-Nature Due 3/2-Don't wait until the last minute!For the isopod lab you needed to do background information so make sure you include that in your typed up lab. Isopods belong to the kingdom Animalia and the Phlyum arthropoda with the sub phylum crustacea. Other organisms in this phylum are krill, lobsters, and crabs.
My group for the lab experimented with the moisture of the environment for the isopod. Other groups may have chosen different things.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5BXNtJSq7s here is a video with other types of experiments. The music is also REALLY good.
During the experiment we did 3 different trials with 10 pill bugs. Everyone should have had multiple trials along with multiple test subjects. Our experiment contained 3 different chambers. One with half a pipette full of water, one with a full pipette of water, and one dry chamber. The pill bugs seemed to like the half-pipette area most.
You should have found an environment that Pill bugs like more based on your testing.
Hope this sums up everything!
