Inquiry Question


  • Investigate and determine relationships between biotic and abiotic factors in an ecosystem, including:
    • The impact of abiotic factors
    • The impact of biotic factors, including predation, competition and symbiotic relationships
    • The ecological niches occupied by species
    • Predicting consequences for populations in ecosystems due to predation, competition, symbiosis and disease
    • Measuring populations of organisms using sampling techniques
  • Explain a recent extinction event
