FOOD CHAINS, FOOD WEBS AND ECOLOGICAL PYRAMIDS
In an ecosystem, plants capture the sun's energy and use it to convert inorganic compounds into energy-rich organic compounds. This process of using the sun's energy to convert minerals (such as magnesium or nitrogen) in the soil into green leaves, o

What are the consequences of the removal/extinction of an organism from the food web?
The extinction or removal of an organism from a food web can affect different organisms directly or indirectly, depending on the trophic level the organism is and in what role they play in the food web, if it is c
Human Influences in a Food Web
The temperate rainforest biome (specific to America) is most commonly recognised by its large and tall trees, non-seasonal vegetation, heavy rainfall and dense humidity. Temperatures rarely drop below freezing and irregularly exceed 27o C. Rainfall usually ranges fr

Look at the quote from Rachel Carson...
The Everglades ecosystems contain a diverse environment that stretches from the middle of the Florida peninsula to Florida Bay. The Everglades consists of endless marshes, towering palms, alligator holes, dense mangroves, and tropical fauna. Fire, water quality, and geology are just a few of the n
Man has never been content to leave the natural preserved in the state in which it was discovered. Likewise, the Everglades ecosystem has been bombarded by this pressure as man seeks to "redesign" the environment to suit the needs of the ever encroaching human population. This has brought about prof
Anything which we eat to live is called food. Food contains energy. The food (or energy) can be transferred from one organism to the other through food chains. The starting point of a food chain is a category of organisms called producers. Producers are, in fact, plants. So, we can say that...

Do you like to play games? If you do, you will need energy. Every time you run or jump, you are using up energy in your body. How do you get the energy to play? You get energy from the food you eat. Similarly, all living things get energy from their food so that they can
