Bug Study

Wednesday, September 14, 2016 - By: Mr. Dave McCarthy

Brentwood AP Biology students are again taking part in a Canada-wide bug survey through the University of Guelph. Insects caught in the trap, recently set up outside of the biology lab by Kate L, are collected over a two week period and then sent to the university labs for analysis using DNA bar-coding techniques. The diversity and abundance of invertebrates is a key indicator of ecosystem health and the results tell us a lot about how our environment is faring across the country.
