Transcript of The Everglades
An example of commensalism in the Everglades is the oyster and the red mangrove. The oyster takes shelter in the mangroves branches, and the mangrove is neither helped nor harmed.
By: Ethan Runyan
Sawgrass is an example of a primary producer of the everglades
It grows in fresh and brackish-water marshes
Can grow to be 6-7 feet tall
Gray-green in color
Small spikes on leaves for protection
An example of a first-order consumer in the Everglades is an iguana
Can grow to be 6.5 feet long and can weigh up to 11 pounds
They live in the trees
They eat leaves, flowers, and fruit
A top-level predator in the Everglades is the American Alligator
The average size for a male is 11 feet long and 1,000 pounds
They live in the swamps and marshes of the Everglades
They eat fish, frogs, birds, and any mammals that come near the water
Symbiosis in the Everglades- Mutualism
An example of mutualism in the Everglades is the alligators digging holes in the dry season that bring up groundwater. Small animals live in the holes to get water, and the alligator eats them. So the small animals get shelter and water, and the alligator gets free food.
The Florida Everglades are the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States
They are home to many rare and endangered species such as the manatee, American Crocodile, and the Florida Panther
An interaction could be an alligator feeding on a deer that came to the shoreline of a marsh for a drink.
Another could be a frog that lives in a pond coming up onto the land and eating a dragonfly.
Symbiosis in the Everglades- Parasitism
An example of parasitism in the Everglades is the strangler fig and any type of tree. The fig grows onto and drains the nutrients out of the tree, eventually killing it.
