environment (habitat) of collection


Powerpoint Slides:

  • Your final presentation for this course will include these slides that cover this information.
  • Refer to the Powerpoint “Style Guide” to earn a better grade!

Slide 1: Create a slide with an appropriate title with your name and the date of submission on it.

  • This title should be descriptive! For example, “Wolbachia Project” tells an audience nothing about the information in the slides.

Slide 2: Include only the following:

  • a description of Wolbachia biology and its prevalence in insect and arthropod species
  • the overall impact of Wolbachia infection on an insect population

Slide 3: Include only the following:

  • how Wolbachia infection in insect populations may directly or indirectly affect human health (at least one filarial nematode and one viral disease mentioned)

Slide 4: Include only the following:

  • why GSU Armstrong students as a collective are participating in this project
  • why your individual experience with the project is important

Slide 5: Look at page 32 of your lab manual, and present your completed flowchart of the experimental design in a tabular or flow-chart format.

Slide 6: Include only the following:

  • date of collection
  • time of collection
  • location of collection
  • environment (habitat) of collection
  • method of collection
  • a photo you took during collection (this can be a photo of your insect, the habitat, a selfie of you collecting, etc)

Slide 7: You need to provide references for your work in the proper format using the skills you learned in Exercise 1 (review pages 12-13 of your lab manual if you need guidance on how to write your citations).

  • The PowerPoint Style Guide provides directions for how to do this, and these directions are also listed below.
  • Create a numbered list of references on final slide.
  • You need to revisit the slides you’ve just created (slides 2-6 above) to add small superscript numbers next to information that you found from sources, such as your lab manual or the introductory video you watched for Prelab for this exercise.
  • Each piece of information that you gathered from a source for your slides should be referenced in this way.
  • The small superscript number on the slides next to the information should correspond to the numbered source on slide 7 from which you found that piece of information.
  • Example:
    • If you wrote something you learned from your lab manual on slide 2 about Wolbachia infection in mosquitoes, please a small superscript “1” by that information on slide 2.
    • On slide 7, your lab manual should be numbered “1” in your list of resources.
