Challenge Population: Gray Wolf
By: Jessica A, Ben C, and Chris M.
Carbon Cycle
Nitrogen Cycle:
Water Cycle:
Energy Cycle:
Plants use carbon and photosynthesis to make food, which the moose eats. The wolf then eats the moose. The wolf then dies and the carbon from the carcase goes into the air. Then, it restarts the process.
The plants absorb nitrogen which herbivores eat, then the moose eats the plants, the wolf then eats the moose. When the wolf dies the nitrogen from the carcase goes into the air. The process repeats.

The water cycle goes through evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. Since animals drink water to survive, the water goes into them.When the animal dies, the water from the carcase goes into the atmosphere.
Energy from the sun goes to the plants. The moose eats the plants and then the wolf eats the moose. Energy is then transferred to the wolf.

A niche is a organisms certain role/job in their habitat. Some species have the same niche in the same community. If two different groups of species have the same niche they will most likely compete for that role. They will then start a competition for the niche.
Niche and their Strategy:
The gray wolves niche is to increase its population and decrease the surplus population of smaller prey. Their competition strategy for doing so is by going in packs and getting the food needed. By getting the foods needed to survive, the wolves are then able to properly reproduce. I.E. Rabbits, moose, etc.
Wolves in their Packs
This campaign will show you how cycles, mutations, and evolution impact the Gray Wolf.
What do we want to accomplish?
We want to raise awareness about...
*How cycles impact the gray wolf population.
*How natural selection and traits affect the gray wolves reproduction.
*Natural history about this animal.
*How evolution helped the gray wolf survive.

Goals and Objectives:
Our goals and objectives are to inform others about the increasing population about the gray wolf and how the environment affects them in their natural habitat.
Biotic and Abiotic:
Biotic-Plants, food, trees, and animals.
Abiotic-Rocks, water, and sun.
The process where organisms are better adapted to their environment to survive and produce more offspring. Meaning that when the environment changes, so does the animal in order to survive.
Natural Selection:
Particular Traits:
The animal that has a special trait that will help them survive will pass it down when they reproduce. This affects the gray wolf by increasing its population in large numbers.
Differences in Traits:
When having a different physical trait, such as having longer legs, would cause you to have an advantage over others because you would be able to run faster to get your food, or to run from predators.
Differences in Traits:
When having a different behavioral trait, such as being assertive when getting your food, would give you an advantage over the others because you would be persistent in getting to your food.
Genetic Diversity:
Is when the genes in the population change over time, meaning that the genetic characteristics tend to vary from animal to animal. It's important because this keeps the animals different, while being able to survive.
Is the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth.
Evidence of Evolution:
That some sea creatures still have legs and joint bones even if they will not be walking on land anymore. This proves that once in history they were able to.
Challenge population: Evolution evidence-
That the wolf was here even in the early years of earth, and that all dogs come from a descendent of the wolf.
Population Stability:
The population of the gray wolf is increasing.
Reasons for why the population is increasing is because environmental groups will take the animals in, and start a breeding project to increase the population then send them into the wild.
Conservation Group:
The group Defenders of Wildlife save and treat gray wolves everyday to make sure that they do not go extinct. They treat them when the have a medical issue, and they also help with the breeding process.
Concluding Statement:
Wolves are endangered, but this issue is getting better each day. We hope that you learned about how cycles, evolution, and other factors effect the gray wolf population.
Evolutionary History:
The wolf is the ancestor of every dog today. It started off in the North American area, where the coyote was first found.
Have a Great heart for the Gray Wolf!
