Problems.

One of the classes asked about problems that we have faced so far in our experiments. As many of you know from class there are often problems that come up unexpectedly when doing an experiment. Last night we went to check on some of our clay models that were placed in a picnic area and we found that the state park had cut down dead trees including two that we had placed models on. The picture above shows a wood pile that probably has one of our models burrows in it somewhere. I don't think we are getting that one back. Now we will just change our experiment a bit to work with 48 models instead of 50. Solving unexpected problems is part of working as a scientist.

  1. Do you think having less clay models will affect the expriment ?

  2. It will affect the experiment a little bit but we will build replacement models and get them out in the field quickly. Unfortunately we lost 3 more models because the state park workers cut down the trees.

    does that affect the experiment really bad? are you guys going to move the fake lizards to avoid losing them.

    Oh geez.
    That sucks to hear.
    But didn't you say you were probably going to make extra lizards in case of any problematic adversities that would show up?
    Not to sound mean but weren't you suppose to have some extra just in case?
    I mean anything can happen in an experiment like this.

  12. They should be ashamed of them selves. could this effect change the results of this experiment?

  13. Dont you think since you are doing this for science that the park district should under stand what your doing and not interfear?

  14. mr.reedy this problem is something that the state shouldnt have brought up upon you guys since yous are doin research tehy shouldnt be messing with the land will you are there

  15. What other problems does the state cause when they cut down the trees?

  16. can lizards still hide between the cut down trees? There can be lizards hiding into the dead trees.

    can this affect the results of the experiment you were expecting?
    is this one of the problems you consider having during the experiment ? or it just happen unexpected?
    what could be the outcomes from this research?

  18. I am sorry to hear about that. :(
    why don't you make another two clay models instead of changing your experiment to work with 48?

  19. Awww, i can relate to this since me and danny are doing the anole behavior project, and of course we have been having trouble preparing the data since most of it got mixed up :(

  20. awww. You should have posted a big note on the tree saying "Scientists are at work and don't even think about chopping down my trees." :O Can you just make 2 more clay models to make the experiment 50 again?

    How many times do you have to fix these problems? Is it a constant thing?

    can cutting down the trees affect the lizards?
    would the results change since the trees were cut down?
