Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper about the ecosystems you have chosen and the species that make up these ecosystems. In your paper, include the following items:

• Describe your pair of ecosystems and the types of current or proposed exploitation in one or both ecosystems. Explain the past, present, and potential future consequences of overexploitation in these ecosystems. Describe the potential costs and benefits of at least two exploitation activities.

• Explain current and potential management of your ecosystems. How can modification, cultivation, or restoration alter these ecosystems? Outline at least two potential management plans beyond cessation of exploitation, and describe the costs and benefits of each.

• Prioritize conservation efforts in your pair of ecosystems based on values and the principles of conservation biology by including the following elements:

o Prioritize species and ecosystems for protection based on the values identified in the Acting Locally Paper – Part One.

o Describe a regional or global threat to your ecosystems, such as global climate change, and outline a plan to combat this threat.

o Rank the priorities of continuing or ceasing exploitation activities, of alternative management plans, and of the plan to combat the regional or global threat to biodiversity.

o Defend your prioritization based on specific values and on your plan’s overall effect on biodiversity, ecological integrity, and economic feasibility.

• Identify at least two specific practical actions and at least two specific political actions you can take to support the top priorities you have identified for the pair of ecosystems. Interpret how these specific actions can support conservation and biodiversity.

Cite at least four references.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

Resources: Ch. 6–10 of Fundamentals of Conservation Biology, the Internet, and the University Library

Prepare a 10- to 15-slide Microsoft®PowerPoint® presentation of vital information on the endangered species your Learning Team selected in Week Two.

Include the following elements in your presentation:

• Describe your endangered species and include images or charts illustrating the species and its peril. Explain why this species is endangered and what extinction threats it faces.

• Describe invasive species and explain the role of invasive exotics in threatening your endangered species.

• Describe at least one prehistoric mass extinction event and at least one historical extinction with parallels to the extinction threats facing your species. Compare the past extinctions with the current extinction threat facing this endangered species. In your comparison, address discrepancies between rates of extinction, estimated population sizes and geographic distribution before extinction, and probable causes of extinction for the current threat and past extinction events.

Cite at least five references, including at least two scholarly sources.

Format your references slide consistent with APA guidelines.

Choose a pair of related aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems to research. Your choices must meet the following criteria:

• The aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems must be closely associated: for example, a fen (aquatic) in an alpine meadow or forest (terrestrial), an islet (terrestrial) in a marine bay (aquatic), or a river system (aquatic) in a desert (terrestrial) would be appropriate.

• At least one endangered species, as identified in the IUCN Red List or by a government wildlife or natural resource agency, must be present in one or both of the ecosystems.

• The pair of ecosystems must be in your local region or in an area of personal significance.

Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper about the ecosystems you have chosen and the species that make up these ecosystems. Include the following items:

• Identify and describe the pair of ecosystems.

• Describe three species in each of your ecosystems, including at least one plant and one animal from each. Evaluate each of these species based on its intrinsic value, its instrumental value, and its uniqueness value. Include at least one endangered species in this description and analysis.

• Summarize how the components of your ecosystems interact with one another, and explain the value of each ecosystem in terms of its components. Describe how ecosystem diversity and species diversity are related, and how each ecosystem relates to the landscape.

Cite at least three references.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
