Click on the case study to reach the description/assignment.

There will be 5 groups of 3 in our class, each doing one of the following:
Bark Beetles
Ecological Basis for a Vegetarian Diet
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
Salmon as a Keystone Species
and either
Coral Reef Ecosystems or Ocean Acidification

Your group will be questioned & graded by a panel of APES students either Wednesday, February 10th or Thursday the 11th.

You will be responsible for the material in your case studies, much of which is found in chapter 37 and 38 of the text.
