The Effects of Cattle Grazing on Vegetation in a Shortgrass Prairie Ecosystem
Grazing by large herbivores has profound effects on both the structure and function of shortgrass prairie ecosystems. In this exercise a grazed section of prairie on a working cattle ranch is compared to a less grazed section on an adjacent wildlife refuge. The Daubenmire canopy-coverage method is used ...
The Line-Intercept Method: A Tool for Introductory Plant Ecology Laboratories
This ABLE major workshop took participants to Bogg's Rock, a granitic flatrock community that is in the early serial stages of succession. The line-intercept method of sampling was employed to allow the rapid characterization of the community structure. After species composition was defined, a simple statistical procedure was used to test one of several factors that might be controlling species distribution.
Using Bromelain in Pineapple Juice to Investigate Enzyme Function
This investigation introduces students to the structure and function of the proteolytic enzyme, bromelain, which is present in large quantities in the fruit, leaves, and stems of pineapple. In this lab exercise, students study the rate at which bromelain catalyzes the hydrolysis of gelatin (substrate) at different temperatures and pHs. Strips of developed black and white photographic film are placed in freshly squeezed pineapple juice under different experimental conditions. The time it takes fo

Conservation and biodiversity
Dr. Richard Field research interests lie in conservation, biodiversity and the forces that structure ecological communities. In this podcast, Dr Field from the School of Geography compares and contrasts his experiences as a researcher in national parks in Honduras and Indonesia, and the different types of ecological communities he has studied, and goes on to introduce the emerging field of conservation bio-geography.
International Classification of Function, Disability and Health
This package was originally designed for undergraduates in Medicine at the University of Nottingham. It will also be useful to students in nursing, allied health professions and pharmacy. Practitioners in these fields, who are new to the ICF, will also find it a useful introduction. It describes the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), a classification system published by the World Health Organisation to describe health status. This system is widely used in
Uniform convergence and pointwise convergence
The aim of this material is to introduce the student to two notions of convergence for sequences of real-valued functions. The notion of pointwise convergence is relatively straightforward, but the notion of uniform convergence is more subtle. Uniform convergence is explained in terms of closed function balls and the new notion of sets absorbing sequences. The differences between the two types of convergence are illustrated with several examples. Some standard facts are also discussed: a unifo

The plasma sphere is a region of ionospheric plasma which co-rotates with the Earth, carried by the magnetic field lines. The plasma pause marks the outer boundary of this region. This colder plasma is more easily moved by the electric fields created by strong solar storms. In the Halloween 2003 event, these fields convected some of the cold plasma out to the magnetopause (grey, semi-transparent surface) and reduced the size of the cold plasma region near the Earth. For this visualization, the 3
