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.

How Animals Use Sound to Communicate

This interactive module explores how different animals — elephants, birds, and bats — have evolved distinct ways of using sound to communicate.

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.

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.

Sampling and Normal Distribution

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

Patterns in Nature

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

Extreme Life of the Sea

In this talk, marine biologist Stephen Palumbi compares threats to biodiversity in the ocean to threats on land.

Vertebrate Circulatorium

This interactive module explores the circulatory systems of major vertebrate groups to gain insights into their evolution.

BCR-ABL: Protein Structure and Function

This tutorial describes the structure and function of the cancer-causing protein BCR-ABL. It also shows how drugs targeting this protein can help treat chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), a cancer of the white blood cells.
