Transcript of Sonoran Desert Biome Project Prezi

By T.J. Armendariz The Sonoran Desert Biome Project Climate Zone Carnivores Omnivores Herbivores An Ocelot's Food chain/energy pyramid (one secondary consumer, primary consumer, and producer listed) Habitat, niche, and competition The Sonoran Desert is in the Temperate and Tropical zones. Brady Pincushion Cactus
Sagurao cactus (only grows naturaly in the sonoran desert)
Mariposa Lilies
Mexican Gold Poppies
Dasies Octillo
Paloverde tree
an individual plant might be one Brady Pincushion Cactus
all plants listed above are native Ocelot (endangered species)
Coyote (prey on almost anything)
Couche's Spadefoot Toad
Western Dimondback Rattlesnake
Elf Owl
Giant Desert Hairy Scorpion (all scorpions world wide glow if you shine a black light on them)
The one insectivore I found was the Palid bat (preys on any insect)
All animals listed above are native
An individual might be one ocelot Chuckwalla
Short-Horned Grasshopper (invertibre)
Sonoran Pronghorn
Desert Pupfish
Merriam's Kangaroo Rat
Butterflies (Monarch butterflies migrate through here)
All animals just listed are prey Roadrunner
Knit Fox
Gila Woodpecer
Cactus Wren
Desert Tortise
Collard Peccary (Javelina) (lives in a herd) Biome Information The Sonoran
Desert is a

the Riperian Habitat
the Arizona Upland region
the valley floor regions the Niches are:
the Pinacate Beetle better known as the stink bug eat rotting things particularly plants
Carnivores keep herbivores from growing over populated
herbivores keep plants from growing over populated Competition in the Sonoran Desert. The Sonoran Pronghorn and roadrunner might compete for water. Ocelot Bibliography Plagens, Michael. "RIPARIAN." arizonensis.org. 4/6/13. 11/14/11. ‎http://www.arizonensis.org/sonoran/fieldguide/riparian.html

(I cannot underline or indent in prezi) an example of mutualism symbiosis in the Sonoran Desert is a woodpecker family eating the bugs that wood kill the sagurao cactus they live in while the sagurao provides them a safe home an example learned behavior is a knit fox has to learn to hunt Inherited behaviors/innate/instinct an example is a rattlesnake rattling its rattle when something gets too close structural adaptations birds can enlarge their blood vessels heading to their legs to cool down limiting factors three limiting factors are
little water
few plants in some areas
it's very hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Resources plants
other animals
(when it rains)water a sagurao's life cycle fruit grow fruit split open and reveal over 2,000 seeds fruit and seeds fall seeds need nurse plants to grow start to grow
arms at 65-75 reach maturity at 125 die at 150-175 an ocelot's life cycle born usualy without any siblings 15-18 days later they open their eyes leave their dens at 3 months leave their moms at 2 years they can live up to 20 years in captivity life expectancy the life expectancy of a sagurao is between 150 and 175 years mimicry in the Sonoran Desert the fringe toes lizard mimes sand Extinct and threatened animals, and animal comunities No research data found on these three topics. Population The estimated jaguar population is between 80 and 120 (the only jaguar population in the United States) Exotic organism and
mating an exotic organism is buffelgrass the Ocelot mates year round and usualy only gives birth to one young every other year Hibernation the Sonoran desert tortoise hibernates in winter Sonoran Food Web
