Energy enters most ecosystems as sunlight. The sunlight is converted to food molecules by producers. The energy is then transferred to each organism that eats a producer. Then to other organisms that eat these consumers getting all the way to the top predator.
2.DESCRIBE HOW PREDATORS AND PREY POPULATIONS EXIST IN AN EQUILIBRIUM. HOW CAN THIS BALANCE BE DISRUPTED?
Predators rely on prey to survive. There must be enough prey such as mice for the owl population to sustain its number. If the number of mice decreases for any reason, the owl will not be able to stay in the area because of lack of food supply. The balance can be disrupted by pollution, over hunting, loss of habitat, increase in another species who competes for the same food.
3.AN ECOSYSTEM MAY HAVE THOUSANDS OF INDIVIDUAL PLANTS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE ENERGY PYRAMID, BUT ONLY SUPPORT A POPULATION OF 20 TOP PREDATORS. WHY IS THIS SO? COULD ONONDAGA LAKE EVER SUPPORT A BALD EAGLE POPULATION OF OVER ONE MILLION INDIVIDUALS? SUPPORT YOUR ANSWER USING SPECIFIC VOCABULARY.
The most energy is available at the producer level of the pyramid. As you move up the pyramid each level has less energy available than the level below.Since so much energy is lost at each level of the pyramid it limits the amount of third level consumers that can be supported at the top of the food pyramid
Onondaga Lake could never support a bald eagle population of 1 million because of the destruction of much of the producer level in the lake as well as the first and second level consumers due to pollution and overfishing. The surrounding area is also more populated and industrialized making it hard for the third level consumers to stay in the area.
4.EXAMINE YOUR LISE OF 20 SPECIES AND FOOD WEB OF 1600. HOW WOULD THIS LIST COMPARE TO ONONDAGA LAKE IN THE 1980'S? LINK 5 SPECIFIC THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED TO ONONDAGA LAKE THAT HAVE LED TO A DECREASE IN BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY.
Five specific things that have led to the decrease in biological diversity are:
5)over hunting and over fishing
The number of species in 1980's would be much smaller than in 1600 because of the the above factors. Because the environment around Onondaga Lake is so modernized and populated that many of the larger species simply would not have the space and food supply anymore even if the lake is cleaner again.
5. DO YOU THINK THE LAKE WILL EVER SUPPORT THE SAME ECOSYSTEM IT DID IN 1600? WHY OR WHY NOT?
Onondaga Lake could not support the same ecosystem as it did in 1600 because of the many changes that have occurred in the last 400 years. First there are too many humans living where the ecosystem had originally flourished. Pollution and industrialization have made the environment small and unable to sustain a large food web.
6. NAME THREE INVASIVE SPECIES THREATENING ONONDAGA LAKE AND EXPLAIN WHY THEY CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS TO THE ECOSYSTEM.
1. Round Gobies-Russian minnow that eats eggs of bass and perch
2.water chestnut-asian aggressive invasive plant that clogs waterways and are a breeding ground for bacteria.
3.Emrald Ash Borer-beetle native to Asia kills ash trees
7.WHY DOES ONONDAGA LAKE NEED TO BE CLEANED UP?
There are many reasons why Onondaga Lake needs to be cleaned up. One reason is the lake is second most polluted lake in the world. For a small lake it is quite a big human made problem that needs to be fixed. The second reason to clean the lake is to create a healthy environment for the entire ecosystem. When the land, lake and wildlife are protected and healthy humans are too.
The third reason to clean up the lake is to be sure the future is preserved for the next generations to experience nature and wildlife.
8. CHEMICAL COMPANIES ARE NOT SOLEY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEMISE OF ONONDAGA LAKE. LIST 4 OTHER MAJOR SOURCES OF POLLUTION THAT HAVE IMPACTED THE ONONDAGA LAKE ECOSYSTEM.
1)sewage and human waste
3)global warming and carbon emissions
9. LIST 5 DANGEROUS CHEMICALS FOUND IN ONONDAGA LAKE AND EXPLAIN THE EFFECTS THESE CHEMICALS ON HUMANS AND ORGANISMS.
1)mercury-neurological and cardiac problems.
