Berlese/Tullgren funnel

Post by nickykinz » 02 Apr 2019, 15:12

Our Biol teacher is thinking about doing this next year for the student lead prac. While individually they don’t look too hard to set up, we will be talking about large numbers. He is thinking that each group can collect leaf litter from different areas (the modification) so will need 3 per group for 2 classes so approx. 36. I’m not sure how logistically possible 36 of these set up in the labs will be. And the cost, even if we make them ourselves, we will need light sources and some kind of mesh to put in them. Have any of you done anything like this before?
Any advice or ideas greatly appreciated.

Hi, I did a quick google and this came up, looks like just tripods with beakers and plastic filter funnels, maybe use microscope lamps if you still have them?? All equipment we already have? ... _257805435
