Ecology Projects – Partners or groups of 3
Pick 1 of 2 CP honors must complete both sections
Gaining an understanding of ecology requires some work. Your students can gain that understanding by completing projects that are focused on ecology. Visual and 3-D models of ecosystems help students comprehend the interactions between species and their environment as well as within and between different species.
Shoebox Ecosystem Project
Materials
* plastic shoebox with lid
* clay or Play-doh
* dirt
* water
* rubber animals and plants
The Shoebox Ecosystem Project can be used to demonstrate your knowledge of a healthy community of species. On the top of the box you will type and display the problems your species faces to survive. You will include everything you learned this semester in your presentation.

Project guidelines
You must demonstrate your knowledge of both the ecology and evolution Standards by creating a ecological community in a shoe box. You must also write a page paper that includes all aspects of competition, predation, and the niche. Who what where when and why are also necessary to describe your community and the living and non living factors that affect your species carrying capacity.

Part 2 choose one of the following projects to investigate and you must describe The Who what where when and why on a poster board and include proof that you did actually complete the activity .
these are the project

Learning target : Students will take notes and view a clip that reveals information about Hardy Weinberg and population genetics
1) notes
2) problems Google classroom

A population of cats can be either black or white; the black allele (B) has
complete dominance over the white allele (b). Given a population of 1,000 cats, 840 black and
160 white, determine the allele frequency, the frequency of individuals per genotype, and

Hw : finish all problems

1) Genetic drift – a change in allele frequency due to random chance
Causes a loss of diversity
Affects small populations.. leads to a bottleneck ( drastic reduction in the number of species small populations can lead to a new population called the founder affect
2) Gene flow – occurs when populations join new populations and reproduce and increases the chances of a different species evolving ( liger) (Mule) less likely a species will be able to adapt or reproduce
3) Mutations – leads to genetic variation needed for evolution to occur
4) Sexual Selection selects traits to improve the species and for mating success’
5) Natural Selection selects traits most advantageous for survival
***Mechanisms of change – (mutations, Migration, genetic drift and natural selection)
6) co-evolution is used to describe cases where two (or more) species reciprocally affect each other’s evolution. Co-evolution is likely to happen when different species have close ecological interactions with one another. These ecological relationships include:
Predator/prey and parasite/host
Competitive species
Mutualistic species

Cellular Respiration

6 O2 + C6H12O6 —> 6 CO2 + 6 H20
Reactants Products

Glucose is sugar and obtained from food

Macromolecules – large molecules
Proteins – chains of amino acids ( build and repairs cell parts)
Carbohydrates – sugars – saccharides (poly many, di – two, mono -1) starches. Candy fruit
Fats – lipids ( energy storage) 24% women 15 % men ideal more than 10% above those levels is obese
Nucleic Acid – DNA = Deoxyribonucleic Acid RNA -ribonucleic Acid (blueprints of life)

Aerobic Respiration (3 steps)
Glycolysis (cytoplasm) needs 2 ATP molecules to produce 4 ATP net gain +2 ATP
Krebs – Citric Acid Cycle (mitochondria – outer) +2 ATP
Electron Transport Chain – (mitochondria -inner) Uses Oxygen +34 ATP molecules

+38 ATP molecules are released

Anaerobic respiration (fermentation)
No oxygen Yeast/alcohol
