Society Learning Goals Articles Sample Learning Objectives
How can populations be distinguished from one another?
  • Census a population and describe it in terms of: distribution, size, density, demographics and variation in characteristics (e.g., color, size, amount of pollen, type of prey, or susceptibility to pathogens).
How do populations change over time?
  • Graphically, verbally, or quantitatively describe a population over time.
  • Identify and test a hypothesis about how a population will respond to perturbation.
  • Create a model explaining how populations become better adapted to their environment.
  • Design an experiment to evaluate the competing hypothesis that a population in a new habitat is under selection or experiencing acclimatization.
