Description: After completing this case-based activity, students will be able to: (1) demonstrate that both environmental conditions and pathogens affect plant growth or by stating plausible explanations for variations in tree growth over time as shown in annual rings; (2) consistently identify a small group of important oak species and state what features they are using for identification; and (3) demonstrate that they have increased their ability to ask questions about their local environment and use resources to answer those questions. Additionally, students will be able to give supported answers to the following questions: what is the white oak's place in the park food web? What would happen to the food web if the white oaks were removed?
