Students learn how to test hypotheses related to the local, regional, and continental determinants of local breeding bird species richness, using georeferenced data from standardized point counts and remotely-sensed data, including orthoimages and continental-scale land use and land cover. The exercise is intended as a small-group bounded inquiry. The activity requires a short period of in-class introduction and time for student presentations, but completion of the exercise can be done outside of class.
