  • PlantEdDL - An Assessment of Assemblage Nestedness in Habitat Fragments
    the possible relationships between fragmentation and nestedness and identification of common breeding bird species in regional forest fragments Between the first two labs students practice bird identification read about the general effects of fragmentation on bird populations and communities and consider whether bird assemblages might be nested by specific attributes of habitat fragments During subsequent labs and out of class time student groups survey breeding birds in forest fragments perform a statistical analysis and assess the relative merits of the alternative hypotheses Student groups complete the experiment by presenting scientific research posters Format pdf Primary or BEN resource type Laboratory exercise Discipline Specific Core Concepts Ecological Core Concepts Populations Genetic and phenotypic diversity Ecological Core Concepts Populations Density and distribution Ecological Core Concepts Populations Ecological Core Concepts Human impacts Biodiversity loss Ecological Core Concepts Communities Species composition abundance and diversity Ecological Core Concepts Communities Disturbance assembly and succession Life science discipline subject Population Biology Ecology Conservation Biology Biodiversity Keywords alien species assemblages biodiversity correlation versus causation data analysis assessment background knowledge Audience Undergraduate lower division 13 14 Intended End User Role Teacher Language English Educational Language English Primary Author Controlled Name Roarke Donnelly Primary Author Affiliation Oglethorpe University Atlanta GA
