Desert Ecology
The Desert appears to be dull and lifeless from the road, but that's not what the classes would find out when they were there. The Field Science class each year takes a trip to Hell's Half Acre lava trail, off to the south of Highway 20. There are lots of tests that can be done in the desert. They used a line transect, to see what kind of plant life could survive in this dry climate. A line transect is a 100 foot sting with dots on it every foot. It is stretched across the landscape. Then one person scopes down from each dot and tells the recorder what he sees. He recordes one of the following: dirt, rock, litter, grass, forb, shrub, or tree. These tests help the students learn what kind of plantlife is in the desert. Each year the classes go on a full day field trip to Craters of the Moon . They visit here to get an idea of how proffessionals do their signs to show important information, do some journal entries, and have some fun touring the caves. For the Skyline Native Plant Ecosytem the students must build a knowledgable sign on a plant or on a certain ecosystem. Back to Main Page

42. Field Study Trips In The ES Department
The desert is as harsh and demanding as any region on earth, and exactsgreater physiologic stress upon its organisms than most other biomes.
The Department of Environmental Studies at Antioch New England
Desert Ecology The Sonoran Desert Region of southern Arizona and northern Mexico has the highest level of species diversity of any desert region in the world. Set against a dynamic backdrop of rugged mountain ranges and wide, sparsely vegetated valleys, we will conduct field work and interview local resource experts to better understand the fragility of the ecosystem. While the emphasis will be desert systems and plant and animal adaptations to them, we will also focus upon the natural resource management issues that surround a rapidly expanding population base in the Southwest, in particular, water rights, grazing, and open space management.

Desert ecology 1 - Negev: The first Minerva-School 'Soil ecology in a desert ecosystem' was conducted with Prof. P. Felix-Henningsen, University of Gießen between March 15 - 23, 2001. 10 Students from the universities of Gießen, Münster and Bremen and 7 students from the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, participated in the field and laboratory course - focused on soil science and soil zoology - plus evening seminars and in the subsequent two-day excursion through S Israel." Desert ecology 2 - Namib: PD Dr. Hartmut Koehler and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Heyser were leading a 3-week excursion (17.03 - 09.04.2001) through Namibia , introducing the students to vegetation, fauna and landuse problematics under different geographical conditions. Visits of different projects aiming at ecological and in parts social-cultural questions and intensive contacts with the University of Namibia and the Polytechnic Windhoek including visits of lectures, barbeques with the students of both universities and discussions with the professors and the vize-chancellor were organised. These activities founded the base for future projects and inspired the cooperation between the University of Bremen and Windhoek.

As many as 18 students will travel with Drs. Horner and Marsh in two vans on a three-week trip to Arizona. We will leave Naperville early on Saturday morning, Nov. 25th, and spend the first three days driving to southeastern Arizona, camping at night. We spend our first two days in Arizona backpacking through Aravaipa Canyon Wilderness where we first observe the Sonoran Desert, the focus of our study. The canyon provides an excellent contrast between the canyon stream and its riparian environment and the adjacent desert on the cnayon walls. This is an excellent area in which to observe wildlife such as desert bighorn sheep as well as saguaro and other cacti. Following Aravaipa Canyon we spend two days in the Tucson area where we visit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and the nearby Santa Catalina Mountains , where we compare two life zone classification systems. We end the first week in Tucson getting resupplied for the next week and staying in a motel! Tucson area attractions include

  • This course is being offered jointly by Fresno City College and CSUF.
    Participants will receive 2 units of credit from Fresno City College, and 2 units of upper division credit from CSUF's Extended Education Office. A stipend will be issued to all Fresno Collaborative for Excellence in the Preparation of Teachers (FCEPT) Fellows that attend and successfully complete the requirements of this course.

This course will focus on the following 3 objectives:
1. Teach the basic knowledge of desert ecology.
2. Develop an inventory of birds, mammals, and reptiles for the GMRS.
3. Develop a research plan, set up data sheets, gather data, and analyze the data using very basic tools. Participants will be encouraged to do real science, design a sampling scheme, understand the limitations imposed by the scheme, gather data, and do appropriate analysis of those data. We also want our data to contribute in a real way to the science being done at GMRS.
The things you do here will be directly applicable to your classroom!

Brad Fiero Biology Faculty Pima Community College Tucson, Arizona sits in the Sonoran Desert, one of the most biologically rich areas in the United States. We are nearly surrounded by mountains ( Setting ), enjoy five seasons ( Climate ), and share our area with many fascinating plants ( Plants ) and animals ( Animals ) that have adapted ( Adapting ) to our desert conditions. Abbreviated lists of print and online resources and places to visit ( Resources ) have been included for you to extend your knowledge beyond the introduction provided here.
