Energy Flow in Communities Bottle Biology

Bottle Biology Spotlight

The Bottle system that has been designed to accompany Session 7 – Energy Flow in Communities – and Session 8 – Material Cycles in Ecosystems – is called the “EcoColumn.” In this system, an aquatic and terrestrial community are linked together in one bottle system. The organisms within include producers, consumers, and decomposers. What food chains exist within this community? How does energy flow? Check out Bottle Biology Spotlights to track the progress of our very own Essential Science for Teachers systems.
