Timing of Masting and Lyme Disease- Student A

After covering both Lyme disease and masting in the classroom, we asked our students to construct a concept map that covers a timeline of three years. The first year is a masting year. The second and third years follow and are not masting years. Students were to draw a map of the effects of the timing of masting, over these three years, on the increased risks of Lyme disease in humans. Below is an example of this map, which was contributed by one of our students. Despite its simplicity, this map indicates that this student understood the significance and effects of masting, not only during the masting year, but also for the two years immediately following that year. We used Cmap Tools ver. 3.8 to present this map.
