Introduction and lab safety. Introduction / by Victor Sampson -- Safety in the science classroom, laboratory, or field sites -- Life sciences core idea 1 : from molecules to organisms : structures and processes. Osmosis and diffusion : why do red blood cells appear bigger after being exposed to distilled water? -- Cell structures : how should the unknown microscopic organism be classified? -- Cell cycle : do plant and animal cells spend the same proportion of time in each stage of the cell cycle? -- Normal and abnormal cell division : which of these patients could have cancer? -- Photosynthesis : why do temperature and light intensity affect the rate of photosynthesis in plants? -- Cellular respiration : how does the type of food source affect the rate of cellular respiration in yeast? -- Transpiration : how does leaf surface area affect the movement of water through a plant? -- Enzymes : how do changes in temperature and pH levels affect enzyme activity? -- Life sciences core idea 2 : ecosystems : interactions, energy, and dynamics -- Population growth : how do changes in the amount of nature of the plant life available in an ecosystem influence herbivore population growth over time? -- Predator-prey population size relationships : which factors affect the stability of a predator-prey population size relationship? -- Ecosystems and biodiversity : how does food web complexity affect the biodiversity of an ecosystem? -- Explanations for animal behavior : why do great white sharks travel over long distances? -- Environmental influences on animal behavior : how has climate change affected bird migration? -- Interdependence of organisms : why is the sport fish population of Lake Grace decreasing in size? -- Competition for resources : how has the spread of the Eurasian collared-dove affected different populations of native bird species? -- Life sciences core idea 3 : heredity : inheritance and variation of traits. Mendelian genetics : why are the stem and leaf color traits of the Wisconsin fast plant inherited in a predictable pattern? -- Chromosomes and karyotypes : how do two physically healthy parents produce a child with Down syndrome and a second child with cri du chat syndrome? -- DNA structure : what is the structure of DNA? -- Meiosis : how does the process of meiosis reduce the number of chromosomes in reproductive cells? -- Inheritance of blood type : are all of Mr. Johnson's children his biological offspring? -- Models of inheritance : which model of inheritance best explains how a specific trait is inherited in fruit flies? -- Life sciences core idea 4 : biological evolution : unity and diversity. Biodiversity and the fossil record : how has biodiversity on Earth changed over time? -- Mechanisms of evolution : why will the characteristics of a bug population change in different ways in response to different types of predation? -- Descent with modification : does mammalian brain structure support or refute the theory of descent with modification? -- Mechanisms of speciation : why does geographic isolation lead to the formation of a new species? -- Human evolution : how are humans related to other members of the family Hominidae? -- Whale evolution : how are whales related to other mammals?
