This Click & Learn traces the flow of energy from the Sun all the way to cells within organisms. The embedded questions and calculations guide students’ understanding of how energy is distributed through a variety of ecosystems.
This activity explores the concepts and research presented in the short film From Ants to Grizzlies: A General Rule for Saving Biodiversity, which explores the species-area relationship and its applications for conservation.
In this Click & Learn, students explore mathematical models that describe how populations change over time and apply these models to the invasive lionfish population in the Bahamas. They also use data from other species to learn how density-dependent factors limit population size.
