LEMMING

LEMMING is a simulation of an ecosystem on the arctic tundra. The program has been designed in order to enable students to experiment with a simulated terrestrial ecosystem. The arctic tundra ecosystem was choosen from a number of alternatives for its relative simplicity. By means of active experimentation students may experience the mutual dependency of the main biotic components of the ecosystem: plants, herbivores, carnivores and decomposers.
