    • The aquatic biome isdefinitely the largest biome outthere. Water covers nearly 75percent of the earths surface, in theform of ocean, lakes,rivers, etc.
    • Fresh water regionsMarine water regions
    • Fresh water regions is defined as having a low salt concentration—usually less than 1%.
    • Marine water regions is the biggest biome in the world.
    • Lentic -still waterLotic - running water
    •  Ponds and Lakes Streams and Rivers Wetlands
    •  Ponds and Lakes Ponds are often seasonal, meaning they created in the rainy season. Lakes will often survived for hundreds of years.
    •  Littoralzone Limnetic zone Profundal zone Benthic zone
    •  Littoral zonewhich closest to the shore is a host to a wide variety of species due to to its warm, shallow environment.
    •  Limnetic zone the near-surface open water surrounded by the littoral zone.
    •  Profundal zone is the deeper region of ponds or lakes.
    •  Benthic zone very bottom of the floor.
    • These are bodies of flowing watermoving in one direction. Streams andrivers can be found everywhere—theyget their starts at headwaters, whichmay be springs, snowmelt or evenlakes.
    •  Wetlands are area of standing water that support aquatic plants.
    • BenthosNektonPlankton
    • Benthos Plants such as kelp and animals such as brittle fish that live on or depend on the bottom
    •  Nekton swimming animals such as fishes and whales that moves independently of water currents.
    •  Plankton are very small organisms that live in the worlds oceans.
    •  Ocean Coral Reefs Estuaries
    •  Ocean represents the largest and most diverse of the ecosystem.
    • Inter-tidal -the ocean connects to the landPelagic zone -out in the open ocean which is host to many species of fish and marine mammals.Benthic zone -or deep sea, and is host to silt sand and slowly decomposing organisms.Abyssal zone -deepest part of the ocean.
    •  Coral reefs are underwater structures made from calcium carbonate secreted by corals.
    •  Estuaries is a partly enclosed coastal body of brackish water with one or more rivers or streams flowing into it, and with a free connection to the open sea.
