Biotic and Abiotic about my pictures
BIOTIC- birds: parrots, toucans, eagles ,bird standing on a TREE: Genhis tree, PLANTS: orchirds ,bromeliads, flowers: passion flower
ABIOTIC- SUN shining on the waterfall, huge waterfall, rocks, leaves, dirt
carring capacity is ...
- The limit of individual organisms of a species that a habitat can support
what it needs to survive
- what it needs to survive is food, water shelter and space
changes over time
- the population could change over time . lets talk about birds, the population in birds could start with a little of them then a year later it could go up.
- resources that limit the growth, abundance, or distrubtion of an organism or a population of organisms in an ecosystem
- ex: pollution, disease, tropic stroms, etc
they can also affect predators diseases can kill most of the predators.
the snake died from diseases.
- producers, make their own food some in my ecosystem are- tall emergent trees, shrubs and vines. they get their energy from the sun
- consumers,can't make their own food so they get their energy from producers
types of consumers
- 1) herbivores, eat plants-crickets, deer, frogs
- 2) carnivores, eat meat- cheetas
- 3) omnivore, eat plant and animals- deer
- 4) scavenger, eats dead animals - eagle, bird
food webs and food chains
- for my ecosystem food webs are more realistic than food chains because, when you have a food chain thats just one food chain and it cant be really realistic but when you have a food web you can see all of the animals and more than one food chain. if i took away the secondary consumer then the tertiary would die because they would have nothing to eat
Co2+H2O+----C6 H12 O6+ O2
you need sunlight, water, oxygen
photosynthesis takes place inside plant cells in small things, called chloroplast.
- this is where the energy transformation takes place during photosynthesis.
- tropisms means directional movement response that occur in response to a directional stimulus. types of tropisms: phototropisms, thigmotropisms, gravitropisms
the role of decomposers
- decomposers are very important to my ecosystem. decomposers break down dead animals and plants. they also break down the waste of other organisms. so if they weren't in the ecosystem the plats wouldn't get there nutrients from the decomposers, and all the waste would pile up and then the tropical rain forest would be deserted.
- types of decomposers in my ecosystem are bacteria and fungi and they break down the organic matter in dead bodies of plants and animals.
