Just for anyone who needs it, EPA website will be good for this event, as a whole section is devoted to environmental issues and the EPA has tons of resources about it. Remember to check the sources for which the website got the info so you can check out those websites too.

I'm sad that Water Quality is gone, but I have a feeling this event will make up for it :D

The rules state that we should know about "community interactions." Does this include symbiotic relationships (e.g. commensalism, mutualism and parisitism)?

Yes, I believe that's what is meant by community interactions.

Ok, thanks. Just thought I'd make sure before I did/didn't put it on my notes

Are the indicator species listed on the event parameters similar to the ones in Water Quality? Where should we go to study these? Thanks :D

As far as the subjects go, if the focus this year is mostly going to be aquatic and atmospheric (water and air) issues, does that mean there won't be anything on waste management, terrestrial ecology, or energy? It seems like when you get into the nitty gritty of environmental science, everything's kinda all related and tied back to one another so it seems strange that it's so divided. Any thoughts?

I think it's a good idea to study the Water Quality indicator species from the past few years, because it's a likely source proctors will go to on the aquatic side. For air indicator species, a quick google search will bring some up, such as lichen.

I agree, everything is interconnected. But I also think it's a good thing that they narrowed the event somewhat, otherwise it would cover too much to be a practical event. I like that they split it, because it allows us to go more in depth each year, rather than be bombarded with tons of information year 1, and then have less to study in the second year. There shouldn't be anything over waste management, terrestrial ecology, or energy except possibly as it relates to aquatic and atmospheric issues. For instance, deforestation is technically terrestrial, but it causes major water quality issues (increased soil erosion, increased runoff, decreased dissolved oxygen, etc.), so that part of it would be topical, but other effects unrelated to air and water wouldn't be asked about.
