Yeah, tundra is the more precise term. Here's a question - did anyone receive questions on alpine tundra? I looked very in depth into it but never saw anything.

The booklet for nats reads:

"Ecology (C)
Teams will work at stations that display a variety of earth-science materials and related earth-science questions. (Earth's Fresh Waters)"

o_O Fresh waters? What's up with that?

I think that they should have written Dynamic Planet instead.

Our division B test was very . . . short. This was the first Ecology test that I have ever been able to complete on time, and we finished in around 20 minutes. Of course, we spent the rest of the time checking our answers and adding "creativity" to our food webs :lol:

Isn't Ecology going to be on Estuaries this next year? I thought that is what I heard...

Really, Ecology is being tentatively replaced by Water Quality. WQ is usually a four-way mixture of estuarine ecology, macroinvertebrate identification, the build of a salinometer and water remediation. So yes, ecology is being molded into a new event that does keep some old aspects but adds in new flavors.
