That simply means Division C participants can be tested on their knowledge of suture patterns for the four molluscs identified.

Re: Forensics C

right, but it takes a crapload of energy to jumpstart the electrons! matches are definitely not enough (I've tried) and candles aren't much hotter so... Right, if your were given candles at anything other than maybe an ill-advised invitational test, I would be shocked. I did go to one invite at whi...

Re: Forensics C

What "loop" are you talking about? o_O It's the little wire thing that you use to hold the powder solutions to conduct flame tests. oh wow whaaat? we just use wooden splints hahahhahahahaa... could that be affecting our results? Yes I recommend getting a nichrome loop for the flame tests, and more ...

Re: Forensics C

the worst ones are like potassium chloride, because the color is a faint purple that 1) blends in with the bunsen burner blue and 2) it's so faint that I can never see it. Sometimes boric acid is pretty bad too because the green shows up not regularly. I think you may need to be a little more patie...

Re: Fossils B/C

Thanks Jazzy - i have one more question. Would you guys suggest i get sheet protectors? I think that would be very beneficial as i could flip through the pages so much faster without stuff tearing out - not to mention my binder would look soooo proo... I think your train of thought answered that qu...

Re: Fossils B/C

I'm having trouble concretely being able to identify/distinguish between platystrophia and mucrospirifer, yes i know, pretty newb. I have a hunch, do mucrospirifer have a 180 degree hinge line (ya, thats probably terrible wording but i mean the relatively straight line you see at the top of the val...

Re: Fossils B/C

1. I gather the binder is more valuable than the study guide? 2. If we wanted to use a past team's binder, would it be recommended that we remake it somehow? I think that would be helpful so that we know the layout and how it's set up. 3. At the coaches clinic, a coach said that we should stay away...

Re: Fossils B/C

This question has been bugging me for a while: what is the best way to distinguish written out the difference between the appearance of exogyra and gryphaea? i had in my notes that one of them is asymmetrical, but im not sure if its accurate or enough to satisfy the question. Gryphaea looks like it...

Re: Fossils B/C

Really, field guides are great and all, but nothing beats a well-made binder. Very true, a well made binder should have all the information you find in every field guide you use. However, going into a competition without a guide, to me, is foolish. It may not help, but it definitely won't hurt. And...

Re: Fossils B/C

My personal preference is the Audobon, but smithsonian is also good, I just don't think it had as many of the genera. Smithsonian is recommended for a reason, not that you aren't allowed to have an opinion ;) The audubon is a great study resource, but using it during a timed test would be murder. A...
