foodweb

Description

Construct hundreds of simple or complex food chains and webs using up to 30 available organisms. Food Webs: Australian Woodlands is ideal for use with both junior and senior science students.

Features
Investigate the influence of introduced species by adding them to a native food web.
The construction of food chains and webs could not be simpler - just drag your selected organism around the screen and drop it in position.
Predator/Prey relationships (links) require only a double click on the prey then a double click on the predator.
Teacher controlled report options allows you to control:
  • Direct student feedback - Visual reports and Red arrows indicate incorrect links.
  • No visual reports or red arrows - Reports can be printed at end of exercise. Great for testing.

Model simple food chains over 25 years, to investigate predator/prey relationships, using the Predator/Prey model system.
Full Web Modeling
