Ecology B/C

Discussion for Ecology B/C.
Ecology Wiki
2010 Thread
-The path of the Administrator is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

Only that for regional and state competitions, general ecology questions should be mainly on local/regional ecology.

We were never allowed a binder to my knowledge.
And also, how does that work with the local thingy? We should focus on "local" taiga and tundra, or ignore them until nationals.

The general ecology part of the event should be local, not the biome part.

Got it. That makes much more sense, because only Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, Minnesota, and Alaska would really stand a chance!

We were allowed a notes sheet, though. Are we allowed that this year?

Somebody please explain the local aspect to the Regional and State tests. I do not understand it. Do we need to learn about our native biomes?

My interpretation of that rule is simply that they want event writers to stick to local and regional examples when they write questions about general principles - i.e., if they are writing a carrying capacity question, they should use deer instead of tigers. That's only my interpretation, though, and in the end the event writers will pretty much do whatever they want.
