The primary consumer only obtains around 10% of the producer’s energy as they may not eat the whole entity or energy might be lost through waste. The population of the largest and most significant vertebrate plants feeds, including sea turtles, dugongs, have been severely decimated by the impacts of humans on the reef. The loss of these vital animals has and will more severely disturb the coral reef food web in a significant manner, although the specific impacts are not clear
As humans expand they are producing more waste and need a place for it to go. In some countries, people just pump the waste into the water, as a result it is harming the manatees. The waste that humans are pumping into the ocean is causing toxic algae which the manatee eats and it makes the sick or could kill them. The waste from humans hurts the manatee also by
On the other hand, the importance of Daphnia in the food chain is significant as Daphnia is preyed upon by several aquatic organisms such as tadpoles, salamanders, aquatic insects, and many of small fish species. Ultimately, and by the end of the chain, food fish for human consumption could be affected as a result of the negative changes in Daphnia
Green algae are a very diverse group that are photosynthetic, aquatic, plant like organisms that have a very simple reproductive structure. Green algae growth is a healthy and natural part of a lake’s ecosystem but the addition of nitrogen and phosphorus from fertilizers and other pollutants can cause an excessive growth problem for some lakes.
They are very unique in many different ways and a crucial support for human life. They play also a very important role in the marine life such as giving shelter and food for millions of species including fishes, crabs, or shrimps. They support 33% of marine fish species. They also have specific and certain conditions to be formed, and to survive. They are also known as the “rainforest of the oceans” because of its huge diversity.
They have social impacts, such as their endangerment of people and domesticated pets that are unaware of the risk they pose, and the blocking of drains and fouling of swimming pools. They also pose a health hazard as they are known to feed on human faeces, which means that they can acquire human diseases, such as Salmonella, and pass them on through their eggs. They impact the economy by placing a significant strain on the financial resources of land managers because of the ongoing need for research and management. Due to the decline in bush tucker species because of cane toad consumption, such as monitor lizards, snakes and turtles can affect Aboriginal communities culturally and economically. Lastly, there are ethical issues relating to the methods of collecting, euthanasia and disposing of the toads.
Loggerhead turtles are species generalists. Loggerheads compete with other carnivorous predators whose diets overlaps with theirs. For example, juvenile loggerheads and Kemp’s ridleys in waters around Long Island have substantial diet overlap. Interspecific competition also occurs for nest sites for beaches shared with other sea turtles species; however, this problem was likely greater in the past before modern turtle population declines. The diet of loggerheads includes many species that are harvested by humans and consequently decreases in food resources can result in sublethal effects in the form of decreased growth rates and reproductive output (Bjorndal 2003).
As phytoplankton begin to grow and multiply, small fish eat them, then the larger animals begin to eat those smaller animals. The food chain of the ocean begins phytoplankton, then comes zooplankton, next is the predatory zooplankton, fourth is the filter feeders and last is the predatory fish. Phytoplankton is sometimes called the grass of the sea because
We can hunt, kill, and eat other animals such as fish or deer, or can eat chicken from a grocery store or restaurant. We also have mutualistic relationships with organisms, like house pets. Competition occurs between humans for resources, even mates. Interactions between organisms, are the nature of life and have a large impact on the functioning and health of
1. Why are the rainforests so important to us? What are some of the valuable resources that they provide us with? The rainforest helps reduces the climate changes worldwide. Also there are a ton of species living in all kinds of rainforests.
