3/18/2015 Very good job with your zebrafish entry. The only thing I would say is that if you have individual measurements, it would be better to provide the mean ± standard deviation and state how many embryos you measured rather than "on average...". It is too bad that your fish died as you collected good data and you could have made some nice comparison graphs. Science with living animals is hard! LS

3/6/2015 Goat ears! Oh dear. It is possible you had yeast growing on your plate, but maybe not that one. ;-) It would be better if you linked your samples back to which two samples you chose from your table. Were they from a tet or non-tet plate? Was the colony morphology expected? LS


Vert lab - very good. Tree squirrels very rarely eat birds, and usually only baby birds if they can't find any other foods, so you may want to note that in your lab report. Also, don't forget the protists!

Invert lab - Lovely! You might want to use one or both of the photos in your lab report, but make sure to label which invert it is. LS

2/13/2015 Great job! Clever to find the Arboretum podcast. For your lab report, you should find the Genus for the 4 plants you were able to identify, and estimate the height of the whole plant rather than your specimen. It would be helpful to label the photos in some way, to know which was which plant. LS

2/6/2015 Excellent. Next time you could indicate what the photos are of - if it is hard to label them, then write a figure legend underneath. The Gram stain was beautiful! Thank you for including citations. LS

1/27/2015 Great job! You included everything you needed to. LS

1/27/2015 Your descriptions were very good, you just needed to include drawings of the protists. LS
