We are about to embark on Topic 5 – our last unit for the year!  Here is the syllabus guide for this section: Topic 5 – syllabus guide

This useful presentation covers the first part of the syllabus, namely Topic 5.1.  Here’s another one by Mr. Hobbins that we will use. Ecology definitions  And this is a table of the main definitions. Topic 5 – Ecology definitions

The basic concepts in this first part of ecology have to do with food chains and webs, the flow of energy through ecosystems, and the recycling of nutrients.  These are fundamental concepts that we will revisit throughout the unit.
