This is an adaption of the QUBES resource to a non-major's ecology course.  The original module was split into two sections and the adaptation of this module is discussed in the teaching notes. At the end of the module students should understand the topics of energy transformation, food chains, food webs, trophic cascades, predator/prey dynamics, age structure, and nutrient cycling.

This resource was developed originally as a case study learning activity to accompany the HHMI Video Some Animals Are More Equal than Others: Keystone Species and Trophic Cascades.
