Food Webs: Ponds

Investigate the food chains and webs of an Australian pond.


Construct hundreds of food chains and webs using up to 30 organisms and then model the populations.


The construction of food chains and webs could not be simpler - just drag your selected organism around the screen and drop it in position.

Predator/Prey relationships (links) require only a click on the prey then a click on the predator.

Investigate the influence of introduced species and biological control.

Teacher controlled report options allow you to control:

  • Direct student feedback - Visual reports and Red arrows indicate incorrect links.
  • No visual reports or red arrows - Reports can be printed at end of exercise. Great for testing.

Model your food webs for up to 2 years

  • Change the web easily during modeling to allow for the introduction of species and a changing ecosystem.
  • Control levels of: Sewage Pollution, Phosphate, Nitrate, Turbidity and Thermal Pollution.
  • Various graph types including biomass pyramid.
  • Data can be saved as text or printed out for later analysis.
  • Food Webs and modeling data can be easily saved.
