Concept 6: Stability in an ecosystem is a balance between competing effects. As a basis for understanding this concept:
Standard a: Students know biodiversity is the sum total of different kinds of organisms and is affected by alterations of habitats.
Standard b: Students know how to analyze changes in an ecosystem resulting from changes in climate, human activity, introduction of nonnative species, or changes in population size.
Standard e: Students know a vital part of an ecosystem is the stability of its producers and decomposers.
Standard f: Students know at each link in a food web some energy is stored in newly made structures but much energy is dissipated into the environment as heat. This dissipation may be represented in an energy pyramid.
