Carrying capacity

The total amount of organisms that can be maintained in an environment due to lack of resources.

Population changes over time because of a lack of infinite resources. There may be an abundance of water, but little shelter or food one year.

Limiting Factors

Limiting factors in the tundra could be a lack of resources such as: water, sunlight, or type of soil ect. It could also be a sort of a natural disaster like a flood, drought, or somthing similar.

a predator prey relationship in this ecosystem could be a snowy owl to a arctic fox.

musk oxen: consumer, herbivore.

insects: consumer, can be herbivore, carnivore, or omnivore.

small flowers/plants: producer.

polar bear: consumer, carnivore.

trophic level eats the organisms in the level below them.

Producers are vital to any food chain, web, or energy pyramid because they are the only organisms that can make their own food.

Each trophic level gets its energy from the level below them.

producers are vital to any food chain, web, or energy pyramid because they are the only organism that can make its own food.

Food webs are more realistic than food chains because it shows competition.

If any organism was removed from the web, then there would be a significant increase or decrease of the surrounding organisms.

For example: if there weren't any hawks, there would be an increase of bunnies (Fun fact: a group of bunnies is called a fluffle.)

what you have so far is great, but make sure to include the energy roles of your ecosystem-- define and give examples of producers, consumers, and decomposers.
