Transcript of Marine biome project

MARINE BIOME The marine biome is the largest in the world, and it located in the five oceans, namely the Arctic, Antarctic, Indian, Pacific and Atlantic DOMINANT ANIMALS SHRIMP RAZOR CLAM DIAMONDBACK
TURTLE MARINE FOOD WEB The water in this region is very cold (around 3° C), highly pressured, high in oxygen content, but low in nutritional content. The abyssal zone supports many species of invertebrates and fishes. Temperature Range Human threats Littering around the ocean and polution.Over fishing will cause the fish to go extinct. LOCATION ANIMAL ADAPTATIONS Adapting to water pressure

Dealing with wind, waves and changing temperatures

Getting enough light

Regulating salt intake

Obtaining oxygen PLANT ADAPTATIONS They live near the surface because they need the sun for photosynthesis. Some nutrients are absorbed directly from water. Shark: Between 30 and 80 percent of a shark's flesh is made of water, and a protein network gives it structure.
Sea Turtle: The sea turtle's shell, or "carapace" is streamlined for swimming through the water.
Sea Anemone: The helpless prey is then guided into the mouth by the tentacles.
Jellyfish: They have developed the ability to move rather than just drift, jetting at up to four knots through the water.
Bottlenose Dolphin: Bottlenose dolphins are well known as the intelligent and charismatic stars of many aquarium shows. DOMINANT PLANTS Kelp: Kelp is a group of large sea algae that is commonly referred to as seaweed
Green Algae: These are found in large numbers with the dominant pigment being green chlorophyll.
Diatoms: These are groups of relatively unknown microscopic plant cells with glassy shell-like structure.
Coral: Coral is not just a plant, it is also a home for the fish that are around it.
Sea Grass: They help maintain water clarity by trapping fine sediments and particles with their leaves. SEASONS There are no seasonal changes to the
marine biome because it depends on
where it is. Cold at the poles, warm at the equator. It is usually about the same
temperature all year round. about 39 degrees. RAINFALL RANGE Precipitation, above water, is approximately 60 - 250 inches per year depending upon the location.Large areas of the tropical ocean get more than 3 meters or 115 inches of rain each year or about 8 mm a day. TIANNA LITMAN
