  Perhaps a case study might center on turning forest land into
agriculture.  Or, one could choose a local case such as a wetland to
agriculture or wetland to development and look at the impact of plants
lost and new plants that would arrive, how, what water requirements would
be, light, temperature, etc.  What effect would the lights of the mall
have on photoperiod responses?  How would the new plants arrive?  What
would hold the water that was once in the wetland?  How did those lost
plants affect the ecosystem?  If there is local development, students
might really get into looking at the impact and projecting what new plants
will arrive.
