  • PlantEdDL - A group of bluehead wrasse (Thalassoma bifasciatum) shoal above a reef at St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.
    Shoaling is a common anti predator behavior for reef fishes such as the bluehead wrasse Many reef fish species form large very dense shoals as juveniles A recent study found that there is safety in numbers at small spatial scales solitary bluehead wrasse had higher mortality rates than conspecifics in groups The same study also found that the inverse is true for wrasse morality when measured at larger spatial scales This photograph originally appeared on the cover of Ecology 88 12 in December of 2007 Format jpeg Primary or BEN resource type Photograph Discipline Specific Core Concepts Ecological Core Concepts Populations Density and distribution Ecological Core Concepts Populations Ecological Core Concepts Individuals Behavior Ecological Core Concepts Individuals Life science discipline subject Ecology Keywords Thalassoma bifasciatum bluehead wrasse shoal aggregate social behavior fish aquatic marine coral reef anti predator Virgin Islands St Croix Audience Undergraduate upper division 15 16 Undergraduate lower division 13 14 Intended End User Role Teacher Language English Educational Language English Pedagogical Use Description This photograph could be used to illustrate fish coral reef species social behavior anti predator behavior or fish shoaling Primary Author Controlled Name J Wilson White Primary Author Affiliation University of California Davis Primary

    in biodiversity topics 4 development of process skills that are important for conservation and 5 changes in worldview and environmental orientation Using this framework three NCEP modules were tested in five diverse undergraduate courses and institutions with various class sizes We predicted significant learning gains in content knowledge and changes in ecological attitudes and worldviews We found significant learning gains in content knowledge as well as increases in student confidence in content knowledge and greater interest in the field of biodiversity conservation Module use did not change the overall environmental worldview of students in the study population We also detected statistically significant declines in overall student confidence in process skills important to conservation Analyses revealed no significant differences in any study variables based upon demographics such as school gender ethnicity class standing reason for enrollment or academic major Results demonstrate the value of the NCEP modules in enhancing biodiversity education and the value of assessing student ability and perceptions of ability as measures of the effectiveness of educational programs Format pdf Primary or BEN resource type Teaching strategies guidelines Discipline Specific Core Concepts Ecological Core Concepts Populations Ecological Core Concepts Human impacts Ecological Core Concepts Applied ecology Life science discipline
