Students can gain experience planning, conducting, and presenting their own scientific investigations while contributing to an important data set investigating plant-animal interactions.
Students may choose to investigate questions such as:
How does flower morphology relate to the type of pollinator a plant attracts?
How does the timing of flowering relate to the type of pollinator a plant attracts?
Do taller plants attract more pollinators?
Do native and invasive plants have different levels of pollinator activity?
Do pollinators prefer native plants or their cultivated counterparts (nativars)? (see our Nativars project)
Do monarch butterflies prefer to lay their eggs on flowering or non-flowering plants? (see our Milkweeds & Monarchs Project)
