America's Most Unwanted Project and Ecology Review.

Today students reviewed some ideas in ecology with the following questions.

Four check-in questions:
1. Compare and contrast a food web to a food chain.  Which is more realistic?  Why?

2. How does a modeling program like Ecobeaker help us in science?  What are its limitations (What can't it provide for us)?

3. List three different trophic levels found in an ecosystem.  Give a specific organism that can be linked to each of the levels and what it feeds on (how does it get its energy?).

4. How does the energy in a food chain transfer from one trophic level to another?  How much energy actually passes from one organism to another organism?

We also started to discuss the America's Most Unwanted Project.
