The Data Discovery faculty mentoring network will focus on six (6) TIEE modules. These modules use ecological data sets collected at the population, community, and landscape scales, to help prepare students for the challenges of working with larger data sets.
List of focal TIEE modules (in order of scale):
- Global Temperature Change in the 21st Century (Daniel Taub & GIllian Graham, Southwestern University, 2011)
- Changes in Lake Ice: Ecosystem Response to Global Change (Robert Bohanan, UW Madison, Marianne Krasney, Cornell, Adam Weiman, Cornell, 2005)
- Investigating the footprint of climate change on phenology and ecological interactions in north-central North America (Kellen Calinger, The Ohio State University, 2014)
- Exploring the population dynamics of wintering bald eagles through long-term data (Julie Beckstead, Gonzaga, Alexandra Lagasse & Scott Robinson, BLM Coeur d’Alene Field Office ID, 2011)
- Demography from physical cemeteries, “virtual cemeteries,” and census data (Janet Lanza, University of Arkansas at Little Rock, 2012)
- The insect predation game: evolving prey defenses and predator responses (W. Wyatt Hoback and Tamara Smith, University of Nebraska at Kearney, 2006)
