    An aquatic ecosystem is a community of organisms that live within a body of water such as freshwater system or a saltwater system. The application of understanding aquatic ecosystems is how species adapt and inhabit a specific body of water that they reside in and the role that different water systems play in the survival of these various species. It is also important to understand the biodiversity within aquatic ecosystems to recognize why and how a wide range of diverse species can maintain a healthy lifestyle in an aquatic system such as a freshwater lake or stream. How do different aquatic ecosystems function at different climates in various locations around the world? How do different species in aquatic ecosystems contribute to the overall…

    As the pH level moves away from the normal balance of 7.0, it can negatively impact the survival and hatching rate of aquatic life.Both plastic and the fumes admitted when plastics are made, put excessive amounts of carbon dioxide into the ocean. This has caused the PH levels in the ocean to rise from a balanced PH level of 7, and has brought it up to 8.2. The jump in the acidity levels is destroying the great barrier reef, and shellfish beds. A raised PH level also poses a threat to many fish,…

    The Effect of pH levels on the Motility of Daphnia in Lake Ecosystems Introduction: The production, transportation, and use of chemicals by chemical industries can result in chemical pollution. This leads to a harmful effect on ecosystems and their balance of life (Linlin, Chen, 2012). The pH levels of aquatic environments are important because it affects the physiology of animals by changing their behaviors. The ion concentrations associated with the water and the organism’s survival can also…

    Nitrogen and phosphorus are the major limiting nutrient elements in a variety of aquatic ecosystems and are altered by anthropogenic activities; such as row crops, feed lots, and humans (Elser et al. 2007). Larger inputs of nitrogen cause an abundance of phytoplankton and macrophyte production (Ferree and Shannon 2001).The purpose of this study was to examine nitrogen and phosphorus levels at Ada Hayden Lake in the comparative context of their effect on phytoplankton abundance as well as…

    dissolved oxygen levels largely determine the size and diversity of the community the habitat is able to support (L. R. Bodensteiner et al., 2011). In this present study, two freshwater stream environments were studied: riffles, which are rocky areas with fast-flowing, shallow water, and pools, which are areas of deeper, slow-moving water. The effects of biotic factors on species diversity have already been studied. Competition between freshwater, inhabiting organisms generally results in a…
