Ecosystems are composed of a variety of abiotic and biotic components that function in an interrelated fashion. Some of the more important components are: soil, atmosphere, radiation from the Sun, water, and living organisms. . Soils are much more complex than simple sediments. They contain a mixtu…re of weathered rock fragments, highly altered soil mineral particles, organic matter, and living organisms. Soils provide nutrients, water, a home, and a structural growing medium for organisms. The vegetation found growing on top of a soil is closely linked to this component of an ecosystem through nutrient cycling. . The atmosphere provides organisms found within ecosystems with carbon dioxide for photosynthesis and oxygen for respiration. The processes of evaporation, transpiration, and precipitation cycle water between the atmosphere and the Earth's surface. . Solar radiation is used in ecosystems to heat the atmosphere and to evaporate and transpire water into the atmosphere. Sunlight is also necessary for photosynthesis. Photosynthesis provides the energy for plant growth and metabolism, and the organic food for other forms of life. . Most living tissue is composed of a very high percentage of water, up to and even exceeding 90%. The protoplasm of a very few cells can survive if their water content drops below 10%, and most are killed if it is less than 30-50%. Water is the medium by which mineral nutrients enter and are translocated in plants. It is also necessary for the maintenance of leaf turgidity and is required for photosynthetic chemical reactions. Plants and animals receive their water from the Earth's surface and soil. The original source of this water is precipitation from the atmosphere. . Ecosystems are composed of a variety of living organisms that can be classified as producers, consumers, or decomposers. Producers or autotrophs, are organisms that can manufacture the organic compounds they use as sources of energy and nutrients. Most producers are green plants that can manufacture their food through the process of photosynthesis. Consumers or heterotrophs get their energy and nutrients by feeding directly or indirectly on producers. We can distinguish two main types of consumers. Herbivores are consumers that eat plants for their energy and nutrients. Organisms that feed on herbivores are called carnivores. Carnivores can also consume other carnivores. Plants and animals supply organic matter to the soil system through shed tissues and death. Consumer organisms that feed on this organic matter, or detritus, are known as detritivores or decomposers. The organic matter that is consumed by the detritivores is eventually converted back into inorganic nutrients in the soil. These nutrients can then be used by plants for the production of organic compounds. . ( Full Answer )
How does the water cycle the nitrogen cycle and the carbon cycle work to make an ecosystem sustainable?
Water Cycle - is the movement of water through Earth's ecosystems. Nitrogen Cycle - is the movement of nitrogen through ecosystems Carbon Cycle - is the flow of carbon as a solid, liquid, or gas through Earth's ecosystems Without all these three we will die and life won't be sustainable.
Two of the key principles of the Constitution were limitedgovernment and separation of powers. Another was federalism, andthe fourth was a system of checks and balances to keep any onebranch of the government from becoming too powerful.
A self sustainable ecosystem is an ecosystem, that takes care of it self e.g. a fish tank would be an un-natural ecosystem since it is made. Not only is is made but also the fishes living their depend on we, the owners of the tank to feed them and clean their tank in order for them to survive. Thus …such an ecosystem is comprised of interdependent organisms (plants,animals and insects) who would through a food chain create an energy flow. ( Full Answer )

