Food Webs-(Activity 79)
1. What effect do introduced species have on ecosystems?
2. What does the direction of an arrow in a food web indicate (show)?
3. What happens to energy as you go further up the food chain?
4. Draw a food web. Include produces (mark P), primary consumers (C1), secondary consumers (C2),
tertiary consumers (C3) and quaternary consumers (C4)
Competition (Activity 84-Clam Catch)

2. How does an introduced species effect competition?
3. Be able to interpret a graph of competition.
Carrying Capacity- (Activity 85-Is there room for one more?)
1.
How do you determine carrying capacity when looking at a graph?
2. What is the relationship between predator and prey in terms of carrying capacity?
3. In a lake ecosystem, what are some biotic factors that could affect carrying capacity?
4. In a lake ecosystem, what are some abiotic factors that could affect carrying capacity?
Activity 87- Too many mussels
Given an invasive species, speak logically on reasons to control, factors to control, issues surrounding the
invasive and why it might be a good thing to let it grow.
