Decomposer: The decomposer microorganisms in a soil or compost cannot absorb the large polymers through their cell walls.
Consumer: Scandinavians are the largest consumers of rye.
Ecosystem: interacting organisms and their physical environment
Producer: Trees are Producers because they are the first level in the food chain .
food Chain: Foxes are at the top of the food chain because they eat birds, and birds eat worms.
Biotic: The important unit of ecological study is the biotic community.
Abiotic: These hydrocarbons are believed to be created by abiotic processes.
Adaptation: living in groups is an adaptation that increases the efficiency of hunting
Some examples of biotic factors in a wetland ecosystem are water, air, sunlight, minerals, and rocks.
Some examples of biotic factios in a wetland ecosystem are flowers, water, trees, butterflires, competition, bacteria, carrying capacity, plaintain, ash.
Energy enters a food chain in the form of sunlight...
Arrows are just used to represent which organism eats the other organism.
If a food chain loses an organism, it creates an imbalance and
disruption in the food chain. For example, if a species of bird
becomes extinct, the insect population can grow dramatically which
creates problems for other creatures.
Weatlands positively effect water by quality be filtering water, like sediment clogs waterways and that would affect fish developtment.
Wetlands suck up all the water like a spunge when or if there is a flood. trees, roots, mats slow dawn the speed of flood waters.
Weatlands control shortline erosions with lakes, rivwers, bays protectiong the shortline from erosions. with the plants absorbing the energy of waves braking dawn the currents.
Wetlands provide habitat for wildlife by giving them water, shelter, and food. Wetlands also offer recreation, source of income, and more.
