5 types of ecosystems and describe each:

Forest ecosystem abundance of flora, or plants, is seen so they have a big number of organisms which live in relatively small space.

Desert ecosystems are located in regions that receive an annual rainfall less than 25. They occupy about 17 percent of all the land on our planet. Due to the extremely high temperature, low water availability and intehttps://tackk.com/cp6wz1nse sunlight, fauna and flora are scarce and poorly developed.

Grassland ecosystem 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.

Mountain land ecosystems provides a scattered and diverse array of habitats where a large number of animals and plants can be found. At the higher altitudes, the harsh environmental conditions normally prevail, and only the treeless alpine vegetation can survive.

The Aquatic ecosystem is the ecosystem 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.

Words you need to know!!

1.decomposer:  Worms and many other bugs and animals are organisms that break down dead or decaying organisms, and in doing so, carry out the natural process of decomposition.

2. consumer:   An organisam that generally obtains food by feeding on other organisamsor organic matterdue to lack of the ability to manufacture own food from its self like cows, foxes, and any other animal who eats things.

3. ecosystem:   A community of living organisms (plants, animals and microbes) in conjunction with the nonliving components of their environment (things like air, water and mineral soil), interacting as a system.

4. producer:  An organism that makes its own food from light energy or chemical energy without eating is called a producer. Almost all producers are plants like flowers, shrubs, grass, exetra.

5. food chain: Alinear sequence of links in a food web starting from "producer" species (such as grass or trees) and ending at apex predator "decomposer" species (like grizzly bears or killer whales).

6. biotic:  worms are oly alive because they rely one living things.

7. abiotic: Just like air, rocks are also abiotic.

8. adaptation:  when an animal or plant change to live in there envierment they are adapting.

Examples of biotic factors in a wetland ecosystem:

Abiotic factors are sunlight, air, climate, soil, water, rocks, and temperature. Biotic factors are turtlehead flowers, water, trees, butterflires, competition, bacteria, carrying capacity, plaintain, ash, and the false foxglove.

Abiotic factors in a wetland ecosystem:

A natural wetland is a complex ecosystem. Like other ecosystems, whether land- or water-based, many factors affect the form and function of the wetlands. Both biotic and abiotic factors and processes are integral to the natural wetland ecosystem. The term "biotic" refers to living things.

Ecosystem food chain:

Producer->Primary Consumer->Secondary

Flower-> Cow-> Human

Consumer->TertiaryConsumer-> Quarternary Consumer->Top Predator

Mouse-> Cat-> Dog-> Wolf

what do the arrows in question # 11 represent, they represent:

The arrows repesent the animals or thing eating each other.

What might happen to the food chain if one element were to be eliminated:

What might happen is the other animal or plants(cosumers or decomposers) will die because they lost all there sorce of food.

Wetlands positively affect water quality:

Wetlands protect shoreline from erosion at the margins of lakes, rivers, bays, and the ocean protect shorelines and stream banks against erosion. 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. Making the ecosystem better.

Wetlands provide habitat for wildlife. Fishies, birdies and certain mammals must have coastal wetlands to survive. Most commercial and game fish breed and raise their young in coastal marshes and estuaries. These einviormet changes help many water animals.

Wetlands also give natural products for our economy like, fish and shellfish, blueberries, cranberries, timber, and wild rice, as well as medicines that are derived from wetland soils and plants. Many of the nation's fishing and shell-fishing industries harvest wetland.
