Exploring Biomass Pyramids

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

Winogradsky Column: Microbial Ecology in a Bottle

This interactive module consists of a virtual Winogradsky column, which can be used to explore the diversity of microbes, microbial metabolic strategies, and geochemical gradients found in sediments.

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.

Sampling and Normal Distribution

This interactive simulation allows students to graph and analyze sample distributions taken from a normally distributed population.

Lizard Evolution Virtual Lab

This interactive, modular lab explores the evolution of the anole lizards in the Caribbean through data collection and analysis.

EarthViewer

This interactive module allows students to explore the science of Earth's deep history, from its formation 4.5 billion years ago to modern times.

Stickleback Evolution Virtual Lab

This interactive, modular lab explores how stickleback fish and fossil specimens are used to study evolutionary processes, with an emphasis on data collection and analysis.

Symbiotic Bioluminescence

This tutorial describes the symbiosis between the Hawaiian bobtail squid and bioluminescent bacteria.

Bacterial Quorum Sensing

This tutorial describes how bacteria communicate by a process known as quorum sensing, as shown through a series of experiments involving genetically engineered bioluminescent bacteria.
