Coral reefs are involute and various environment. They are maybe a standout amongst the most captivating and brilliant biological communities to be found in the marine environment. They are extremely remarkable from numerous points of view. coral reefs play numerous weight shafts in the marine world. They must have particular conditions to be made, and to survive.
A. Underwater leaves: This kinds of leaves often exist on the plants whose whole body grow underwater in the water stream. As some region in water stream is deep, which is about 4-5metres, so the light diffused to the bottom is few. In order to absorb sufficient defused light, this kind of leave is very thin and just appear as strands of algae so as to increasing the surface area for absorbing maximum amount of sun light. B.
Color: Red tides are not necessarily always red. The color may vary from deep shades of red to pink, orange, brown or even yellow. http://www.livescience.com/34461-red-tide.html Causes: Algae require sufficient nutrients. Warm temperature and ample sunlight to grow. Therefore, they reside in the upper 200 to 300 feet (60-90meters) of ocean water.
The Island Biogeography theory and species richness in different tidal pools on St Lucia coast lines By: Daniela Maia student number: 201406936 Introduction Islands are most commonly known as landmasses that are surrounded by a body of water, in this case the ocean is the body of water. Islands, however, are also isolated areas within another area that bear different species that are rare as well as unique in comparison to the surrounding environment (habitat within a habitat) says (Guo, 2015) . According to Thornton (2007), there are two types of islands, namely; continental islands and oceanic islands. Continental islands are formed when land is isolated within the mainland. Lakes, mountain tops and man created reserves are seen as continental islands.
Cuttlefish are marine organisms which classified into animalia kingdom. They are grouped into spiida order and cephalopoda class. The common cuttlefish are scientifically known as the Sepia officinalis. The cuttlefish fish possess W-shaped pupils, 2 tentacles which consist of the denticulated suckers. They vary in sizes.
Aquatic imagery is the second most common depictions found on the ancient Maya huipil. Similarly like quatrefoil shapes, aquatic imagery has been depicted in abstract and figurative forms and is often depicted in two-dimensional fields and linear bands (Looper and Tolles 24). The zigzag, the wavy line, lines of dots, double rings, stacks and scrolls are common aquatic imagery found in Maya art including in textiles. In many instances, these designs are accompanied by dots illustrating water droplets. The twisted cord is another example of this aquatic design commonly seen in textiles.
Higher numbers of the species occur at coastal waters with increasing temperature and depth. Predominant species in seawater includes B. licheniformis followed by B. subtilis and B. plumilus (Bonde, 1981). Species of the genus bacillus found in fresh water represents most of bacteria of soil origin (Austin and Allen-Austin, 1983). Species are in fresh waters are common in sediments and include B. cereus, B. firmis, B. megaterium, and B. pumilus (Allen et al, 1983). Various species of the genus bacillus have been isolated from the faeces of animals.
Notes: M They are Pelagic, this means that they inhabit the upper layers of the sea. It has an air bubble inside of its stomach so as a result, they float on the surface of the ocean. They float upside down by using the surface tension of the water to stay up. Due to them floating, wind or current can take them. They are also camouflage.
Grazer species Grazer species are especially important in coral reefs. Their principal tasks include the modification of primary production to fish-based trophic pathways, the mediation of competition between corals and microalgae, and the provision of an appropriate settlement base for new corals (Hughes 1994). Thus, coral reefs without grazer species often end up covered by algae. Due to the degradation of coral reefs, populations of reef fish that perform key ecological functions such as grazer species decline, which then initiates a positive feedback and causes more coral reef degradation (Pratchett et al. 2014).
When I glance around I see the oceans dark blue shimmering body of saltwater, and tall dark brown palm trees. The Bahamas three major landforms are, the largest point which is positioned on Cat Island, where limestone rock rises to 63 m over sea level, The islands were mostly made by the disintegration of seashells and coral reefs, and low scrub covers much of their surface. The landform look like, the Bahamas are a class of nearly 700 circle like coral islands, and little, low islands composed largely of sand or coral.The islands were mostly made by the disintegration of seashells
With the addition of all the coastal islands this amounts to more than 47,000 km. The coastal landscape ranges from broad sandy beaches to rocky cliffs and mangrove swamps. 1.1 1.2 Aim: The aim is to present a field report, based on primary data, on the natural processes and landforms, human use and management issues associated
Aim: To investigate the distribution of two different species of barnacles, the acorn barnacle (Chamaesipho columna) and the brown barnacle (Chamaesipho brunnea) at low, mid and high tide. The data collected is from Siren’s Rock, Island Bay. This will be done by looking at both the abiotic and biotic factors of their environment. Barnacles are under the crustacean family, the same family as crayfish and crabs (Ultimate Visual Dictionary of Science). The pattern found on the rocky shore was a zonation pattern.
