This lab felt very “slow” because there was not a lot of action going on. The pill bugs would either walk around in circles or stay put. However, it was both fun and annoying when my group tried to put the pill bugs in the chamber and take them out. We had to put a lot of effort to get the pill bugs on to the paint brushes because they would scurry around and it would take a while to find them. Also, it was cool to see the pill bugs use their defense mechanism (it only happened once) by going into a hard circular shape when being prodded at by a paintbrush. This lab had a lot of experimental areas. The amount of water or basic or acidic solution to the paper may have affected results. For the first part of the lab, outside factors could have contributed to the results, such as lighting, vibration, or chemical residue. Also, as soon as we put all the pill bugs in the chamber, we started the lab. If we had given five minutes or so for the pill bugs to be attributed to the environment, t...

Ap Bio Experiment Lab Report

The Effects of Environmental Stimuli on Animal Behavior AP Biology Emily Olsen April 26, 2012 I. Introduction: The purpose of this lab is to test the effect certain stimuli has on the behavior of a terrestrial isopod. These bugs are more commonly known as pill bugs and potato bugs. The objective of this experiment is to determine which kinds of habitats potato bugs favor. Potato bugs have an innate behavior called taxis which will cause the animal to move away from a stimulus that is unwanted and towards a stimulus that is favored. Different stimuli whic...

 Animal Behavior: Pill Bugs Eva Dod Cornell AP Biology 1st September 14th 2014 Part I. Pill Bug Behavior (2 points) Observation Date: September 9th 2014 Today, I went into my yard to look for Pill Bugs. I first checked the compost heap, but found only flies. Next, I went to the stepping-stones in our rose garden. Under each of the stones, I discovered about ten pill bugs, which scurried around frantically as soon as light pervaded their dark environment. The ground was moist, and there were a few worms, which the pill bugs took little ...

The Food Consumption Preferences of Pill Bugs ABSTRACT Two ethological experiments were performed on the species _armadillidiidae vulgare_, more commonly known as the pill bug or roly-poly. The behavioral response to inverting pill bugs onto their dorsal side was observed. This studied the pill bugs social interaction and behavior. Then it was tested whether or not the pill bugs would eat food that was not part of their natural habitat by placing Pop-tart® crumbs into their environment. INTRODUCTION Ethology is the study of animals ...
