The principles of Ecology power point is a 19 slide presentation on the basic concepts of ecology. Beginning with a bellringer, students start to explore the interactions between organisms (including mutualism, commensalism, parasitism and competition ) Students learn the basic level of ecological organization including (species, population, community, ecosystem) . Students can also explore the roles of various organisms within an ecosystem (including producers, consumers, and decomposers). The power point also highlights trophic levels, food chains and food webs.
For a continuation of Ecology topics look for my Population Ecology power point and my Biomes power point.
