Introduction to Inquiry Case #2: Forest Biodiversity - UNIT 5
The second Inquiry Case deals with forest biodiversity. In particular, we will focus on the biodiversity that can be found in woodlots on the University of Guelph campus. The question that we are asking involves the development of spaces on campus – and how Natural areas, such as the campus woodlots, are included in these development plans.
In this inquiry case, you will be introduced to several members of the city and the University community as they describe their experience with these natural areas and how the University incorporates them into plans for the future.
In the second week of your Inquiry Case you will learn more from each of the community members you were introduced to last week and expand the number of ecological concepts you are familiar with to help you evaluate the development of the Guelph campus natural areas.
I also wanted to point out a couple of cool snapshots of campus woodlot GigaPans that some of you in BIOL*1070 have already taken. Some evidence of squirrel activity was located in Brown's Woods; and an insect was spotted in the dense foliage of the North Campus Ravine. Great work and keep exploring!!
