Abstract

Climate change is a prevalent problem in the world today. There are many effects of climate change, one of which is the creation of acidic rain that causes the deterioration of man-made structures and the environment. These effects of acid rain were tested on crickets to see if they caused any changes to their chirp rate, which affects their breeding rate since male crickets chirp to attract and mate with females. To test this, terrariums were built to house the crickets for experimentation. The terrarium was constructed so that a holed, plastic pipe ran along the top of the container with a water pump attached to one end pumping distilled vinegar through the tube. The methods of the experiment did not produce any quantifiable results due to multiple reasons, the main most likely being the age of the crickets.
