The rich diversity of Australian ecosystems provides a variety of contexts for students to study the relationships between living things and their environment. Students investigate particular sets of biotic and abiotic factors that operate in different places in the biosphere, and how these factors influence the kinds of organisms that live there. Students examine how organisms in their particular habitats are part of the integrated and naturally selfsustaining systems in which energy flows and matter is cycled between the living and nonliving components of the environment.  This unit is delivered in Year 11.
