  32.   Pond Water Web
Purpose: As a result of this lesson, students will become familiar with common organisms found in a pond and discover their importance in a balanced aquatic habitat as they create food webs. Students will also investigate how an environmental change (pollution, disease, introduction of exotic species, etc.) affects a pond habitat. Lesson Objectives As a result of this lesson, students will be able to: (1) Identify common plants and animals living in an aquatic environment. (2) Create a food web illustrating the relationship of organisms in an aquatic habitat. (3) Determine the impact of environmental changes on a po...

  38.   Forests for People
.... In 2002, the Forest Service identified four 'threats' that imperil the nation's precious National Forests. Keeping America's forests and grasslands healthy requires restoring and rehabilitating damaged areas to: (1) prevent severe wildfires, (2) stop the introduction, establishment, and spread of invasive species, (3) reduce the conversion of forest and grasslands that leads to fragmentation of rural landscapes through subdivision, and (4) manage impacts of motorized recreation vehicles by restricting use to designated roads and trails. For more information about these issues, visit the Forest Service website at http://...

  39.   How Do Populations Grow?
...Once you have completed this lesson you should be able to: 1. Define population, exponential growth, carrying capacity, population crash, S curve, J curve, ecosystem. 2. Describe how populations grow and how the carrying capacity of an environment controls the growth of populations. 3. Describe how invasive species can affect the balance of ecosystems. Background Ecologists study the size and rate of growth of populations in order to predict how they will change with time. By learning how and why a population of birds, plants, or fish thrives or dies out in a particular area, ecologists can understand the delicate balance...
