Individual Research Projects:  #1
   Embryonic Nutrition

Reptiles are ideal organisms to study embryonic nutrition, and in particular the importance of calcium to embryonic development, because incubating eggs are easy to handle and manipulate. Students can observe development (growth) of the whole organism and easily understand how molecular and cellular mechanisms impact organismal function.
