The Forest

limiting factor definition: limiting factor is anything lacking in growth of population due to the lack of resources that thing needs to survive in the environment.

Biotic Factors:

plants:                                           animals:
oak trees                                      deer
mosses                                          red fox
walnut trees                                honey  badger
ferns                                             rabbits
evergreen trees                          red tailed squirrels
wild geranium                            

Abiotic Factors:

mistic air

Definition of carrying compacity: the number of people or living things in a region.

Predator / Prey:

The relationship between a chipmonk and a hawk is that the hawk will feed on the chipmonk as a sorce of prey, thus creating a decrease in the chipmonk population.

The producers are vital to the ecosystem because without them, where would animals get their energy?

Food chains and Food webs: A food chain shows who eats who and the energy that goes with it. A food web shows how the energy flows from animal to animal.

Food webs v.s. Food chains:

A foodweb is more realistic than a food chain because it shows the flow of energy as well as who is eating who.

If you were to remove one animal in the food web like the fox, then the rabbits, seed eating birds and mice would increase in population, while the foxes would die off.


water, radiant energy, oxyogen and glucose CO2, H2O, O2, C6h1206

photosynthesis: the process in which plants use sunlight to create their own food.


Decomposers are important in an environment because with out them things would take forever to break down on their own and plants wouldn't get the right nutrients to thrive.

decomposer is a organism  that breaks down dead plants and animals to make soil.

types of decomposers can include:

adaptations: adapting to meet the needs around you, changing to survive and thrive.

Adaptations are needed in an environment because animals, plants and humans need to change to fit living situations such as: temperature changes, harsh weather, drought or heavy rainfall, and so forth. In forests with dramatic changes of seasons, deciduous trees evolved.  By dropping their leaves when the weather turns cold, deciduous trees are able to withstand cold winters.  A flying squirrel adapts by developing night vision, wings and  camoflage.

natrual selection: is the natrual  selection in wich organisms evolve over time in bcoming ether mor or less of traits.

Try and be more specific with the abiotic factors, and find pictures for the biotic and abiotic sections.

How do I create a picture collage? I tried the links, but theydidn"t work (page not found).
