View Resource Move It or Lose It: Species Respond to a Warming World

In this activity students work in teams to examine a primary literature paper, understand statistical output, and interpret graphs. The paper provides crucial evidence on species shifts in latitude and elevation in response to climate change. Not only will students learn how to read and think critically, through discussion with their peers, they will also gain confidence in the ability to...

View Resource The nose knows: How tri-trophic interactions and natural history shape bird foraging behavior

This dataset is designed for first-year biology students, but can be altered for upper-level students. After receiving sufficient background on the biology of King penguins, students must make hypotheses regarding the penguins sensitivity to an odor known to be associated with the primary productivity of the ocean. Students are given multiple data sets and need to analyze the data using a...

View Resource Visualizing a Disease Outbreak Using ESRI Story Maps

At the end of this activity, students will demonstrate their ability to understand basic principles of disease transmission, convey real epidemiological data as visual stories, and develop a plan to handle a “real” outbreak. Instructors may evaluate students’ knowledge and comprehension of the basic principles of disease transmission by analyzing how students’ initial and final hypotheses changed...

View Resource Quantifying the impact of a brood parasite on crows

This class was designed for an introductory ecology course. Students are introduced to Microsoft Excel PivotTables by amending an existing PivotTable, then create their own PivotTables to explore the main data sets. These data sets provide information on the breeding success of carrion crows parasitized by great spotted cuckoos in Spain. Students summarise the large data sets, produce bar charts,...
