  6. 6.  Ponds and Lakes Streams and Rivers Wetlands
  7. 7.  Ponds and Lakes Ponds are often seasonal, meaning they created in the rainy season. Lakes will often survived for hundreds of years.
  8. 8.  Littoralzone Limnetic zone Profundal zone Benthic zone
  9. 9.  Littoral zonewhich closest to the shore is a host to a wide variety of species due to to its warm, shallow environment.
  10. 10.  Limnetic zone the near-surface open water surrounded by the littoral zone.
  11. 11.  Profundal zone is the deeper region of ponds or lakes.
  12. 12.  Benthic zone very bottom of the floor.
  13. 13. 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.
  14. 14.  Wetlands are area of standing water that support aquatic plants.
  15. 15. BenthosNektonPlankton
  16. 16. Benthos Plants such as kelp and animals such as brittle fish that live on or depend on the bottom
  17. 17.  Nekton swimming animals such as fishes and whales that moves independently of water currents.
  18. 18.  Plankton are very small organisms that live in the worlds oceans.
  19. 19.  Ocean Coral Reefs Estuaries
  20. 20.  Ocean represents the largest and most diverse of the ecosystem.
  21. 21. 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.
  22. 22.  Coral reefs are underwater structures made from calcium carbonate secreted by corals.
  23. 23.  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.
