For my Core Biology class I had to give a 10 minute presentation on a scientific journal article of my choice. The article had to somehow pertain to what we've learned so far, so seeing as we've been learning all about photosynthesis (down to the last sickeningly microscopic detail-Ugh!) I naturally chose something out of the ICPS journal. I picked the one out of the March 2005 issue which dealt with trapping behavior of Drosera rotundifolia in the wild. The cool thing is that my instructor approved of me diong this article [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]
I decided to take the opportunity to not only present on the interesting article but to also give my class a whole background on CPs, including what CPs are, where they grow, and an overview of several different species (Venus Flytraps, Tropical Pitcher Plants, Butterworts, Bladderworts, and Sundews). I even used Powerpoint with lots of pictures from my website (I also gave my website a shameless plug at the end [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] ). Everyone seemed to dig it and I got a lot of questions at the end, which is always cool.
