Problem: What effects will glucose have on diffusion, osmosis, and water potential?
Background: All living things have certain requirements they must satisfy in order to remain alive. These include exchanging gases (usually CO2 and
This lab helps further our understanding of essential principles behind diffusion and osmosis. Permeability, concentration gradients, plasmolysis, water potential, and equilibrium were also concepts that were delved into in this lab. Understanding how diffusion and osmosis works is es

Territoriality - behavior of animals that enables individuals to occupy and dominate an area. Territory is an area where one or more individuals defend the area. Thus the two are interpedently interacting with each other to defend the area.

The eight major themes of biology are seen throughout the biology course and are expressed in every chapter. In the chapters on cells (6,7,9,10,11,12, and 13), there were many examples of the themes of biology. The ones that related to these chapters the most were: Science is a proce
