[PDF] Article from The American Biology Teacher, Vol. 72, No. 3, pages 173176. ISSN 0002-7685, electronic ISSN 19384211. ©2010 by National Association of Biology Teachers. This is an article about providing urban students with a field site for ecological studies, using ants and their mounds. The authors describe how soil collected from ant mounds can be used to investigate how biotic factors (ants) can affect abiotic factors in the soil that can, in turn, influence plant growth.
