Thinking like an Ecologist
Carlson, Jenn
Science Teacher, v75 n1 p51-57 Jan 2008
This article presents a lesson in which students examine current field research on global change. In particular, students investigate the effect of carbon dioxide and tropospheric ozone on ecosystems by applying their knowledge of scientific inquiry and photosynthesis. The goal of the activity is for students to think like ecologists and draw connections between the data and their everyday energy choices. (Contains 8 figures and 2 online resources.)
