View Resource Chemical Competition in Peatlands

These lab exercises were designed to enhance studentsí understanding of the concept of chemical competition in ecology. They use the moss Sphagnum to illustrate the concept, which shows students that competition occurs between plants. Many of the traditional examples show competition as a physical battle between animals. By using the chemical alteration of the environment by Sphagnum, a teache...

View Resource How do pawpaws affect tree regeneration?

In this study, students investigate whether and how much the native understory shrub pawpaw (Asimina triloba) may affect tree regeneration in a forested habitat. During one lab period in the field, they collect data on the densities of tree seedlings and saplings under varying densities of pawpaws. During a second lab period in a classroom, they test whether tree densities are lower under...

View Resource Energy Storage in Plants: Should Biofuels Be Made from Seeds or Leaves and Stems?

The investigation involves students determining where plants store potential energy (a.k.a., chemical energy). In the investigation, students will grow rapid cycling Brassica rapa plants and observe that the dry weight (mass) increases because of photosynthesis. They will measure the amount of energy stored in seeds and vegetative tissues by using a simple calorimeter. The information collected...
