Action Biology. Advanced Placement for the Second Year. First Edition.
Davis, Mary Pitt
This document provides biology experiments designed for students who have completed a first year biology course. This self contained laboratory booklet contains four sections. In section 1, "Instrumentation in the Study of Cells," discussion sections and suggestions for teacher demonstrations are provided. It also includes some basic materials which should have been introduced in the first year biology course, but does so in greater depth. Section 2, "Diversity of Life and Reproduction," is primarily descriptive and covers phyla normally not explored in a first year course. Section 3, "Animal Growth and Behavior," contains primarily experimental laboratories ranging from a traditional descriptive dissection of a cat to the latest in biological inquiry, the creation of hybridomas and monoclonal antibodies. Section 4, "Plant Growth Relationships," contains laboratories which are experimental in design and comprised of both classic experiments in the field, such as Darwin's phototropism experiment, and relatively new experiments, such as those involving autoradiography.
