Some activities in this module are available in two forms. The left column lists the activity name, the right column links to the pdf form of the file, and some link to the EDIS version of the file. The pdf format is the original version published in 2009. This version has been edited extensively and is now available via the University of Florida Electronic Data Information System (EDIS).
