Global Ecology Labs?

Dear Plant-Eders,

I'll be teaching a biology course with lab for students who aren't 
science majors next semester, and I'll be emphasizing global-change 
topics. Can anyone suggest some labs relevant to global ecology 
suitable for non-majors? I've already got a couple: measurement of 
NPP in the greenhouse, and development of a species-area curve in a 
weedy lawn (there was an excellent writeup of this in Scientific 
American by Henry Horn).

Suggestions?

Bill Williams
