ECOSYSTEMS IN ACTION 2:
Three videos, A New England Pond, The Great Lakes
Ecosystem and The Web of Life, on one DVD.
A NEW ENGLAND POND
Some of the best work in ecology has been done on small
fresh water pond ecosystems. This live-action video uses a
small New England pond to teach basic concepts in
ecosystem science. Food webs are illustrated, the abiotic-
producer-consumer-decomposer cycles, problems of acid
rain and pond succession are also stressed.
THE GREAT LAKES ECOSYSTEM
The largest chain of fresh water lakes in the world has
special ecological problems of its own. This live-action
video explains some of the challenges today. Stressed are
the sea lamprey, toxic wastes in the lakes, the coming of
the zebra mussel and the ruffe fish.
