Stage 6: Biological Diversity

Overview

Biodiversity is important to balance the Earth’s ecosystems. Students will learn about the Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection, evidence for evolution and the effect of various selective pressures, focusing on species observed by Charles Darwin.  In this workshop, students investigate different types of adaptations and the relationships between organisms in terms of specialisation, using a range of interesting Australian and exotic species as examples.
