Fire as we know burns and destroys many things. Although this is true it actually helps renew and change the savanna so that it doesn’t become a tropical forest. The soil also is a big component because without soil there would not be plants and without plants the animals would not be able to survive. These 2 abiotic factors, although, they are small they definitely have a great impact on the…

    food easily as there isn’t much shelter for animals lower down on the food chain which explains a biotic factor. Since there isn’t a lot of rain there aren’t many trees which animals feed from.

    environmental conditions (Babbock 1987).Biotic and abiotic factors play a large roll in an ecosystem. Biotic factors are living things like plants and animals while abiotic factors are things like sunlight and temperature. Laboratory settlement experiments over invertebrates utilizing different light intensities indicated that light level was the variable responsible for changes in settlement orientation with depth (Babcock 1996). Just like humans marine animals have certain parameters that they…

    Spatial variability in local plankton communities can have large effects on the composition and diversity of the secondary production with in an area. Therefore, it is important for scientists to study the factors that affect plankton community’s abundance, diversity and dominance. In this study multiple physical and biological factors were observed in order to examine how surface plankton communities varied with distance from shore in the nearshore environment of the Southern California Bight.…

    barnacle has out-competed the column barnacle. (Luckens, 1975) The brown barnacle does not settle on other barnacles and only settles in late summer, while the column barnacle settles year round. This gives the column barnacle an advantage at lower tidal zones and allows it to out-compete the brown barnacle. (Luckens, 1975) Abiotic and Biotic Factors Although both organisms are affected by a variety of abiotic and biotic factors, the main biotic factor is competition and the main abiotic factor…

    1. Inquiry, inquiry based learning, is when simple observations turn into a curious question like “Why does it do that?” “Why does it change colors?” “What makes it move?”. Then that simple observation will catalyze an experiment, causing the individual to make a discovery proving that their idea is right or wrong. They will learn through trial and error, they will be able to grasp why something is the way it is or why that happens. 2. An example of a guided inquiry project I could facilitate…

    Dinoflagellates are marine plankton, they are producers and have eukaryotic cells (meaning that the cells have a nucleus). Diatoms are unicellular, they are a type of algae. Cleaner shrimps free other organisms of parasites. Copepod are small crustaceans found in marine ecosystems. Ptereopods are a type of sea snail/slug. The type of squids, sharks and small fish found in a marine ecosystem depend on the abiotic elements. Amphipods are also a type of crustacean found in saltwater and fresh water…
