Practice module included in Teaching Issues and Experiments in Ecology (TIEE) Volume 10
Have long-term temperatures changed throughout Ohio? How will these temperature changes impact plant and animal phenology, ecological interactions, and, as a result, species diversity?
This teaching material allows students to:
- produce and analyze graphs of temperature change using large, long-term data sets (synthesis, Analysis)
- Develop methods for calculating species-specific shifts in flowering time with temperature change (Synthesis)
- Describe the ecological consequences of shifting plant and animal phenology (Comprehension)
- Evaluate data "cherry-picking" as a climate change skeptical tactic (Evaluation)
There is open-ended inquiry, guided inquiry, cooperative learning, critical thinking.
