...., 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...

...Andrea M.-K. Bierema; David W. Rudge One of the key aspects of natural selection is competition, yet the concept of competition is not necessarily emphasized in explanations of natural selection. Because of this, we developed an activity for our class that focuses on competition and provides an...

..., they should move an additional three spaces ahead. Some Action Cards are competition cards, which are relevant if two or more players are on the same space. These players should refer to their Plant Information Cards for direction on how to proceed. For example, if the player representing Chinese...

...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...
