Ecosystems & Food Webs
Australia is so lucky to have such diverse habitats from wetlands and rainforests to bushland and desert, which allows us to have such diverse animals. Delve deeper into the animal kingdom in this exploratory incursion on ecosystems and the energy that flows through them to keep them productive. Students will learn how different animals can thrive and survive together in the same ecosystem by fitting into different trophic levels and forming food webs. Of course this is made even more fascinating by meeting some of the animals that make up these systems and discovering their role and value.