Coral Reefs, Pond ecosystems etc. The answer to this question is NOT a desert, tundra, savannah, forest.... these are BIOMES. Ecosystems are smaller, organism-filled environments. These environments are very specific unlike biomes. A biome is a general group of environments.
primary producers ( autotrophs)......cycling?......constant source of energy??(sun). this is a Q on my AP bio summer work grrr and i dont get it rele either =(
In Coastal Ecology, salinity(salt), pH(acidity), DO(dissolved oxygen), waves, wind, currents, and tides are all the abiotic factors. The basic abiotic factors are air, sun, water, and soil. Abiotic Factors Abiotic, meaning not alive, are nonliving factors that affect living organisms. Enviro…nmental factors such habitat (pond, lake, ocean, desert, mountain) or weather such as temperature, cloud cover, rain, snow, hurricanes, etc. are abiotic factors. ( Full Answer )
Producer, Administrator, Entrepreneur, and Integrator.. The Producer is the individual that has the drive and the discipline necessary to see real results produced. Impatient, active, and always busy, the Producer has little time for idle chit-chat. Direct and to the point, typical Producers are …behind-the scenes movers and shakers. Many Producers are attracted to high-intensity departments such as Sales. They are too busy to "waste time" with meetings. They prefer to cut the small talk and get out there to get the job done.. The Administrator ensures that rules are in place and followed, that plans are made and adhered to. Precise and accurate, the Administrator creates methods and procedures to make sure things are done "right". Analytical and logical, Administrators clean up other people's carelessness. They like to keep the organization humming at a steady pace, and are willing to do things more slowly and carefully. Administrators are drawn to tasks that require systemic thinking and precision, such as Accounting.. The Entrepreneur is an ideas person, always asking "why?" or "why not?" A visionary with dreams, plans and schemes, the Entrepreneur leads others to ideas that they would not pursue on their own. Success for an Entrepreneur requires both creativity and risk. They sometimes get bored with short-term tasks, and prefer developing the long-term vision. Entrepreneurs are charismatic, and generate ideas for new projects, new approaches to problems, or even new businesses.. The Integrator is people-oriented. True Integrators value social harmony, and thrive on peacemaking and teamwork. The Integrator's pleasantness is unmistakable. Amiable and empathetic, the Integrator is the first to cooperate in helping with tasks or problems. They prefer to work by consensus, instead of taking a strong position against others. Integrators are attracted to people-oriented occupations like Human Resources. ( Full Answer )

Human systems and Ecosystems are dependent on the current atmosphere for necessary climatic conditions and molecules for life. Tampering with the atmosphere may cause far-reaching damage. Humans and ecosystems have evolved to depend on the current atmosphere. For this reason, new molecules that w…e put into the air can be poisonous to both us and ecosystems, can change the chemistry of the atmosphere, thereby damaging its functions, and may not have any way to break down harmful molecules.. Therefore, man-made gases can negatively affect our respiratory health, the health of ecosystems, and the overall climate of earth.. Sustainable living means maintaining the balance of molecules in the air by:. 1. Not changing any of the rates of biogeochemical cycles that determine atmospheric content, and. 2. Not putting any gases into the air that weren't there to begin with. This means a reduction in Carbon dioxide, sulfur oxides, nitrous oxides, and other types of damaging emissions.. 3. It also means that when we create new gases, we must create ways to dismantle these new gases into natural ones at their source..

The particle model of matter states: 1. All matter is made up of very small particles. The particles are much too small to observe with the naked eye or with a light microscope. 2. There are spaces between the particles. The amount of space between the particles is different for different states of… matter. For example, gases have much more space between particles than solids do. 3. The particles are attracted to each other. The strength of the attraction depends on the type of material. 4. the motion of the particles increases or decreases when the temperature increases or decreases. Extra Information: Solid: Particles are packed together tightly. This means that a solid will hold a definite shape. They particles are constantly vibrating in place. Liquid: Particles are in contract with each other, but can slip and slide past one anther. This means that a liquid takes shape of the container. Gas:Particles have large spacing. Can move freely in all directions. Takes the shape of the container ( Full Answer )

