Jungle Ecosystem

Biotic- Living factors in a ecosystem

Animals                           Plants
leopard                    Epiphytes
ocelots                             lianas
spider monkey          orchids

Abiotic- non-living factors in a ecosystem

Humid
Wet/Rainy
Dirt/Mud
Partly Sunny

Carrying Capacity

Carrying Capacity is the limit  of animals there can be with how much resources there are. For example, if there were a shortage of small animals, the tigers would compete to get some there for leaving the losers to die.

Limiting Factors

Limiting factors are things such as food, water, shelter, and space. If there is not enough food or water for the leopards, they will die. If there is a lot of Limiting factors the population will increase. A more clear example is if there is a short supply of monkeys, the leopards will die. There are also diseases and predetation.

Energy Roles

Energy roles are roles that organisms have so that other organisms can get energy.

Epiphytes get energy from the sun. The birds eat the fruit. Then the monkey eats the bird. After, the leopard eats the monkey.

Producers are vital the the system because plants get their energy from the sun and then makes their own food in which the herbivore then eats the plants and then the carnivore eats the herbivore and so on.

Food Webs/Chains

Food Webs are more realistic because it shows more things that a certain organisms eat.

It shows that a leopard can eat a monkey and a bird.

If you were to remove a certain population from an ecosystem, what ever eats that has a higher chance to die and what ever the organism ate will over populate.

The reason that the shape is a pyramid is because the higher you go energy wise, the energy is decreasing and thats why the top the top carnivore. The plants are at the bottom because the producers hold the most energy.

Photosynthesis

C6 H12 06

Photosynthesis starts with the

Tropisms

Orchids go towards the sun. Thats one example of tropisms.

Tropisms in jungles are very important as they help plants get food and water.

Decomposer

Decomposers are vital to the jungle. Thats what makes the tall trees and beautiful flowers and plants. Those plants also help all the animals stay alive.

One decomposer in the jungle is the cup fungus.

Adaptations

Adaptations are important to the jungle environment. Spikes help keep predators from eating them.

Plants can be camouflaged in the trees and ground. Animals can have claws to help devour its prey.

If you were to take a monkey and place it in the desert, then it will either find a mate and make a new species, or dehydrate and not have food and will pass away.
