Investigate the food chains and webs of our most common communities.
Construct hundreds of food chains and webs using up to 45 organisms and then model the populations.
"For biology Newbyte's Food Webs: Ponds is a model of a living ecosystem and a tour de force."
- London Times Educational Supplement - Online, 2005.
Use your own species pictures in the software. Students can replace existing pictures with ones they have taken during their own pond study and even enter their own species into the environment.
Integrate physical data collected about your pond by altering the physical parameters of the environment. The modeling software then works with your own ponds physical data and species.
Additional resources available online - Extra species, pond environments and much more available on the Newbyte website.
Investigate the influence of introduced species and biological control.
Personalise the software by having your school pond as the title or background picture.
Model your food webs for up to 2 years
