Connecting Concepts: Plant Biology/Water Relations 3: Plant Adaptations for Water Stress

Students help a restoration ecologist choose plants that will grow at Alamitos Creek, California, based on plant adaptations for dry conditions and the concept of water potential. Students will: 1) complete a simulated applied research project in which they review concepts pertaining to plant adaptations for dry conditions, construct a checklist of criteria for plants adapted to grow at Alamitos Creek, and select 3 plants that meet criteria for growth at Alamitos Creek using inventories of real data for 9 plants.

Excelente material, no obstante, es necesario profundizar algunos conceptos para permitir un mayor desarrollo pedagógico de los contenidos. Es necesario traducir al español. 

Technical Remarks:

Muy livianos los contenidos técnicos, es necesario, con la misma metodología, incorporar mayores contenidos técnicos y profundizar aquellos conforme a los objetivos de aprendizajes deseados.
