After participants signed and read the informed consent form, they then were asked to read two study scenarios which involved a new gosling and a “virgin rat”. In the first study scenario, participants were asked to read a short summary about a study which involved a baby goose. There were four versions of this scenario. The participants, however, did not know that there were four different versions of this study. In the first version, participants were asked to read a study involving a newly hatched gosling, whose egg had placed in a box surrounded by the sound of duck quacks. The outcome of this version was not told, so the possible outcomes include the gosling approached to an adult duck or approached to an adult goose after it has hatched. The alternative explanation was not given in this version. In this second version, the participants read a similar study, but the outcome of this study was not told. The alternative explanation was given. In this third version, the outcome was told that the gosling approached to the caged duck one it had hatched, and the alternative explanation was told in this version. In this final version, the similar outcome was told, but the alternative explanation was not …show more content…
not told) and alternate explanation (given v. not given) as our independent variables. There was no significant main effect for outcome, F (1,277) = 0.89, p > 0.05. That is, participants who were told the outcome (M = 4.61, SD = 2.65) were not more surprised than those who were not told the outcome (M = 4.96, SD = 2.58). There were also no main effect for alternative explanation, F (1,277) = 0.015, p > 0.05. That is, participants who were given alternative explanation (M = 4.84, SD = 2.64) were not more surprised than those who were not given alternative explanation (M = 4.83, SD= 2.58). There was no significant interaction of outcome by alternative explanation, F (1, 277) = 0.49, p > 0.05. Thus, there were no significant differences between outcome told and alternative explanation not given (M= 4.51, SD = 2.67), outcome told and alternative explanation given (M= 4.78, SD = 2.65), outcome not told and alternative explanation not given (M = 5.06, SD = 2.51), and outcome not told and alternative explanation given (M = 4.86, SD = 2.66) (See Appendix

Once these sources were discovered the FASFC attempted to reach out to the NVWA in attempt to get more information. On 4th July a follow up investigation was carried out into the Dega-16 treatment to assess whether this was the original source of contamination in the eggs.

    This article caught my eye in the first place because it reminded me of the apple magot fly simpatric speciation that we have studied and understood quite clearly in class. My first response to the whole simpatric and allopatric speciation was clear and it seemed to me that the apple maggot fly speciaton proved this concept. However simpatric speciation with the jays are considerably more unexplanitory, complicated, and as the article indicates, "weird". Katie Langin is the biologist in this article that studies the behaviors of these Island Scrub Jays, which live on Santa Cruz Island. The jays live in seperate places, eat seperate foods, have seperate bills, but are the same species.…

As Greek people showed no greater difficulty making decisions than Independent people, there is no support for the hypothesis. I also hypothesized that there would be increased indecision for people who are not in a romantic relationship. Indecision (M = 2.23, S = 1.57) did not significantly vary between people who are and who are not in a romantic relationship (M = 1.52, S = .50), F(1, 525) = .24, p = .625, Mse = .602. Considering that people in romantic relationships were equally as likely as those not in a romantic relationship to have difficulty making decisions, there is no support for the…
