Carrying out Capacity
The carrying capacity of a biological species in an environment is the maximum population size of the species that the environment can sustain indefinitely, given the food, habitat, water, and other necessities available in the environment.
If the food supply goes down the population will decrease. And a way to keep it even/not run out is by re-production in animals and plants.
Food, Water, Producers, Air,
. Sunlight is a limiting abiotic factor. This is due to a very dense canopy, sunlight is blocked from the rainforest floor making underbrush growth sparse. (No sunlight=No plants)
Limiting factors are environmental influences that constrain the productivity of organisms, populations, or communities and thereby prevent them from achieving their full biological potential which could be realized under optimal conditions. Limiting factors can be single elements or a group of related factors.
Predator/prey relationship- A cheetah is a predator and the gazelle is the prey.
Producer-is an organism, either a green plant or bacterium, which is part of the first level of a food chain.
Herbivores-an animal that feeds on plants
Omnivores-an animal or person that eats food of both plant and animal origin
Carnivores-an animal that feeds on flesh.
Decomposers- organisms that break down dead or decaying organisms. They eat dead things then they "poop" out the nutrients.
Scavengers- feed off dead animals or old plants. (Both carnivorous & herbivores)
Food webs and FOOD CHAINS
For my ecosystem a food webs is better than a food chains.
If you take out producers the tapir would not have food then the jaguar etc....
6. My energy pyramid shows orchids has 50% energy and Jaguar has 1%. Which means that the orchids have more than the jaguar in the rain forest .
