Effect of Temperature on the Metabolic Rate of the Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches

Allyson Chaffin, Ann Cooper, Aimee Elmquist, Konnor Culver


Hissing Cockroaches rely on the outside temperature to control their metabolic rate. We tested this by setting up three experiments, each with different temperatures. We graphed the data in a bar graph to show the average of each metabolic rate at each temperature. Our hypothesis was rejected due to the data that we collected. We could have improved the trials by controlling more outside factors.
