(critical essay analyzing the event)
The topic can be one only from the following:
1) Energy flow through ecological systems is based upon an abundant and reliable supply of high quality energy. This energy is assimilated by a dispersed network of primary producers and used by all living things to meet their basic needs for survival.
2) Adaptations to ecological conditions result from natural selection on traits that affect the reproductive success of individuals.
3) Hierarchical form of organization of ecological systems.
After choosing one topic:
From the current news media, select an event, situation, trend, problem, process or issue that is relevant or illustrative of some part of the topic that you have chosen. Craft a critical essay analyzing the event. Your mission is to take the ideas associated with energy flow, nutrient cycling, hierarchy or evolution through natural selection and apply them to what is currently the focus of media attention. The media you use can be a recent article in the news. Use a feature or editorial-not a short wire service “note”. Alternatively you can select a recent article from a popular magazine (again a feature article-not “People in the News”) such as one of the weekly news magazines (Newsweek, Time, Business Week. etc.) , or popular science and culture magazines (Natural History, National Geographic, Smithsonian, Scientific American, etc). Please also cite at least three references from the assigned readings or other sources. Please be forcefully critical, strongly supporting or refuting the point of view in the article. Whether you chose attack or support the (poor or lucky) author’s perspective-you must craft an argument based in details that are related to the concepts you feel support your standpoint. Include a copy of the article feature in your essay.
