I’m studying and need help with a Ecology question to help me learn.
Create at least a 700-word pamphlet, using the attached template, to inform the public regarding the ecosystem and finches of the Galapagos Island.
Describe the research conducted by Peter and Rosemary Grant in Ch. 5 of Elements of Ecology.
Respond to the following in your pamphlet:
- What makes the ecosystem of the Galapagos Island different than those found on large continentals?
- Upon what did Charles Darwin’s original research on finches of the Galapagos Island focus?
- Describe the research Peter and Rosemary Grant conducted on the finches in the 1970’s.
- Discuss the relationship between the finches’ beak depth size and survival in terms of natural selection and fitness and the environmental causes that shaped the finch population of the islands.
Include the following in your pamphlet:
- Appropriate pictures, diagrams, and graphics that illustrate your explanations
- Appropriately cited references
