assignments and field station directions

 

Due to switching the pollination and forensics classes, there may have been a bit of a mix-up in class assignments.  Here's the run-down:

Pollination:  No assignment due (only data sheets)

Biotic Integrity:   Some of you provided 2 paragraphs on a threatened or endangered fish species in Kansas (as indicated in lecture and on the field protocol); some of you provided answers to the questions in "Discussion and Significance".  As long as you provided one of these, I will consider this acceptable in terms of the assignment for this class.  Also, please thank Josh and Kevin by posting something on Ninnescah Life (pictures are always appreciated!).  I will send the URL to Josh.  

Forensics:  Most of you provided answers to the questions under discussion and significance.  If you did not, I will accept these until Saturday at 5pm.  You need only answer the questions with regards to habitat that you sampled.

     Upland Prairie Transect: Comment on the following:

      Do you think that results for the creek bed transect will be very similar to those of the prairie?  If not, why might they differ? 

      If we examined succession instead of diversity, how might succession differ between habitats?

      Discuss the limitations of the study. For example, did the sampling method represent all of the insects?

      Lowland Prairie Transect: Comment on the following:

      Do you think that results for the prairie transect will be very similar to those of the creek bed?  If not, why might they differ?

The directions for the Field Station are at: http://webs.wichita.edu/?u=bioscience&p=/fieldStation/fieldMap.  See you there on Tuesday at 7:45!
