View Resource Dry rivers, vibrant with culture and life: Press release

A press release for an article addressing the benefits of dry river beds. This article also explores how human manipulation of seasonal water sources for land use disrupts the natural cycle necessary...

View Resource Energy Balance and Trophic Status in Fish

In this activity, students work with a dataset to investigate energy balance in animals that have different feeding behaviors (diurnal/nocturnal) and diets (e.g., carnivore/detritivore).

View Resource Environmental Correlates of Leaf Stomata Density

In this Experiment, students make impressions of leaf stomata (using clear nail polish) and test a hypothesis of their choice about how leaf stomata density might vary under different environmental...

View Resource Evolution of Ideas about Causes of Amphibian Deformities

This Issue focuses on a research article by Blaustein and Johnson (2003) that was published in Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment. The article discusses amphibian deformities, which may be...

View Resource Foraging and Flocking Behavior

In this laboratory exercise, the following issues are examined: 1) why neither predators nor prey go extinct when there is a long period of nonrenewal of the prey population 2) the effects of...

View Resource Foraging behavior of insect pollinators in the presence of ambush predators

In this TIEE experiment, students investigate how ambush predators such as the common ambush bug (Phymata americana) or the common crab spider (Misumena vatia) influence the foraging behavior of...

View Resource Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) capturing fish at Seney National Wildlife Refuge

The image shows predation (piscivory) by a Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) in a wetland complex Great Blue Herons typically forage for fish, frogs, and other animals at the edge of a body of water...

View Resource Image of a robber fly (Efferia texana) perched on a rock

I use this image in my junior level ecology class in the unit on physiological ecology to illustrate the evolution of organismal design. I show the image and tell them who the critter is and what...

View Resource Limb and digit malformations in long-toed salamanders (Ambystoma macrodactylum) due to injury and parasite infection.

Long-toed salamanders (Ambystoma macrodactylum) exhibit a wide diversity of limb and digit malformations following injury and infection by a trematode parasite (Ribeiroia ondatrae). A recent study...

View Resource Metabolic ecology: How do body size and temperature affect nutrient cycling rates?

In this TIEE dataset, students answer the question of whether nutrient cycling (excretion) rates of fish in lakes scale with body size and temperature as predicted by The Metabolic Theory of...
