"Keystone Species, Shrinking Red Knots, and Biomes"
Our focus this anniversary is on ecology. Anatomy is the abstraction of interactions amid bacilli and amid bacilli and their concrete environments. For your primary post, acknowledge toone of the afterward three topics. Also, acknowledgment to at atomic one adolescent apprentice on any topic.
Topic 1 [video]: Antecedent Species. Watch the video advantaged “Some animals are added according than others…” (1)* Then absolutely describe the abstraction of a antecedent species, giving specific examples from the video.
Topic 2 [articles]: Shrinking Red Knots. Apprehend two of the afterward three accessories about shrinking Red Knots (2)*, (3)*, (4)*, or analysis added advice on your own. Then, abode the afterward issues:
(a) Explain how the lifecycle of the Red Knot depends on hatchlings arising at the aforementioned time as the insects hatch.
(b) What are the abiding ramifications of accepting a conflict amid the bird bear and the insect hatch?
(c) Of the two accessories you read, which of them do you feel was best informative? Why?
Topic 3 [research]: Biomes. The appellation "biome" is declared in the textbook. For this topic, call the biome area you grew up (or area you currently live). Identify your location, the biome of the region, and call the above characteristics of that biome. Add abundant detail and annotation from your own experience. If you're absolutely ambitious, you could accede attractive up the EPA "ecoregion,” which will accord added capacity about your region.
