View Resource An Assessment of Assemblage Nestedness in Habitat Fragments

This experiment illustrates how ecological theory can help conserve native species in a fragmented landscape. It is germane to units on biogeography, human impacts on ecosystems, landscape...

View Resource Assessment of the teaching of evolution by natural selection through a hands-on simulation

Given the expense, time and considerable teacher effort required to perform hands-on activities in the classroom, their consequences for student learning need to be evaluated. This study takes one...

View Resource Jon C. Herron Software : FrogPond

FrogPond is interactive evolution simulation software that challenges the user to design experiments that will establish the cause of deformities in a model frog population. This webpage has...

View Resource Jon C. Herron Software: AlleleA1

AlleleA1 is an interactive software simulation of evolution at a single locus in an ideal population of imaginary organisms. The locus of interest has 2 alleles: A1 and A2. The user enters values for...

View Resource Jon C. Herron Software: Bugsville

Bugsville is an interactive simulation software that simulates the genetics of a quantitative character. The user can breed ladybugs to estimate the heritability of spot number, then conduct a...

View Resource Jon C. Herron Software: EvoDots

EvoDots is an interactive program that lets the user explore the mechanism of evolution. The program creates a population of dots. The user is a predator. As the dots run around the screen, the user...

View Resource Jon C. Herron Software: ForensicEA

ForensicEA is an interactive simulation program that lets the user explore the logic of phylogeny reconstruction. The program creates populations of virus particles. The populations evolve by genetic...

View Resource Jon C. Herron Software: PhyloStrat

PhyloStrat is an interactive simulation program that contains a few related activities. Using lizards as a model, PhyloStrat lets the user explore what happens when species are independently...

View Resource Jon C. Herron Software: PopCycle

PopCycle is an interactive simulation software that lets the user explore the power of combining Mendelian genetics with Darwinian selection through various activities. This resource has...

View Resource Leaves as Thermometers

Plant morphology reflects evolutionary solutions to environmental constraints. In this experiment, students use this principle to predict the climate at their site. They collect and measure a set of...
