Investigate the nature & functioning of eco-systems

Learn to understand how plants and animals interact and function with each other and the physical environment they live in. Examine the features of the living and non- living components of ecosystems. You will participate in an excursion to investigate a selected ecosystem and examine some factors such as water quality in a lab experiment. Compare selected ecosystems (wetlands, forests, oceans etc) and consider management strategies to improve the quality of one of these ecosystems.
