Students learn a simple technique for quantifying the amount of photosynthesis that occurs in a given period of time, using a common water plant (Elodea). They can use this technique to compare the amounts of photosynthesis that occur under conditions of low and high light levels. Before they begin the experiment, however, students must come up with a well-worded hypothesis to be tested. After running the experiment, students pool their data to get a large sample size, determine the measures of
Loss of sea otters, loss of kelp forests
Events that affect one population typically affect other populations. This phenomenon is demonstrated by the otter-urchin-kelp connection.
Paleoecology as a Classroom Tool to Address Global Climate Change
A laboratory activity to illustrate paleoecological techniques by counting pollen on slides representing six different time periods from a site in Idaho. Based on the class data,the students will be asked to interpret how the vegetation has changed at the site as the climate change over time.
Living and non-living things
Living things often rely on non-living things to accomplish daily tasks. Living things have several characteristics that non-living things do not, such as the ability to move, eat, breathe, and reproduce. Living things and non-living things can interact even though they do not have the same characteristics.
Life without legs: How organisms move
We often think of legs when we think of animal movement. Of course, many organisms, from insects to mammals, move by way of legs. However, many organisms create movement in other ways.
Killdeer are birds, and they lay eggs just like all other birds do. Killdeer lay their eggs on the ground, in gravel, on rooftops, or wherever the splotchy pattern of the eggs may be hidden best. The eggshells are hard for added protection.
3.8 Revision questions
Hearing is a familiar and important human sense that is a topic naturally of interest to those who are curious about human biology. This unit will enable you to relate what you read to your own sensory experiences – and indeed many of the questions asked have exactly that function. This unit will be best understood by those with some biological understanding.

Strong shaking in Los Angeles expected from southern San Andreas earthquake
The southernmost San Andreas fault has a high probability of rupturing in a large (greater than magnitude 7.5) earthquake sometime during the next few decades. New simulations show that the chain of sedimentary basins between San Bernardino and downtown Los Angeles form an effective waveguide that channels Love waves along the southern edge of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains. Earthquake scenarios with northward rupture, in which the guided wave is efficiently excited, produce unusua
RHESSI Observes the Flare over AR9906 - rotate view with times
Zoom in (with rotation) to solar active region AR9906 on April 21, 2002 with SOHO-EIT,TRACE and RHESSI data. RHESSI observes x-rays from this flare. The red contours represent the 12-25 keV photon energy range and the blue contours represent 50-100 keV.

How to Find Orion
How to find the constellation Orion. Distinguished by Orion's Belt, with Rigel (a blue star) and Betelguese (a red star).Orion is one of the most easily recognizable constellations due to the three stars that form the belt of Orion. Look for Orion almost due East in the fall. The video is only one minute in duration so it may have to be stopped to assist the students in locating these stars.
