Exploring Natural History (ENH) exercise Due Wednesday 30 January 2008 If you are willing to participate in the Exploring Natural History educational research project, please fill out the pre-questionnaire ( http://lessons.ummu.umich.edu/2k/enh_winter08/survey_001_01 ) before doing this homework assignment. The homework is required; filling out the questionnaire is not. In order to be part of this research, you also need to have signed the consent form I passed out in class (let me know if you need one of these). Thank you very much for making our research possible! This is an individual (not group) project; make sure yours is not copied from anyone else’s work. How does community structure differ in terrestrial and aquatic habitats? http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.edu/quaardvark/ In this Exploring Natural History exercise you’ll explore trophic interactions in two very different habitats: grasslands vs. lakes/ponds. You will characterize major differences in food webs, taxonomic makeup, and dominant feeding strategies of these two systems. You will use the data querying tool of the Animal Diversity Web (ADW) to extract information on animals in these two kinds of habitats and then you will compare them. To begin, go to the ADW querying interface ( http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.edu/quaardvark/ ) and register (directions on-site), then log in to begin your query. Go to the “Search and Report” page. On this page you construct your query (which set of animals you’ll analyze) and your report (the data about those animals that you’ll analyze).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
