Ocean Ecosystem #ecosys #ecosys2

Biotic

All types of Sharks, Whales, Coral, Jellyfish, Squids, Crabs, Starfish, Dolphins, Stingrays, and Sea Turtles are biotic in the ocean.


Abiotic

The avg temperature is 28.5F, Nutrients, and oxygen are abiotic in the ocean.

Limiting Factors

Carrying Capacity

Ocean Limiting Factors

Nitrogen is a limiting factor to the ocean because, the cause of the algae growth.

Food Chains and Food Webs

The largest number of individuals of one species that the environment can support.

The Energy Roles

A factor that limits population size like temperature, light, space, disease.

Trophic Levels and Energy Pyramids

Producer, Consumer, and Decomposer

Photosynthesis

The process by which green plants and some other organisms use sunlight to use foods from carbon dioxide and water. Photosynthesis in plants generally involves the green pigment chlorophyll and generates oxygen as a by product.

Tropisms

  • Tropisms are directional movement responses that occur in response to a directional stimulus. Plants are not able to relocated if they happen to start growing where conditions are suboptimal.

The Roles of Decomposers

Most of the decomposers in the ocean, at every trophic level, can be described as either animals or microbes. Animal decomposers live as scavengers, usually on the sea floor, and microbial decomposers, such as bacteria, can be found on nearly every surface or floating freely in the water. http://www.ask.com/geography/examples-ocean-decomposers-3cd0ebee4372ccd4

A Food Chain is a single pathway connecting a producer with several levels of consumers.

Many food chains interconnected into a network is called a Food Web.

I agree with this because it is all right, and you used good pictures as examples.

I agree with this... because you said the exact factors

you should probably revisit the instructions page. you are missing a lot of information that is supposed to be included.

You aren't done. You still need to go back and check the instructions. For example, you don't include any of the information you are needing for energy roles, nothing about carrying capacity, not enough about limiting factors, trophic levels, food chains/webs, and the energy pyramid you included isn't created by you (which was in the directions).
