  1. Ecosystems

  2. Introduction to Ecosystems What is a Boreal Forest? Boreal Forest - tai·ga  (tg) n. A subarctic, evergreen coniferous forest of northern Eurasia located just south of the tundra and dominated by firs and spruces

  3. Boreal Forest

  4. Boreal Forests - World

  5. Boreal Forests - Canada

  6. Introduction to Ecosystems • What is the value of a boreal forest? • List 3 negative effects that would occur if it were to be clear cut? NFB – Forestry Film – 0-12 min 05 sec & National Geographic Film

  7. Sustainability • What is sustainability? Sustainability - Capable of being continued with minimal long-term effect on the environment: sustainable agriculture. • Are you willing to sacrifice something to ensure sustainability?

  8. Should our industry grow and expand at any environmental cost? • Do best practices in industry lead to sustainable practices? • What are sustainable practices in your home? • How do we know when they are present?

  9. Survivorman – Boreal Forest • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3xiveiTCdI • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dW_E55TqsVQ&feature=related • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FN9kd9VkSIc&feature=related

  10. Survivorman Boreal Forest • Give an example of a plant and an animal that Survivorman found in the Boreal forest and used for survival. • Explain (what & why it happened) two obstacles that Survivorman faced during his stay in the Boreal forest of Northern Ontario. • Explain (what, why, and how) the methods that Survivorman used to overcome the obstacles from #2.

  11. Survivorman Project • You are the head of the search and rescue team in Charlotte County. Create a presentation for youth explaining how to survive if you get lost in the forest.

  12. You are a journalist for the Charlotte County Courier. You’ve just received a tip that a local person was lost in the forest for 10 days, but managed to survive. Write a newspaper article on this individual’s experience.

  13. You are an artist. The local forest rangers have asked you to create a work of art to be unveiled at a benefit that they are hosting to raise money for boreal forest sustainability projects.

  14. Paradigm shifts Paradigm shifts are rare and significant changes in the way humans view the world. They are major changes which are controversial when first proposed, but eventually come to be accepted as a major advancement in scientific knowledge and understanding. • Examples: that the earth is round not flat and that it rotates around the sun.

  15. Paradigm shifts • Who is affected by a paradigm shift? • How is the general public affected in the short and long term?

  16. Environmental Paradigm Shift? • Has the old world view that the earth and all things on it exist for the sole benefit of humans changed? • Has western civilization been created on the premise of the unlimited exploitation of the earth? • Overall, has the focus shifted to environmental issues and concerns?

  17. Paradigm shifts • Are we (individuals, provinces, countries, continents, global community) now shifting toward the concept of sustainability? • If yes, do you think this shift real and long-term, or just a phase?

  18. Paradigm shifts • Reflect on a past paradigm (for example, resources are limitless) by considering the following questions: How is it possible that people thought this way? What factors contributed to this mind-set? Are there still large numbers in the general population that think this way? Why are we shifting to a different paradigm? • Take part in a debate between two opposing world views on environmental issues. This would demonstrate students’ understanding of paradigm shift.
