"We do not construct the world from our experiences; we are aware of the world in our experiences. Science is a language for talking not about experience but about the world."
You should be able to differentiate the description of lichen coverage in Creating the Context from your explanation of the relationship between percent lichen coverage and the density and/or diversity of tardigrades in this guided research. Is there a causes and effect relationship between percent lichen coverage and the density and/or diversity of tardigrades living on the lichens? How can you convince others of this relationship, based on evidence you have developed and on logical argument. Think critically about evidence and decide what evidence should be used in this argument, while accounting for anything unusal. The more lines of evidence you have to support your conclusion, the stronger your case is. This experiment was set up to test a hypothesis.
H0: There is no measurable relationship between the percent lichen coverage and the density and/or diversity of tardigrades living on the lichens.
H1: There is a measurable relationship between the percent lichen coverage and the density and/or diversity of tardigrades living on the lichens.
What can you say about these two alternative explainations of what goes on in the natural world? Did you test them? What else can you include to support your explaination.
As you have thought about your information, you may have come up with some conclusions related to the lichen/tardigrade research question in this tutorial. Your conclusion should be added to this list of conclusion papers. Add your conclusion and your comments below.
