...., predation risk, competitive interactions). We present a hands-on activity for undergraduates using just a deck of cards, bingo chips, and dice to introduce ecological concepts of foraging theory, predator–prey interactions, and energy trade-offs. Specifically, this activity will focus on optimal foraging...

...Wade B. Worthen Several common dragonfly species perch at different heights. Using dowels as perches and simple chi-square tests, this pattern of resource partitioning can be described quickly and easily. Additional experiments can examine the effect of interspecific competition on perch selection...
