Allow students to get the most out of their AP® Biology class with college-level labs designed to challenge the more advanced student. Students will explore key concepts while preparing for higher education. Enough materials provided for eight lab groups.

Study the process of transpiration/transpiration pull and the role it plays in water/nutrient movement in plants. Learn about the role of stomata in relation to the transpiration process using a potometer to examine the rate of transpiration in a bean seedling under a select set of environmental conditions. Examine the location/density of stomata from a leaf surface by preparing a stomatal peel. Design and construct an experiment to show how altering an environmental condition may affect the rate of transpiration. Meets AP® Science Practices 1, 2, 4, 6, and 7, and Big Idea 4. For 32 students in eight lab groups.
