Carolina EcoKits®: Invasive Species

Item # 187004 Exclusive This product is exclusive to Carolina Biological Supply.

Grades 9-12. Students investigate invasive species by performing 2 engaging activities. In the first, they explore how the addition of a second, more efficient, predator affects an existing predator's population.

Kit accommodates a class of up to 32 students working in groups of 4.

With the data, students then calculate population density and percent cover for each species. Kit accommodates a class of up to 32 students working in groups of 4.
