The Field Approach to Coastal Ecology, Fall Unit.
This publication is designed for use as part of a curriculum series developed by the Regional Marine Science Project. Coastal environments are utilized to demonstrate basic principles of ecology to tenth grade students with emphasis placed on salt marshes in this first unit for the fall season. (Unit 2 is for spring season.) Material presented in the informative text covers the scope of ecology, coastal and inland ecosystems, factors limiting survival and distribution, chemical cycles, photosynthesis, respiration, and food cycles. Coastal ecology lab exercises acquaint the student with a variety of organisms commonly found in the tidal salt marsh and give practice in collecting, analyzing, and presenting data in a scientific and orderly manner. Numerous line drawings, diagrams, and data recording sheets supplement the narrative material. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (BL)
