Trail-Following in Snails: A Behavior and Statistical Laboratory Exercise
It is well documented that many snails follow the trails of other snails. A variety of simple experiments can be designed around trail following that teach experimental design, observation and data collection, and statistical analysis of results. The easily obtained, intertidal littorine snails can be used in areas with access to the ocean, while land snails or slugs can be substituted in inland areas. The statistical emphasis can be modified to make this exercise suitable to a variety of levels

6.3 Heat research Andrew Plummer (c. 1698–1756), the chemistry professor at Edinburgh, suffered a stroke in 1755, and the Town Council appointed Cullen as his conjoint professor without consulting the stricken Plummer. Black, who had covered for Plummer until Cullen arrived, was appointed to Cullen's position at the University of Glasgow. This move also marked a change in the direction of Black's research. He now began to investigate the nature of heat, a central topic in eighteenth-century chemistry.
