I am posting this query for a colleague at another institution who is not
yet able to access this great source of information. Does anyone out
there have any ideas for outdoor labs for introductory ecology.
Currently, the labs that he mentioned he has previously been doing
Analyzing the galls on goldenrod to determine if the larvae that form
these galls can live on the same plant
Another experiment analyzes the schooling behaviour of zebra-dania fish
and its dependence on food abundance.
A life table (?) using data collected from a cemetary.
Plant competitition using corn, buckwheat, soybeans, and sunflowers.
I realize these are not very descriptive (I am a cell biologist, so I hope
I am writing this in a way that is coherent to ecologists), but he told me
that these labs are "classical." He would like try one or two "newer"
labs. The students that are enrolled in this course are primarily first
Thanks for any help you can provide.