2)phosphorus-increases algae growth in lake, depletes oxygen levels
3)ammonia and nitrite-toxic to fish interferes with reproduction
4)salt wastes-chloride sodium and calcium-
5)chlorinated benzene -toxic to plants, wild life ad people
10.HOW ARE CLEAN UP EFFORTS TODAY DIFFERENT FROM CLEAN UP EFFORTS THAT BEGAN IN THE 1970'S? HOW HAS PUBLIC OPINION INFLUENCED THESE PLANS?
In the 1970's , The Clean Water Act was just past. Rules ad regulations were being enforced to companies who were responsible for the pollution of the lake. More recently actual cleaning of the wetlands, mudboils, dredging and a more complete cleaning is talking place.. SOCIAL STUDIES QUESTIONS 1. WHY DID AMERICAN CITIES GROW SO RAPIDLY DURING THE INDUSTRIAL
American cities grew rapidly during the industrial revolution because of the development of transportation like the Erie Canal and Railroad. Natural resources could be developed and transported to other cities. Such as salt production in Syracuse.
2.AS CITIES GROW, WHAT SERVICES MUST BE PROVIDED FOR HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELL BEING OF THE PUBLIC THAT YOU WOULD NOT NEED IN A SMALL VILLAGE? WHOSE RESPONSIBILITY IS IT TO PROVIDE THESE SERVICES?
As cities grow so does the population and the need to provide for the population. Sewage and water facilities are needed, hospitals or clinics are needed, Schools and Libraries are needed. Fire departments and Police departments to handle the large number of people. In the past it was religious groups and large companies, then it was the local government and state government.
3. WHAT PUBLIC WORKS PROJECTS WERE PERFORMED IN SYRACUSE THROUGHOUT THE LATE 1800'S AND EARLY 1900'S?
Syracuse Public Works Projects were as follows:
First telegraph 1840, First Savings Bank1850, First telephone 1879, Police department 1839, First large fire department 1859, High school 1868, Syracuse University 1870.First public hospital 1870,
4.TECHONOLOGICAL ADVANCES CAN PROVIDE BENEFITS AND ECONOMIC STRAINS ON SOCIETY. EXPLAIN HOW,CITING SPECIFIC EXAMPLES FROM THE CITY OF SYRACUSE.
Benefits of technological advances were better living conditions, better education, more jobs and prosperity, In Syracuse, with the industrial revolution came railroads, Erie canal and salt transport. Syracuse had Syracuse University open 1870. Public hospital 1870, museums , libraries, sports.
5. WHY ARE MANY CITIES LIKE SYRACUSE STILL USING ANTIQUATED,SUBSTANDARD FACILITIES, LIKE SEWERS, THAT WERE BUILT 60+ YEARS AGO? USE METRO WASTE WATER SYSTEM AS AN EXAMPLE.
The original sewer system Syracuse was built between 1875 and 1950. The system had waste discharge directly into area streams and drainage ditches. It was not upgraded until the late 1950's to present. It is expensive and time consuming to have the system improved. Now the waste water is treated in three stages to remove solid waste, then bacteria consumes dissolved organic waste, finally tertiary treatment since 2004 is a state of the art process for removing ammonia ad phosphorus and sterilizes bacteria. The cleaned waste water is then discharged to Onondaga lake.
6. WHY WERE THERE VERY FEW RESTRICTIONS AND REGULATIONS ENFORCED ON CORPORATIONS, LIKE SOLVAY PROCESS, IN THE UNITED STATES FROM THE LATE 1800'S AND EARLY 1900'S?
There were very few laws and regulations placed on companies at this time regarding environmental protection. The companies provided jobs, money and prosperity which was most important to cities and communities..
7. EXPLAIN THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT TOWARD BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY DURING THE 1800'S.
The government supported business and industry because it made the country strong and wealthy.
8. WHAT CONDITIONS SPURRED THE GROWTH OF INDUSTRY IN THE UNITED STATES IN GENERAL AND SPECIFICALLY IN SYRACUSE?
The availability of natural resources and a way to transport then all over the country. For Syracuse there was the salt industry which made them one of the biggest suppliers in the United States until 1900. Syracuse was also a large supplier of soda ash. This made our city prosperous.
9.WHAT ARE THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE IMPACTS OF INDUSTRIALIZATION IN THE UNITED STATES, AND SPECIFICALLY SYRACUSE?
The positive impacts of industrialization are more jobs, better standard of living, better education and healthcare, The negative impacts of industrialization are pollution, overpopulation, stripping of natural resources. 1.www.students.sunyocc.edu-History and Summary of METRO Syracuse.
