Description: The Connecticut dioramas were developed with the help of one of the founders of the science of ecology, G. Evelyn Hutchinson. These Yale Peabody Museum's dioramas allow the students to visualize complex food webs and ecology in four distinct habitat types present in Connecticut.  This program focuses on habitat, with an investigation of biotic and abiotic factors, biodiversity, and human impacts.
