Central Question: Why do mountains require such high levels of specialization for species?
Guiding Thought Question: Find an example of a species that lives at high elevation (that has not already been discussed in class) and explain why it is so well adapted to mountain living.
Today's Learning Objective: Students will be looking at the uniqueness of Mountain ecoregions and the species who have specialized to those particular regions by examining species who have adapted, and designing a tour of mountain ecoregions and explaining why they require such specialization.
