meta-analysis
  • what is meta-analysis?
  • is inductive experimentation similar to meta-analysis in that one picks and choose data in order to prove one's hypothesis?
    • induction: start from observation, move to theory
    • deduction: start with theory, move to observation and confirmation

so, what’s meta-analysis?

ecotones
ecotones
  • how do ecotones occur if not created by humans?
  • ecotones can have high diversity, but also contribute to biodiversity loss. how do these ideas work together?
  • are the species found at the edges of ecotones more able than most to survive in variable conditions?
  • can there be vertical ecotones, such as the canopy vs. forest floor?
  • what is an edge effect?
fragmentation
fragmentation
  • if habitat fragmentation forms geographical areas in which populations become geographically isolated, can this lead to allopatric speciation?
  • what are the key differences between habitat patchiness and habitat fragmentation?
general questions
general questions
  • what’s the difference between guild, taxa, and community?
  • is there any benefit to having a community of generalists rather than a community of specialists?
  • how is an ‘environmental gradient’ measured?
  • what does the pricing of "sequencing the genome” mean?
  • where does the energy in trophic levels go?
