I spent about 15 to 20 minutes reviewing the content and I have to say that this is a useful and entertaining guide for understanding population dynamics. The presentation and design of the interactive article are simple yet effective and are appealing to an inter-disciplinary audience.
As a student it seems to me that Dr. David Lesley effectivley communicates with a student audience with interactive content which makes the concept more easy to understand. Were I to require a source to help me complete a project, I would not hesitate to utilize this page as a good first-hand source.
Another plus of the article is it's ease of use; being reminiscent of a power-point presentation. Another interesting aspect of the article is being able to interact with and manipulate the results of the graphs to better understand the dynamics of the locust model.
