Content description
Interactions between organisms can be described in terms of food chains and food webs; human activity can affect these interactions
  1. using food chains to show feeding relationships in a habitat
  2. constructing and interpreting food webs to show relationships between organisms in an environment
  3. classifying organisms of an environment according to their position in a food chain
  4. recognising the role of microorganisms within food chains and food webs
  5. investigating the effect of human activity on local habitats, such as deforestation, agriculture or the introduction of new species
  6. exploring how living things can cause changes to their environment and impact other living things, such as the effect of cane toads
  7. researching specific examples of human activity, such as the use of fire by traditional Aboriginal people and the effects of palm oil harvesting in Sumatra and Borneo
