Polar Ice Caps
By:JaQuajah Colvin Date: march 10th 2014
The Polar Ice Caps are located in the
north and south pole.
An ice cap climate is a polar climate where the temperature never or almost never exceeds 0 °C. The climate covers the areas around the poles, such as Antarctica and Greenland, as well as the highest mountaintops. Some areas are covered by a permanent layer of ice and have no vegetation, but they may have animal life, that usually feeds from the oceans.Polar ecology is the relationship between plants and animals in a polar environment. Polar environments are in the Arctic and Antarctic- regions. Arctic regions are in the Northern Hemisphere, and it contains land and the islands that surrounds it. Antarctica is in the Southern Hemisphere and it also contains the land mass, surrounding islands and the ocean. Polar regions also contain the subarctic and subarctic zone which separate the polar regions from the temperate regions. Antarctica and the Arctic lie in the polar circles. The polar circles are not visible on the earth but it is shown on maps to be the areas that receives less sunlight due to less radiation. These areas either receive sunlight or shade 24 hours a day because of the earth's tilt. Plants and animals in the polar regions are able to withstand living in harsh weather conditions but are facing environmental threats that limit their survival.
What if the zoo plankton's
extinct? The sea ice wouldn't have nothing to eat. Then the whole food web is messed up because of one extinction.
This is a example of
competition because
that bear saw the prey
or food first so the other
bear lost.
Organism Interaction
Predation: In ecology, predation is a biological interaction where a predator feeds on its prey.
This is an example of predation. The bear
is eating the prey.
Organism Interaction
Parasitism:A form of symbiosis in which one organism benefits at the expense of another organism usually of different species. The association may also lead to the injury of the host.
This is
an example
of parasitism
the host is getting injury
for other animals benefits.
Organism interaction
Commensalism:A form of symbiosis between two organisms of different species in which one of them benefits from the association whereas the other is largely unaffected or not significantly harmed or benefiting from the relationship.
This picture
is a commensalism
because they are benefiting
from the association.
Organism interaction
Mutualism:A symbiotic relationship between individuals of different species in which both individuals benefit from the association.

The picture above is mutualism
it connects to polar ice caps because each and all the species benefit from the association.
Environmental Issues
What biotic factors are involved?
What abiotic factors are involved?
What is happening in the ecosystem?
Why is this a problem?
biotic factors of an ecosystem basically means anything that is alive in a specific ecological setting. Each ecosystem has it's own biotic factors that must go through a life cycle in which everything works together as a whole.this includes the animals, trees, plants and the waste that come from all. On the other ecosystem are called abiotic factors. This could be a problem if abiotic and biotic factors were all together in one ecosystem because the are totally opposites.
Interesting/fun facts
A interesting fact about The Polar Ice Caps is that there only located in the north and south pole. Another interesting fact is mar's has polar ice caps but they are not composed of water ice instead they are mixture of carbon dixide and water ice.Also there are no plants in the polar ice caps.The last interesting fact is that during the winter and summer it is 24 hours daylight fopr summer all summer and 24 hour darkness for winter.
