A coral reef is a large group of coral with many fish living in or around it.
They contain many varieties of fish and other animals.
The coral reef has many biotic factors such as...
- Staghorn Coral
- Elkhorn Coral
- Lettuce Coral
- Grooved Brain Coral
- Common Brain Coral
- The fish are shown below
- Great Star Coral
- Ivory Bush Coral
- Mustard Hill Coral
- Clubbed Finger Coral
- Massive Starlet Coral
The abiotic factors are
Water little oxogen rocks lack of sun
the fish die off and because of that the sharks die off. if the sharks don't have fish to eat then they cant survive and will die off.
this is a video on how pollution effects the coral reefs
the limiting factors include lack of oxygen pollution and human interaction.
some predator prey relationships are a shark and a fish the pollution can create an environment that plants cant live in.
A piece of coral is an example of a producer-a fish is an example of a producer a fish is an example of a primary consumer. a larger fish such as a stingray is a consumer. a shark is a 2nd consumer.
the pyramid shape shows the energy getting lesser because only 10% is going to the next level. the producers have the most energy putting them at the bottom
the cytoplasts use the light energy
solar to chemical
the plants growing to the sun
adaptations for an animal in a coral reef include gills, change of skin color and a shell. it allows the animals to survive by breathing water and hiding.
if the organisms did not have these traits then they would die out and be seen by preditors more often.
natural selection is the process of weeding out less helpful adaptations
