An Invitation to Modeling: Resource-Limited Population Growth Activity

Most students have seen an exponential model for population growth and know that it predicts unlimited growth. Better models, such as the logistic growth model, should incorporate assumptions to account for limitation of resources. In this activity, participants collect data from a physical simulation of resource-limited growth, prepare a variety of graphs to visualize the data, construct a verbal model based on their observations and the graphs, and (for those who want to go this far) construct a symbolic model from the verbal model.

An Investigation of Island Biogeography using Data from Online Natural History Collections

This module guides students through tests of two fundamental rules of island biogeography using specimens collected from the Alexander Archipelago in Southeastern Alaska. The module was designed for use in the Ecology and Evolution (BIOL 203) course at the University of New Mexico.
