Tropical Evergreen Forest
Carrying Capacity and Changes in Populations
The carrying capacity of an ecosystem is how many organism it can hold.
A population needs food,water,and shelter to survive. it has to have food so it can eat, and if it doesn't eat then it cant survive. Water is the most important thing because it needs water. It can go without food but it cant go without water at all. They need shelter because if it ever storms really bad then it need a place to hang while the storm is going on. Like snake have to have holes to live in or any kind of shelter because they have to have shelter too,as well as food and water.
Limiting Factors and Predator/Prey Relationships
limiting factors are the things that limit the growth, abundance, or distribution of an organism.
Limiting factors can effect a snake in the tropical evergreen forest by if it ever rains it may fload the hole.
There are many types of producers, consumers, decomposers.
Different types of coconsumers- herbivore, carnivore, omnivore, scavenger.
A snake is a consumer and the type is a carnivore. A butterfly is a consumer and the type is a herbivore.
A butterfly gets its energy from a flower and the flower give the butterfly its nector and a snake gets its energry from eating other things
PRODUCERS- they have to have sun bevause if they didnt they couldnt make food and also they would die if they didnt have sun. Producera are vital to an ecosystem beacsue some organisms live off of producers.
Food Chains and Food Webs
A food web is alot of differnt animals that dont go in a straint line but it also shows energy arrows going diddfernt kinds of animals. A food chain is it going in a strait line showing the energy arrows going to each organism in a strait line.
A food web would be more relistic in the tropical evergreen forest beccause there isnt just 4 organisms living in thr tropical evergrenn forest there are alot of differnt animals living there
If i removed the tree in the food web then the chipmunk wouldnt have anywhere to live of the deer wouldnt have anything to eat. It would be bad.
