Biology 141 Fall 2023

This guide is intended to help students in Biology 141 at Oxford.

Group Assignments

For your Bio 141 first introduction, you'll be asked to describe what we know about cardiovascular fitness as it relates to the independent variables you chose to investigate for your experiment.

To do this you'll need to engage with primary scientific literature, which is where you'll read about the original research that's been done on your topic. We have already identified keywords to use as search terms, now it's time to start searching! Each group will work with a different source - follow the tips below to search your source more efficiently.
