Eco System Portfolio
Carrying Capacity The Number of quantity of people or things that can be convoyed or held by a vehicle or container
Food, Water, Shelter, Space
Populations change over time
If there isn't enough resources then not alot of organisms will be able to survive.
Factors that influence carriying capacity
Predator/prey relationships in the Savanna
Lion and a Gazzelle
Producer- Things that Produe to other organisms; Jackalberry tree
Consumers- A person or thing that eats uses something;Zebras,warthog
Omnivore-An animal or person that eats food of both plant and animal origin; Redbille Oxpecker
Herbivore- An animal that feeds on plants; giraffe
Carnivore- Animals that feeds on flesh;Lion
Decomposers- Organisms that decompose organic material; Vultures
Scavengers- an animal that feeds on carrion, dead plant material, or refuse.
Food Chains Vs. Food Webs
Food webs are more realistic than food chains because it shows the producers and has more than a few organims
if you remove one population from the food web then the organism that eats that organism for food would die of hunger.
The energy pyramid shows that each feeding level has less energy than the one below it. and it goes from producer , primary consumer , secondary consumer , and tertiary consumer. when you go up the pyramid your getting smaller from your factors.
Why Producers are at the top of the pyramid
The producers are what start the food chains , food webs , and energy pyramids. If you didn't have those producers then you couldn't have food chains , food webs , and energy pyramids.
