Students set up a variety of simple detritus-based model systems to estimate energy flow and carbon cycling within an ecosystem. Students set up their ecosystem with a known detritivore, a known decomposer, or a combination of both detritivore and decomposer. The teacher provides students with data from two control systems to help interpret changes in the experimental systems.Preview Download

Featured PASCO Equipment
The Wireless CO₂ Sensor measures Carbon Dioxide gas levels and wirelessly streams data to your computers, tablets, and smartphones.
This economical interface makes PASPORT sensors cross-platform compatible.
The PASPORT Carbon Dioxide Gas Sensor measures carbon dioxide concentrations in ppm and can be used to explore photosynthesis, respiration, fermentation, and more.
A single polycarbonate chamber designed to integrate sensors for controlled-environment experiments such as fermentation and plant or cricket respiration.
Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
