What is the effect of limiting factors in a local ecosystem?
If a species is ecologically dominant, it dominates the biomass of the ecosystem (think big dipterocarp trees dominating a rainforest). These organisms influence the ecosystem due to their huge size or enormous number. Other organisms rely on these species and removing them often has a domino effect of local extinctions.
Organism: An organism is a single individual animal, plant, fungus, or other living thing Ecosystem Within each biome are many ecosystems. Inside an ecosystem, living and nonliving factors interact to form a stable system. An ecosystem is smaller than a biome and includes only organisms and their local environment. i hope this helped xx

Biotic factors are living creatures or their remains that have an effect on a given situation. Abiotic factors are nonliving, nonorganic items that have an effect on a given situation. For instance, in describing the loss of frogs from a pond, a biotic factor may be the introduction of a non-native species that hunted the frogs to local extinction. An abiotic factor may be an increase in water pH caused by increased sulfuric acid levels…

In what way are the founder effect and a genetic bottleneck similar in their effect on the genetic diversity of a local population?
There are so many ways a city affects the local ecosystem. Deforestation or land clearing for new homes or city areas: This dislocates all organisms in the area and changes the landscape. Pollution from many sources: Cars, buildings, machines etc. all add to pollution and change the air of the area. Detergents, cleaners, oil, etc. contaminate groundwater. This affects the biodiversity of the area. Littering adds new items to the area. All aspects of the…
