Transcript of Tardigrades

Basic Needs of a Tardigrade
A tardigrade has a very small need for oxygen and same goes with water. The Tardigrade eats: Other tardigrades, Nematodes and Algae.
The Tardigrade is nomadic (it is mobile and has no shelter.) The Tardigrade eats Nematodes and other smalller Tardigrades.
Adapations
The Tardigrade has one adaptation. Cryptobiosis; a state of which the Tardigrade expels all but 2.99 percent of the water in their bodies and stays in this state until the area they are in is habitable again. No other adaptations are needed. (Will be explained later in presentation.)
Abiotic And Biotic Factors That Involve Tardigrades
The Tardigrade lives on biotic and some abiotic things. They live inside dew drops, on the legs of isopods and pretty much everywhere on earth. They are even in your house. So the point is they live on practically everything which means they interact with almost everything.

Mutualism:
There is no form of mutualism that involves Tardigrades.

Parasitism:
The Tardigrade lives as a parasite on Barnacles. They are Parasites because they eat away at the barnacles.

Commensalism:
The Tardigrade lives on the legs of Isopods and it does not affect the Isopod.
