Transcript of "Finding Nemo" Biology Project

"Finding Nemo" Biology Project
Ecological address
The supports a diversity of life, including many vulnerable or endangered species, some of which may be endemic to the reef system.

Nemo lives in a Symbiotic home called an anemone.
Biotic and Abiotic Factors
Biotic factors
are the biological influences on organisms within the ecosystem.
These include the species with which an organism might interact, including birds, trees, mushrooms, etc.

And the
Abiotic factors
are the physical, or nonliving factors that shape the ecosystem.
For example the climate shows factors such as: temperature, precipitation, and humidity.
After absorbing a large proportion of the carbon dioxide released by human activities
, our oceans are becoming acidic.

Rising Sea Levels:
The amount of light reaching offshore plants and algae dependent on photosynthesis could be reduced, while coastal habitats are already being flooded.
Community Interactions
(the preying of one animal on others)
An example of predation in Finding Nemo, includes the part where the barracuda eats Coral.
By: Sarah Morales and Melanie Díaz
A is the combination of the physical and biological conditions in which an organism lives.
Plants (coral, algae)
The humans (fishers and divers)


Abiotic Factors in Finding Nemo:
(Interaction: Sunlight helps plants grow and they use it for photosynthesis)
Great Barrier Reef
Niche In Finding Nemo...
Nemo was
a clown fish who escaped being eaten by a barracuda,
even though his other siblings were eaten.

He was
maimed with an abnormally small right fin,
but survived.

He proved that
what is important to a species
is not only survival, but
survival of its offsprings,
making them fit enough to live and finally reproduce.
(is when both organisms are benefited by each other)

Clownfish and sea anemones have a mutualistic (also symbiotic) relationship:
The sea anemone protects the clownfish from predators, as well as providing food through the scraps left from the anemone's meals and occasional dead anemone tentacles.
–In return, the clownfish defends the anemone from its predators, and parasites.
Biotic Factors in
Finding Nemo:
(interaction between two different organisms living in close physical association, typically to the advantage of both)

The clown fish in the movie reside in coral–or symbiotic home–which allows them to clean the anemone by eating the algae and other food leftovers on them.

(Place: Coral Reef, Indo- Pacific Ocean)
(is when one organism benefits, and the other is neither harmed nor benefited)

Commensalism occurs with the clownfish and their anemone home. The clownfish benefit by getting protection from others since they are the only ones who have immunity to anemone stings.

(is the relationship between two different species where one is a parasite and benefits and the other is harmed)

Sydney has a humid subtropical climate with warm, sometimes hot summers and mild winters, with rainfall spread throughout the year.
Clown fish are native to warmer waters of the Indian and Pacific oceans, including the Great Barrier Reef and the Red Sea.
Nemo doesn't live in another climate because...
Finding Nemo is set in Sydney,
Australia, where the biome is:

temperate broadleaf and
mixed forests.

Relatively warm
rainy climates,
sometimes with a distinct
dry season.

These forests are characterized by
4 layers:
1) a canopy
composed of mature full-sized dominant species.
a slightly lower layer of
mature trees,
3) a shrub layer
4) understory layer of grasses
and other herbaceous plants.
Relation to our lives:
"Finding Nemo"
has shown how humans have impacted Nemo's community
(and the ocean community in general)

They abducted Nemo from his community
to live in an artificial habitat.

Shows how
human waste is dumped into the ocean
and endangering the living species there.

Primary and Secondary Succession
The process by which communities are established, develop and change in ecosystems is called
There are two types of succession:

1) Primary succession
occurs in an area that has not been previously occupied by a community.

2) Secondary succession
occurs in areas that have been disturbed. The causes of these disturbances may be natural or human-made.
