Ryan, Amy B.; Elwess, Nancy L.
Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, v43 n2 p38-43 Dec 2017
This investigative laboratory activity engages students in observing, recording, graphing and analyzing pulsation rates in a commonly used laboratory organism, blackworms. This activity stresses how various drugs can impact the pulsation rate in blackworms at varying concentrations. In addition, we have incorporated two new ways to view the blackworms under the microscope.
