SEV2. Students will demonstrate an understanding that the Earth is one interconnected system. a. Describe how the abiotic components (water, air, and energy) affect the biosphere. b. Recognize and give examples of the hierarchy of the biological entities of the biosphere (organisms, populations, communities, ecosystems, and biosphere). Ecology Unit Standards

SEV2. Students will demonstrate an understanding that the Earth is one interconnected system. c. Characterize the components that define a Biome. Abiotic Factors to include precipitation, temperature and soils. Biotic Factors plant and animal adaptations that create success in that biome. d. Characterize the components that define fresh-water and marine systems. Abiotic Factors to include light, dissolved oxygen, phosphorus, nitrogen, pH and substrate. Biotic Factors plant and animal adaptations characteristic to that

system. Ecology Unit Standards SEV1. Students will investigate the flow of energy and cycling of matter within an ecosystem and relate these phenomena to human society. a. Interpret biogeochemical cycles including hydrologic, nitrogen, phosphorus, oxygen, and carbon cycles. Recognize that energy is not recycled in ecosystems. b. Relate energy changes to food chains, food webs, and to trophic levels in a generalized ecosystem, recognizing

that entropy is a primary factor in the loss of usable food energy during movement up the trophic levels. Ecology Unit Standards SEV1. Students will investigate the flow of energy and cycling of matter within an ecosystem and relate these phenomena to human society. c. Relate food production and quality of nutrition to population growth and the trophic levels d. Relate the cycling of matter and the flow of energy to the Laws of Conservation of matter and energy.
