BIOTIC & ABIOTIC FACTORS BETWEEN TERRESTRIAL AND AQUATIC ECOSYSTEM …
BIOTIC & ABIOTIC FACTORS BETWEEN TERRESTRIAL AND AQUATIC ECOSYSTEM
Terrestrial ecosystem: Tropical Rain Forest
High exposition of light
for photosynthesis process
Average rain falls from 2000m to 4000 m yearly
Poor in nutrients
Definition: The acidity or alkalinity of the soil affects the biological activities and minerals contain.
For example, there is some plants that are actively grow in alkaline state or acidity state.
Clay particles on land surface
Definition: Factors that are related with the physical nature of the area. For example , altitude.
Higher than 34 degree celcius or <20 degree celcius
Carbon Dioxide: Required by green plants for photosynthesis.
Nitrogen: Used up by certain bacteria and through action of lightning.
Oxygen: Required by living organisms for respiration.
Carry water vapor may undergo condensation and fall in the form rain
Help dispersal pollen grains of some plants and also dispersal insects
known as autotroph
green plants that produced organic compounds through photosynthesis process
eg: Goat, cowand zebra
eg: Leapards and lions
type of consumer
eg: ticks and flies
gets food from the host
eg: Mushroom and bacteria
Aquatic ecosystem: Ocean
Ocean organisms need specific temperature to grow, survive and reproduce
Affect the migration of ocean's organisms, how they find food, where they can be found
When temperature increase, organism may not be able to adapt
Ocean organisms live in specific salinity levels
Often affect water density; saltier water, more dense
The measure of salts in seawater
Penetration decreases as depth increases
For the process of photosynthesis
Dissolved substance that influence growth of the organisms
eg: nitrogen, phosphorus, carbon, iron
reacts with other elements and produced molecules that is vital for life
crucial for respiration, photosynthesis process, chemical process, metabolism
produced by algae and phytoplankton during photosynthesis
material that can be found at the bottom of the ocean
eg: hard rock, soft sediments (sand, clay), coral reef
Compete with one another to obtain resources such as food and shelter in order to survive
Competition between the same species
Competition between two different species
coral reef provide home/protection for organisms
can be classified as hard, flexible or soft
made up of tiny animals known as polyps
The living organism in the ocean
eg: fish, shrimp, shark
