For instance if population of blue jay is remove from the ecosystem, will be the whole food chain be affected

? When one trophic level of a food chain is removing, it will affect the population of others. Thus, when blue jay is taken out from the ecosystem, the population of others will also change to adapt with the new situation. The population of the caterpillar will shows a gradual increase as the predator that prey on it has extinct from the ecosystem. The upper trophic level also been affected by the removal of blue jay. The pack of fox will decreases in population as they has limited supply of food. The must compete with other consumers in order to survive. The producer also will decrease in size as the caterpillars depend on the grass for food. As the blue jay has been removed, caterpillar will growth its population and grass decrease as one of the consequences of the rapid growth of the population of the caterpillar.

the entire lower consumer such blue jay will increase in population as they are not hunted by predators for food. . For example if a fox is removed. Instead. the lower rate of growth can be observed for grass as it is one of the main sources of food that lower consumers consume on. Eventually the population of this lower consumer will decrease in size as grass will come to an end supply is they keep on holding to this source of produce.The consequence will be differing if the top consumer of a pyramid is removed.

. They help the process of decaying of organic material into inorganic materials that can be used back as nutrients for the producer to keep the growth stabilise.Decomposers are the organisms that eat on dead organism to reproduce and keep them alive. One affected the other. When the absence of decomposers happens. This scenario will happen without excluding any ecosystem. this will affect the growth of producer to supply food for the upper trophic organism. Ecosystem will be interrupted by the lack of supply of inorganic substance by the decomposers. This is because they are linking together in a cycle. Thus a gradual decline in growth of other organism will upset the balance in the ecosystem.

wetlands have been categorized both as biomes and ecosystems. This area usually may also cover with shallow pools of water. flooding or ponding long . wetlands are a type of land that having a water table that stands at or near the land surface for a long enough season to support aquatic plants. Wetlands are generally distinguished from other landforms based on their water levels and the types of plants that thrive within them. Basically.WETLANDS A wetland is a land area whose soil is saturated with moisture either permanently or seasonally. In detail. Technically. It is not just simply defined as a patch that develops a pool of water after a rainstorm. Wetlands have unique characteristics. Hydric soil is a soil that forms under condition of saturation. wetlands are lands that are made up of hydric soil.

rush. The water found in wetlands can be wetlands can be saltwater. There are some plants on the land such as cottonwood and willow. Wetlands include swamp. marshes and bogs. water boatmen and backswimmers. Right below the water surface some other insects can be seen such as water scorpions. Some common insects’ presence at the wetland areas are dragonflies and damselflies. There are also plants near the edge of the ponds like sedge. freshwater or brackish. mosquito larvae and pupae. cattail and reed plants.enough during the growing season to develop anaerobic condition in the upper part. .

. One of the symbiotic relationships that can be seen is a character displacement where most of the plants are pollinated with the help of flying critters. free-floating algae that make the water looks green or brown. Plankton algae are the most abundance microscopic. swans and geese are the most common birds’ species presence there.Sea ducks.

The plants are adapted to climate change so some grow in the warm station and others in autumn and spring. Plants of temperate grasslands breed in different places. in zones. There are several types of grasses that grow in the grassland biomes such as buffalo grass. This area is most affected by the change of climate. This is because the annual average temperature is 100 F. For example. especially the presence of water. where the rainfall is insufficient for the development of forests. There are also some types of wild flowers growing in there . ryegrass foxtail.TEMPERATE GRASSLANDS Temperate grasslands are defined as a land that can be characterized by the presence of herbaceous vegetation. wild oats and purple needle grass. shrubs do not grow in grasslands biomes while trees grow in stream and river basin.

blazing stars and asters. Other than that.such as wild indigos. gray wolves and wild turkey. like deer and horses which enable them to outrun from their predators. Large-sized grazers like bison used to reach the grasslands. sunflowers. the herbivores of grasslands have long legs and hoofs. The others are like eagles. . Temperate grasslands animals have some unique characteristics. golden nods. clovers.

Some symbiotic interaction occurs in this grassland ecosystem. growth reduction of the Silver Birch tree. It can eventually prove fatal to them where infestation is heavy. where one organism benefits while the other gains nothing. An Oxpecker rests on a African buffalo. This is an example of mutualism as both organisms get benefits. . Parasitism interaction is shown when Mistletoe relies on the Silver Birch tree mainly for the water and mineral nutrients it carries. This interaction is called commensalism. egrets are generally seen near the Rhinoceros as they feed on the parasitic insects found on the mammal’s body. though damage more commonly only result in Next. picking of f the parasites from its body while the buffalo allows the Oxpecker rests on him.

the ecosystem will having an imbalance and it will upset the mother nature. the secondary consumer which prey on biralves will decrease in number. a biralves is one of the primary consumer in the web. But in a longer period of time. For example. . the production of phytoplankton will increase as the consumer competing for the same type of food is lesser. On the other hand.If one of the trophic level is removed. A gradual increase can be observed by the growth of benthic vertebrate and small planktivorous fish increase. benthic vertebrate will also decrease as sea duck has limited supply of food. both producer amd the secondary tertiary will affected. if the biralves has come to a point that this population is rather extinct . Thus. The sea duck decrease in number as well as tundra swan that only prey on biralves. By the time biralves extinct . biralves eat phytoplankton as their main source of food to obtain energy. As we can see from the food web.

When a top consumer is removed most of the lower consumers will come to an increase in number. When there is a removal of consumer it will affect the whole system. As a result they will increase in number. as tundra swan is removed in this ecosystem the lower consumer is less vulnerable towards the predator. For an instance. But eventually. The population of the primary producer will have a change as increase of in the lower trophic level consumer will rely on the producer for the need to survive. The other consequences that are possible to happen be the secondary consumer will increase in size as they have fewer competitors to compete for food. they will to a point where they in return decrease in number. .

. They species can adapt themselves better in their fundamental niche and they will have a better physical appearance. By having a diverse type of species will have in co evolution in many aspects. Thus less competition will happen in the ecosystem. This is because when ecosystems have different type of producers. the primary producers will not have to compete for the same type producer.Food web usually consists of a few food chains with a similar or different type of species. The more species the less they will depending on each other or they will resilient.

From this web we can see all the trophics level related to the way they eat. As we can see the web is link together. In this section we will see the up and down in the . The ecosystem such as temperate grasslands and wetlands are the example of ecosystem that has vast food web. The interactions in an ecosystem can be expressed in form web. We can analysis different kind of interaction and discover type of organism belong to which trophic level in a food web. But what will happen if one of the structure or organism is interrupt by declined or inclined of it.Ecology is the interactions among living things and their environments.

.population of organism due to the interaction occur within their ecosystem.
