This slide show presents information about corals, which build carbonate skeletons over many years, forming the beautiful reefs common in tropical seas. Some coral species are sensitive to water temperatures and other environmental factors, and their skeletons can record information on past climate. This slide set discusses the future implications of climate variability through the use of color photos ... Full description.

This site provides background information and a general description of Cyanobacteria, which are both aquatic and photosynthetic. That is, they live in the water and can manufacture their own food. The site explains the importance of these bacteria in the production of oil deposits. More important, however, is the fact that the oxygen atmosphere that we depend on was generated by numerous Cyanobacteria ... Full description.

In this activity, students will use newly acquired knowledge of reading vector images of real-time Coastal Ocean Dynamics Application Radar (CODAR) data to predict the movement of a phytoplankton bloom off the coast of New Jersey. They will discover that plankton, the microscopic plants and animals floating in the ocean, are the base of the complex food webs that support life in the ocean, and for ... Full description.

This lesson plan is designed to help students understand the interrelatedness of food webs and to see how populations of organisms affect each other. Students assume the roles of the various organisms in the ecosystem; the ones that are dependent upon each other are symbolically connected by lengths of yarn. A materials list, instructions, assessment ideas, and educational standards are provided. Full description.

This activity will help students understand that harmful algal blooms (HABs) can negatively impact organisms in a variety of ways, ranging from cell and tissue damage to death. Students will also realize that toxic blooms are caused by algae. The potent toxins produced by these algae can cause massive fish kills, marine mammal deaths, and human illness. Students will participate in a game based on ... Full description.

This site considers the flora and fauna of the northern regions, which are unique because their environments are extreme and finely balanced. It looks at the major factors involved in the biological evolution of circumpolar ecosystems, such as cold temperatures and low precipitation, lack of solar energy during much of the year, a rich marine environment along an extended coastline, constant and ongoing ...

This activity is designed to define the biotic and abiotic characteristics found in a rocky intertidal ecosystem, to observe interactions between select living organisms and between themselves and their environment, and analyze which environmental and competitive factors may influence the particular pattern of density, diversity, or zonation found at a study site. The transect method and statistical ... Full description.
