Storyboard Text

  • Here we have a small population of rabbits in a dry, deserted habitat. The organisms that lie here are the rabbits, which are biotic, and soil and rocks, which are abiotic. Humans are starting to migrate as well. 
  • The rabbits found a more suitable habitat to live in, where they can have a more useful niche as well. The rabbit population is also growing. They now also live in a community of organisms, as insects survive here too. They benefit from this as insects are not predators to them. 
  • The habitat the rabbits live in has expanded as more plants have grown, as well as more animals have migrated to this area. The rabbit population has slightly gone down as predators, who are carnivores like the eagle, have started to deplete the population. Balance will occur, though, at some point as the abiotic factors are balanced. 
  • The rabbits habitat has been altered once again. Humans have started to settle: cutting down trees, colonizing land, and hunting animals like the rabbits. The rabbit population is still thriving, but if factors like these continue, the popualtion could suffer. They will now spend more time underground in borrows to combat new threats. 
  • Over time, humans began urbanizing the rabbits habitat, and the rabbits couldn't survive as a large population in the city. Animals like rats and mouses began to populate as they thrived in dirty, disease prone places like a city can be. The temperature and air also was slightly altered due to factories and other earth changes. 
  • As one population of organisms, humans, evolved in their way of life, populations of animals and plants changed as well. Humans adapted to make life more efficent and suitable for a 7.6 billion population, while animals adapted and migrated to sustain themselves and their species. Rabbits have a decent tolerance curve and could live in a park in the city or a back yard, but humans have a much larger and therefore took over the rabbits habitat.
