Tracing the cycling of matter (e.g. carbon compounds, nitrogen compounds) within the organisms of a food web from its source through its transformation in cellular, biochemical processes (e.g., cells, organs, organisms, communities).

Energy enters an ecosystem in the form of sunlight and flows through the system to each cell. Matter interacts, changes and recycles in an ecosystem. Populations of organisms survive by maintaining interdependent relationships with one another and by utilizing biotic and abiotic resources from the environment.
Students demonstrate their understanding of Food Webs in an Ecosystem by
