List of Experiments
1. Study pollen germination on a slide.
2. Collect and study soil from different sites and study them for texture and moisture
content.3. Study the pH and water holding capacity of soil. Correlate with the kinds of plants found
in them.
4. Collect water from different Water bodies around you and study them for pH, clarity and
presence of any living organisms.
5. Study the presence of suspended particulate matter in air at the two widely different sites.
6. Study of plant population density by quadrat method.
7. Study of plant population frequency by quadrat method.
8. Study of mitosis in onion root tip (preparation)
Study/observation of the following (Spotting)
1. Study of flowers adapted to pollination by different agencies (wind, insect)
2. Study of pollen germination on a slide.
3. Study and identify stages of gamete development i.e. T.S. testis and T.S. ovary through
permanent slide. (from any mammal)
4. Study meiosis in onion bud cell or grass hopper testis through permanent slide.
5. Study of t.s. of blastula through permanent slide.
6. Study Mendelian inheritance using seeds of different colour/size of any plant.
7. Study prepared pediqree charts of genetic traits such as rolling of tongue, blood groups,
widow’s peak, colour blindness.
8. Exercise on controlled pollination-Emasculation, tagging and bagging.
9. To identify common diseases causing organism like Ascaris, Entamoeba, Plasmodium,
ringworm. Comment on symptoms of diseases that they cause through permanent slides
or specimens.
10. Study plants and animals found in xerophytic condition. Comment upon their adaptation/
11. Study plants and animals found in aquatic conditions. Comment upon their adaptation/
12. Study analogous and homologous organs in various plants and animals.
