This PowerPoint was one very small part of my Ecology Interactions Unit from the website http://sciencepowerpoint.com/index.html .This unit includes a 3 part 2000+ Slide PowerPoint loaded with activities, project ideas, critical class notes (red slides), review opportunities, challenge questions with answers, 3 PowerPoint review games (125 slides each) and much more. A bundled homework package and detailed unit notes chronologically follow the PowerPoint slideshow.
Areas of Focus within The Ecology Interactions Unit: Levels of Biological Organization (Ecology), Parts of the Biosphere, Habitat, Ecological Niche, Types of Competition, Competitive Exclusion Theory, Animal Interactions, Food Webs, Predator Prey Relationships, Camouflage, Population Sampling, Abundance, Relative Abundance, Diversity, Mimicry, Batesian Mimicry, Mullerian Mimicry, Symbiosis, Parasitism, Mutualism, Commensalism, Plant and Animal Interactions, Coevolution, Animal Strategies to Eat Plants, Plant Defense Mechanisms, Exotic Species, Impacts of Invasive Exotic Species.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Thank you again and best wishes.

Sincerely,

  8. 8. • Answer! Both have value, Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy
  9. 9. • Answer! Both have value, but dead trees are extremely valuable to a forest ecosystem because they provide habitat such as den sites, a steady food source of insects, and ultimately fertilize the soil after decay. Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy

  66. 66. • How did an increase in cover habitat change the amount of mice captured by the foxes?
  67. 67. • How did an increase in cover habitat change the amount of mice captured by the foxes? • The data suggests that the high cover habitat was the most difficult to catch mice. Only 13 mice were captured in the high covered compared to 34 in no cover.
