Types of ecosystems

rainforest ecosystem

The rainforest ecosystem has a large variation of animals and a very basic humid climate.

desert ecosystem

deserty ecosystems are located in regions that receive an annual rainfall less than 25. They occupy about 17 percent of all the land on our planet. Due to the extremely high temperature, low water availability and intense sunlight, fauna and flora are scarce and poorly developed.

Grassland ecosystem

Grassland ecosystems are located in both the tropical and temperate regions of the world though the ecosystems vary slightly. The area mainly comprises grasses with a little number of trees and shrubs.

Aquatic ecosystem

The Aquatic ecosystem is the ecosystem found in a body of water. It encompasses aquatic flora, fauna and water properties, as well. There are two main types of aquatic ecosystem - Marine and Freshwater.

Mountain land ecosystem

Mountain land ecosystems provides a scattered and diverse array of habitats where a large number of animals and plants can be found. At the higher altitudes, the harsh environmental conditions normally prevail, and only the treeless alpine vegetation can survive.

decomposer: The fungus is a decomposer that breaks down dead organisms to use as nutrients.

Composer:A human is a consumer it eats other organisms for energy.

Ecosystem: The snake lives in a tropical rain forest ecosystem because there are many things to eat.

Producer: The omnivore ate the green producer and got energy the plant had.

Biotic: Loncoln used to be biotic until he got shot.

Abiotic: Gas is an abiotic because it is not alive, but it is part of an ecosystem.

Adaption: The person adapted to the weather by putting on a coat.
