instructionsEcologyThis unit is about ecology, the study of the interaction between living species. As we discussed in the unit lesson, all species are dependent on one another—even trees need birds to eat the insects that want to devour the trees. Some trees, like oaks, need squirrels to plant their acorns. Consequently, when you study a species in the Red List for this assignment, be aware that somewhere along the line, this species is important.Materials Needed:
Unit V Assignment Worksheet
A computer with Internet access
Directions:
Click on https://www.iucnredlist.org (or copy and paste the URL into your browser) to go to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species website. Take a moment to peruse the website. Scroll down and look at a few of the animals and the news articles.
Next, you will search for and select a species that falls into one of the following categories: Near Threatened (NT), Vulnerable (VU), Endangered (EN) or Critically Endangered (CR).
Search instructions:Start by clicking ‘Advanced’ (located next to the search field at the top of the page).
At the Advanced Search page, on the left side of the screen, scroll down and click the ‘Red List Category’ dropdown menu; select CR, EN, VU and NT or LR/nt. You may select only one of these if you choose. Selecting all of them will yield more results. DO NOT select LC, DD, EX, EW or LR/cd. Doing so will result in substantial point deductions.
After selecting the categories, click the ‘Land Regions’ dropdown menu and select ‘North America’. If you would like to select another region, feel free to do so.
With these parameters selected, you should see many organisms to choose from. Scroll through and find one that interests you and answer the questions below.

1. Recall the concept of carrying capacity from the logistic population growth model discussed in the unit lesson and Required Unit Resources. How have humans modified the carrying capacity of the environment they live in? Describe some specific examples, especially in relation to where you live.
Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.
2. A thought-provoking article by Darimont et al. (2015), which is a resource in the Required Unit Resources, called humans unsustainable super predators with the power to alter ecological and evolutionary processes globally. What qualities would you think make humans a super predator? From what you have learned in this unit and from your personal experience or research, refute or accept this claim. Please provide some specific examples.
Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.
3.
InstructionsHumans have a long history of controlling “undesirable” species, like predators perceived as destructive to domestic animals and game species. In North America, predators like wolves, coyotes, and birds of prey have been extensively shot and trapped, sometimes to near extinction.
Culling, the removal of individual animals from a population, is sometimes used in wildlife management for population control.
What is your opinion on culling of wildlife populations regarding ecological and ethical considerations?
Is there a time that culling is appropriate?
Are there viable alternatives to culling?
Please feel free to do some independent research. For insight, please see the video below on active management to address a disease epidemic in an African nature reserve.

For this Current Events assignment you will be taking a virtual tour of the Research Vessel Weatherbird II and of COT, the Center of Ocean Technology, where USF researchers will show you various tools they use to study the marine environment via remote sensing
http://usfweb.usf.edu/courseresources/ms/oce2001/v…
http://usfweb.usf.edu/courseresources/ms/oce2001/v…
After watching the virtual tour videos…
Select ONE of the stations aboard the R/V Weatherbird II and write a summary (1) about the tools and equipment that are used at that station, as well as (2) what kind of research is often done with these instruments, and (3) what kind of data the instruments collect.
Please select the 1. remote sensing and 2. one other marine science tools from the COT fieldtrip. For each tool please write a summary answering questions about (1) what the tool is used for, (2) how it operates, and (3) what kind of data it collects.
Please submit a .docx file.
Note: Some stations will be better than others for answering these questions so please choose intelligently.

doing presentation slides About ( Arabian Oryx) and covering all information that i will provide you in two files the description and rubric follows each step and covers all information in each slide. Provide outline of each slide for explaining because the slides should be as pointed.
Format of Presentation – each number corresponds to the material needed for each slide of your presen-
tation:
1.) Title Slide – this should include the common name, scientific name and a catchy phrase/title to inter-
est us in your animal. It should also include a picture of the animal.
2.) Taxonomic Group – starting with Kingdom Animalia – list the Phylum, Class, Order, and Family to
which your animal belongs, as well as list the scientific name of the animal itself.
3.) Habitat, Range, and Ecology – this slide should include a description of the types of habitat(s) where
your species is found (freshwater wetlands, temperate forests, marine intertidal?), where it is found geo-
graphically (its range), and some interesting facts about the animal’s ecology (Is it a predator? What
does it eat?, etc.).
Photos and maps enhance the information.
4.) One distinctive morphological characteristic of your animal that appears to be an adaptation to its
habitat or lifestyle (think of special appendages, body shape as related to movement, etc.)
5. and 6.) Research done on your animal – use one slide to give the overall goals and objectives of the
primary literature paper that you chose to read about your animal (was this study done to understand this
animal’s mating behaviors, is it a phylogenetic study to understand its closest relatives, is it a look at
how this species responds to changes in carbon dioxide levels in the ocean?)
On the second slide, include the most important figure or table from your paper that summarizes the re-
sults of the study on your animal. When you give your presentation, you will need to walk us through
both axes of the figure or the columns of information on the table and summarize the trends that it
shows.
7.) Why did you choose this animal? Give us one personal connection or fascinating fact that you know
about this animal that led you to choose it.
8.) Literature Cited Slide
With the exception of the literature cited slide, do not go below 24pt. font. Limit your presentation to 8 slides.
The literature source are :

Don’t be overwhelmed by technical language; you may need to look up key terms

For this assignment, complete these steps:
Read the original peer-reviewed scientific publication following the guidelines below. In this case, you will read a review paper.
Review Paper: provided in the file
Keep in mind that reading scientific journal articles is a bit different from other types of reading.The figures are just as important as the text:Read the captions
Look at axis labels and legends
Pay attention to indicators of statistical significance.
Try to summarize for yourself in words what each figure is showing.
Don’t be overwhelmed by technical language; you may need to look up key terms
Read a press release from 1) a source that you know, 2) a source that you don’t know, and 3) one more of your choice.Press release sources:New York PostLinks to an external site.
C|netLinks to an external site.
ABC NewsLinks to an external site.
The GuardianLinks to an external site.
BBC NewsLinks to an external site.
Science AlertLinks to an external site.
NDTVLinks to an external site.
Submit your answers to the following questions. To earn credit, you must provide specifics from each press release in your responses. Vague answers will not earn credit.Which press releases, from the sources listed above, did you read?
What information was accurate and what was inaccurate?
How were they similar?
How were they different?
If your group were to choose to write a press release, what aspects from the examples would you use (i.e., what would you emulate)?
