A Field View of Soil - Digging Around
The purpose of this resource is to understand that variations in landscape can affect soil properties. Students investigate variations in the soils around their school to discover that soil properties like moisture and temperature exhibit considerable variability across a single landscape. They also identify factors such as slope, shade, plants, compaction, which affect the appearance of soils and their ability to hold moisture.
Microscope Imaging Station
This site shows what blood is, what happens when the immune system goes awry, what are stem cells are, and more. See videos exploring cell structure and function, cell development and motility, plankton, plants, and protozoa. Learn how the sea urchin helps us understand genes, reproduction, and cancer.
Uranium Human Health Fact Sheet
This two-page PDF fact sheet briefly describes uranium; what it is, where it comes from, and how it is used. Information is also provided about the human health risks of uranium, including the different manners in which it can be ingested and what happens when it enters the body.
Mating preference in the commercially imported bumblebee species Bombus terrestris in Britain (Hymen
Commercial trade of bumblebees in Europe results in different subspecies of Bombus terrestris being shipped into regions where they are not native. Although previous studies have shown that these subspecies will interbreed, none have assessed mating preference of the different populations. This study examines the mating preferences between two geographically isolated populations of B. terrestris which have unnaturally been brought together through the commercial trade in bumblebees. Under contr
Sister Chromatid Differentiation and Exchange in Chinese Hamster Ovary Cells in Culture
This laboratory exercise is designed to illustrate the semi-conservative mode of DNA duplication through the expression of sister chromatid differentiation (SCD), the single-stranded nature of the eukaryotic chromosome organization, and the mutagenic effects of certain chemical or physical agents through induced sister chromatid exchange (SCE). Through individual work and/or a group project, students will learn the basic cell culturing and cytogenetic techniques for chromosome studies, especiall
The Botanical Garden - A Tool to Teach systematics, Physiology and a Lot More
The UBC Botanical Garden will be used to demonstrate the wide range of possibilities for teaching using materials that are available in situ or freshly collected. An exercise in general systematics will use materials from the British Columbia Native Garden; the uses of plants as chemical sources will ...
The Cypress Swamp
A laboratory exercise involving observing various plants and animals encountered and measuring physical factors that affect them as an approach to ecosystem analysis.
The Immune System: Red Cell Agglutination in Non-Humans
This exercise presents the concepts of immunology from biochemical, evolutionary, and adaptive standpoints. While all organisms have developed some mechanism of defense against external agents, vertebrates have the most complex immune responses capable of exquisite specificity and long duration. This affords a distinct advantage to species with a relatively long life span and low fecundity. This exercise explores the relationship between immunologic stimulation of the host with foreign antigens
The Power of Genetics: Using Classical and Molecular Genetics to Study "Real" Developmental Phenomen
The goal of this laboratory exercise is to provide a laboratory experience for undergraduates, in which they apply fundamental genetic principles to the study of a complex developmental process, specifically, root cell shape determination in the simple plant Arabidopsis thaliana. In this exercise, students identify putative root cell shape mutants, analyze an F2 segregating population, and finally use molecular techniques to determine where a specific mutation in located within the genome. This
The Study of Development Using Red Algae
This exercise can be used to demonstrate developmental processes at the cellular level, environmental control of photosynthesis, and cell enlargement by using red algae, which is well-suited for these types of experiments.
The Use of Lectins Agglutinins to Study Cell Surfaces
Using lectins, proteins which combine specifically with carbohydrate molecules or groups, this activity will introduce the students to the many important roles that the cell membrane serves in biological processes.
Water and Solute Movement Through Red Blood Cell Membranes
This resource is a detailed laboratory exercise suitable for undergraduate laboratory courses in biochemistry, physiology and cell biology. It includes detailed background information and student outlines, instructors notes, and suggested anaylses.

Flight of the Bumble Bee by Rimsky-Korsakov
This light but manic piece brings to mind the buzzing of a bee or swarm of bees. The music for the Nasonex bee in a 2006 TV commercial. Look for a killer version of this piece by Croation pianist Maksim Mrvica on his 2003 CD "The Piano Player." This is the World Premiere Performance of Maksim August 24, 2006 on the piano.
Otis MFA Graphic Design Lecture 2011: Sibylle Hagmann
Award-winning font designer. After earning a BFA from the Basel School of Design in 1989, Sibylle Hagmann worked for the design firms Eclat and Zintzmeyer & Lux in Zurich, Switzerland. She pursued her interests in typography and type design from a different perspective by completing in 1996 a MFA at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California. Since then she has worked as a designer and art director for institutional publications and taught typography at Art Center College of D
Advanced techniques of design in support to medical science: Application to implantological treatmen
At the present time the importance of the image of people plays a key role. Therefore many people who leave these standards wish to change their aesthetic face one, in occasions to look for characteristics that respond to the modern beauty, and in others, to try to solve a medical problem. In the work that is exposed here, the use of the present technological tools of design appears, like support to the scientific development that it makes possible an effectively learn more express and to the st
