Carrying Capacity and Changes in Populations

Carrying Capacity-the number or quantity of people or things that can be conveyed or held by vehicle or container.

Needed Resources:

1.food

2.water

3.sunlight

4.space

Every population has an increase or decrease due to a build up or lack of resources.Like if there was no food left the population would decrease.Also if there was an increase in water than the population would increase or decrease due to drought.

Limiting Factors and Predator/Prey Relationships

Limiting Factors-The factors that prevent a population from growing any larger.

Snakes vs Frogs are one of the main predator/prey relationships in the Tropical Rainforest.Yet this specific relationship is slowly decreasing due to limiting factors such as 1.temp,2.water,3.food etc.These limiting factors can change a population.

                           

                     Energy Roles

PRODUCERS:a person, company, or country that makes, grows,or supplies goods.

ex.rice plant

HERBIVORES: an animal that feeds off of plants.

ex.howler monkeys

OMNIVORES: an animal or person that eats food of both plant and animal origin.

ex.banded tree frog

CARNIVORES: an animal that feeds on flesh.

ex.tiger

DECOMPOSER: an animal,especially a soil bacterium, fungus, or invertebrate, that decomposes organic material.

ex.fungi

SCAVENGERS:an animal that feeds on carrion, dead plant material, or refuse.

ex.alligator

Producers get their energy from the sun/heat, while the consumers get their energy from the producers/plants.The decomposers meanwhile get their energy from complex food, such as, like dead and living plants and animal tissue.

They are the base of our food chain,primary consumers such as herbivores(plant eaters)eat producers when secondary consumers(omnivores)eat the herbivores etc.

                     Food Chains

Food Chains vs Food Webs:a food chain only allows just one path as animals find.While a food web shows the many different paths plants and animals are connected.
