Every organism on the planet is connected in one way or another. Discover the many ways that organisms coexist together through the varying ecological levels, the relationships animals have with one another and how resource and food availability is affecting almost every level within the biosphere.
Georgia Standards of Excellence
- S7L4. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to examine the interdependence of organisms with one another and their environments.
- a. Construct an explanation for the patterns of interactions observed in different ecosystems in terms of the relationships among and between organisms and abiotic components of the ecosystem. (Clarification statement: The interactions include, but are not limited to, predator-prey relationships, competition, mutualism, parasitism, and commensalism.)
- c. Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for how resource availability, disease, climate, and human activity affect individual organisms, populations, communities, and ecosystems.
Next Generation Science Standards
- MS-LS-2-2 Construct an explanation that predict patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.
