Food Web Singleton 2 While our ecosystem does exist, without dramatic changes, we can speak of the objects without contradicting anything in it. The existence of the ecosystem is contingent on human society, it is very important that we acknowledge that. The people that play one of the most important roles are the environmental scientists. They describe the ecosystem and in the correct management of the ecosystem, but we miss the importance of the human role in the environment if we discretely see the objects of the ecosystem as independent of the human society. Just a few years ago we had an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that was caused by BP Oil Company. This impacted the whole gulf coast not just the animals. They had to pay almost 8 billion dollars to businesses and families. The spill caused major damage to marine, wildlife habitats, and to the Gulf's fishing and tourism industries. Being from Louisiana I seen firsthand the effect the spill had on the gulf coast. Seafood is one of the biggest markets we have in Louisiana and we could not eat, buy, or sell anything out of the gulf. Skimmer ships, floating containment booms, anchored barriers, sand-filled barricades along shorelines, and dispersants were used in an attempt to protect hundreds of miles of beaches, wetlands, and estuaries from the spreading oil. Scientists also reported immense underwater plumes of dissolved oil not visible at the surface as well as a "kill zone" surrounding the blown well.

    An ecosystem is composed of the producers, consumers, decomposers and the living organism that interact and reside in this habitat. They are part of the food web and their roles are important in maintaining the environment. Producers make food, the consumers feed on it but at the same time the decomposers also break down the food to go back to the food web. Mother Nature has assigned different roles (plants and animals) that will sustain our environment and as caretakers we must preserve the ecosystem (no land clearing) so that it will continue to thrive and…

    However, when animal number become to concentrated in an area mother nature tries to take care of it. Diseases sweep in and take out large numbers of animals. Animals like raccoons catch many diseases when there are too many in an area (AustinPUG Health). Even in Southwest missouri this happens yearly without much notice. Raccoons will be out in daytime standing on roads or paths, and they will not run away as you draw closer. They don’t act scared at all of vehicles or people. They will chase children and adults alike. This is all due to having too many raccoons in an area. Trapping controls these populations and keeps these animals from dieing for nothing. Also trapping is a very quick death as trappers quickly and cleanly dispatch animals from their sets. Almost all furbearers that are trapped for their fur are carnivorous and controlling the number of predators allows the number of prey to…

    These reactions in water have one feature in common: a hydrogen ion from one compound reacts with a hydroxide ion from the other compound to form water. The compound furnishing the hydrogen ion is called an acid and the one furnishing the hydroxide ion is called a base. The metal ion (the cation) of the base and the anion of the acid combine to form a salt. In this context, salt is essentially synonymous with ionic compound. Reactions such as these are called acid-base reactions.…
