Contrary to the Marine ecosystems, the freshwater ecosystem covers only 0.8% of Earth's surface and contains 0.009% of the total water. Three basic kinds of freshwater ecosystems exist:
- Lentic: Slow-moving or till water like pools, lakes or ponds.
- Lotic: Fast-moving water such as streams and rivers.
- Wetlands: Places in which the soil is inundated or saturated for some lenghty period of time.
Abiotic Factors Biotic factors
Food, water, Shelter and space The population will increase cause all the shelter will save them
Carrying Capacity-The number or quantity of people or things that can be convoyed or held by a vehicle or container
Limiting Factors-Factors that influence carrying capacity
the sharks will eat fish because of this the population will decrease and the limiting factors will affect them in many ways
Producers-things that produce to other organisms.
Consumers-A person or thing that eats or uses something
Decomposer-an organism, especially a soil bacterium, fungus, or invertebrate, that decomposes organic material.
herbivores- an animal that feeds on plants
Scavengers-an animal that feeds on carrion, dead plant material, or refuse.
Carnivores-animals that only eats meat
Omnivores-animals that eat plants and meat
The producers provide the energy to the other organisms and gets its energy from the sun. then the consumers gets its energy from the producers and the decomposers breaks down its energy and eats dead organisms.
producers are important cause with out the producers all the other organisms will not survive.
Food webs are more realistic then food chains cause it provides more producers and has more then a couple of organisms
If I would remove the fish then all of the sharks and whales wouldn't have enough food to eat.
Because pyramids are the only it will work through energy. And the pyramid shape explains the different consumers and its producers.
Because producers are the main key and they provide energy for other organisms and predators are the top cause they are the head and like the control of the food web
