Definitions REVIEW: Energy flow, Food Chain, Food Web, Cycles in Nature. Environment: all the biotic and abiotic factors around us. Organism: living thing that carries put minimal life processes. Population: group of living organisms from the same species occupying a given habitat. Habitat: a place that is natural for the growth and development of an organism. Niche: the function or role of an organism in its habitat.
Community: group of interacting populations occupying a given area. Biome: a complex biotic community characterized by distinctive plant and animal species and maintained under the climatic conditions of the region. 8
What is Biodiversity? • The number and variety of organisms found within a specified geographic region. Hypothesized distribution of species living on earth today.
DEBATE • Form 4 groups, two groups of 7 students and two groups of 8 students. • The groups of 7 students must prepare a PPT presentation of 15 slides as a minimum. • The groups of 8 students must make a video of 5 minutes, at least. • Both presentations will have to contain compelling arguments in favor of YOUR group's position and strong comments against the opposing group. • Debate 1: Industry‐Society and Environment. • Debate 2: Cyclic climatic situation or Man‐made?
Debate 1: Hint
Debate 2: Hint

Teacher's Notes This class has been designed to cover the topics of Functions in Organisms III: Reproduction and Growth from Monday June 1st till Friday June 5th. For further knowledge about this topic: 1. Conduct a thorough search under the topic: Reproduction and Growth on the Web, books and magazines. 2. If findings are not specific, ask your teacher for suggestions.
Objectives • Learn and understand the distribution of biodiversity in the world when it is related to weather and geographical features. • Analyze why certain regions are more biodiverse than others.
Note: All, or most, of the objectives will be covered during class time, however the student must be responsible for those objectives not covered or concluded.
