Different types of animal behavior in the first half of the lab, the behavior of pillbugs was studied, in particular with regard to kinesis, which is a random movement as a result of a stimulus first, the pillbugs’ responses to moisture were examined. Animal behavior – ap lab 11 (kinesis/taxis) in pill bugs design three experiments to determine a preferred environment for pill bugs in a resource gradient .
Abstract this experiment was used to test animal behavior we tested the response pill bugs had to different environments in three different experiments: moist v/ dry, unscented v/ scented, and acidic v/ neutral. Animal behavior 74-6613 74-6614 • the difference between kinesis and taxis when threatened, pill bugs can curl up into a tight ball for protection, while . Introduction: the purpose of this lab was to understand behavioral adaptations of an animal in different environments to determine their ideal environment pill bugs are often referred to as insects, but they are technically crustaceans.
By recording the number of pill bugs on each side every so often, we were able to observe and determine which environment the pill bugs preferred introduction behavior can be defined as the way an animal or person responds to a certain situation. Animal behavior lab abstract: in order to determine how test how terrestrial isopods (pill bugs) respond to different environments and to see which ones they preferred, we tested different factors such as moisture, color, and scent.
