Tropical Rain Forest: Contains more species than other biomes.
Savannah: Parts of Africa, South America and Australia.
Deserts: Parts of Africa, Asia, Australia, North America.

Decompsers: Organisms that break down dead or decaying organisms are called decomposers.
Consumer: A person or thing that eats or uses something are called a consumer.
Ecosytem: An ecosystem is a biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment.
Producer: Organisms in an ecosystem that produce biomass from inorganic compounds are called producers.
Food chain: The series of processes by which food is grown or produced, sold, and eventually consumed is called the Food Chain.
Biotic: Resulting from living things, especially in their ecological relations is called Biotic.
Abiotic: Not derived from living organisms, but physical than biological is called Abiotic.
Adaptation: The process by which something adapts or changes to their environment in order to survive.
Some examples of abitoic are trees, flowers, butterflies, other insects, and animals.
Some examples of abiotic are sunlight, air, climate, soil, water, and rocks.
Energy enters the ecosystem by the sun.
The arrows in a food chain diagram represent the orgainisms doing the eating.
The species that got elimnated would not eat other species, so that species would become over populated.
Wetlands positively affect water quality by helping purify the water with the plants.
Wetlands offer flood protection by acting like a sponge and obsorbing all the water.
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.
Wetlands provide habitat by giving fish in the water shelter and the animals that live near the food source.
Other benefits that wetlands provide are erosion control, habitats for fish, flood control, and natural filter
