Parts of Ecosystems Living Parts of Ecosystems

Ecosystem: groups of living things and the environment they live in All living things can meet their basic needs in their ecosystems some ecosystems only have a few living things insects and small plants in a concrete parking lot environment

Ecosystem: groups of living things and the environment they live in

All living things can meet their basic needs in their ecosystems

some ecosystems only have a few living things

insects and small plants in a concrete parking lot environment

forests, ponds, and streams have many living things these environments have more space, food and shelter so that many animals and plants can meet all their basic needs

forests, ponds, and streams have many living things

these environments have more space, food and shelter so that many animals and plants can meet all their basic needs

Populations a group of the same species living in the same place at the same time forest have many different tree populations trout is one fish population in a stream deer is one animal population in a meadow

a group of the same species living in the same place at the same time

forest have many different tree populations

trout is one fish population in a stream

deer is one animal population in a meadow

populations live in the environment to which they are adapted organisms that live in difficult environments must have unusual adaptations estuary has salt and fresh water Mangrove trees have roots and leaves that get rid of salt

populations live in the environment to which they are adapted

organisms that live in difficult environments must have unusual adaptations

estuary has salt and fresh water

Mangrove trees have roots and leaves that get rid of salt

ecosystems are named after the main population of plants that live there estuaries that have mostly mangrove trees are called mangrove swamps swamp: an area that is sometimes or always covered in shallow water

estuaries that have mostly mangrove trees are called mangrove swamps

swamp: an area that is sometimes or always covered in shallow water

Communities plants of the main population are where other organisms interact Mangrove branches hang over the water and attract insects looking for food/shelter schools (groups) of archerfish live among the roots they shoot water above the water trying to knock insects off the branches - then eats them flock of lesser blue herons feed on fish, frogs, and other animals in or near the shallow water at the roots of the tree

the plants need animals to carry away seeds and to add nutrients to the soil mangrove roots provide shelter for fish to swim and reproduce

Nonliving Parts of an Ecosystem nonliving parts of an ecosystem: sunlight, soil, water, air, and temperature nonliving parts interact Ex. water moving soil from place to place nonliving and living parts interact salt water (nonliving) and mangrove trees (living) - mangrove trees must filter out the salt in the water and other plants cannot do that

nonliving: sunlight, soil, air, water, and temperature

organisms of the same species form populations

communities are formed from different populations

community: made up of all populations that live in the same area plants and animals live together and depend on one another to survive
