Dr. Coghlan gave an introduction to stream ecology to University of Maine students in May, 2012. We taped the talk and adapted for use in the classroom.
This curriculum supports a scientist-teacher-student partnership investigating investigating the effects of culverts on stream ecology.
Students watch two brief videos and discuss the idea of habitat connectivity.
This lesson introduces the importance of having a connected habitat. The main focus is on fish species, however, it will be important to point out to students that:
Students watch a brief video and interpret that video into a drawing to explain, “How does a stream work?”
Students connect environmental conditions in the stream to habitat preferences of different macroinvertebrates.
Macroinvertebrates vary in their stream environment requirements. Some tolerate wide differences in chemistry; some do not. Some like streams with fast flowing water and a cobble-y streambed, some like slow moving water and a mucky streambed.
