Science 10 Global Warming project

The purpose of this project is to give an example of global warming’s effect on the environment in a specific area, a particular species, or a community. You will choose an example (teacher approved) and explain how global warming has affected the subject that you chose. For example, if you chose an animal species (such as polar bears), you would explain exactly what about global warming has affected them, and how. Is it the temperature of the water? The melting of the ice? If so, what was the effect of that factor, in particular, on the polar bears? Does it reduce their food supply (prey) and thus reduce numbers of bears? Does it impact their reproduction or the survival of their young? Does it affect their bodies/physiology in some way that makes it harder for them to survive? Is it causing habitat loss? Be specific.

It would be good to give us a bit of information about the subject that you chose (eg. if it is polar bears, be sure to give the species, range (where they are found), what they eat, how many young they have each year, and any other important information; or if you chose a particular ecosystem or location (such as the Galapagos Islands, for example), give its location, what grows/lives there, what is the landscape (mountains, desert, plains, coastline, etc), what are the normal conditions (hot, humid, dry, cold, lots of precipitation, etc), and so on.

The presentation should be 1-2 minutes long.

There is no research paper due, but you must produce a poster (blocks 1-1 and 2-3) or digital presentation (block 1-3). Include all references used.

Biology 11 2-1 and 2-2 1 April 2016

Finish labeling the planaria diagrams, answer flatworm and roundworm questions, and read the notes page given today on early development. Read accompanying textbook/workbook sections.

We will continue on with unsegmented worms next day. Remember to watch the “Atlantic deep coral” video using the link in last day’s blog post.
