Davidson, Timothy M.; Sokoloski, Chasmin; Smith, Celia M. – Science Activities: Projects and Curriculum Ideas in STEM Classrooms, 2020
Herbivores are important to ecosystems because they transfer energy stored in plant matter to other organisms. However, when herbivores occur in high abundances, they can become pests and harm the plants that form the basis of food webs. Mangroves are saltwater tolerant trees found along most tropical and subtropical shorelines. Because mangroves…
