storyboard about my backyard and all of the ecosystems and all the organisms in it.
Hi there! Welcome to My Backyard. I will show you you as we travel through this ecosystem.
To start, any ecosystem must contain many biotic and abiotic factors. Ecosystems have bacteria carrying capacity, so all animals living in symbiosis have a certain position in their community
For instance, I am a bee. I am an animal that many other animals and plants rely on here. Something I do to help out out around here is I fly from flower to flower spreading pollen to keep all of the flowers and trees alive. I guess you could say I'm a pretty big deal around here. If an invasive species came here it would probably ruin the whole lifestyle that we have. They come in demanding our resources and try to take over and eating all our prey
There are many things that can affect the population of an ecosystem. One of them might include predation. This is where the predator hunts its prey. Competition is very common when a couple of animals share the same types of food. The two animals will begin to fight over what they are after. Then, there is something called parasitism. This happens when something that one species does but it doesn’t harm the other.
Also, there are more positive things that take place in the garden. One thing might include mutualism. This is a relationship between 2 animals what benefits both. You can see this with bees and flowers. The bees get the nectar from the flowers and transfer the pollen through all the flowers so both the bee and the flower can benefit from this situation. Also, there is commensalism, this is a relationship that benefits one species but does not affect the other. As I mentioned before, I spread pollen around this place and also in the surrounding gardens. No one is usually harmed when I do this. Finally there is co-operation in this garden by ever species helping out each other to do what they need to doto keep this garden running.
Anyway, you can see how different relationships balance our ecosystem here in this garden. I hope that you have learned something new about our ecosystem today!
