The Educational Effectiveness of BioBlitz

December 18, 2014

Studies have shown that citizen science and events such as BioBlitz can education those who volunteer as citizen scientists. Proving that this was also the case for the MHC BioBlitz at NYBG will support the idea that BioBlitz is a worthwhile educational tool for MHC. http://macaulay.cuny.edu/eportfolios/seminar3posters/files/gravity_forms/1-f14ea90e75361cb91bd42582a860ee01/2014/12/PM-Education.pdf Annalise Armenta, Dane Fearon, Yeji Chun, Saif Choudhury Kelly […]

Comparing Bird Diversity between The New York Botanical Garden and Central Park

December 18, 2014

Central Park and the New York Botanical Garden are home to over 200 different species of birds, providing them with food and natural habitat to flourish in. Bird diversity is important to us because birds aid in seed dispersal and enhance our city’s aesthetic value. The birds also provide ecosystem services. http://macaulay.cuny.edu/eportfolios/seminar3posters/files/gravity_forms/1-f14ea90e75361cb91bd42582a860ee01/2014/12/PM-Birds.pdf Stephin Jose, David […]

Bee Diversity in New York City from 2003 to 2014

December 18, 2014

Global bee population has declined significantly in recent years. While Colony Collapse Disorder has been cited as a potential cause, there is no conclusive solution to this problem. The goal of this group was to examine bee species diversity in NYC, through BioBlitz data from four years, from three locations: 2003 (Central Park), 2005 (Bronx […]

The Effects of Bioblitz on College Students’ Perception of Invasive Species as a Threat to Biodiversity

December 12, 2014

“We hypothesized that during Bioblitz, students would have been educated on the types of invasive species and how they could harm native species and thus, this would lead to more concern and support for the protection of native species.” http://macaulay.cuny.edu/eportfolios/seminar3posters/files/gravity_forms/1-f14ea90e75361cb91bd42582a860ee01/2014/12/InvasiveSpecies_Bioblitz.pdf Tahsin Alam, Sarah Kabariti, Tasnia Mahmud, Keerteshwrya Mishra Tara Cornelisse, Jennifer Corby Brooklyn College BioBlitz, […]
