biotic factors : living factors in a ecosystem

abiotic factors: Non-living factors in a ecosystem
CHANGES IN POPULATION
Carrying capacity -largest number of individual of one species that an environment can support.
resources for a population to survive
*water *sun *food *shelter
the parrots probably had enough food,water,shelter during 1994 -2001 then 2002-2008 food and water were probably running out and predators were attaching
limiting factors-any factor or condition that limits growth of a population in an ecosystem
limiting factors in the rainforest
*SUN *SOIL *PREDATOR HUNTING *FOOD SUPPLY *TROPICAL STORMS
jaguars are one of the predator that put animals in danger, like sloths, peccary, monkeys, tapirs. the jaguars could put their resources into the limiting factors area and run out of food.
bamboo -> grubs -> mountain gorilla -> jaguar
plants -> rabbit -> fox
plant -> herbivores insects -> spiders -> owls/hawks
they receive their energy from the 10% that wasnt used up
The producers role is important because they are the base of our food chain such as herbivores eat producers.
FOOD CHAINS AND FOOD WEBS
food webs show multiple pathways of energy transfer and chains only show one pathway.
if you removed the bengal tiger from the food wed the king cobra would be the only tertiary consumer in the food webs so it would be the only one that eats all the primary consumers.
trophic levels & energy pyramids
the energy pyramid shape shows how the amount of useful energy that enters each level, decreaseas as it is used by the organisms in that level.
the producers aren't eating any other organism ,it is producing it's own food
Co2 + h2o->c6 h12 o6 + O2
In photosynthesis you need light and water
The thing that is produce is carbon dioxide and sugar/ oxygen
For photosynthesis to occur, the plants need sunlight, water and carbon dioxide.
The turning of all the part of an organism in a particular direction
Role of decomposer
Decomposers break down dead plants and animals. If decomposers weren't in the ecosystem, the plants would not get essential nutrients
examples of decomposers: termites,worms, beetles,mushrooms,snails,fungi, ants,
The purpose of having adaptation is for the living things to produce over and over again, there are mainly two adaptation for the rainforest; animal and plant adaptation.
Adaptations are special features that allow a plant or animal to live in a particular place or habitat. These adaptations might make it very difficult for the plant to survive in a different place.
If you were to move a red-eye tree frog to a dessert then it would most likely die out because there is barely any water in the dessert . So the population of red-eyed tree frog would die out. And the anaimals that depend on the frog would die out also
definition- the process where organism better adapted to their environment tend to survive and produce more offspring.
It is important because it creates extra space, more room for other organisms in this ecosystem
