The added information provided at pause points within the animation Coral Bleaching allows for a richer exploration of coral reefs, symbiosis, and other topics in biology.

Understanding Global Change

This interactive module allows students and educators to build models that explain how the Earth system works. The Click & Learn can be used to show how Earth is affected by human activities and natural phenomena.

Ecology, Food Webs, and the Chesapeake Bay

In this talk, scientists Beth McGee, Mary Power, and Brian Silliman discuss the Chesapeake Bay, its food web, and the challenges of conserving and restoring the Bay.

Trophic Cascades in Rivers

In this talk, ecologist Mary Power discusses how herbivorous fish and their predators contribute to the regulation of aquatic ecosystems.

Untangling Salt Marsh Food Webs

In this talk, ecologist Brian Silliman discusses the discovery that salt marshes are controlled by the top-down forces of consumers.

Floods, Droughts, and Food Chains

In this talk, ecologist Mary Power discusses how a river's community of herbivores and predators is affected by changes in river flow.

Africa's Savanna Ecosystems

In this talk, ecologist Robert Pringle discusses how patterns and processes that occur in the savanna, a globally important biome, illustrate core concepts in ecology.

Patterns in Nature

In this talk, mathematical biologist Corina Tarnita discusses how spatial patterns in ecosystems provide insight into how these ecosystems function.

How Species Coexist

In this talk, ecologist Robert Pringle discusses how large herbivores can coexist by partitioning ecological niches by time, space, and diet.

Communities as Ecological Networks

In this talk, biologists Robert Pringle and Corina Tarnita discuss how certain connections in ecosystems can be measured experimentally and investigated using mathematical models.
