Students will analyze the data to see the effect of the loss and reintroduction of apex predator. Students will develop a model that shows how energy flows from different parts of Yellowstone National Park and the African Savanna in a food web. Students will construct an explanation for the patterns seen in interactions between animals in an ecosystem can change depending on populations and how people can play a role in these interactions.

Food chains intertwine locally into a food web because most organisms consume more than one type of animal or plant. For example, the grass gets eaten by a zebra, which is eaten by a lion.
