O projeto ‘Guias da Conservação: de turista a naturalista’ surgiu com o propósito de estimular o pensamento conservacionista através da sensibilização do público, utilizando-se da biodiversidade contida na Mata Atlântica na forma de guias de campo. Este trabalho teve como objetivo avaliar a recepção dos guias de campo desenvolvidos pelo projeto. O público alvo foi o público participante do evento [...]

Harnessing open science practices to teach ecology and evolution using interactive tutorials

Jory Griffith, Elizabeth Houghton, Margaret A. Slein, et al.

Published: 2023-08-30
Subjects: Education, Life Sciences

Open science skills are increasingly important for a career in ecology and evolution as efforts to make data and analyses publicly available and transparent continue to become more commonplace. However, open science skills are not typically taught in biology undergraduate programs. In learning core concepts in ecology and evolutionary biology (EEB), students must also gain skills in open [...]

Imagining Kant’s Theory of Scientific Knowledge: Philosophy and Education in Microbiology

Fernando Baquero

Published: 2022-12-10
Subjects: Education, Life Sciences

In the field of observational and experimental natural sciences (as is the case for microbiology), recent decades have been overinfluenced by overwhelming technological advances, and the space of abstraction has been frequently disdained. However, the predictable future of biological sciences should necessarily recover the synthetic dimension of “natural philosophy”. We should understand the [...]

Towards a new stable state: Equitably assessing trainee writing productivity post-COVID-19

Freya Rowland, Kyra Prats, Yara Alshwairikh, et al.

Subjects: Disability and Equity in Education, Education, Gender Equity in Education, Higher Education

The current academic ‘ecosystem’ prioritizes publications and has remained in this stable state despite increasing calls for change. Although writing is a strong determinant of academic success, certain groups may experience publishing barriers that may be amplified by disruptive events like the COVID-19 pandemic. Here we surveyed 342 graduate students and postdoctoral scholars to assess (1) how [...]

With turtles and tortoises being one of the most threatened taxa on the planet, dire conservation action is needed. As a global hotspot for turtles — with over 85 species and subspecies — the U.S. can play a major role in curbing turtle extinction. It has already done so for its six species of sea turtles, which experienced dramatic declines over the 19th and 20th centuries due to human [...]

Until recently, it was assumed that insects lack immune memory since they do not have vertebrate-like specialized memory cells. Therefore, their most well studied evolutionary response against pathogens was increased basal immunity. However, growing evidence suggests that many insects also exhibit a form of immune memory (immune priming), where prior exposure to a low dose of infection confers [...]

Mixed-method analysis of college student perceptions towards R suggest lecture and self-paced tutorial introductions produce similar outcomes

Gordon Custer, Linda TA van Diepen, Janel Seeley

Quantitative literacy is necessary to keep pace with the exponentially increasing magnitude of biological data and the complexity of statistical tools. However, statistical programming can cause anxiety in new learners and educators alike. In order to produce graduates that are well-prepared for quantitative research, overcoming the initial hurdles associated with statistical programming is a [...]
