Plant & Animal Interdependency. Plant Life in Action[TM]. Schlessinger Science Library. [Videotape].
In every ecosystem, organisms rely on each other in unique relationships that ensure each other's survival. In Plant & Animal Interdependency, find out how plants and animals interact, cooperate and compete. All living things have basic needs and depend on other living things to meet those needs. Discover why the constant exchange of nutrients and gases between plants and animals assures their interdependency. Learn how animals are vital to the reproductive process of many plants and how animals rely on plants for food and shelter. A fun, hands-on experiment explores how plants depend upon animals for pollination and whether or not a flower's color is responsible for reproductive success. This program is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Standards for Life Science: Structure & Function in Living Systems, Reproduction & Heredity, Regulation & Behavior, Populations & Ecosystems and Diversity & Adaptations of Organisms. A teacher's guide is included. (ASK)
