Community interaction

An ecosystem is a system formed by the interaction of a community of organisms with their environment. Busch Gardens is a combination of different ecosystems, as is the Tampa Bay area. Cheetah Run is its own unique ecosystem, as is Jungala and the Myombe Reserve. In the St. Petersburg Times, identify news stories that relate to different ecosystems. Cut out or print the articles and briefly summarize them. As news items are identified, post them on poster board. As the number of news summaries grows, analyze places where several environmental impacts or other news items overlap. Discuss with classmates how these conditions may be affecting the humans and animals that live in or migrate through the area. Share what you have learned here on the NIE Bloggigng Zone.
