Year 11 Biology
Long Reef Rock Platform, Collaroy
Students will examine the distribution and abundance of tidal rockshelf animals using quadrats and study zonation using a transect.
Abiotic components such as pH, temperature and salinity will be measured and human impact will be discussed. Relationships between organsims will be studied and a species list will be generated.
A producer and a consumer organism will be identified using a key and studied in detail to observe their structural features and adaptations.
Botany Bay, Towra Point
Students study in detail three main components of this habitat – Mangroves, Salt Marsh and Sand Dunes. Chemical and physical tests allow students to detail the differences in these environments.
A plant transect study shows the progression and change of dominate plant species. The mangrove is a very unique organism, students learn of its adaptations and characteristics first hand.
Quadrats are used to measure distribution and abundance of animals with the mangrove forest. A seagrass animal catch gives students the opportunity to capture and study the local marine life. Relationships between organsims will be studied and a species list will be generated.
Camp Kedron, Ingleside
Bantry Bay, Forestville
Camp Coutts, Waterfall
Students will compare two plant communities by measuring abiotic factors such as temperature, soil moisture, soil depth, pH and aspect. Quadrats will be used to measure distribution and abundance of trees.
A native plant and an animal will be studied in detail to observe their structural features and adaptations.
Students will observe and identify relationships between organisms studied throughout the day. Human impacts in this ecosystem will be observed and discussed.
Mt Keira, Wollongong
Students will focus on the rainforest community but will superficially compare it to the adjacent sclerophyll forest by observing the vegetation. In the rainforest students will measure abiotic factors such as soil moisture and soil pH. Quadrats will be used to measure distribution and abundance of rainforest trees.
A plant and an animal will be identified and studied in detail to observe their structural features and adaptations.
Relationships between organisms will be studied and human impacts on the rainforest will be observed and discussed.
