CES, Week 13: More Community Ecology

As I said in class, I think Community Ecology is the most complicated aspect of ecology. We bogged down a little with the theatre in-reaches and Halloween focus friday. I want to get back to our usual productive pace this week, analyze our moss data, look at leaf litter insect communities and learn some more of the theoretical aspects of community ecology. Get ready to get back to work.

Monday: Graph Moss community Strucutre, analyze data, answer questions

Tuesday: Finish moss questions if neccesary

Wednesday: Keystone Species and Trophic Cascades, If time succession

Thursday: Leaf Litter Community Diviersity, Using a dichotomous key

Friday: Calculating Shannon-Weiner Diversity Index.
