Science on Youtube

Every year I supervise during a course called “Ecological Methods 2” at the University of Wageningen. As you might expect, this course is the sequel of “Ecological Methods 1.” In the first course, students learn how and when to apply statistical techniques, such as t-tests, ANOVAs and other fancy things. The second course gives the students the opportunity to design an experiment and apply statistics to data they collected themselves. In the end, the students can choose to present their results in a powerpoint or a youtube video. If they go for the latter option, they run the risk of being supervised by me…

The course just finished and the end results are again stunning. Here are videos made by two groups I supervised. One focuses on the effect of light on moths and bats, while the other one looks at the effect of temperature on snail phenotypes and feeding behavior. Enjoy!
