HUMAN BIOLOGY PAGES

This is the page where you will find the weekly learning objectives for our A2 Human Biology Lessons.

Learning objectives for Friday 03/05/2013
Peterborough%20Brownfield%20for%20web%20(c)%20Greg%20Hitchcock

Today we are going to cover the following points from the specification:

3.5.4 Human activities can damage ecosystems and create new ones.

  • Ecosystems range in size from the very small to the very large.
  • Increasing area by a factor of ten approximately doubles the number of species present.
  • Larger sites are important in enhancing biodiversity in the urban environment.
  • Corridor habitats are important because they are common in the built environment and allow for the movement of plants and animals between habitats.
  • Candidates should be able to describe one example of the habitats on wasteland and brownfield sites.

Look at what you need to be able to do highlighted in bold above.

What I would like you to do before the lesson is find me an example of a habitat on a wasteland and an example of a brownfield site with a comment on its importance for the biodiversity of a named area.

Here is an example of a brownfield site with plenty of description of why it is important. This is one of the first results on a quick google search so this shouldn’t take you too much effort. If you could communicate with each other to ensure that you all pick a different example then that would give us a good starting point for the lesson.

Here are some exam questions that we will use in the lesson. One of them is related to brownfield sites: Studying ecosystems questions

Any questions then, as ever, please email or leave a comment on here.
