Example text

From experience, you know that a dog’s wagging tail or a cat’s purring shows contentment, while a growl or a hiss indicates dislike or signals a warning. The barking of a watchdog tells its owner that someone or something is approaching, and even a cricket’s chirping rate can be used to tell temperature. TWO WAYS OF KNOWING All animals are able to respond to stimuli—things that cause a response (action)—and the response may indicate either active or passive knowledge. Active knowledge is knowledge that is learned.

To avoid air bubbles, slowly lower the coverslip at an angle on the drop so that air bubbles do not form on the slide. If the sample is too thick, you may need to add a small drop of water under the coverslip. Place the prepared slide on the stage of a compound microscope. MOVING SOLUTIONS This microtechnique is useful for introducing a stain or another solution to microscopic life-forms or cells under a coverslip in a wet mount. Cut or tear a triangular piece of paper towel. Use an eyedropper to place a drop of stain or solution on one side of the coverslip, so that it just mixes with the existing fluid of the wet mount.

Use a compound microscope at medium (100X) magnification to view the barb and barbule structure. The barbules have tiny hooks that allow them to grab and hold barbs together. Choose a large flight feather and hold the quill (shaft) toward you. Examine it with a magnifying glass. Notice a small hole that allowed the entrance of blood vessels, which nourished the feather during life. Obtain a large sewing needle and gently push it up into the shaft. What do you observe? Is what you find a benefit to the bird?
