marine biomes and population biology

marine biomes and population biology.

Part III, Chapter 5 continued/Chapter 6:

This part of the activity will focus on different marine biomes and population biology. As with terrestrial biomes, marine biomes also each have particular climate conditions and other factors that determine location on the planet. When we consider human impacts upon organisms within biomes on land and in the sea, population biology comes into play. Dynamics of population growth and factors that limit it can be interrupted through resource extraction, habitat fragmentation, and pollution.

Instructions

Review Section 5.2, entitled Marine Ecosystems, and the Case Study at the beginning of Chapter 6, entitled “Fishing to Extinction?” and Section 6.2, entitled “Factors that regulate population growth.” In this exercise, we will go back to Google Earth. Open Google Earth, and in the search box enter Great Barrier Reef, Queensland. Click Search. Explore the reefs and consider information in Section 5.2.

Questions to Complete:

What are the key living things that are found in a coral reef? Describe at least one other marine biome discussed in Section 5.2. (3 points)
