  • Disadvantages Of Citizen Science

    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 with 5th grade students would be “How do abiotic and biotic factors in an ecosystem interact and help each other?” This would be excellent in stimulating their minds because they would have to take into question of how non-living things and living things…

  • Invertebrate Diversity

    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 decreased population size for both organisms and a displacement or elimination of one of the competing species (D. M. Baltz et al. 2011). This present study…

  • Write An Essay On The Savanna Biome

    Abiotic factors are factors that are not living but affect living things. Two examples are fire and soil. These play very important roles in the savanna and help biotic factors live. 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…

  • Biotic Limiting Factors In The Tropical Rainforest

    People cut down trees to build things, but in the process they take away organism’s habitats. A biotic limiting factor is the competition between species. The rainforest is very diverse with different species and all of them have a very specific niches because of the number of populations. An other biotic limiting factor is the density of the trees that allows for few plants to be able to grow near the ground in…

  • Galveston Ship Channel Recruitment Report

    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 like to live…

  • Spatial Variability In Plankton Communities

    Therefore, understanding variation of plankton communities with distance from shore will allow us to better understand how the unique features of the California bight influence their distribution. In order to do this water samples from three locations within the Southern California Bight were collected in order to analyze the planktonic community present both vertically and horizontally off the coast. Biotic factors such as salinity, temperature and nutrients were also…

  • Essay On Drum Set

    It is hard to picture the Beatles without Ringo or Led Zeppelin without Bonham. These drummers many not be front and center, but they are the back bone to the band. And without the Drum set these drummers would have never been. Jazz or Rock n Roll or Pop music wouldn’t be the same without the invention and evolution of the drum set. The drum set took over a century to become what it is today. The drum set is an American instrument and through its development it has reflected the way America has…

  • Distmo Case Study

    Results The results focus on the effect of the personalized mus- cle geometry on the force generation in the lower limb. DistMo defines the model personalized with the PA ob- tained with the straight line approach, while CenMo describes the model personalized with the PA obtained with the centroid line approach. GenMo represents the model that used the generic values of the PA from OpenSim (PARF = 13.9◦, PAV I = 4.5◦, PAV L = 18.4◦, PAV M = 29.6◦). The inter-model force and moment variations…

  • Abiotic Factors In Agriculture

    Abiotic factors are the nonliving components that affect crop production. One important abiotic factor is topography. Topography is defined as the “lay of the land (cropsreview.com). The topography includes earth features such as land elevation, slope, terrain, bodies of water, etc. This topography can play a huge role for plants. For example, a steep slope is susceptible of rapid surface runoff and soil erosion which can cause soil degradation and have a serious impact on the efficacy of crop…

  • Ecosystems: Tropical Rainforest

    regulates the overall climate, and is a source of medicine and food (Bush et al., 2011). In your own words, explain or define biogeochemical cycle. Biogeochemical cycle refers to a pathway through which the chemical substances are transported and transformed in both the biotic and the abiotic earth compartments. Describe the steps in the carbon cycle as an example of one biogeochemical cycle. Step #1: Carbon moves from the atmosphere to plants through the process known as photosynthesis. Step…
