5.4 The meaning of meaning
How does the computer's peculiar binary world of digital entities differ from our analogue world of colour, sound, taste and touch? This unit explores the way in which information, in the form of text, still and moving images, and sound can cross the boundary from the analogue universe into a digital world.

Species Diversity, Island Biogeography, and the Design of Nature Reserves
This field and laboratory investigation is an open-ended exercise designed to test predictions from island biogeography theory using various-sized fragments of leaf litter arthropod communities as "island" systems. Litter islands are constructed in a deciduous forest and students collect samples of leaf litter and extract arthropods using the Berlese Funnel technique. After arthropods are collected, students learn identification techniques, compute diversity indices, construct dominance-diversit
Using Human Blood, Saliva, and Dental Caries in the Biology Teaching Laboratory
Laboratory exercises using saliva, urine, and blood were developed because they met specific, desirable learning objectives. Moreover, because they use the student's own body, they had the advantage of high student interest. Since the method of transmission of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) was uncovered, questions have arisen about the safety of using blood and other body fluids in teaching. Disinfection and safety procedures that minimize the risk of transmitting diseases in the laboratory
The Intertidal Environment of the Rocky Coast
This resource is a detailed manual of protocols and instructional information for carrying out an undergraduate laboratory exercise in ecology and marine biology, including student outlines, instructors notes, and suggested questions for laboratory reports.
Multi-species Interactions: Indirect Effects
Ecologists often study the dynamics of single-species populations or the interactions between two species, but real ecological systems comprise multiple species. Unique effects arising from the complexity of having more than two species present are termed indirect effects: effects of one species on a second species that arise only in the presence of one or more other species. In this laboratory, we will observe guppies foraging on Daphnia in the presence and absence of aquatic plants to test for

Do Materials Get Tired? Fatigue
This video explains how the strength of a material can be measured in the laboratory and used to design structures, like bikes, airplanes, and even chairs. We see a controlled lab experiment that applies precise force to a paper clip until it breaks.
Remote Sensing Interactive: Land Cover Map / Image Comparison
The Land Cover Map / Image Comparison is one of a number of interactive tools being developed to illustrate basic remote-sensing . Here, the user is able to examine a portion of the Chiricahua Mountains in southern Arizona by viewing two sets of images from TM and Modis sensors, and selecting areas within them for closer examination at three magnification levels.
In this hands-on OLogy activity, kids learn about matter by building their own models of carbon out of pipe cleaners, wire, and clay. The activity begins with a kid-friendly introduction to matter, elements, and atoms. The illustrated, step-by-step directions show kids how to use the information about carbon on the Periodic Table to create a mobile that shows the element's basic structure. A PDF version of the Periodic Table, along with a kid-friendly overview of how to read it, is also included
