marine ecosystems- are among the largest of Earth's aquatic ecosystems. They include oceans, salt marshes, intertidal zones, estuaries, lagoons, mangroves, coral reefs, the deep sea, and the sea floor.

desert ecosystem- a barren area of land where little precipitation occurs and consequently living conditions are hostile for plant and animal life. The lack of vegetation exposes the unprotected surface of the ground to the processes of denudation.

aquatic ecosystem- an ecosystem in a body of water. Communities of organisms that are dependent on each other and on their environment live in aquatic ecosystems.

mountain ecosystem- complex of living organisms in mountainous areas.Mountain lands provide a scattered but diverse array of habitats in which a large range of plants and animals can be found.

grassland ecosystem- there are five terrestrial ecoregion classifications (subdivisions) of the temperate grasslands, savannas, and shrublands biome ('ecosystem'), which is one of eight terrestrial ecozones of the Earth's surface.

Like herbivores and predators, decomposers are heterotrophic, meaning that they use organic substrates to get their energy, carbon and nutrients for growth and development.

We must work faster to change consumer behavior anddevelop alternative sources of power.

Along with the new bid for money, the governmentpresented a plan for cleaning up the ecosystem.

Literature differs from the other arts in the relation in which the producer stands to the consumer.

A food chain also shows how the organisms are related with each other by the food they eat.

There are volumes of well documented evidence for the biotic origin of oil.

There is no other appropriate abiotic vehicle.

It made sense too that this change occurred as an adaptation for flight.

Energy enters an ecosystem food chain in the form of sunlight and light energy.

The arrows represent where the chain starts and ends. Representing the chains largest consumer or weakest.

The chain would fail if something falls out of place b/c whatever the animal was relying on for food has perished and it can't eat so it will die. Same thing happens to that animals predator.

Wetlands have important filtering capabilities for intercepting surface.

Wetlands function as natural sponges that trap and slowly release surface water, rain, snowmelt, groundwater and flood waters. Trees, root mats, and other wetland vegetation also slow the speed of flood waters and distribute them more slowly over the floodplain.

Wetland plants hold the soil in place with their roots, absorb the energy of waves, and break up the flow of stream or river currents.

More than one-third of the United States' threatened and endangered species live only in wetlands. They thrive here to survive.

They produce natural products for us to eat or use as a resource.
