BIO260W: ECOLOGY Assignment #1

This assignment has 3 questions, total 30 pts. Submit your work as a word document in Blackboard at the end of class.

This practice helps you learn how to use statistics to interpret data and make a scientific conclusion on an ecological study. The attached graph shows visibility of two macroinvertebrates (Nesameletus and Deleatidium) in a) two different streams with native fish Galaxias and introduced brown trout; and b) three different streams with no fish, native fish and introduced trout. Based on the graph, answer the following the questions [22 pts]. Make sure you type your answers below each sub-question. Question a is 4 pts; Questions b-g is 3 pts.

What are the similarities and differences among native species, introduced species, and invasive species?

What is the likely statistical term to represent each column in the figure? How is it calculated? Just explain the process.

What is the likely statistical term to represent the vertical bar across the top of each column in the figure? What does it mean?

What are the control groups in Figure a and b respectively?

Do you see the differences between day and night in Figure a? If yes, what is it?

Do you see the different impacts of introduced and native fish on macroinvertebrates in Figure a? Which one has more impacts?

What are your conclusions in Figure b?

What is the single knowledge that you comprehend most in Chapter 1 Introduction and Basic statistics? It can be a term, concept, theory, equation, or process. Imagine one of your friends did not get that. Please explain to him/her. Be sure not only state what it is but also explain it using examples, descriptions, illustrations or others [5 pts].

What is the most challenging knowledge that you are still struggling with in these chapters? Be clear about what you don’t understand. It is okay for you to say “None” and you will still get the full points for this question. However, I will expect that you get As in both quiz and exam [3 pts].

What was once seen as normal and healthy in child-rearing is now often popularly seen as restrictive or even punitive – corporal punishment, discipline in general, boundaries, or the impact of postmodern thought on children.  Postmodernism teaches that there is no such thing as objective Truth.  All truth is subjective or relative, a matter of one’s perspective.  Again, we are some years away from solid data that will tell us what the impact of postmodern thought is on children.The phrase biblical nurture of children changes and addresses these issues in a pronounced way.  What follows is a partial list of what may come to mind when considering the biblical nurture of children:one’s views on premarital sexone’s views on abortionchildren born to unwed parentsthe use of the corporal discipline (spanking)“time out” and other forms of disciplinethe power of unconditional love toward a childthe power of regularly saying “I love you” to a childthe difference in parenting roles – fatherhood and motherhoodthe long term impact of a child raised in a healthy marriagethe long term impact of a child raised in an unhealthy marriagethe role of literacy and education in the nurture of a childthe role of a healthy church in the nurture of a childthe role of spiritually healthy grandparents in the nurture of a childThese, along with other issues, come to mind when one considers the biblical nurturing of children.Do a broad, scriptural search for what is involved with nurturing of children.Reflect on how biblical child-raising relates to the descriptive words above.Reflect on how secular culture might disagree with some of these descriptive words, or a biblical understanding of child-raising in general.Prepare to discuss what you believe to be a practical description of the components of biblical nurturance of children as it applies to today’s culture.Support your work with scholarly academic resources, textbooks, or other sources provided.  Quoting or paraphrasing from any source in discussion posts requires APA format by including an in-text citation and listing the reference at the end of the post.[supanova_question]
