There are five main types of ecosystems: Freshwater, Terrestrial, Ocean, Grassland, and the Aquatic Ecosystem. One type of ecosystem out of many is the Freshwater Ecosystem. The freshwater ecosystem is usually small and is on about 1.8% of Earth's surface. The freshwater system supports many speices of life, some of them are fish, amphibians, insects, and plants. The food web in this ecosystem is found in freshwater plankton. The second type of ecosystem of many is the Terrestrial Ecosystem. TheTerrestrial Ecosystem has many diverse biomes, there are seven major ones; Tropical Rain Forrest, Savannas, Deserts, Temprate Grassland, Decidous Forests, Coniferous Forest and, Tundra. The third Ecosystem is the Ocean Ecosystem. The Ocean Ecosystem covers about 75% of Earth's surface. Also about 40% of photosynthesis occurs in the ocean. The fourth ecosystem is the Grassland Ecosystem. Grasslands 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. The main vegetation includes grasses, plants and legumes that belong to the composite family. A lot of grazing animals, insectivores and herbivores inhabit the grasslands. The two main kinds of grasslands ecosystems are Savannas and Prairies. The aquatic ecosystem is the last one I am going to talk about. The Aquatic Ecosystem is 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.


1. Decomposer: The decomposer named phytoplankton is a tiny microscopic plant.

2. Consumer: The consumer in the park is eating the grass.

3. Ecosystem: There are five main types of Ecosystem: Freshwater, Terrestrial, Oceanic, Grassland, and Aquatic.   

4.  Producer: A carrot is a producer because they feed us.

5. Food Chain: An example of a food chain is; carrots, to rabbit, to fox.

6. Biotic: of, relating to, or resulting from living things, especially in their ecological relations

7. Abiotic: physical rather than biological; not derived from living organisms

8. Adaption: the action or process of adapting or being adapted

Abiotic features of wetlands include the climate of the wetlands, water, light, rocks and minerals, soil, and other abiotic factors.Some of the biotic factors are the bull frog, tree frog, and plants.

Energy enters the ecosystem in the form of sunlight. The energy leaves the ecosystem in the form of heat.

The arrows in question 11 represent what is happening. Example: primary consumer eats the producer then the secondary comsumer eats the primary comsumer and so on...

If sunlight doesn't get to the grass then the grass cant grow, then the bunny cant eat, then the bunny dies, then the fow has no food a.k.a. bunny.

The wetlands provide shorelines and then different speices of animals for food. Wetlands function as natural sponges that trap and slowly release surface water, rain, snowmelt, groundwater and flood waters. Trees, root mats, and other wetland vegetation also slow the speed of flood waters and distribute them more slowly over the floodplain.Wetland plants hold the soil in place with their roots, absorb the energy of waves, and break up the flow of stream or river currents. The water provides a habitat for water creatures. The wetlands are the habitat for a lot of endangered animals.
