Title: Disappearing Marine Iguanas: A Case of Population Collapse PDF
Url: http://www.sciencecases.org/iguanas/iguanas.asp
Creator: Toepfer, Conrad F., 1933-

Description: The National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science has been the host to dozens of helpful educational resources, and their series of case studies is one that every science educator should be well acquainted with. One recent addition to their archive comes from Conrad Toepfer of Brescia University in Owensboro, Kentucky. This resource deals with the disappearing marine iguana population in the Galapagos Islands, and it is framed as a conversation between two friends who grow concerned about this trend and decide to explore the subject further. It includes well-phrased questions, complete with tables and charts, and is written in a way that will be compelling to both students and teachers alike.
