Organisms and environments. The student knows that there are relationships, systems, and cycles within environments. The student is expected to:
- (1) observe the way organisms live and survive in their
ecosystem by interacting with the living and nonliving components;
- (A) describe the flow of energy within a food web, including the roles of the Sun, producers, consumers, and decomposers;
- (B) predict the effects of changes in ecosystems caused by living organisms, including humans, such as the overpopulation of grazers or the building of highways; and
- (C) identify fossils as evidence of past living organisms and the nature of the environments at the time using models.
