Daily Learning Targets
Unit 6: Ecology
These are the EOC learning targets for Unit 6: Ecology. We will be covering all of these learning targets in
class, and they will be used to construct our next exam. Some of these learning targets may be broken down
into smaller ones, or combined, in order to better cover the material. Other learning targets may also be added
as we proceed throughout this unit. You must learn the material pertaining to each learning target in order to
do well during this unit. These learning targets are aligned with the Quality Core Standards for Biology.
1. I can define and provide examples of biosphere, biome, ecosystem, community, population, species, habitat,
and niche. (F.1.a)
2. I can discuss biotic and abiotic factors that affect land and aquatic biomes. (F.1.b)
3. I can discuss the role of beneficial bacteria (e.g., in the recycling of nutrients) (F.1.c)
4. I can explain how energy flows through ecosystems in one direction, from photosynthetic organisms to
herbivores to carnivores and decomposers. (F.1.d)
5. I can explain how the amount of life any environment can support is limited by the available matter and
energy and by the ability of ecosystems to recycle the residue of dead organic materials. (F.1.e)
6. I can explain how organisms cooperate and compete in ecosystems and how interrelationships and
interdependencies of organisms may generate ecosystems that are stable for thousands of years. (F. 1. f)
7. I can diagram the flow of energy using food webs, food chains, and pyramids (e.g., pyramid of energy,
pyramid of biomass, and pyramid of numbers. (F.1. g)
8. I can describe examples of competition, symbiosis, and predation. (F.1.h)
9. I can explain the concept of carrying capacity. (F.1.i)
10. I can describe the growth of populations, including exponential and logistic growth (e.g., design and
conduct an experiment investigating bacterial growth using appropriate calculations). (F.1.j)
11. I can explain the process of ecological succession, and describe the different communities that result. (F1.k)
12. I can read and describe current journal articles relating to environmental concern (e.g., loss of biodiversity,
habitat loss, pollution) (F.1.l)
13. I can discuss and evaluate the significance of human interference with major ecosystems (e.g., the loss of
genetic diversity in cloned crops or animals). (F.1.m)
