By Suzanne DeVries-Zimmerman, Hope College Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences Project Goals The Hope College REACH (Research Experience Across Cultures) program is a 6-week summer research program ...
Riparian Plant Lab part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching the Methods of Geoscience:Activities
In this field exercise for an introductory environmental science course, students investigate plant cover and type in a riparian area using transects. The final assignment is a lab report that includes a summary data table, a graph of cover types along their transect and an analysis of riparian health.
Investigative Case - "Malama Keone'o'io" part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Investigative Case Based Learning:Examples
Students will learn techniques for conducting a local environmental assessment in an ecologically sensitive area. Identification of native plants and methodologies for sampling will be taught in the classroom and then reinforced in the field. The module also includes a community awareness and conservation aspect.
Investigative Case - "European Starlings and Woopeckers" part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Investigative Case Based Learning:Examples
An exploration into Niche Competition and Population Ecology
The Wingra Marsh: A Purple Population Problem part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Investigative Case Based Learning:Examples
Students author a presentation to the Grounds Management Committee of their school giving their recommendation for the control of the invasive species purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria) on campus.
Investigative Case: The Nancy Creek Challenge part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Investigative Case Based Learning:Examples
Students examine a case study of fish kill in Nancy Creek and identify the environmental conditions that favor life in a fresh water ecosystem.
Investigative Case - "Rio Grande Wildlife Refuge" part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Investigative Case Based Learning:Examples
As professional ecologists working for the fish and wildlife service, students must develop a plan to manage a new wildlife refuge along the Rio Grande River. The fish and wildlife service plans to connect forest islands along the river, which will become not only a new refuge but also a "wildlife corridor."
Investigative Case - Living in an Alkaline Environment part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Investigative Case Based Learning:Examples
Living in an Alkaline Environment is a three-part interactive activity that explores the ecology and diversity of life in alkaline environments.
Human Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Determination part of Teaching Genomics at Small Colleges:Genomics Instructional Units Minicollection
In this laboratory exercise, students determine which allelic form of a particular single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) they have (one located in an intron, and not associated with any known phenotype). Students ...
Comparison of Protein Sequences: BLAST searching and Phylogenetic Tree Construction part of Teaching Genomics at Small Colleges:Genomics Instructional Units Minicollection
This laboratory exercise is a guided discovery of computational methods for comparing protein sequences. Students perform BLAST searches of reported CYP1A sequences and construct phylogenetic trees using CYP1A amino acid sequences from various vertebrate species, especially those with multiple CYP1A paralogs.
