Wonderful case study. I incorporate an intro to the nitrogen cycle and a review of cellular respiration/metabolic poisons and genetics. The white clover project lab activity from Washington University goes well with the activity as well:

Fantastic case study! I teach A.P. Environmental Science and I cover this during my evolution section. It is also gives me an opportunity to review genetics and a little preview of toxicology that I cover later in the course. Wonderful!
