Transcript of Freshwater Biomes: Wetlands (Marshes, Swamps and Bogs)

Freshwater Biome: Wetlands (Marshes, Swamps, and Bogs)
This map shows where wetlands are. As you can see, they are very scattered, but there are still many.
This chart lists some of the examples of abiotic and biotic factors in the ecosystem of a wetland.
The picture here is the symbiosis of the monarch butterfly and the toxic milkweed. This is a type of commensalism. In this, the monarch butterfly sucks the toxins from the milkweed, so predators won't eat it. If the predators do, they will have toxins in them. Yet, nothing is given in return to the milkweed.

This picture demonstrates the mallard and the crocodiles' mutualistic relationship. The mallard gets a meal by eating the bad junk in the crocodiles mouth, and the crocodile gets clean teeth
This picture demonstrates the catfish and the leeches' parasitism. The leech feeds on the blood of the fish, while it slowly dies.
This picture shows what happens when industrial building are being added into wild habitats. This means that we are killing wild animals everyday. Every building we have made impacted the animals living there, because it will be harder for them to live in those locations, especially if that will be the site of a new city.
Biome Locations
Environmental issues: Human Caused: Industrial Factors
On other big and important topic is water pollution. If people throw trash and litter into the wetlands, it will hurt the water, which will affect both the plants and animals living there.
Environmental Issues: Human Caused: Water Pollution
This picture shows people clearing out the area and getting ready to grow crops. Growing crops is great, but when you destroy an animal's habitat to do it, then it is bad. This is because people are going to end up using those crops anyway, and the animals previously there died, so basically, its a massive death zone.

Abiotic Factors
Regularly 40-80 in temperature
The overall average is 76 degrees
About 40 in. of rain per year
Moist, Coarse-grained Soil
Lots of water, sunlight, and many other abiotic factors
Water is provided mostly from runoff
Grassy and sometimes no grass, so only soil

Fun Facts
Only 3% of the on earth comes from the freshwater biomes

99% of all freshwater is either ice or in an aquifer

The largest wetland is in South America (Mostly Brazil, but also Paraguay and Bolivia) and is called Pantanal

The Nile River is a part of the freshwater biomes

Freshwater biomes are roughly 20% of the world
Tough skin for protection
Renewable and sharp teeth for biting
Webbed feet to help swim
Can hold their breath for long times to hide
Animal Life Example 1: The Alligator
Animal Example 2: The Beaver
Webbed feet
Broad flat tail for swimming help
Waterproof coat
Animal Example 3: Fish
Fins to push through water
Small body to be able to hide
Can intake little oxygen and still be able to live with that small amount
Plant Example 1: Duckweed
In wetlands, there are certain plants that can float on the water, and duckweed was adapted to do that.
Plant Example 2: Rocky Mountain Iris
Adapted to show off it's colors so many pollinators would try to pollinate it
In wetlands, these trees have a very large root system
Plant Example 3: Tree
