How I Use It
Students use this website as a starting point for a research paper on wolf and moose predator / prey interactions on Isle Royale. They perform a simulation ( a program produced by SimBio) and write up a scientific paper. I include this website as a resource for more information about the wolves and moose.
My Take
The ARKive catalog has articles on a number of species, including their scientific name, habitat, ecology, threatened conditions, and links to more information. I'd like to see more/better information on taxonomy and cladistic trees.
