Rivers and Streams
Transcript of Rivers and Streams
an elevated area. Often, water trickles down the mountain until it rushes over an edge- a waterfall. The rivers and stream often work with their surroundings to have a peaceful area, but sometimes things go wrong. Video! The climate of the river or stream depends on where you are. If you are in the north or somewhere cold, the water will be colder. There is also a lot of rain around the waterways, especially in the spring, which is why it often floods. Sometimes trees of debris get logged in the river or stream, and sometimes beavers build dams on a river. More plants, algae, and fish can be found near the middle of the river or stream, too. Some aquatic plants that live in a river or stream are algae, mosses, and some submerged plants with leaves. Some plants that live beside the river or stream include wild flowers and grasses, or small trees. The type of soil can be a clay sort of compilation, or is can be dirty or rocky. The terrain also depends on where you are. Often, a river or stream is surrounded by wildlife of plants and animals. Some animals that live off or near the river or stream include frogs, salamanders, fish like salmon and trout, wildlife animals like bears, raccoons, beavers, and even mountain lions, and winged animals like bats, herons, and hawks. Because animals use the river or stream for a water source, there aren't any changes of behavior of physical adaptations. Animals need this Biome to survive. Rivers and streams move in one direction. They often take twists and turns throughout their journeys to a larger body of water. http://www.videopediaworld.com/video/31595/River-Biomes-Plant-Life-in-the-River-Water Copy this link to watch a short video about plant life in the rivers and streams. When rivers flood, it can throw off the balance of the surrounding area. When a river or stream becomes clogged full of algae, or debris, it can cause problems. If animals are being over-hunted, that too can throw off the natural balance of the biome. To use Prezi: If you cannot read everything in a box or a picture is blury, you can use your mouse scroller to scroll backwards. If you need to move over slightly, you can click on the screen and drag to where you want to go. A symbiotic relationship of the biome would be something like the fish that depend on the algae and the water. Or Other animals that depend on the water to survive.
