View Resource Performing a population viability analysis from data students collect on a local plant

During two lab periods, students collect demographic data on perennial plants and then use these data in a matrix model to perform population viability analyses. During the first lab, students tag...

View Resource Processes that Regulate Patterns of Species and Genetic Diversity

During a single lab period, students simulate colonization and drift in artificial communities to understand how these processes affect distributions of biodiversity in small versus large communities...

View Resource Roots as foragers

In this project, students can experience plants as responsive rather than passive organisms. Roots forage through heterogeneous media and proliferate in portions of the soil that have abundant...

View Resource Species Interaction, Advantageous or Not: the Fig-Wasp relationship