Finally,you need to continuously go over what you have learned to keep itfresh in your mind as you progress. ( Full Answer )
The three principles of sustainability are Solar Energy, Chemical Cycling, and Biodiversity. Solar Energy: Involves the use of the sun to provide life to the plants, thereby providing life (and light and warmth) to this planet. Without the sun, or rather, solar energy produced by the sun, plants …could not grow. Without plants, the consumers of said plants would not survive. This is why Solar Energy is important in regards to the principles of sustainability. Chemical Cycling: Involves the transfer of chemicals such as nutrients and minerals from the soil and solar energy transferring to plants, then transferring to the animal that eats the plant (herbivore), transfer of the same nutrients to the animal that eats the herbivore (carnivore), and the transfer of the nutrients from the carnivore to fungi, and then the nutrients and minerals are transferred back to the soil to be recycled. Chemical Cycling involves producers (such as plants), consumers (the herbivore and carnivore) and decomposers (the fungi/decomposition of the consumer to return to the soil). Biodiversity: The term is short for "Biological Diversity" and refers to the many variances of life on the planet, the natural habitats, and natural resources. Natural life would be animals, plants, and microorganisms. Natural habitat examples are forests, oceans, and deserts. Natural resource examples are air and water. Biodiversity, variances in species, contributes to evolution of said species, and humans rely on biodiversity to survive, just as all animals do as well, along with the planet. ( Full Answer )

How does tourism and urbanization are destroying the mountain ecosystem and what are the measures are to be taken for sustainable mountain development?
Mountains are one of the world's most important tourist destinations. But tourism presents both opportunities and dangers for mountain ecosystems. It is a double edged sword. The clean, cool air and awe-inspiring scenery of mountain areas, combined with the unique customs, arts, crafts and culinary …traditions of the communities that live there, make trips to the mountains attractive holiday options. Tourism revenues have become a primary source of income for many mountain communities. Yet, the influx of visitors into mountain regions poses a threat to these unique and often pristine environments. t can degrade and stress fragile mountain ecosystems, destroying the qualities that make these environments so alluring. Mountains are among the worlds most important repositories of biodiversity, yet construction, pollution and noise all threaten this precious asset. Litter and waste have emerged as key problems, as well as trees being felled to supply timber and fuel wood which again leads to further environmental impacts. The mysticism of sacred mountain sites is often diminished by the numbers of people who come from all over the world to make pilgrimages. Tourism means more transportation networks and links, which can blight the mountain environment, disrupt traditional ways of life. Building ski runs often involves destroying swathes of forest, planting pylons for chairlifts and cable cars and building roads and tunnels. In the Alps, emissions from the millions of vehicles that bring visitors to the slopes threaten the health of trees and worsen the effects of global warming. Paths and ski runs harm sensitive mountain ecosystems and disturb plant and animal life. The following are the measures which can be taken for sustainable development i) Mountains Ecotourism : Ecotourism can help reduce poverty and hunger, a key issue in mountain areas where a high proportion of the world's poor and food-insecure live. It also has considerable potential for strengthening communities and for protecting mountain ecosystems. Can help reduce poverty and hunger, a key issue in mountain areas where a high proportion of the world's poor and food-insecure live. It also has considerable potential for strengthening communities and for protecting mountain ecosystems. ii) Mountain tourism needs to be developed according to specific local conditions and cultures, an approach that will help communities gain a niche in an increasingly competitive market. iii) Policy-makers could favor activities that build on local knowledge and traditions to ensure that tourists respect the natural and cultural diversity of the places they visit and encourage mountain people to view their home as a source of pride. iv) the tourism industry needs to be developed as part of an overall economic development strategy, with diversification to ensure local economies do not become reliant solely on tourism revenue. v) Governments can help mountain communities by investing profits in programmes to ensure sustainable livelihoods for local people. Non-governmental organizations and the private sector can also help get the tourism equation right by offering education and training in responsible tourism practices. ( Full Answer )

1. People make tradeoffs - When there are limited resources, then to get something you want, you would have to give up something else that you want that another wants even more. 2. Choosing one thing means giving up something else - If you buy an object will all of your money, you cannot buy so…mething else. If you choose to commit a crime, you choose to also give up the amount of time out of your life that the justice system says that crime is worth. 3. People respond to incentives - Since most think in terms of value, their behaviors will usually change when the incentives change. Incentives can be positive or negative. Positive would be in the form of coupons, while negative incentives would be in terms of laws and penalties. 4. Sane people think in terms of marginal changes and make a change only if the benefits outweigh the costs. For instance, buying a car would mean having to make car payments, but if it allows you to get a good job, then the payments would be worth it. ( Full Answer )
