Connecting Concepts: Ecology/Population Dynamics

Logo for Connecting Concepts: Ecology/Population Dynamics
This simulation/tutorial consists of three topics. In topic 1, students conduct a study of a zebra mussel population in a fictitious lake and present their findings during a virtual teleconference. Students will: 1) review qualitative descriptions of growth curves for the exponential and logistic models, selecting one to test at the lake; 2) collect and plot data, and determine which of the models the data fits; 3) answer questions about populations at other localities by calculating rmax, t,...

An outstanding interactive exercise for students learn about population dynamics. Well written and requires students to figure out the answers. If incorrect answer, takes them back to the basic material. Very well done.

Technical Remarks:

Requires Shockwave
