    1. Inquiry, inquiry based learning, is when simple observations turn into a curious question like “Why does it do that?” “Why does it change colors?” “What makes it move?”. Then that simple observation will catalyze an experiment, causing the individual to make a discovery proving that their idea is right or wrong. They will learn through trial and error, they will be able to grasp why something is the way it is or why that happens. 2. An example of a guided inquiry project I could facilitate with 5th grade students would be “How do abiotic and biotic factors in an ecosystem interact and help each other?” This would be excellent in stimulating their minds because they would have to take into question of how non-living things and living things…

    beaches, one of which is Sorento beach in Perth. Queensland has controlled its shark population through drumlines and shark nets since 1962. There are currently 360 drum lines and 30 shark nets deployed along the coast. New South Wales has had no long term drumline polices in the past but have had nets for the past 15 years. New South Wales still has nets in place but has recently implimented 'smart drumlines' which are modelled after traditional drumlines. These include a sensor that notifies…

    present study, two freshwater stream environments were studied: riffles, which are rocky areas with fast-flowing, shallow water, and pools, which are areas of deeper, slow-moving water. The effects of biotic factors on species diversity have already been studied. Competition between freshwater, inhabiting organisms generally results in a decreased population size for both organisms and a displacement or elimination of one of the competing species (D. M. Baltz et al. 2011). This present study…

    Abiotic factors are factors that are not living but affect living things. Two examples are fire and soil. These play very important roles in the savanna and help biotic factors live. Fire as we know burns and destroys many things. Although this is true it actually helps renew and change the savanna so that it doesn’t become a tropical forest. The soil also is a big component because without soil there would not be plants and without plants the animals would not be able to survive. These 2…

    People cut down trees to build things, but in the process they take away organism’s habitats. A biotic limiting factor is the competition between species. The rainforest is very diverse with different species and all of them have a very specific niches because of the number of populations. An other biotic limiting factor is the density of the trees that allows for few plants to be able to grow near the ground in…

    water to replenish it. If in fresh water, animals have to remove excess water by constant urination. Ions are available in the soil, and the availability of these ions directly influence the growth rate and diversity. 4. Describe and analyse one abiotic and one biotic factor in your chosen ecosystem that may affect the population of a named organism. a. Abiotic Factor: Light Phytoplankton, a marine plant which do not have roots, stems, nor leaves, are a small and microscopic plant which use…

    conditions (Babbock 1987).Biotic and abiotic factors play a large roll in an ecosystem. Biotic factors are living things like plants and animals while abiotic factors are things like sunlight and temperature. Laboratory settlement experiments over invertebrates utilizing different light intensities indicated that light level was the variable responsible for changes in settlement orientation with depth (Babcock 1996). Just like humans marine animals have certain parameters that they like to live…

    out-competed the column barnacle. (Luckens, 1975) The brown barnacle does not settle on other barnacles and only settles in late summer, while the column barnacle settles year round. This gives the column barnacle an advantage at lower tidal zones and allows it to out-compete the brown barnacle. (Luckens, 1975) Abiotic and Biotic Factors Although both organisms are affected by a variety of abiotic and biotic factors, the main biotic factor is competition and the main abiotic factor is space.…

    Therefore, understanding variation of plankton communities with distance from shore will allow us to better understand how the unique features of the California bight influence their distribution. In order to do this water samples from three locations within the Southern California Bight were collected in order to analyze the planktonic community present both vertically and horizontally off the coast. Biotic factors such as salinity, temperature and nutrients were also…
