  • Life In An Ecosystem
  • Have you ever wanted to know about how ecology affects the environment? Ecology is where one organism consumes another. Here's an example of how it works... Once there were grasses, flowers, and plants. They grew and grew until this rabbit came along. The rabbit ate the plants!
  • By eating the plants the rabbit consumed 10% of the 100% of the energy from the plant. The rabbit is called a primary consumer. Later on a snake came along, he snuck up on the rabbit! The snake ate him!
  • When the snake ate the rabbit he consumed 1% of the 10% energy the rabbit had. The snake is called a secondary consumer. A while after a hawk comes, he was so hungry and he was looking for food. He fond the snake. The hawk flew down and grabbed the fox and ate him.
  • When the hawk ate the snake, he consumed .01% of the 1% energy that the snake had. This is what an energy pyramid of what organism ate what, and how much energy they consumed. Now the environment is affected by organisms being consumed, But other organisms can reproduce and make a bigger population of that organism. Also, later on humans start building houses so it affected the environment and all of the animals didn't have a place to live.
  • Now you know pretty much everything you need to know about ecology. See you next time!
