Himalayan Food Web
Transcript of Himalayan Food Web
By Haley DeHart
Population : ~10,000
Niche: Primary consumer, Omnivore
Habitat: lives in the foot hills of the Himalayan Mountains and lives between temperatures of 10*c to 25*c.
Nutritional Requirements: mainly eats large amounts of bamboo and leaves. Cannot eat cellulose.
Sensitivity: Red pandas have a hard time staying alive in the wild, depend on bamboo and are also hunted for their fur ,therefor they are very sensitive to change, they are are being conserved because of their low population.
Habitat: can grow in hot or cold, but mainly stay near the equator. Grows at most elevations
Nutritional requirements: Bamboo requires a lot of water and nutrient rich soil
Sensitivity: can grow slower due to unhealthy soil or loss of nutrients, but can grow and recover quickly.
Habitat: Forests at an altitude of ~800 to ~1200
Nutritional Requirements: They need sunlight which is easily obtained by their huge leaves and they will thrive is they grow near the Gucchi mushrooms because the mushroom releases nutrients the trillium needs.
Sensitivity: Can die if a part of it is picked off, making it very vulnerable. Some species of trillium are endangered.
Population: ~ 300
Niche: Secondary consumer, carnivore.
Habitat: cool forests of the Himalayas.
Nutritional Requirements:They are carnivores so they rely on the population of primary consumers.
Sensitivity: The Himalayan wolf is considered endangered and is very sensitive. They are threatened by humans killing them and also global warming
Niche: primary consumer, Herbivore
Habitat: cool climates in rocky areas of the Himalayan mountains between the elevation of 2,500 m and 5000 m.
Nutritional Requirements: needs plants like trees, grass and shrubs in order to live.
Sensitivity: it is near threatened because of hunting and loss of habitat
Niche: Primary consumer, Herbivore
Habitat: live in bamboo forests that are on the foothills of mountains
Nutritional Requirements:Cannot eat cellulose, so they need to eat a lot of leaves, flowers and bamboo.
Sensitivity: they are endangered, depend a lot on bamboo, and are threatened by deforestation so they are very sensitive to change.
Niche: Secondary consumer, carnivore
Habitat: can survive in just about any habitat, but its most common habitat would be on the foot hills of the mountain.
Nutritional Requirements: can adapt to just about any food resource, even to diets with no fresh water, but in this case they would be eating smaller animals and other primary consumers
Sensitivity: Its conservation status is not a concern , so it isn't very sensitive to change. is able to adapt to different diets and areas.
Habitat: in the forests of the Himalayan foothills
Nutritional requirements: It will most likely live in a forest because it requires dead plant material and can also use the waste left by animals that live in the area.
Sensitivity: Their sensitivity is based on the animals it feeds on, in this ecosystem, a lot of the animals have low populations , making the gucchi mushroom moderately sensitive.
Location: Foothills of the Himalayan Mountains
our ecosystem exists at an elevation between 15,700 ft and 7,200 ft, but the Himalayan mountains reach up to 29,035 ft (Mount Everest)
Forests of trees and bamboo
Temperatures up to ~ 25*c
Differs between smooth Bamboo forests and rocky cliffs.
The climate can range from frigid to warm and humid. This means that there are many different options for weather, like rain, snow and wind.
There is a possibility of snowstorms, floods and monsoons.
Niche: Tertiary consumer, carnivore.
Habitat: known to live in many places in India, but in this case it would live on the foothills of the Himalayas.
Nutritional requirements: They prefer larger animals to smaller animals because a diet of only smaller animals wouldn't give them enough nutrition.
Sensitivity: They are currently endangered with a population of ~2000
Niche: Tertiary consumer, carnivore.
Habitat: they live in cold climates at an elevation of ~4,000 m
Nutritional Requirements: can eat anything between a small animal to an animal twice its size. They have also been observed eating vegetation.
Sensitivity: They are considered endanger and have a total population of ~5,000
In this scenario, i have entered humans into this ecosystem. This means humans are taking away land, cutting down forests, polluting and hunting legally and illegally. The two things that i'm going to focus on are the hunting of animals and humans taking and building on the area this ecosystem exists on. In this chart, pretend that hunting affects the ecosystem before human expansion does.
