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.

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.

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.

Virus Explorer

This interactive module explores the diversity of viruses based on structure, genome type, host range, transmission mechanism, replication cycles, and vaccine availability.

Sampling and Normal Distribution

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

Dengue Virus

This model shows the structure of dengue virus, which causes dengue fever.

Nodamura Virus

This model shows the structure of Nodamura virus, a type of nodavirus.

Rhinovirus

This model shows the structure of rhinovirus, which causes the common cold.

Virochip DNA Microarray

This tutorial describes how DNA microarrays called Virochips are designed to detect known viruses and discover new ones.
