Transcript of Grindsbrook Clough

Grindsbrook Clough
Valley Side
Bracken & Grass
Solid rock underlying loose deposits such as soil or alluvium.
The upper layer of earth in which plants grow, a black/dark brown material typically consisting of a mixture of organic remains, clay, and rock particles.
A woodland is a habitat where trees are the dominant plant form.
An elongated lowland between ranges of mountains, hills, or uplands, often having a river/stream running along it.
A mammal typically kept as livestock
Bracken: a tall fern with coarse lobed fronds that can cover large areas.
Grass: vegetation consisting of short plants with long narrow leaves, growing wild or cultivated on lawns and/or pasture
A state of the atmosphere with respect to heat or cold, wetness or dryness, calm or storm, clearness or cloudiness. Weather is a day-to-day variation of the atmosphere and their effects on life and human activity.
A small, narrow river.
A steep rock, generally found at the edge of the sea
An area of low-lying ground parallel to a river, subject to flooding.
Legend Groupings

= Biotic Components
= Abiotic Components
Connections Between Groupings
The two groups I came up with are: Biotic Components & Abiotic Components. I chose two simple but detailed groups to divide my Grindsbrook Clough valley components into, because that is the best and most clear aspect of looking at it. The connection between biotic and abiotic is that these are two categories that you can label any component of the world under, not only aspects of the valley. Abiotic factors are constantly influencing Biotic factors, vice-versa. The abiotic components of the world often provide oxygen, heat, water, energy, and even nutrients to some of the abiotic factors that contribute to our ecosystem such as: trees, plants, humans, animals, and more.
The relationship between Bedrock and Cliffs is as follows: Bedrocks lies beneath a loose deposit of soil, which cliffs can be placed on. If the bedrock were to shift due to movements of the lithosphere, the soil shifts, creating an unbalanced foundation of where the cliff is placed. For example, think of an avalanche happening during winter, it would be the same process, except to solid rock.
The relationship between a flooplain and a stream is as follows: Floodplains are lowlands that can be affected by being parallel to a stream/river, when the river is affect by the weather, it overflows, which affects the floodplain.
The relationship between Soil, Weather, Woodland, Valley side, Stream, and Floodplain is very important and as follows: the soil is constantly relying on weather to provide it nutrients such a water/sun, so that biotic components (plants,tress,grass) can continue to grow. Without the soil absorbing nutrients and water, the vegetation would not grow. (no woodland, no bracken & grass, no valleys, and no food for sheep to feed on)
The relationship between Sheep, Woodland the Valley side, and Bracken & Grass is as follows: All of the components listed above are biotic therefore they are all living. The sheep must feed, and commonly they feed of off grass which is located in woodland sections of the biosphere. If there is no grass/vegetation available for the sheep to eat, they will eventually become extinct, also affecting human's clothing production companies. Everything id carefully balanced within the world, and by one aspect being "out of place" an imbalance occurs creating problems.
Weather affects the growth of Woodland
Weather affects the growth of the Valley Side
Growth of the Valley Side effects intake
of food Sheep have
The growth of Bracken & Grass effects
the sheep's intake of food
Weather effects the soil (acid levels, nutrients.etc)
Weather effects the levels of the stream (to rise or to fall
The levels of the stream effect how much water will over flow into the floodplain
