End Creek: Spotted Frogs and Aquatic Snails in Wetlands – A Water Quality Investigation

banner

Introduction

This module provides a context for introducing fundamental techniques used in chemical analysis (spectrophotometry, atomic absorbance spectroscopy and ion selective electrodes) along with considerations about sampling and sample preservation. Using an active learning approach, the module explores some fundamental water quality parameters such as the concentration of inorganic cations and anions that may aid in understanding why certain ponds provide a more suitable habitat for the Columbia Spotted frogs and aquatic snails
