Lionfish Invasion: Density-Dependent Population Dynamics

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.

Exploring Biomass Pyramids

This interactive module allows students to collect and analyze data from a virtual river to construct biomass and energy pyramids.

How Science Works

This interactive module allows students and educators to document, annotate, and reflect upon scientific research processes.

Population Dynamics

This interactive simulation allows students to explore two classic mathematical models that describe how populations change over time: the exponential and logistic growth models.

WildCam Darién

This interactive module connects to an online citizen science platform for identifying animals in photos collected by trail cameras in Darién and Soberanía National Parks in Panama.

Exploring Trophic Cascades

This interactive module explores examples of how changes in one species can affect species at other trophic levels and ultimately the entire ecosystem.

Survey Methods

This interactive module explores methods used to survey large animal populations, and what they have revealed about the current state of the African elephant population.

WildCam Lab

This interactive module allows students to investigate their own ecological questions using data collected by trail cameras in Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique.
