The Biodiversity of the Earth Graphic Organizer Fold-Out Guided Notes covers the three components of biodiversity: diversity of genes, diversity of species and diversity of ecosystems / habitats. Students will define species evenness and species richness.
The second half of the notes will focus on the five major threats to Earth's biodiversity; habitat destruction, pollution, foreign species introduction, global climate change and exploitation. Different ecological niches such as keystone species and indicator species are also covered as well as air, soil and water quality.
Students will also review leading conservation efforts; sustainability, legislation, restoration, rewilding, alternative energy, recycling & repairing, nature reserves and education.
