Adaptation and Diversity on Sheffield Island

Written for an exploration of shoreline ecosystems on Sheffield Island, this gives ecology or marine biology buffs a hands-on experience. Using GPS or visual triangulation techniques, they lay transect lines on a high and a low energy beach. They also set up a beach seine and record the flora and fauna. Though this lesson is written for a specific marine aquarium and Sheffield Island field trip, the material can be adapted to your local habitat.
