The overarching, “Big Idea” of the Ecology Unit is interdependence. Therefore you should get a good, working definition of the word before we go any further with our studies. The picture below will help set the stage for your quest.
“Ecology is the study of the relationships between different forms of biological life and their natural surroundings. All living things are dependent on both nature and each other for their survival. This dependence is called ecological interdependence and it can take numerous forms — from food webs to habitat creation.” – Kevin Wandrei
Work your way through slides 1-14 of the presentation (link for PP) is on the “quest badge” page)
You can read pages 63-68 in the text for clarification
Go to your Google doc; “Quest Answers”. Copy and past the 3 questions below into the doc. Type your answers in a blue text color below each question.
1. Define, in your own words what “interdependence” means as it relates to Ecology? Use an example or scenario as evidence to back up your definition. Please think through your example. This should be a multi-sentence, structured response.
2. By interacting with their environment organisms can directly affect themselves. Mature trees shade the forest floor; how does this directly affect them?
3. Give an example of 2 objects or activities in your life that are interdependent. Explain your choice.
