What causes an area to have poor air quality? Use this model to explore the connections between pollution sources, weather, geography, and air quality.
This simple model simulates seining a stream for animal life. Sixteen species of;invertebrates wash down the stream. When the seine is open they may get caught and separated into buckets.
This model illustrates resource-limited population growth. Populations have a per-capita growth rate and carrying capacity. Two populations are compared on three graphs: N vs time, dN/dt vs N, and dN/Ndt vs N.
This model simulates the classic example of natural selection on color patterns in peppered moths (Biston betularia). When air pollution is low, lichens cover the trees and the light moths are well camouflaged. When air pollution is high, the trees become dark and the light moths stand out.
Knowing how many individuals are in a population can be critical. How can you tell how many there are when there are too many to count? This model simulates a pond of tadpoles. The population size can be estimated in three ways: direct sampling, sampling with removal, and mark/recapture.
In 1962, Rachel Carson published 'Silent Spring', which drew attention to how the use of pesticides was indirectly decimating bird populations by causing thinning of egg-shells.
