There Must Be An Echo In Here...

Give 5 types of ecosystems and describe each:

  1. Tropical evergreen forest: Tropican evergreen forests are tropical forests that  are seperated by dense vegetation which includes tall trees at different heights.
  2. Tropical deciduous forest: Tropical deciduous forests include shrubs and dense bushes with a lot of trees.
  3. Temperate evergreen forest: Temperate evergreen forests have quite a few number of trees. These trees have developed spiked leaves in order to minimize transpiration.
  4. Temperate deciduous forest: The forest is located in the moist temperate places that have sufficient rainfall. Summers and winters are clearly defined and the trees shed the leaves during the winter months.
  5. Taiga: The Taiga is defined by evergreen conifers. The temperature is below zero for almost half a year, the remainder of the months, it buzzes with migratory birds and insects, when the temperature increases.

Define the following by using them in a sentence.

1. decomposer-  The decomposer lived in soil.

2. consumer- The bear was a consumer because it ate the fish.

3. ecosystem-  There are 5 types of ecosystems.

4. producer- The producer was able to produce its own food.

5. food chain-The grizzly bear was at the top of the food chain meaning it was an apex predator or decomposer.

6. biotic- The cat was no longer biotic because it got hit by a car

7. abiotic- Abiotic factors in a wetland ecosystem are sunlight, air, climate, soil, water, rocks, and temperature.

8. adaptation-Animals use adaptation to survive.

What are some examples of biotic factors in a wetland ecosystem?

Biotic factors in a wetlands ecosystem are turtlehead flowers, water, trees, butterflires, competition, bacteria, carrying capacity, plaintain, ash, and the false foxglove.

What are some abiotic factors in a wetland ecosystem?

Abiotic factors in a wetland ecosystem are sunlight, climate, temperatue, water, rocks, aair and soil.

Find an example of a wetland ecosystem food chain:

Grass - Grasshopper- Toad- Snake- Hawk- Bacteria of decay

Energy enters the ecosystem food chain in what form?

It enters in the form of sunlight.

What do the arrows in question # 11 represent?

The arrows represent energy transfers

14. What might happen to the food chain if one element were to be eliminated (by disease or habitat loss, for example)?

The food chain wound probaby no longer exist


Wetlands have important filtering capabilities for intercepting surface- water runoff from higher dry land before the runoff reaches open water.


Wetlands act as natural sponges, soaking up the flood waters.


he ability of wetlands to control erosion is so valuable that some states are restoring wetlands in coastal areas to buffer the storm surges from hurricanes and tropical storms.


over 1/3 of endangered animals live in the wetland


Natural products and recreation are popular in wetlands.
