Learning Goal: I'm working on a biology multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn. ◼ Bacteria, protists, and other forms of early life can be very harmful when they get into our food supply. Find a current (within the last two months) food recall or foodborne outbreak due to contamination by one of these living things. With that information, create a “Wanted” poster for the organism that has caused a recent outbreak of contaminated food. (Refer back to Chapter 3: “Food for Thought.”) The poster should include: The name and type of organism Why the organism is dangerous due to the sickness it causes An explanation of the recent outbreak (from a news story or the CDC food safety website) Food safety tips to avoid future contamination Any other relevant, helpful information Download this template to assist you with the assignment. ◼ Discuss the rationale behind taxonomists placing animals in different taxonomic groups. Like a shark and dolphin, platypus and duck, hawk and owl even though they have very similar body form and share other traits as well, they are not in the same class or order. What are the key traits or processes that scientists use in classification? Give an example of separate but similar species and why they separated? ◼ Create a profile for that phylum including the following criteria: Explain the key factors that separate this phylum from others in the animal kingdom Show and explain some of the diversity in the phylum Address the economic impacts, good or bad, of the organisms in the phylum Address the ecosystem benefits, good or bad, of the organisms in the phylum Your profile should be approximately 500 words in length. Use this template and cite your references. ◼ Share an example of a direct species interaction, these interactions include: predator-prey, mimicry, parasitism, commensalism or mutualism. ◼ Get creative and design own cards or use PowerPoint slides or use the template provided below. Include all of the provided information outlined below. The four cards should consist of: One Endangered Species One Threatened Species One Extinct Species (1600s or sooner) One Recovered Species (removed from threatened or endangered species list) For each card/slide should include: Species name Status Distribution Description of actions leading to decline Recovery plan Reference Created by For additional assistance, please use this template.
