Transcript of Wetlands

Energy Pyramid of Trophic Levels
The Slug & The Snail
Slug
- Under/eating a leaf when first found
-Reacted to stimuli by contracting
into a ball
-Expanded/stretched to move
Snail
- Did not react to stimuli
- Believed dead (found in oily water)

Wetlands
GPS Coordinates: 41.41 degrees latitude, 81.89 degrees longitude
Located by a stream, off of a path
Stream leading into much larger pond
Surrounded by tall grass, and bushes
Wetland: land consisting of marshes or swamps
Chemical Testing of the Water
Temperature: 16.3°C
pH: 7; neutral
Dissolved oxygen: 1 mg/L
Salinity (amount of dissolved salt): 0.1 parts per billion (ppb)
Nitrate: 1 mg/L
Any drastic changes in these limiting factors can be very dangerous to the organisms that are dependent on water for live because they are not use to the different chemical levels.

Importance
Organisms can survive within a specific pH and temperature range. Although temperature and pH are abiotic factors in an ecosystem, they greatly influence living organisms.
Symbiotic Relationship
-Small fish hide behind thick pond weeds to protect themselves from larger fish
Behavior Chart of Slug
Effect of Relationship on Both Organisms
-The small fish is benefiting from the protection of the plants
-The fish is not helping or harming the plants
-Commensalism
Wetlands:
Behavior
At first, when being picked up, the slug was in shock and was afraid, and did not move
After we stopped moving it and its leaf, the slug started to uncurl
Once it felt safe again, it began to move
It was most likely trying to get away from us, and back to where he was before (under a leaf)
Evolutionary Significance
It was a chilly and rainy day
Also, the weather has been getting progressively colder
The slug was most likely under the leaf, trying to get protection from the rain, and maybe the cold
The slug may also have been eating the leaf
