Carrying capacity refers to the balance between availability of habitat components and the numbers of animals the habitat can support. The resources that are needed are food, water, shelter, and space.
A population in the amazon rainforest can change over time depending on the carrying capacity.
A population in the Amazon Rainforest can vary depending on any resources or the amount of predators in the area.
Any factor or condition that limits the growth of a population in an ecosystem. Some limiting factors in the rainforest are food, water, sunlight, and shelter, and space.
For example, if the population of iguanas decreases because of the number of resources in the rainforest, then the harpy eagles would have a limiting number of iguanas to eat.
Energy roles are determined by how the organism gains energy and how it interacts with other living things in its ecosystem.
In the rainforest, there are many plants and trees, which are producers. These producers are eaten by many primary consumers which are small birds and lizards. These primary consumers are eaten by secondary consumers, and they are eaten by third level consumers and the cycle goes on till you end up on the top level consumer or the top carnivore.
Food webs are more realistic to use for the rainforest instead of a food chain, because there are a numerous number of different animals and food chains in the rainforest and a food web gives more varieties of prey and predator examples.
If one population was removed from the food web, then the populations and limiting factors would decrease for different animals.
A model that shows how energy flows through a food chain/web It shows the amount of energy that moves from one trophic level to the next. The pyramid shape represents that energy is decreasing and becoming less available for each trophic level as you move from the bottom to the top.
During photosynthesis, radiant energy is changed into chemical energy, which is used to make glucose for the plant.
Tropism is turning or bending movement of an organism toward or away from an external stimulus, such as light, heat, or gravity.
An example of tropism in the amazon is the brazil nut tree, which has both a positive and negative to the stimulus. The chemical equation for photosynthesis is C6H12O6. Photosynthesis takes place inside the plant.
Decomposers are important to an ecosystem because when plants and animals die the decomposers break down the nutrients in the animal and plants into the soil. Without decomposers, the world would be a pile of trash and less plants to eat.
You could find mushrooms, fungi,flys and ect. in the rainforest.
