SCI 207 WEEK 3 LAB 3 BIODIVERSITY – NEW
Lab 3 – Experiment 1: Interdependence of Species
Table 1: Interdependence of Species Results
Species Missing (Bead Color and Name)
Hypothesis: If trees were not part of the ecosystem, then there would be a lack of food for the bees.
1. Restate your hypothesis. Was it confirmed or denied? How do you know?
If trees were not part of the ecosystem, then there would be a lack of food for bees. It was confirmed because of the chart that showed each part of the ecosystem and how it affected other parts of the ecosystem.
1. Indicate which species was removed during each round of the experiment.
Flowers were removed the first round, bees in the second round, trees in the third round, and humans in the last round.
1. Explain how the ecosystem was affected by the missing species for each round of the experiment.
