BIO115 - Principles of Biology - Daphnia Lab


Researching the Effects of Ethanol and Caffeine on Physiological Processes

In the lab, "Scientific Investigation Using Daphnia", you will explore the effects that ethanol and caffeine have on the heart rate of Daphnia. Before beginning scientific experiments, an important step is to do some preliminary library research in order to develop background knowledge on a subject.

In this case, you will use library resources to gather information on the effects of caffeine and ethanol on physiological processes in general. The following tutorial will assist you in the process so that you will:

  • Gain experience using the Academic Search Complete database to locate high quality sources of scientific information
  • Learn the importance of identifying appropriate terminology when conducting a database search

When you have completed the tutorial, you will take a brief, 5 question quiz in the Blackboard site for the class.
