Ecology of a body of water
Annual variations in the ecology of a body of water

Ecology is a branch of science concerned with the interrelationship of organisms and their environments. In a body of water such as a pond, lake, river or even a small bucket of water left in the nature for a long time, you can find hundreds of living organisms. The type and the amount of such organisms is affected by the season and long term weather conditions. 
 Project description: 
In this project you will make observation and record data about organisms living in a body of water. You select the place and report its ecology for a period of one year or at least 5 months so you can see the effects of changes in seasons and weather. Your report may cover variation of species, population and other life conditions of the organisms that you choose to focus on.
