Beyond Yellowstone

Click here to edit the title
Emily Sell's insight:

The article, "Beyond Yellowstone" by Sally Plumb, discusses the science behind the beautiful scenery of Yellowstone National Park.  Plumb also talks about the various activities the park has to offer.  Yellowstone's education staff created Window's Into Wonderland (WIW) which is a series of electronic fieldtrips accessed through the internet.  Today, 17 programs are available and explore Yellowstone's biology, ecology, and wildlife.  This information is useful for my research.  I plan on using it when discussing tourist attractions of the park.  Because not everyone has access to travel to the park, the electronic field trips provide an alternative that still allow individuals to experience the uniqueness of Yellowstone National Park.

Conservation Biology: The End of the Wild

Click here to edit the title
Emily Sell's insight:

The article, "Conservation Biology: The End of the Wild" by Emma Marris, discusses Yellowstone's climate change and how features of the park will be effected.  Ecologist attempt to make predictions of the changes to come and park managers are preparing for a new management approach.  The approach includes either letting things change or intervening to keep the park the same.  This information will be useful for my research and I plan to use it when talking about the ecology of Yellowstone National Park.

VISITOR CENTER REVIEW; A Cathedral to the Shrine of Nature (Access Library Resource - UW Libraries)

VISITOR CENTER REVIEW; A Cathedral to the Shrine of Nature (Access Library Resource - UW Libraries) | Yellowstone National Park | Scoop.it
Emily Sell's insight:

The article "Visitor Center Review; A Cathedral to the Shrine of Nature" by Edward Rothstein discusses a new building in Yellowstone National Park that is centered around Old Faithful.  The building has minimal impact on the environment.  The article also talks about the geological forces that have shaped this area of the park.  I plan to use this information in my research when discussing the tourist attractions of Yellowstone.  However, I also plan to use the information when I am talking about Old Faithful and the geology of Yellowstone National Park.

Things To Do
Emily Sell's insight:

I found the "Things To Do - Yellowstone National Park" a very helpful resource on the Yellowstone National Park website.  It has various links about things to do at the park.  There are many activities to participate in such as, camping, wildlife viewing, fishing, boating, ranger-led activities, horseback riding, and many other fun activities.  I will use this information in my research paper when discussing tourist attractions and talking about all of the activities Yellowstone National Park has to offer.

Hydrothermal Systems and How They Work
Emily Sell's insight:

I found the article "Hydrothermal Systems and How They Work", on the Yellowstone National Park website.  This article discusses the hydrothermal features of Yellowstone, and why they exist.  The information presented is useful and relates to the geology of Yellowstone; therefore, I will use it when discussing the geology of Yellowstone National Park.

Yellowstone National Park Newspaper article (Access Library Resource - UW Libraries) | Yellowstone National Park | Scoop.it
Emily Sell's insight:

The "Yellowstone National Park" newspaper article by Chuck Raasch, provides an overview of the park including the statistics of the number of visitors coming to the park, the number of waterfalls located in the park, and the number of native plants in the park.  This information will be useful in my research paper.  I plan to use this information when discussing the biology and the history of Yellowstone National Park.

The Yellowstone Fires: Issues in Landscape and Ecology

Emily Sell's insight:

The article "The Yellowstone Fires: Issues in Landscape Ecology" by Dennis Knight and Linda Wallace discusses the significance of the Yellowstone fires and their impact on temporal and special patterns in terrestrial vegetation, including plant adaptations and predicting plant regrowth.  The article also talks about the fires and their impact on shifting animal distribution patterns and land-water-nutrient interactions including, flooding, erosion, and nutrient losses.  The information presented in this article will be useful for my research project because it touches on many different topics that relate to the biology and ecology of Yellowstone National Park.

Yellowstone National Park

Click here to edit the title

Emily Sell's insight:

I found an article titled "Yellowstone National Park" by Susan Anderson.  The article discusses the geysers, wildlife, and history of the park.  Yellowstone is the first and oldest national park in the world (Anderson, 2011) and has unique scenery and wildlife.  I will use this information in my paper when discussing the history of Yellowstone National Park.
