  • The Causes And Effects Of Ocean Pollution

    if all of the marine life on Earth today were to go extinct? Would the loss affect humans at all? The answer to these questions, is yes, because the ocean provides 50% of our oxygen. Without saltwater animals, there would not be any underwater plants to provide this oxygen. Because humans are slowly destroying marine life, which is essential to all life on Earth, it is necessary to rescue, rehabilitate, and release marine animals. One of the main causes of death and injuries of sea…

  • Nitrates In Water Research Paper

    neutralizes the acid in the water. (Oram, no date) “Nitrates are forms of nitrogen and is found in several different forms in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems”. Nitrates in the water are caused by wastewater treatment plants, runoff from fertilized yards, and crop land. (EPA, 2009) Nitrates are found in proteins, and are always being recycled by plants and animals. “Bacteria in water quickly convert nitrates [NO2-] to nitrates [NO3-].” (Nitrate-Nitrogen Water Quality Information, no date) …

  • Rate Of Photosynthesis Of Elodea In The Aquarium

    intensity and photosynthesis rate of Elodea in an aquarium using a simulator. Background Photosynthesis is metabolic pathway in which plants use carbon dioxide and water to produce glucose by the aid of light energy from the sun. Light energy is usually absorbed by chlorophyll; a green pigment in plants. The equation of photosynthesis is as follows: Although aquatic plants live in different conditions compared to those who live in air, they can still perform photosynthesis due to the…

  • Phosphorus Cycle

    important role of phosphorus is that it is the key component of DNA and RNA. Phosphorus is important for producing ATP. plants absorb phosphorus from the environment and then proceeds to convert it from inorganic phosphorus to organic phosphorus. The organic phosphorus is discharged and converted back into organic phosphorus through decomposition. Seasonal patterns in the aquatic ecosystem effects phosphorus levels. During the spring, inorganic phosphorus is discharged from the sediment by…

  • Animal Adaptation Essay

    Plants and animals have made changes in their habitats as they have transitioned from water environments to land environments. This alteration requires the organisms to adapt to their new environments in order to survive and reproduce. These evolutionary transitions eventually led up to alterations in means of respiration, ways to prevent water loss, water dependent reproduction, and structural transformations. Amphibians evolved into reptiles and eventually into birds and mammals, being able to…

  • Light And Photosynthesis Essay

    carbon dioxide.(Plant and Light) However, this lab is focused on how the intensity of light affect the plant’s photosynthesis in order to see how the intensity of light affect the plant’s photosynthesis, specifically Elodea plants. Photosynthesis is a process which happens in all plants and organisms where they absorb light energy from the sun and convert it into chemical energy which is later used to fuel organisms’ livings and activities.(Rate of Photosynthesis) Additionally, Edola plants,…

  • Biodiversity-The IUCN Red List Categories And Criteria

    (CBD)- Biodiversity is defined as the variability among living organisms from which all sources including inter alia, terrestrial, marine and other aquatic ecosystems and the complexes of which they are part; this includes diversity within species, between species and of ecosystems themselves. Floristic diversity refers to the variety and variability of plants in a region. Floristic structure is considered as one of the major exceptional characters of the community (Dansereau, 1960) and…

  • Lab Report Photosynthesis

    the process used by plants, algae and some bacteria, to use the energy from the sunlight to transform carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen. The equation for photosynthesis is: carbon dioxide + water light energy glucose + oxygen. Chloroplasts are an organelle found in the leaves of green plants and are essential in photosynthesis as they are responsible for producing the glucose and storing the energy. Photosynthesis is vital for all life on earth as the plants create their…

  • The Effect Of Light Intensity On Photosynthesis

    Purpose: To investigate the effect of light intensity on plant growth through counting the amount of oxygen produced. Hypothesis: If the light intensity increases, than so does the rate of photosynthesis (which a major factor for plant growth). If the rate of photosynthesis increases, than the rate of Oxygen produced as a product also increases, if the rate of photosynthesis decreases than the exact opposite will happen to the amount of oxygen. Scientific explanation: As the light intensity…

  • How Does Chlorophyll Affect Plant Growth

    Introduction: Once a plant begins growth, it depends on multiple abiotic factors to continue growing: light, carbon dioxide and water. These three factors affect the growth rate of a plant, causing it to grow quicker or slower. Furthermore, altering these factors may stunt plants growth or improve it. For example, plants require an adequate amount of water to survive. Water hydrates the plant and also breaks down the minerals in the soil. As the plant absorbs the water, nutrients are transported…
