My class’s latest project involved a case study in trophic cascades. My group was given sea otters as a topic to study. This slide show accompanied our talk regarding the important role sea otters play in near shore marine ecosystems, and the effect their predation of echinoderms has. Also covered are the effects of a declining population, as well as effects climate change is having on their population. This was a group effort, so there may be slight variations in style across the slides.
