Each brief video features an interactive exercise based on Academy research!
In addition to showcasing live footage from a unique ecosystem, each of the three videos in the Exploring Ecosystems series features an opportunity for students to actively participate in a problem-solving scenario based on an ongoing research project of an Academy scientist.
As you watch the video, be prepared to pause at key points to participate fully!
The Coral Reef Symbiosis video investigates the following questions:
- How do species interact on a coral reef?
- What are the effects of abiotic and biotic interactions?
- How do these interactions influence patterns of distribution and abundance within this ecosystem as a whole?
