List the nonliving things in a coral reef?
Some things that are important for the health of a coral reef are the size of the reef what types of coral are next to each other, pH of the water, how much oxygen is present, movement in the water, toxins in the water, reproduction, temperature of the water, food supply, preditors and the age of the coral. Coral is an animal and not a plant.
Many things are causing coral reef to get bleached. I think there are three main causes. For example, by just touching the coral with your hand or feet, kills the coral polyps. Also, overfishing kills it too. However, global warming is warming the water and not letting the coral reef or creatures of the reef survive. So, those are the ways that coral gets bleached! --Michelle from NJ...(6th gradeee)..........<3!
Individual Organisms- The smallest unit of ecological study is the individual organism. A blue sweetlip fish is one example of an organism in a coral reef environment. Populations- is a group of individual organisms of the same species living in a particular area. A group of sweetlip fish in the reef environment is an example of a population. Communities- The coral reef is home to a collection of living things including fish, coral animals, microscopic…
The weather in the Coral Reef would include the following. There is no direct rainfail to the coral in the coral reef, because it is submerged in water 24/7. (in the ocean) In the Coral Reef it is an average temperature of between 74 and 84 degrees. Again, weather is the Coral Reef is limited, because of the fact that it is in water.
