Ni Hyperaccumulation Experiment

The first thing I did in the lab is that I looked over the research paper by seeing that I need to find out which works best with nickel hyperaccumulation against pathogens. I made my hypothesis which was “Ni hyperaccumulation in Brassicaceae confers a defense against herbivore by poisoning the animals after eating the plant”. I set up my date to prove if Ni hyperaccumulation in plants protects from bugs. I have three plants that I am testing to see which of the three plants grows and is protect best over time with Ni hyperaccumulation. What did your data suggest? The data suggest that the unamended plants which grown 100% best with Ni hyperaccumulation over the passed ten days. On the 0 day Ni-amended suviced 100%, 2nd day 90%, 4th day…show more content…
I will check each day for ten days and see if the larvae a factor or not. Answer conclusion question 4 here. My results did support my hypothesis because the survival of the larvae was going down if you look at the group. Now go to 10.1B: Ni dependent effect lab. Describe what you did in virtual lab 10.1B. I first to see what question I should ask myself which is “is there is a critical level of Ni is toxic to insect larvae that feed on Ni hyperaccumulating plants?” I look for the best hypothesis to form by observing. The hypothesis that I am using is “a Ni concentration of 1000 mg/kg of plant tissue (the level used in defining a Ni hyperaccumulating plant) is sufficient to reduce the survival rate of attacking herbivores”. I set up my experiment set up four group, pour petite dish, and then record. What did your data suggest? My data suggest that 1000 mg/kg works best because it changes. Answer conclusion question 1 here. The herbivore will use his saliva to break down the plant and his digestive system will use an enzyme to finish the
