If anything, the Corona crisis forces us to be creative about our teaching. For the third year Bachelor Biology course “Vom Molekül zu komplexen Gemeinschaften (BB3.Ö13)“ at FSU Jena, PhD student Jennifer Gabriel and research group leader Nicole van Dam, Molecular Interaction Ecology designed a Corona proof “brown bag” practicum. Students received two paper bags with instructions, white clover plants, caterpillars and experimental materials. With these materials, the students can perform a choice experiment and a field survey on the effect of cyanogenesis on herbivore damage all by themselves. The results will be shared on Moodle and discussed online. We are very curious about the results of this first Corona proof experiment!
