This detailed bundle addresses the following essential question, "What are the characteristics of aquatic biomes?" Students should begin making the connection between ecological organization within specific biomes in addition to abiotic and biotic factors within each biome.
Students are exposed to several different ecological biomes, both freshwater and salt water. Specific biomes include rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, wetlands, open ocean (including the zones within the open ocean), coral reefs and estuaries. Excellent details are provided for each biome, included species that reside there, amount of salinity, nutrients, oxygen, etc.
