Biology Education and Research in a Changing Planet: by Esther Gnanamalar Sarojini Daniel

By Esther Gnanamalar Sarojini Daniel

This ebook provides chosen convention lawsuits from the twenty fifth Biennial Asian organization for Biology schooling convention. It clarifies the diversities among the constitution of biology schooling for educators and researchers. It solves open difficulties by way of making a bridge among organic learn and its software in schooling and the sustainable improvement of groups. The book’s first subject is Biology schooling in an X, Y, Z international, which gives principles for the way biology will be taught in cutting edge methods. the second one subject, The Endangered Planet – How can Biology schooling support? discusses how people depend upon different species for survival and the way they've got the facility to reason or to avoid extinctions. The 3rd and ultimate subject, study in Biology, encompasses the becoming wealth of organic details caused by medical learn, particularly in universities. Educators can use those findings to reinforce their teaching.

Duit (2009) has recorded some 8,400 studies across all areas of scientific learning.

2. Respiration and photosynthesis Misconceptions Found Among Students (a) Respiration is an inhalation and exhalation process; (b) respiration means the taking in of oxygen and the giving out of carbon dioxide; (c) respiration and breathing processes are different. In respiration, inhalation of oxygen occurs, and breathing is exhalation of carbon dioxide; (d) respiration and breathing processes are same. Respiration means breathing; (e) respiration in plants takes place at night; (f) photosynthesis is the respiration of plants; (g) plants do not use oxygen for respiration; (h) plants release oxygen and use carbon dioxide during photosynthesis; (i) photosynthesis does not take place during the rainy season; (j) plants are meant for purification of the air and for getting more oxygen; (k) fungi prepare their food by using sunlight.

Conclusion We developed a practical science programme that we called ‘Kitchen PCR’. Kitchen PCR is a simple education programme that consists of three steps: extraction of crude DNA from plant materials, PCR and electrophoresis and DNA staining. Horticultural crops (vegetables and fruits) that can be obtained with ease can be used as source materials for the PCR, and the entire Kitchen PCR analysis can be completed in approximately 3 h. The Kitchen PCR is considered to be useful for teaching students about plant genetic diversity at the DNA level and also about molecular similarities between different species.
