Effects of Global Climate Change Acting on Radish Seeds
Research by Yovanni, Arturo, Irving, and Herodes 9th grade Biology Research Project, May 2018
Introduction Human needs such as burning fossil fuels for cars, factories, and electrical are the cause of global climate change. Global climate change biggest impact is the ocean.
Research Question How does global climate change affect radish growth
Hypothesis If global climate change increase then the growth of radishes wold increase
Methods Dependent Variable The radishâ€™s height
Independent Variable A heat lamp
Length of Study 10 days
Control Group 10 radish seeds with soil, and water in a petri dish
Treatment Group 10 radish seeds with soil, and water in a petri dish with a heat lamp in front of it
Collected by measuring the height of the radish on the first day
Collected by measuring the height of the radish on the final day
Results Difference between pre and post for the control group: -11.5 Difference between pre and post data for treatment group: -42.3 The treatment group had a bigger increase than the control group we were trying to prove
Discussion My hypothesis was proven, the radish in the front of the lamp grew rapidly. Global climate change made the radishâ€™s growth rapid. This happened because sunlight is one of the radishes need. Burning fossil fuels would increase global climate change. If global climate change increases, the radish population would also increase. Humans are a major cause to global climate change and they eat radishes. I can pursue on how to prevent global climate change. Humans should continue researching on anthropogenic impacts because it will impact them on some way.
