Core Experimental Laboratory for Ecology (Bio 44Y)
Biology 44Y Students Core Experimental Laboratory for Ecology (Biology 44Y) brought 250 Stanford students to the Preserve for ecology labs during spring quarter of 2003. As a core course, Bio 44Y is required for all Biology majors.

The students collected and analyzed samples of aquatic systems in Corte Madera and San Francisquito Creeks to explore relationships between abiotic factors and macroinvertebrate diversity and abundance.

A series of Hester-Dendy sampling plates were placed at various sites in the creeks. These devices, composed of multiple masonite plates divided by nylon spacers, provided artificial substrates for macroinvertebrates and were disassembled by students for specimen examination. The students measured the effects of five abiotic factors: dissolved oxygen, temperature, pH, velocity, and conductivity, on the populations of macroinvertebrates that settled on the plates.
