Paramecium Aurelia Lab Report

Satisfactory Essays
The experiment exams the biotic potential and environment resistance of two species, Paramecium caudatum and Paramecium aurelia, and compares their growth in the same medium. Paramecium aurelia grows better than Paramecium caudatum. The growth of Paramecium caudatum and Paramecium aurelia in one medium is shows that the growth curve of Paramecium aurelia is J-shaped and Paramecium caudatum has a tendency to the elimination. When they grow in different media, the growth curves are S-shape which indicate the logistic population growth. Biotic potential, and environment resistance will affect the population growth. The source of error is temperature.
