2. Simpson Diversity Index Lab?
Power Points & Prezis
Ch 53 *I uploaded this as a pdf because the ppt exceeded Weebly's file size limit
Ch 54 Pt 1 (file exceeds Weebly's limits, so it's in 2 parts)
Ch 54 Pt 2
Have you forgotten how to use or interpret Error Bars? Go over this PPt from Unit 1. Also, here is the sheet with "Tips for Experimental Design"
Ecology in a "Nutshell"
Need some help with solving population ecology problems? Try this site or go to youtube and watch videos by MVHSAPBio solving problems, step by step.
Good video lecture on Ch 55- Ecosystems (includes primary productivity and working problems)
Here's the link to some On-line quizzes
