Amphibians are considered
keystone species, since both aquatic and terrestrial factors influence their survival. Students will research the importance of amphibians in a wetland ecosystem. By incorporating class discussion, students will identify the roles amphibians in general, and frogs in particular, play in a wetland ecosystem.
This summer, I participated in an experiment that investigated the impact of various levels of vanadium toxin on tadpoles' metabolic rates. I will explain my project to the class using a Power-Point presentation and discuss the research process with my students.
