Reviewing biome notes

Today we reviewed the remainder of the biome notes (see class notes) .  we will have a quiz next day on the questions assigned in the text and the notes reviewed up to now.  The quiz will include everything except the section on evolution which we didn't have time to go over.

We went over predator and prey interactions, the difference between predator and prey skulls in with respect to their eyes and teeth and observed the adaptations of a hunting owl

Listen to this excerpt about an amur tiger   a predator adapted to a strange connection between the boreal forest and the tropics.  A documentary showing this huge tiger.  And meet ninja cat, evidence that even domestic felines have similar instincts.
