Interactions And Ecosystems major Assignment

Due: October 25, 2013
For an outline of the assignment and the Rubric, go to:

"Interactions and Ecosystems" -Link (last entry)

Currently, textbooks from Canada use a system of six kingdoms (Animalia,
Plantae, Fungi, Protista, Archaea, and Bacteria).

You can choose your organism from any of the above.

I will be posting some links on (Organism Assignment Links) over the next few
days to help you in your research.


Your assignment should introduce the organism, using the 
"Classification of Living Things" guide

Let's consider the "Red Wolf" as a Sample::


Kingdom:     Animalia
Phylum:      Chordata
Class:       Mammalia
Order:       Carnivora     
Family:      Canidae
Genus:       Canis
Species:     canis rufus

Geographic distribution: (May include a Map)


The red wolf stands about 65–80cm at the shoulder. The total length is 110–165
cm, including the tail of 30–40 cm. The body mass can range from 15 to 40 kg

Adaptations:  For their survival, organisms have developed a number of
adaptations to meet the challenges to survive. Research how your organism use

For Example: A polar Bear is White as its habitat is Arctic Ice. 
         camouflage for hunting seal and walrus, its main prey.


Dietary Habits: 
(Prey and Predators) 
- use a Food Web and Food Chain


Conservation: (endangered???)


Good Luck
