Ecology Project
1) Choose an Area of a certain habitat of your ecosystem. (Suggested: garden or pond, etc).
2) Take a picture of the designated area.
3) Write a brief description of the area, its location, measure the area and weather
conditions during the sample.
4) Take pictures of individuals of the different populations.
5) Research their names and write brief description about each of them.
6) Count the number of individuals of a certain species. (use a quadrant method if they are
too many and include a picture of it)
7) Build food chains and food webs with those pictures.
8) Take pictures of any human impact or influence on that habitat.
9) Write a brief description of how this impact or influence can affect the ecosystem.
10) Suggest solutions to reduce the effects of human impact on your area.
