Isopod Lab Report

Satisfactory Essays
1The isopods will gather in the wetter environment instead of the dry environment. 2The isopods will have an affinity to a more basic region than an acidic region. 3The isopods will tend to gather in the environment with a greater amount of light, than an environment with no light. 4The isopods will take a liking to a warmer temperature environment than a cooler temperature environment.By looking at the data you can see that there is a preference among isopods to favor an environment that is cold, wet, basic, and dark. We included the observed data as well as the expected data. Our expected data show what the information would look like if it came from a null universe. To come from a null universe means that the data will have no difference,…show more content…
This information is true because the data have a p-value of 0.055793. This also allows us to support the null hypothesis, and reject the previously stated hypothesis. Shifting next to hypothesis 2, using the chi squared test to find a p-value of 0.00000000605505 to determine that acidity of a region had a significant relationship between the amount of isopods and the amount of acid or base present. This means that we should reject the null hypothesis, and support our original hypothesis. Now, hypothesis 3 had a p-value of 0.001823 showing us that the relationship between the isopod count and the amount of light present is significant. This information disproves the null hypothesis, as well as the previously stated hypothesis because the isopods were in fact drawn to a darker environment. Lastly, hypothesis 4 gives a p-value of 0.0000000153118 expressing that the relationship between temperature and amount of isopods are significant. This allows us to determine that we should reject the null hypothesis as well as the original hypothesis due to the fact that there was a significant amount of isopods in the cold
