and how they interact with other listed and nonlisted species. There is also a need to integrate the Platte River populations of plovers and particularly of terns with their larger populations. Platte River terns, for example, appear to range widely (up to at least 170 mi away from the river), so understanding of the Platte population cannot focus solely on the river. Finally—as is the case with conclusions related to time trends in climatic data, hydrological data, and crane population numbers—conclusions related to trends in the populations of plovers and terns must take into account the longest periods possible rather than focusing on a few years of record.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
