Research Focus Questions

1. Can we determine the the types (species) of Tardigrades that are present in our area?

2. Can we find new species (undiscovered) of tardigrades?

3. What is the geographic area occupied by (range)of various species of tardigrades?

4. How do Tardigrades get from one geographic area to another (dispersal)?

These research focus questions are intended to give direction to your study of tardigrades. you need to develop a deep, rich understanding of tardigrades including the species of tardigrades in the world and the range that those species occupy.

Working through the elements of research in the Creating the Context area will help guide your work of learning about tardigrades and allow you to work with others who are also interested. The collaboration of the PathFinder Science community will provide a rich data set of tardigrade information. Work your way through the links of Creating the Context listed on the left side of the page. These element will allow the Pathfinder Science community to communicate and work together to develop this new information. Trying to answer the focus questions above will will lead to ask new and interesting questions about tardigrades. Questions will also emerge from the background information provided in the project in combination with the field work that you do. These questions will help you develop you own tardigrade research based on the community work.

With the focus questions above guiding your work, let's start learning about tardigrades in the background information.
