Transcript of SwimBHS Ecosystem Computer Investigation

Ecosystems to investigate & compare.

What's the same across Ecosystems?

You are to research TWO 'classic' ecosystems and apply your understanding of the living and non living components. Create a Prezi, PowerPoint or Google Slides to compare your findings.
You must research:
4 Abiotic factors
2 examples of organisms at multiple trophic levels (think food web)
2 specific locations that represent this ecosystem
Cite sources
Examples must be
specific & appropriate
to your system.
See the rubric in the last slide for grading!

Research summary *specific & appropriate* for 2 ecosystems; Comparison of all factors; Photos of organisms; Specific species highlighted; Maps of example ecosystems; pleasing design; sources cited
Criteria generic (Bears) vs. specific (American Grizzly Bear) or "Hot" vs. "Temps between 30-40 degrees C";
Comparison of all factors; Photos of organisms; Specific species highlighted; Maps of example ecosystems; pleasing design; sources cited
Generic criteria; no photos. Generic ecosystems, no maps; Some criteria compared; Limited or plain design (Black/white ppt); sources cited
A presentation about something in an ecosystem; Limited or plain design (Black/white ppt); no sources

It's OK to use Google to help define terms like
'abiotic' and 'trophic' if they are unfamiliar!
So, Select 2 systems, then...
Design a way to compare your 2 systems across the following criteria:
Climate (sunlight, temperature, etc)
How water effects living things
Plant life
Herbivore animals (don't forget insects!)
Predator animals
