Define the Problem
You have explored and gathered so much information about the longleaf pine ecosystem and the species that live in this forest. You have also learned about:
- The history of the longleaf pine;
- The longleaf habitat types and what plant and animal species live in those habitats;
- The role that fire and the regeneration cycle plays in the longleaf pine ecosystem;
- Some of the pressures and disruptions affecting the longleaf ecosystem.
The next step is to identify the problems facing the species you chose to focus on, and define one problem that you can address.
