    A past question on ecosystems was, "describe and explain two changes that have taken place in urban ecosystems.(8 marks)" How would you answer this? I haven't got a clue
    introduction of non native species (oxford ragwart, Japanese not weed) changes in gardens and parks

    changes to the rural urban fringe will be different

    NEED HELP WITH LOCAL SCALE ECOSYSTEMS!!! :O (excluding conservation area)

    what you write for "Discuss changes in the rural urban fringe"

    Would changes to urban areas be the same as changes resulting from urbanisation?
    - Include introduction of new species(planned and unplanned) and the colonisation of wasteland(succession)-?

    "Changes in the rural urban fringe" >> I have no idea what to write for this

    any help please

    What would you write for discuss:
    "Trade v Aid" .... ?????
    would you basically discuss the benefits and negatives of both including examples of different scales then come to a conclusion about which is better?

    How would people structure this?

    In the development and globalisation section, if the 40 marker was on global social and economic groupings the main emphasis has to be on the EU, but can we mention NAFTA and ASEAN etc?

    Whats everyones prediciton on the 40 marker for the globalisation topic? Highly unlikely for it to be trade and aid as it came up on jan 2013, but then again who knows?

    i personally think sustainabilty in development or global social and economic groupings
    For a 40 marker, it would be best to of course have a detailed case study but to also drop in a few other groupings to show the variety of reasons as to why they group e.g. NAFTA was formed in competition to the EU and the variety impacts of the groupings e.g. BRICS urmmmmmm, such diversity in their political systems and so potential problem?

    My teacher thinks Tourism - myth or reality is a likely one because it hasnt come up for a long while,
    global social and economic groupings sounds more like a 15 marker, not so much a 40 marker - would be great if it does come up though.

    a rural urban fringe is the area surrounding and urban development. over recent years there has been significant changes. The increase in population has put pressure to build new housing developments. for instance, the old sarum housing development has increased the number of homes by 640. previously, the site was home to the surrounding land of old sarum castle and agriculture; such as wheat plantations. this was generally considered to be a green belt location.
    similarly, there has been an increase in vandalism in the rural-urban fringe. fly tipping is a major issue, and cots the government thousands each year to remove the waste. similar problems include tresspassing and poaching of fish in rivers within the rural urban fringe - something that is prohibited by the environment agency.
    yet, it is clear the rural urban fringe is being used in a sustainable manner - parks, gardens and wildlife reserves are developed to preserve the degraded land. it increases biodiversity and allows for nesting sites of rare birds such as the barn owl. similarly, wildlife sites such as Moors Valley in the south of england brings economy into the local area each year by tourists.

    hope this helps
