Interpret a range of scientific and media texts, and evaluate processes, claims and conclusions by considering the quality of available evidence; and use reasoning to construct scientific arguments (ACSBL005, ACSBL034, ACSBL065, ACSBL100)

Select, construct and use appropriate representations, including classification keys, food webs and biomass pyramids, to communicate conceptual understanding, solve problems and make predictions (ACSBL006, ACSBL035, ACSBL066, ACSBL101)

Communicate to specific audiences and for specific purposes using appropriate language, nomenclature, genres and modes, including scientific reports (ACSBL007, ACSBL036, ACSBL067, ACSBL102)

Science as a Human Endeavour (Units 1 and 2)

Science is a global enterprise that relies on clear communication, international conventions, peer review and reproducibility (ACSBL008, ACSBL037)

Development of complex models and/or theories often requires a wide range of evidence from multiple individuals and across disciplines (ACSBL009, ACSBL038)

Advances in science understanding in one field can influence other areas of science, technology and engineering (ACSBL010, ACSBL039)

The use of scientific knowledge is influenced by social, economic, cultural and ethical considerations (ACSBL011, ACSBL040)

The use of scientific knowledge may have beneficial and/or harmful and/or unintended consequences (ACSBL012, ACSBL041)

Scientific knowledge can enable scientists to offer valid explanations and make reliable predictions (ACSBL013, ACSBL042)

Scientific knowledge can be used to develop and evaluate projected economic, social and environmental impacts and to design action for sustainability (ACSBL014, ACSBL043)

ICT and other technologies have dramatically increased the size, accuracy and geographic and temporal scope of data sets with which scientists work (ACSBL068, ACSBL103)

Models and theories are contested and refined or replaced when new evidence challenges them, or when a new model or theory has greater explanatory power (ACSBL069, ACSBL104)

The acceptance of scientific knowledge can be influenced by the social, economic and cultural context in which it is considered (ACSBL070, ACSBL105)

People can use scientific knowledge to inform the monitoring, assessment and evaluation of risk (ACSBL071, ACSBL106)

Science Understanding

Ecosystems are diverse, composed of varied habitats and can be described in terms of their component species, species interactions and the abiotic factors that make up the environment (ACSBL019)

Relationships and interactions between species in ecosystems include predation, competition, symbiosis and disease (ACSBL020)

Keystone species play a critical role in maintaining the structure of the community; the impact of a reduction in numbers or the disappearance of keystone species on an ecosystem is greater than would be expected based on their relative abundance or total biomass (ACSBL024) 

Ecosystems have carrying capacities that limit the number of organisms (within populations) they support, and can be impacted by changes to abiotic and biotic factors, including climatic events (ACSBL025) 

Models of ecosystem interactions (for example, food webs, successional models) can be used to predict the impact of change and are based on interpretation of and extrapolation from sample data (for example, data derived from ecosystem surveying techniques); the reliability of the model is determined by the representativeness of the sampling (ACSBL029)

Natural selection occurs when selection pressures in the environment confer a selective advantage on a specific phenotype to enhance its survival and reproduction; this results in changes in allele frequency in the gene pool of a population (ACSBL090) 

In additional to environmental selection pressures, mutation, gene flow and genetic drift can contribute to changes in allele frequency in a population gene pool and results in micro-evolutionary change (ACSBL091) 

Mutation is the ultimate source of genetic variation as it introduces new alleles into a population (ACSBL092)

Speciation and macro-evolutionary changes result from an accumulation of micro-evolutionary changes over time (ACSBL093)

Differing selection pressures between geographically isolated populations may lead to allopatric speciation (ACSBL094)

Populations with reduced genetic diversity face increased risk of extinction (ACSBL095)

Transmission of heritable characteristics from one generation to the next involves DNA and genes (ACSSU184)

The theory of evolution by natural selection explains the diversity of living things and is supported by a range of scientific evidence (ACSSU185)
