BIO 280 Wk 2 Discussion: Ecosystem Management


Post a total of 3 substantive responses over 2 separate days for full participation. This includes your initial post and 2 replies to other students.

Due Thursday

Respond to the ONE of the questions below with a minimum of 175 words. This response must be in your own original words and should also include one properly cited and referenced passage from a relevant source.

In Week Two we get an overview of ecosystem diversity and degradation, as well as the economics of resource management.    Consider the reading and activities that you have completed this week.

1) In the region where you live, which types of ecosystems have experienced the worst degradation and loss? What steps could be taken to restore them?

2) In the region where you live, how would you describe communally-owned resources that are vulnerable due to their overuse? What specific management strategies protect these resources while maintaining human enterprise? What actions do you recommend to improve this balance? Explain.

3) Please read, summarize and discuss the story in the link provided which illustrates how biotic and abiotic factors are interrelated. Also, discuss another example (beside the one in the story) you can find in which the endangerment of a large predator will impact other species and the ecosystem.


4) Often, the costs of biodiversity maintenance fall on poor, rural people living near a contested ecosystem. What is an example of this dynamic? What are two creative mechanisms for sharing the benefits and costs of maintaining biodiversity more equitably?

Extra participation opportunity:

I saw this really interesting story on a few days ago about generating energy from food waste, and thought some of you might be interested in reviewing and discussing it for participation credit.

Due Monday

Reply to at least two (2) of your classmates with relevant responses of at least 100 words. Each of these responses should add to the information provided by your classmate by either providing your personal experience or providing additional information and/or a new perspective. Cited/referenced material is not required, but should be added when applicable to support your relevant talking points.  Always be constructive and professional in your responses.

Please note:  A response that has been found to be cut/pasted from the text, an outside source or another classmate will be considered plagiarism, which is a serious form of academic dishonesty. Any student found to be plagiarizing will be reported to the University immediately.
