Ecosystem Paper

Session 2 Ecosystem Paper

Observe an ecosystem, either in your backyard, a natural area within a city, a park, or another place outdoors. Take note of plant and animal life (that includes looking for traces of animals such as scat, hair, footprints, etc.). Then write a 2-3 page paper that includes the following listed points. It is required that you apply vocabulary and information from your reading and research in your ecosystem description with support from a minimum of two sources.

 

  • Describe the location you chose to observe
    • Research the term “abiotic” and discuss abiotic factors that influence the       ecosystem.
  • What populations did you observe (or have observed in the      past) in the ecosystem?
  • Describe the biological communities that exist.
  • What components of a food web or food chain (e.g., producers,      consumers, decomposers, etc.) did you observe?  
  • What interactions did you observe (or likely exist) within      the ecosystem: Provide specific examples for the following interactions:
    • symbiosis (parasitism, mutualism, and commensalism)
    • predation
    • competition

Before submitting your paper, be sure your paper meets all the grading criteria presented in the rubric.
