Lets Move To Texas Llano Uplift
Transcript of Lets Move To Texas Llano Uplift
Llano Uplift Abiotic Factors Characteristics of the climate
Rainfall- 24-32 inches of rain per year
Elevation- 825-2250 feet above sea level By: Ayns Rodriguez, 4th Period May 17, 2012 Biotic Factors Enchanted Rock Precambian Igneous Rocks Llano River Wild Turkey Fox Sparrow Texas Horned Lizard Weathering
Soil is predominantly coarse textured sands produced by weathered granite over 1000 years
Enchanted Rock- Granite exfoliation Deposition
Eroded particles are dumped into a new location
Eroded soil and rock is deposited in the upper South Texas Plains eco-region
Deposition of llanite
Metamorphed sedimentary rock Catastrophic Events Predict which event could happen? Highest risk of flash floods Enviromental Impact on eco-region An Actual Catastrophic Event Texas Flood of 1935 1935 Flooded the near the City of Llano Ecological Succession Erosion
Weathered rock particles are carried away
Erosion on Enchanted Rock by wind and water
Eroding of soil and rock
Erosion of sediments Watershed in eco-region
Llano River Body Type: River Location
Near Edwards Plateau and Llano Uplift
Northwest of Austin Watershed

Turned the city to an island Bacteria
Impaired Macrobenthos Community
Chlorine Dioxide In some places primary succession is oocuring
For example Enchanted Rock In others, secondary succesion is occuring Lichens are able to form on rocks around the area Stop dumping waste
Lessen the use of fertilizers and pestisides Cause of succession:
Nature Temporarily turned the city to an island
