    For anyone doing the 25 markers for ecosystems look at the nutrient cycle, i think it could be the source (gersmehl's diagram) hasnt been up yet (7marks)
    Structure of an ecosystem (8marks)
    Something on tropical biome (10marks)

    This is what im thinking, someone else please give an opinion?
    i reckon it could be a 10 marker on sustainability in ecosystems. also , gersmehl's is the thing with the circles right?

    Would anyone be able to post a link to some decent notes or explain "economic development and change related to urbanisation (world cities)? All I can find on the Internet is copies of the mark scheme for 2013 which isn't proving much help.
    Don't have much time to explain (sorry!) but I did ask my teacher about this one, her answer was along the lines of increased development = increased urbanisation up to a point, where there's counter urbanisation and urbanisation actually decreases. You could mention Rostow's theory of the 5 stages of development (not on the spec, google it though- it's v. simple) and use examples (I went for Nepal, Laos, Thailand, Brazil, UK). talk about how people go to cities for perceived better quality of life, job opportunities, and how that means they get a better QoL (& more development), then attracts more people & more investment (so the urbanisation-development sequence becomes self-perpetuating). Not sure if that helps, but if a similar question comes up (here's hoping it doesn't), that's what I'll be putting!
    Best of luck!

    Also can some one explain what this part of the specification means
    The relationships between human activity, biodiversity and sustainability
    I have no idea and cannot remember my teachers teaching this!!

    I think this includes things like Agriculture and forests, like, agriculture reduces biodiversity because you use pesticides and allow one crop to dominate and deforestation reduces biodiversity. Sustainability is letting something last from generation to generation so things like deforestation aren't sustainable.

    An example of the case study I think we did was Conkers in the national forest, it's an area where trees were planted and a park was created that provided a habitat for animals, and jobs for people in managing this environment. It educates the public on sustainability through classes and improves biodiversity due to the planting of millions of trees attracting wildlife like woodpeckers

    not exactly what it is but just from memory

    If this helps anyone here's a summary of all the past 40 markers for Ecosystems and Global Tectonics

    June 2010 - Ecosystems of the British isles
    Jan 2011 - Fragile environments
    June 2011 - Maintaining biodiversity vs. achieving reasonable living standards
    Jan 2012 - Tropical biomes
    June 2012 - Ecosystems of the British Isles
    Jan 2013 - Fragile environments
    June 2013 - Human impacts on local ecosystems
    June 2014 - Ecosystems of the British Isles
    June 2015 - Protect the environment despite economic uncertainty (same as June 2011 topic whatever that is)

    June 2010 - Volcanic + Earthquake Hazards impact the poorest the most
    Jan 2011 - Plate tectonic theory
    June 2011 - Impact of Earthquake hazards depends on human factors
    Jan 2012 - Preparedness + planning with Volcanic Hazards
    June 2012 - Plate tectonic theory
    Jan 2013 - Natural disaster aren't natural, but are in fact human disaster (same topic as June 2010)
    June 2013 - Factors causing differences in Volcanic Hazards
    June 2014 - Reducing the impact of Earthquake Hazards
    June 2015 - Prediction, planning and prevention

    For ecosystems I'd say Tropical Biomes is very likely, and next most likely is Fragile Environments
    For global tectonics, very likely plate tectonic theory

    The ecoysystems 40 marker last year was based on fragile environments tho so unlikely it will be the 40 this year??(in the markscheme it talks about fraile environments)

    Retail, planning&management. Why urban processes? What's that?
