This unit attempts to interrelate the traditional biological science studies such as food webs, population changes and ecological succession to form a coherent picture of our world today, the factors that created it and the forces that continue to change it. Designed for use in the secondary schools, it is built around nine films and has seven basic topics: (1) Prehistoric life, the sequence and causes of the changing plant and animal communities; (2) Causes of climatic patterns; (3) Roles of participants in natural communities; (4) Biomes throughout North America; (5) Population; (6) Adaptations; and (7) Man's role in the natural environment. Teaching aid materials include behavioral objectives of the unit, a suggested time line, suggested methodologies, an annotated list of the nine films and suggested evaluative instruments. (MLB)
