Silva, Heslley M.; Peñaloza, Gonzalo; Tomasco, Ivanna H.; Carvalho, Graça S. – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Despite scientific evidence suggesting close phylogenetic relationship between chimpanzees and humans, the inclusion of these apes in the genus "Homo" is controversial. Several tools have been used to analyse this issue such as fossils, molecular clock and genome. This work intended to understand the biology teachers' conceptions about…

Wommer, Fernanda Gabriela Bitencourt; Loreto, Everton Miguel Silva; Sepel, Lenira Maria Nunes; Loreto, Elgion Lucio Silva – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
The history of science is an important component to acquire for achieving scientific literacy. In this study, a collaborative activity was applied in which the students were presented with the historical context in which Robert Hooke lived and developed the first register of the microscopic world. Furthermore, the students explored the environment…

da Silva, Paloma Rodrigues; de Andrade, Mariana A. Bologna Soares; de Andrade Caldeira, Ana Maria – Journal of Biological Education, 2015
Biology is a science that involves study of the diversity of living organisms. This diversity has always generated questions and has motivated cultures to seek plausible explanations for the differences and similarities between types of organisms. In biology teaching, these issues are addressed by adopting an evolutionary approach. The aim of this…

Mugnai, Riccardo; Barbosa, Julio Vianna; Baptista, Darcilio Fernandes – Journal of Biological Education, 2012
Teaching collections are of great importance for science instruction at any level. There are several problems linked to the handling and curatorial management of this kind of collection. Among these is the relatively short life-span of specimens, due to the damage from continuous handling by students. Often the specimens used to replenish the…
