Ch 34: Praxis Biology & General Science: Conservation

About This Chapter

Let this chapter teach you about conservation. The video lessons and self-assessment quizzes in this chapter can help you answer questions about ecology on the Praxis II: Biology and General Science test.

Conservation - Chapter Summary

Learn about foundations and projects dedicated to conservation, as well as goals of conservation, through this series of brief video lessons. This online chapter also looks at benefits and issues of the green revolution, a period when new advances in agriculture led to dramatically increased productivity on a global level. You'll learn about high-yield crops and the process of multiple cropping. You'll then explore principles of conservation biology.

Another lesson in this chapter, which can help you prepare for the Praxis II: Biology and General Science test, covers criteria used to evaluate the health of an ecosystem and, thus, deem if it needs to be protected. You'll also learn about the three most endangered ecosystems in the United States.

Conservation Objectives

In addition to meeting education and practicum requirements, you'll likely need to pass the Praxis II if you want to work as a public high school teacher. The Praxis II: Biology and General Science test is comprised of 120 multiple-choice questions, which you must complete in two hours. Around 13% of the questions on this test center on ecology, a content category that could feature questions on conservation.

Our team of professional educators developed this course on conservation to help you study for the Praxis II. Along with our short but comprehensive video lessons, a transcript and self-assessment quiz round out each lesson. The quizzes are presented in multiple-choice format, making them similar to questions you'll see on the Praxis II.
