The main problem that would occur is the plants would not be able to conduct photosynthesis at a rate that can support them and they would start to die off. When the plants die off the organisms that eat the plants wont have any food so they will die off and so on. The temperature of the earth would most likely drop due to the lack of sunlight exposure as well. An earthworm wouldn’t suffer a huge amount until the bacteria started to die off due to the overall imbalance of the food chain, earthworms would definitely survive the longest because their food source would be the last to die off. The sharks also would not be affected for a while because it would take time for the algae to die off from lack of sunlight and cause a chain reaction of …show more content…
There is only a certain amount of nutrients that the ground supplies for trees, which doesn’t allow every tree to fully grow. The nutrients one tree is using in one area can restrict how much another tree in the same area can grow because of the competition for the minerals. d. They are most likely to be herbivores that feed off of the plant life at the bottom of the ocean because marine producers (seaweed and kelp) grow from the bottom of the ocean, surface marine life would not make good herbivores because plant life (other than algae) is so scarce. e. Insects that are affected by pesticides generally dwell within buildings where small birds that feed on insects can not reach, so the small birds would feed on insects that aren't affected by the pesticide and therefore wouldn’t die from it. Rodents, however, dwell both inside buildings and outside where the prey birds can reach them, resulting in the prey bird’s consumption of the pesticide. f. Hunting and gathering brings in significantly less food than growing crops and is also much more inconsistent, when the food supply is short, humans don’t tend to repopulate as much as societies with large food supplies. Crops, on the other hand, are consistent and can be grown fairly easily in large masses which doesn’t put restrictions on how much that society

The shark population would react in the same way. The immediate lack of sunlight would cause many fish to die, however after this source disappeared, the sharks would have little to feed on. The maple tree would slowly die because its source of sunlight was cut off. A saguaro cactus would be able to survive quite a while. Although it is used to a large amount of sunlight, and losing that sunlight would be a change, the cactus could survive off of its stored amount of water.
Animals like killer whales depend on seals for food. If the seals disappear, the killer whales will also start to die of because of starvation. Some fish species will become overpopulated. This is because there won’t be any seals to eat them, and then that
CHAPTER SIX: City Rats Unveiling of a rodent Of all the city creatures, the rat is the undisputed king. Due to its extraordinary climbing habits, rats make easy work of trees, power and telephone lines, and even gutter spouts to facilitate its access to homes [Bird]. If you live in the city, there are rats living with you, whether you see them or not. While there are several species, the two most well know in North America are the Roof rat and the Norway rat (also known as subway rat, sewer rat, alley rat, house rat, or common rat).
Colby Reynolds 2. If 80-85% of the sunlight was blocked not enough energy would come to the producers and they would slowly die from lack of energy. A short term effect on the earth worm is probably that it would b out more often since the heat of the son is gone however long term they would die since the plants they eat would not survive. For a shark at first the water would begin to be polluted from the ash and they would start to die off and eventually their population would dwindle because their food source would not be able to reproduce fast enough.
Good morning Mr. Smith, I am the dean of academics in Sonoran Science Academy-Tucson. We would like to have our AP Statistics as dual enrollment course through GCU. Dr. Martin Sade checked your Math 274 Probability and Statistics course syllabus. He told that we covered the same content in our AP Statistics class. Dr. Martin Sade has PhD in Math.
The rats were one of the main reasons for an unhealthy factory. Rats carried germs and diseases, however workers had to deal with that. They were exposed to being contaminated. “There was no place for men to wash their hands before they ate their dinner, and so they
One problem with becoming so reliant upon pesticides is that the pesticides runoff into water sources. This runoff of pesticides contaminates the water. Also when a crop is all the same plant that isn’t native to an area there is no biodiversity in that ecosystem. Nature has always been diverse but as a human civilization one tries to make everything the same. This isn’t a healthy way to approach food production and the environment.
A large population especially those residing near the coastal area would become homeless. Some people would have access to luxuries of life while the rest of the people would have to fight for the basic human necessities for their families. This un-equality would result in increased crime rate in society. All in all, the humanity would face a tremendous disaster if the necessary measures are not taken in order to control the activities causing global warming. As well as, there should be a struggle to counterbalance its effects.
The effect would be that the autotrophs wouldn’t be able to get enough of the sun’s rays which they use to create the food they need to survive. This would spread to the other animals because the herbivores would need the plants to fuel their bodies, and without the plants, they would die. Once the herbivores die out, the carnivores would die out because they don’t have a source of food to eat. This would cause an extinction of all animals because the bottom of the food chain was taken away destroying the rest of the food chain. Some short term effects for earthworms would be that they Some short term effects for producers would be that they would start dying out because they wouldn’t have any sunlight to produce the food which they need to survive.
What Is a Pesticide? A pesticide is a substance used to avert, annihilate, or repulse pests. Pests can be bugs, mice and different creatures, weeds, organisms, or microorganisms, for example, microbes and infections. A few illustrations of pests are termites creating harm to our homes, dandelions in the grass, and insects on our mutts and felines.
The herbivores would multiply much too quickly to keep track of and eat all of the vegetation down all the way to the roots. With the vegetation gone the herbivores would die due to the food source being gone and then the animals that use the vegetation as shelter would die off because their homes are gone. The soil as result of the vegetation being gone would start the process of soil erosion and the soil would be bad because the nutrient rich topsoil would blow off so it would be unusable land. This would ruin all of that area for wildlife for the foreseeable future. All of the animals in the habitat would die because there is nothing of anything to eat anymore.
