Food Web (screen)

Food Web (screen)

If the user backs up to the Individual Pond Screen or upon entering the Pond Screen, chooses "What lives in this pond?" instead of "How healthy is this pond?," they will arrive at the foodweb screen.

This screen displays a cross section of a pond with different ecological groups presented as buttons. Here the visitor can either randomly browse the members of each group by repeatedly clicking on a group button, or they can explore the different food web relationships in the pond by clicking on either the "What eats me?" or the "What do I eat?" buttons.

Different creatures are displayed either as still pictures or as animation's and are accompanied with text descriptions.
