Diversity of ageing across the tree of life

I stumbled across this paper when looking for survivorship information on different species and it has be a great teaching resource. Mostly I use the subplots of Figure 1 (partially reproduced here) which has a whole bunch of graphs of relative mortality and fertility as a function of age for a wide range of taxa.

When you go to the Nature site for this paper be sure to check out the "related audio" which has a nice discussion with the authors about the paper.

A Survivorship Recitation Activity

This is an activity that is based on the data available from the "Survivorship in the Natural World" module. Joshua Adelman, who was a post-doc in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh at the time, was the lead developer of this activity.

Instructions for Using Radiant for Data Visualization

As part of the extinction module, students can use the R Shiny app Radiant to explore and visualize the data.  Radiant also has a unique and useful feature for instructors: the ability to automatically generate a report of student workflow.  This allows faculty to follow students' exploration of the data and decision-making processes.  The attached handout (Copy of Student Handout 5) contains the updated instructions for running Radiant on the QUBESHub website and generating a workflow report.

Making beautiful plots

Trying to customize plots in R?  This page from the Quick R site provides a great deal of information on customizing plot options, in a much more visual (and less terrifying) format than "?par"

Get R (and RStudio)

Just getting started as an R user?  You can first try running R on QUBES Hub here, without installing anything.  Eventually, though you will want to install it on your own computer by downloading it here.  RStudio provides a friendlier interface for using R, and can be downloaded here.  Rstudio requires R to be installed, so start by downloading R.

"The capacity for growth is a measure of the success of a population of a species. Because there are so many interactions between individuals and the environment, measuring how well populations grow is often complex. Population biologists frequently use mathematical growth models to help them study real populations. Population models might seem like all theory and math, but they help us understand real ecological systems in simpler terms. They are used for testing theories, making...

Wendy Jo Levenson onto Data Nuggets

A collection of data sets on various topics, some population-related, such as “Ecology,” “Agriculture,” and “Tree-rings.” The data sets can be viewed and compared to one another. There are no lessons related to the data, but several of the data sets overlap region and time for comparisons of population growth.

Describes the logistic population growth model and applies it to the scenario of population growth and overabundance in white-tailed deer. Activity also contains links to more advanced activities such how to model the harvesting rate of a population with logistic growth.
