Population Explosion (Yeast Lab) (Day #3 of 3)

Unit 7: 7) Ecology ("Population Interactions")
Lesson 3 of 16

Objective: Students will plan and conduct a laboratory investigation that tests the effect of an abiotic or biotic factor on the size of a population of yeast cells.

Big Idea: Populations are able to produce populations of infinite size, but the environment (and its resources) is finite.
