Created for upper level high school biology or ecology classes by graduate students from Colorado State University, What Limits the Reproductive Success of Migratory Birds? is an interactive, online module that features Hubbard Brook avian research to investigate basic ecological principles relating to reproductive success of migratory songbirds. Text, images, video and graphs give students information on ecological concepts and provide descriptions of warbler biology, research methods and study results.
Teachers may select from three assignments designed to reinforce and further explore these concepts: the first contains standard short answer questions, another asks students to graph and analyze data from Hubbard Brook to explore factors influencing reproductive success, and the third allows students to use a model to simulate the effects of various factors on reproductive success.
