plants, and are considered a process of evolution as they have evolved in order to adapt to the change in the environment. In this investigation we will be observing the results of both types of plants under harsh conditions. It is preferable that the Polyploidy plant will survive harsher conditions as they have actually developed due to the change in their biosphere therefore making it more likely that they will survive unfavourable conditions. In this experiment we will be taking a look at which plant type is most likely to survive harsher conditions. • What is a polyploidy plant? most flowers today have evolved into polyploidy plants today. According to research, they form from tow diploid cells that have ancestry links there allowing…show more content…
• Tabulated Result of the Pros and Cons of Polyploidy Plants Positives Negatives Gene redundancy Adapted characteristics may be harmful to humans Self-fertilisation Carry different weaknesses so not much knowledge would be known by them Greater long term adaptability Would be limited in terms of…show more content…
2) Will the diploid cells as well as polyploidy cells denature at a rapid pace? 3) Will the type of soil affect the results? 4) Will changing the position of the plants in the sunlight alter the results? 5) Would the plants grow better in a small or larger container? 6) Which type of polyploidy plants will work best with this type of investigation? 7) Should both plants contain the same number of chromosomes?  Hypothesis Polyploidy plants doe require large amounts of water in order to grow to their full potential as opposed to non-polyploidy plants.  Aim To determine whether polyploidy plants require more water in order to grow to their full potential.  Variables Independent variable – The amount of water Dependant variable – The growth of the plant  Controlled Variables 1) The plants will be similar to each other in chromosome numbers. 2) They will be from similar organisms group. 3) The plant will receive the same amount of water designated for that week each day. 4) The time at which the plant is watered will be
