behavior of organisms.  

Ecology: the branch of biology that deals with the relations of organisms to one another and to their physical surroundings. 

RAPID: the unique aspect of this project is the intended length and scope of the project - RAPID. While research can often take months or years to complete, you will conduct your field or lab research over just a few hours. Similarly, many published scientific papers in ecology are over 5,000 words, however your papers will be only 500 words – yet they will contain all the typical aspects of a paper including abstract, introduction, methods, results, and discussion, plus one or two figures or tables.
