1. What occurred
in each microcosm?
the results of your microcosm work.
your results consistent with the equations for photosynthesis and respiration?
Why or why not? (Refer to the reading: Introduction
to Cellular Respiration and Photosynthesis)
4. What trends
did you observe in the WOW data you collected in surface water over the
course of a complete day?
why it is common for oxygen to be abundant near the surface and nearly-depleted
near the bottom of the lakes in summer. Did the lake you selected show
the relationships that exist between oxygen and pH levels in the profile
7. Were the
trends observed in WOW data consistent with the equations for photosynthesis
the "Understanding Lake
Ecology" section or a text, diagram the carbon cycle in the
lake you sampled using WOW data. Be sure to include primary producers,
consumers, and decomposers.
