Name and Title: Include your name, instructor's name, date, and name of lab.

Objective(s):
In your own words, what was the purpose of this lab?

Hypothesis:
In this section, please include the if/then statements you developed during your lab activity. These statements reflect your predicted outcomes for the experiment.

If predators are increased, then the cricket frog population will (increase/decrease/stay the same) over the span of five years.

If pollution is increased, then the cricket frog population will (increase/decrease/stay the same) over the span of five years.

If the amount of food available is increased, then the cricket frog population will (increase/decrease/stay the same) over the span of five years.

Procedure:
The procedures are listed in your virtual lab. You do not need to repeat them here. Please be sure to identify the test variable (independent variable), outcome variable (dependent variable), and control group for this experiment.

Reminder: The test variable is the item that is changing in this investigation. The outcome variable is the item that you are measuring in this investigation. The control group is the group in the experiment where the factors being tested are not applied. It allows scientists to set a baseline to compare the experimental groups that do have factors applied to them.

Test variable (independent variable):

Outcome variable (dependent variable):

Control group:

Data:
Record your data from each trial in the data chart below:

Type of Factor Beginning Frog Count Simulation 1 (Low) Simulation 2 (High)
Predators (alligators)
Pollution
Food (mosquitoes)
Graphs
Use the graphs you printed from the data chart in the virtual lab and analyze the data. Make a note of any trends that you discover.

Predators (alligators):
Pollution:
Food (mosquitoes):

Conclusion:
Your conclusion will include a summary and an interpretation of the lab results. Please write in complete sentences.

Which limiting factor(s) in this lab simulation are biotic?
Which limiting factor(s) in this lab simulation are abiotic?
Which limiting factor impacted the cricket frog population the most? Use evidence to support your answer.
Which limiting factor impacted the cricket frog population the least? Use evidence to support your answer.
Mosquitoes can carry and transmit disease to animals and humans. Explain how the cricket frog plays an important role in limiting the spread of mosquito-borne illnesses like West Nile virus and malaria.
Predict the long-term effects of these limiting factors on the cricket frog population in the pond ecosystem.

  1. how long did it take u to type all this? u should have  a medal for taking the time  to type all this out

    Explanation:

  2. IT CAN PROVIDE RESEARCH THAT CAN FIGHT THEORIES AND ARGUE OTHERS

    HOPE THIS HELPS THIS IS MY FIRST ANSWER

    (PLZ MARK ME BRAINLEST)

  3. In this section, please include the if/then statements you developed during your lab activity for each location on the map. These statements reflect your predicted outcomes for the experiment.

    Location One: Select two events that you predict will be observed. If I explore two continental plates at a convergent boundary, then I will observe:

    earthquakes

    faults

    ocean formation

    mountains

    volcanoes

    island chains

    seafloor spreading

    Location Two: Select three events that you predict will be observed. If I explore two continental plates at a divergent boundary, then I will observe:

    earthquakes

    faults

    ocean formation

    mountains

    volcanoes

    island chains

    seafloor spreading

    Location Three: Select three events that you predict will be observed. If I explore two continental plates at a transform boundary, then I will observe:

    earthquakes

    faults

    ocean formation

    mountains

    volcanoes

    island chains

    seafloor spreading

    This is all I have for now! Hope this can help! 🙂

  4. Beginning Frog Count

    Simulation 1 (Low)  

    Simulation 2 (High)

    Predators (alligators)

    high: 15000 low: 90000 beginning: 50000

    Pollution :

    high: 35000 low: 50000 beginning: 50000

    Food (mosquitoes) :

    high: 85000 low: 25000 beginning: 50000

    Predators (alligators):  As the predators increase the frog population will be reduced.

    Pollution:  As pollution increased the population decreased

    Food (mosquitoes):  As food increased the population increased

    I know this isn't the whole problem but I still wanted to help out so ya! 🙂 this should help you with the conclusion btw.
