Presentation Transcript

  1. Ecosystems Gameshow • One question per round • Teams mark the others during each round • Make sure your answers are complete • All teams can score during each round!

  2. What is a habitat?

  3. What is a habitat? Where one particular plant/animal lives

  4. List 3 reasons why producers and photosynthesis are so important?

  5. List 3 reasons why producers and photosynthesis are so important? • They produce food for all organisms in food chains/webs and ecosystems. • Without them there are no other organisms. • They produce oxygen for us to breathe.

  6. What is made during photosynthesis?

  7. What is made during photosynthesis? Glucose/sugar and Oxygen

  8. What is a community?

  9. What is a community? All the living organisms/populations in an ecosystem

  10. Describe 2 reasons why decomposers are so important.

  11. Describe 2 reasons why decomposers are so important. 1. They break down dead and decaying matter and then release important nutrients back into the soil. 2. Without them, producers wouldn’t grow properly and thus the whole food web/food chain would collapse.

  12. What is bioaccumulation?

  13. What is bioaccumulation? The accumulation or build-up of toxins in organisms.

  14. What is an organism?

  15. What is an organism? A living thing.

  16. What is the similarity between ecosystems and communities?

  17. What is the similarity between ecosystems and communities? Both contain all the living things or populations in an ecosystem.

  18. The organism at the bottom of a food chain is usually a(n)?

  19. The organism at the bottom of a food chain is usually a? Producer

  20. Who is most affected by bioaccumulation?

  21. Who is most affected by bioaccumulation? Organisms (especially predators) at the top of a food chain.

  22. What is the similarity between populations and communities?

  23. What is the similarity between populations and communities? Communities contain all the populations in an ecosystem.

  24. Construct a food chain using the following biomass pyramid.

  25. Construct a food chain using the following biomass pyramid. Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk

  26. Which organism would be the 2nd most affected by bioaccumulation?Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird Sparrowhawk

  27. Which organism would be the 2nd most affected by bioaccumulation?Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird Sparrowhawk Bluebird

  28. What would happen to the caterpillar population if the Bluebird population suddenly decreased? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk

  29. What would happen to the caterpillar population if the Bluebird population suddenly decreased? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird Sparrowhawk It would increase.

  30. What would happen to the oak tree if the Bluebird population suddenly decreased? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk

  31. What would happen to the oak tree if the Bluebird population suddenly decreased? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk It would decrease in size.

  32. What would happen to the Sparrowhawk population if the Bluebird population suddenly decreased? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk

  33. What would happen to the Sparrowhawk population if the Bluebird population suddenly decreased? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk It would decrease in size.

  34. What would happen eventually happen to the Bluebird population after it’s size decreased? Why? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk

  35. What would happen eventually happen to the Bluebird population after it’s size decreased? Why? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk It would increase again, because there would be more caterpillars for the blue tits to eat and less Sparrowhawks to eat the blue tits.

  36. List the producers of:

  37. List the producers of: Algae, Sedge

  38. List the secondary consumers:

  39. List the secondary consumers of: Back Swimmer, Frog, Centipede, Damselfly, Lizard

  40. List the herbivores:

  41. List the herbivores: Tadpole, Moth, Ant, Maned Geese, Dragonfly

  42. Who would be most affected by bioaccumulation? Why?

  43. Who would be most affected by bioaccumulation? Why? Kookaburra, Lizard and Back Swimmer because they are carnivores at the top of the food chain, so the toxins will build up in it.

  44. List the decomposers:

  45. List the decomposers: Daphnia, Centipede, Bacteria

  46. Who would be least affected by bioaccumulation? Why?

  47. Who would be least affected by bioaccumulation? Why? Algae and Sedge because they are producers at the bottom of the food web, so toxins are just starting to enter the food web.

  48. What is the habitat of the tadpole?

  49. What is the habitat of the tadpole? The water.
