This resource is perfect for distance learning and for students in 1:1 classrooms.
Ecology is one of the "must-teach" topics for any biology or life science class. The ecological inter-relationships that occur in nature are fundamental to an understanding of our world and how life interacts with the physical environment as well as with other living organisms. Ecology topics such as population growth dominate the news. We must make sure that our students are knowledgeable in these topics so they can be informed decision makers in the future.
This PowerPoint is on "Population Ecology". It consists of 64 slides that are colorful, informative and visually stimulating. Pictures and diagrams are included that will greatly enhance your instruction to your students. The use of eye-catching photos and diagrams rarely fails to stimulate a lively class discussion.
This resource also includes a set of notes for the teacher (9 pages) and an outline of the notes for the student (12 pages). Graphics, diagrams, clip art, and photographs were chosen to capture the attention of the student as the lesson is being taught. Students will use the outline as the PowerPoint is being presented and will fill in the notes as the lesson is being taught. I always include both the Word document and a pdf of the notes.
Topics covered in this lesson are:
- Characteristics of Populations: Definition of population, population size, geographic distribution, density, dispersion, growth rate, and age structure.
- Types of Dispersion: Clumped, even, and random, definitions and examples are given.
- Population Dynamics: Birth rate, death rate, life expectancy, age structure.
- Patterns of mortality: Survivorship Curves, the three types are defined and explained, examples given.
- Life Histories: Big-bang reproduction and repeated reproduction
- Population Growth: Growth rate, factors that determine the size of a population, migration, density, exponential growth, carrying capacity, limits to population growth, graphs of different types of population growth, logistic growth, assumptions of the exponential model and the logistic model.
- Carrying capacity and Logistic growth.
- Limits to Growth: Limiting factors, examples of limiting factors, density-dependent factors, competition, predation, parasitism, disease, territoriality, density independent factors.
- Human Population Growth: The history of human population growth, current human population growth, demographic transition, age-structure diagrams.
This PowerPoint was written with a typical biology I class in mind. It can easily be edited to meet your needs.
