Replication of influential studies by undergraduates
We are soliciting ideas for influential studies in ecology / evolutionary biology / animal behavior that would be logistically feasible to replicate by well-supervised undergraduates.
This is an early stage in a project designed to:
- introduce students to the role of replication in science
- promote the development of a culture of well-designed replication in ecology and evolution
To this end, we are developing undergraduate laboratory modules that are explicitly designed to encourage students to understand science as an iterative process that includes replication as a tool to assess the validity and generality of hypotheses.
These undergraduate modules will be replications of influential studies. Data from each replication will be submitted to a central database to facilitate later meta-analyses of student replication (and modules will be designed to promote reliability of student data).
