Eating their young Ocean productivity refers to the production of organic matter by "phytoplankton"
There is a low net productivity for this biome.
The factors of productivity are: light, temperature, salinity, and dissolved nutrients. Pollution: So much waste goes
into the ocean that could be toxic or not.
Acidification: Oceans absorb 1/3 the amount of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere. More Carbon Dioxide raises the pH balance of the water.
Fishing: Over Fishing destroys marine habitats Algae is a plant that exhibits phototropism. Phototropism is the effect in the orientation of an organism based on asymmetric illumination. Sources http://wildtracks.wordpress.com/world-ecosystems/saltwater-ecosystem/saltwater-animal-plant-adaptations/
http://faculty.scf.edu/rizkf/OCE1001/OCEnotes/chap11.htm Multimedia The oceans that are closer to the equator and are near the tropics have warmer climates.
The oceans closer to the north and south poles have colder climates.
The sun only warms the surface of the ocean so it is freezing in the deeper parts. Temperature
Atlantic Ocean: 34-85°F
Pacific Ocean: 42-70°F
Indian Ocean: 23-30°C
Arctic Ocean: -56 :-35°C
Southern Ocean: 28-50°F BY:
