APES: Week 9

First, check sharepoint. I uploaded the Biodiveristy calcualtions you all made on the four leaf litter communities. The Shannon’s Diversity Idex (DI) numbers look good, but I would double check the values for Diversity (D). They don’t completely make sense to me. Check the formula (in the notes section of your biodiversity assignments).

When you guys get back from your “awkward assembly”, we will be talking about population growth and logistic growth. Ironic, me thinks. This is the last week of straight ecology. Next quarter we will focus on human populations and human interactions with the environment. I can’t wait to see what you all know and see what you learn.

Monday: Awkward Assembly I

Tuesday: Awkward Assembly II

Wednesday: Population Ecology Lab I: Driving Questions, and set up
