View Resource Biodiversity Responses across a Gradient of Human Influence

To investigate how species, communities, and habitats change over the rural-urban (or pristine to human-dominated) gradient students conduct a series of biological inventories, field measurements, taxonomic keying out, natural history classifications, landscape classifications, statistical analyses, and a literature review. Each laboratory session will be geared towards one or several of these...

View Resource Pathways to Scientific Teaching, Chapter 6b of 7: Unraveling complexity: building an understanding of Everglades restoration

Understanding the complexity of ecosystems at all scales, macro to micro, is challenging for students (and scientists!) to unravel. Sklar and colleagues present the engaging problem of the restoration of the Florida Everglades [attached], including history, biology, hydrology, modeling, and regulatory morasses. Students need to learn how to derive and interconnect biological concepts from the...

View Resource Pathways to Scientific Teaching, Chapter 5b of 7: Learning through peer assessment

Ecological succession is driven by disturbance, both natural and human-induced, and change occurs at multiple scales, both temporal and spatial. Understanding the mechanisms involved in succession requires the integration of many ideas, some of which may contradict studentsí belief that succession is only a unidirectional and linear model. The notion of ecosystems as static, or as eventuall...

View Resource To Plant, or Not to Plant? Regulating Invasive Plant Species in the Mid-Atlantic States: A Social-Ecological System Case Study

As invasive plant species spread across landscapes, costs of their economic and environmental impacts have sparked interest in regulating their sale and transport. Laws now prohibit the sale and movement of some species. State and local governments are drafting regulations that will affect horticulture, plant nurseries, and options for landscape design. Awareness of invasive plant species is...
