View Resource Year to year variability in survivorship for the summer annual Erucastrum gallicum

This figure shows survivorship curves for spring cohorts of the summer annual plant Erucastrum gallicum (Brassicaceae) growing in the Jamesville Quarry, Syracuse, NY. It shows how survivorship varies markedly from year to year, due mainly to variability in rainfall. Survivorship approximated a Deevey Type I function in 1976, a year with abundant rain. Survivorship followed a Type III pattern in...

View Resource Using Citizen Science Data from iNaturalist to Explore Bumblebee Diversity and Distribution

The rise of biodiversity-related citizen science projects gives us the opportunity to inspire all students to become citizen scientists, no matter what their professional path. Here, I share an in-class exercise that introduces undergraduates to biodiversity and citizen science using the open-source platform iNaturalist. I developed the exercise as part of a semester-long module on bumblebee...

View Resource Quantifying the impact of a brood parasite on crows

This class was designed for an introductory ecology course. Students are introduced to Microsoft Excel PivotTables by amending an existing PivotTable, then create their own PivotTables to explore the main data sets. These data sets provide information on the breeding success of carrion crows parasitized by great spotted cuckoos in Spain. Students summarise the large data sets, produce bar charts,...
