Activity 1.3A local ecosystem

field study and report

  • Your task is to write up a report for your field study.
  • Fill in your information on the appropriate slides. You may need to copy some of the slides to include all your information: go to ‘Insert’ and choose ‘Insert duplicate slide’.
  • Make sure you link the starting slide for each topic back to the Index and that the topic is included in the Index.
  • You can insert or delete slides as needed.
  • Where possible, include digital or scanned photos of your ecosystem and your study.

Index
purpose
Purpose

(Name the ecosystem you studied and explain what you were investigating.)

(You can insert a different picture from file or a photo of your ecosystem. Delete this text box.)

general area
General area

(Write a general description of the area, including abiotic and biotic factors.)

methods
Methods

(Describe the methods used to conduct your study.)

results abiotic factors
Results: abiotic factors

(Present a summary of your results.)

results biotic factors
Plant species

Animal species

Results: biotic factors

(Prepare a list of the plant and animals species in the ecosystem.)

population abundance and distribution
Population abundance and distribution

Plant species: (name)

  • The average size of the plant population was …

Animal species: (name)

  • (What is the abundance of the animal species in the area?)
  • (How is the animal species distributed in the area?)

Change in abundance and distribution

  • (Outline some factors that might account for the abundance and distribution of organisms in the ecosystem.)
change over time
Change over time

Plant species: (name)

  • (What changes occurred, or would occur, in the plant species over time of day, season, or time of year?)

Animal species: (name)

  • (What changes occurred, or would occur, in the animal species over time of day, season or time of year?)
impact of humans
Impact of humans

Impacts humans have made on the ecosystem:

How could the quality of the ecosystem be improved, maintained or preserved?

conclusion
Conclusion

(Discuss how your results can be interpreted, their relevance, and any valid conclusions that can be drawn from them.)

discussion abiotic factors
Discussion: abiotic factors

(Include information about the abiotic factors and how these affect the distribution of organisms.)

discussion abiotic changes
Discussion: abiotic changes

(Suggest how the abiotic factors in this ecosystem are likely to change over a 24 hour period.)

discussion trophic interactions
Discussion: trophic interactions

(Include information about the trophic interactions of at least two plant and two animals species and how these interactions may affect distribution and abundance.)

discussion habitats
Discussion: habitats

(Describe the habitats of four different kinds of living things in the ecosystem.)

(Living thing 1)

(Living thing 2)

(Living thing 3)

(Living thing 4)

discussion relationships
Discussion: relationships

(Describe an example of each of the following kinds of relationships evident in the ecosystem.)

  • Predator–prey
  • Parasite–host

(Explain how energy moves through the ecosystem.)

discussion future
Discussion: future

(Include predictions about the future of the ecosystem you studied and any strategies that could be used to conserve and maintain it.)
