Answer the following questions after completing the lab exercise:

1. For each seed variety, why did you need to collect data from 3 pots for each infestation level to obtain reliable data? To have multiple tests

2. Which seed variety has the highest yield under conditions of no infestation? BT456

3. Which transgenic seed variety was most resistant to the ECB at high infestation levels? BT123

4. Which non-transgenic seed variety was most resistant to the ECB at high infestation levels? Golden

Plants are genetically engineered to be resistant to herbicides, produce their own pesticides, have viral resistance, and to convert nitrogen directly from the soil. But these transgenes can insert into the genetics of relatives through cross-pollination, creating superweeds resistant to herbicides, pests and viruses. This may increase pest’s immunities and antibiotic resistances, transfer of pathogenic genes, the creation of new viruses, and introduce allergens into the food supply. Worse, these problems will be faster growing, disease resistant, and heat, cold, and drought tolerant. These and mutations may cause irreversible disaster. Planting engineered herbicide resistant…

The purpose of this lab was to observe the effects of chemical warfare among plants. Plant seeds compete with other plants and seeds, for sunlight, and nutrients in order to germinate. In order to win dominance over other seeds, and reduce competition, plants produce and release a chemical in order to prevent other seeds from germination. This type of chemical warfare is referred to as allelopathy. Allelopathy exists in many parts of the plants such as leaves, roots, stems, or fruits, but not limited to just the plants. These toxic chemicals can also be found in the surrounding soil, to prevent other plants or seeds from absorbing proper nutrients to stimulate growth. Groups will test…

This experiment was conducted for a 140 day growing season in a controlled environment. The corn was planted and was then infested by a given amount of ECB. The first group tested was the golden corn. Three groups of golden corn were infested by three varying amounts of ECB. Group A was effected by no ECB, group B was infested by a low level of ECB and group C was infested by a high concentration of ECB. At the end of the growing season the stalks of corn were then inspected and measured for yield. Corn crop yield is measured by the…

Insect resistant or Bt crops produce a groups of protoxins known as the cry protoxins or Bt toxins. The Bt toxins have insecticidal effects on pests attempting to eat the crops. The toxins have been proven to be nontoxic in humans and other nontarget species both when applied as a spray and as a GMO. First, the Bt toxins were proven to be safe by the EPA in the 1970’s as a spray and later in the 1990’s the GMO crop version was proven to be safe by the…

This experiment had the purpose of testing temperature for bean and pea seed germination. 100 beans were taken and split into four groups of 25. Each Group of 25 beans was folded inside a damp paper towel. Two of the damp paper towels, with the beans inside, were put in a plastic bag and then moved to a warm place and the other two paper towels were put in a plastic bag and then moved to a cold room. The same process was repeated for the peas. It was hypothesized that the beans and peas that were put in the warm room would germinate fastest. When the seeds were taken out of the rooms for examination one week later all 25 of the beans that were in the warm room, in both rep one and rep two had germinated. As for the peas in the warm room, 15 of the 25 peas had germinated in rep one and in rep two 8 of the 25 peas had germinated. None of the beans and peas in the cold room had germinated at all in the first week. The second week the remaining 7 peas for rep one in the warm room had germinated and the remaining 10 peas from rep two in the warm room had germinated. In the cold room for the second week none of the beans had germinated. All 25 of the peas in the cold room, in reps one and two finally germinated in week two. The data shows that beans germinate in a warm room and peas tolerate warm temperatures, but germinate best in colder temperatures. Beans have a greater success rate of germinating in a warm environment then peas do, but peas have a greater success rate of germinating in a cold room.…

For this experiment to effectively there must be a set of five controls and one variable to test all possible variables on the effectiveness of the herbicide or bag method. The experimental group will be a stump that will be cut six inches from the ground, sprayed with herbicide and covered with three garbage bags to prevent exposure to air and sunlight, the bottom of the bag will be sealed with duct tape. The second honey suckle bush, the first control group, will use bag method independent of the herbicide. This bush will be cut six inches from the ground and wrapped with three garbage bags and sealed with duct tape. The next group will test sunlight exposure and its effect on the stump that’s been treated with herbicide. Two honeysuckle bushes that face towards the east will be needed for this experiment. Both bushes will be cut six inches from the ground. One will be treated with herbicide and the remaining will not. Finally, the last set of controls will need two honey suckle bushes that face towards the west. These bushes will also be cut six inches from the ground. One will be treated with the herbicide and one will not. Let the experiment run for 8 weeks. Remove the bags and document the growth on each of the respective stumps. Leave uncovered and return in two weeks to determine if any new growth has…
