  "Keystone Species, Shrinking Crimson Knots, and Biomes" Our focus this week is on ecology.  Ecology is the research of interactions amongst organisms and between organisms and their bodily environments. To your main submit, reply toone of the next three subjects. Additionally, reply to no less than one fellow scholar on any subject. Subject 1 [video]:  Keystone Species. Watch the video entitled “Some animals are extra equal than others…” (1)* Then utterly describe the idea of a keystone species, giving particular examples from the video.  Subject 2 [articles]: Shrinking Crimson Knots. Learn two of the next three articles about shrinking Crimson Knots (2)*, (three)*, (four)*, or analysis further info by yourself. Then, handle the next points:   (a) Clarify how the lifecycle of the Crimson Knot is dependent upon hatchlings rising concurrently the bugs hatch.   (b) What are the long-term ramifications of getting a mismatch between the chook hatch and the insect hatch?  (c) Of the 2 articles you learn, which ones do you are feeling was most informative?  Why?Subject three [research]: Biomes. The time period "biome" is described within the textbook. For this subject, describe the biome the place you grew up (or the place you at the moment stay). Determine your location, the biome of the area, and describe the most important traits of that biome. Add sufficient element and commentary from your individual expertise. When you're actually bold, you might think about wanting up the EPA "ecoregion,” which can give further particulars about your area.  *References (in Strayer Writing Requirements format).HHMI Biointeractive, Might three, 2016, Some animals are extra equal than others: keystone species and trophic cascades., https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1142&v=hRGg5it5FMI Briggs, H.
