Plant Responses to the Environment

2002- 2003 Fellow

In this lab, students learn about the food reserves in seeds, and they conduct experiments to test the relationships between seed size and length of seedling growth or amount of time a seedling can survive without light.

This lab is designed for use in Botany or Biology classes and can be easily modified for use with younger students.
