In this lesson, students plot data and interpret graphs of the metabolic responses of fish to hypoxic conditions. Then, students view and reflect on an interview with fish ecophysiologist Benjamin Negrete, Jr., who collected the data that they graph.


This lesson was designed for a 50-min class period with online synchronous or in-person delivery. Target student level is introductory biology for majors or non-majors. The materials here include an instructor guide (1_IB_Data_on_dead_zones.pdf), an in-class presentation (Google slides; 2_P_Data_on_dead_zones.gslides), a student worksheet (Google slides; 3_SW_Data_on_dead_zones.gslides), two data files (Data Set A, Data Set B), and a link to the interview with Benjamin Negrete, Jr (Interview with fish ecophysiologist Benjamin Negrete, Jr).

Data literacy learning outcome

  • Apply the concepts and terminology from biology to visualize and interpret data from experiments in biology

Content learning outcome

  • Predict the environmental impacts of human activities on changing evolutionary and ecological processes

Social justice learning outcome

  • Apply a social justice lens to promote both equity and innovation in the discipline of biology by reflecting on our own biases in how we perceive biological research and researchers
