This ecology lab on algae labs has students explore the relationship between algae blooms and the amount of fertiziler runoff that makes its way to bodies of water. 

Students are first instructed to read an article on algae blooms in the Ohio River. Students are then prompted to do a runoff modeling activity and a lab to test how the amount of dissolved fertilizer affects algae growth.
