Students' Perceptions of the Concept of Life.
Brumby, Margaret N.
Science Education, v66 n4 p613-22 Jul 1982
College students (N=52) were given unfamiliar or novel problems (written and interview responses) to determine how they characterize living things, criteria they use to distinguish between living/dead/nonliving, and to determine if their idea of life included the interrelationship between organisms and biosphere. Results and implications are discussed. (Author/SK)
