Biology 342 Fall 08
Labs for Animal Behavior
The topic and animals for the first 7 weeks are set, however students should come to lab prepared to think creatively as there will not be a step-by-step protocol for every lab. Primary reference papers will provide "inspiration".
The second half of the semester is dedicated to "independent projects" in which students will work in pairs. The background, methods, data and conclusions of this work will be presented in a poster format during lab the last week of class.
Every student is expected to keep their own lab notebook and not rely
on the notebook of a labmate.
Raw data need not be copied from one notebook to another. But each lab
notebook should include a clear indication of where the Raw Data are (another
lab notebook, or a computer file).
