Description:

Comprehensive website featuring biofilms and biodiversity. Features a wealth of background information, as well as directions on how to conduct your own biofilm experiments using plexiglass discs (or cd's) to culture communities in your local body of water. Experiments demonstrate how water quality, depth, and biodiversity are linked. If your school is not located near water, data and images from the original experiments are available for analysis.
