Patterns of Predation

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated how herbivore populations are regulated in the Serengeti.

Serengeti: Nature’s Living Laboratory

This film explores the foundational research in the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, that uncovered many of the ecological principles that govern how animal populations and communities are regulated

White-Nose Syndrome

This activity explores images of bats with an infectious fungal disease, which serve as phenomena for learning about population dynamics and disease impacts.

The Wolves of Isle Royale

This activity explores images of wolves hunting a moose on Isle Royale, which serve as phenomena for learning about predator-prey population dynamics.

Serengeti Wildebeest Population Regulation

This activity analyzes a published scientific figure from a study in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. In this study, scientists investigated how the eradication of rinderpest disease led to a boom in the wildebeest population.

How Science Works

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

Predator-Prey Relationship Dynamics

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study about Arctic fox populations and their main prey, lemmings.

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.
