Transcript of "Georgia Habitats"

  1. 1. Georgia Habitats
  2. 2. Georgia Piedmont Habitat <ul><li>The Georgia Piedmont is between the mountains and the plains. </li></ul><ul><li>Known for weathered and nutrient poor soil. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Piedmont Habitat Land Animals Raccoon These nocturnal animals are found in urban, suburban, and rural habitats. They are also found from the mountains to the coast! The white tailed deer is the smallest deer in North America! This is the Red Fox. It hunts alone or in small family groups!
  4. 4. Piedmont Land Animals and Birds
  5. 5. Piedmont Water Animals Reptiles Snakes, frogs, and lizards Because they are reptiles, they like to be near water! Cottonmouth – water moccasin
  6. 6. Piedmont Habitat – Trees The Live Oak is Georgia’s state tree Georgia Pine Trees Sweet Gum Dogwood
  7. 7. Piedmont Plants Cherokee Rose Iris Azaleas
  8. 8. Georgia Mountains Habitat The mountains in Georgia were formed over a billion years ago! Brasstown Bald is in the Georgia mountains. It is the highest point in Georgia rising over 4,784 feet above sea level.
  9. 9. Mountain Habitat The trees and plants in the mountain habitat are the same as the Piedmont!
  10. 10. Mountain Habitat Land Animals Mountain Lions Eastern Cottontail Rabbit Bobcat
  11. 11. Mountain Habitat Land Animals Black Bear Red Fox
  12. 12. Mountain Habitat Water Animals American Toad This frog prefers to be in rocky, mountainous places, but you can find it in lots of other habitats too! River Otters Brown trout
  13. 13. Mountain Animals Birds Great Horned Owl
  14. 14. Marsh / Swamp Habitat <ul><li>The Okefenokee Swamp is in the Georgia Plains region. </li></ul><ul><li>Okefenokee comes from the Indian word which means “Land of the Trembling Earth” </li></ul>
  15. 15. Marsh / Swamp Habitat <ul><li>Not all of the Okefenokee is a swamp. Part of it is a bog which is a mossy wetland. </li></ul><ul><li>It is so boggy that you can shake trees by stomping on the ground! </li></ul>
  16. 16. Marsh and Swamp Habitat Trees <ul><li>Trees include giant tupelos and bald cypresses. </li></ul>Tupelo Trees Cypress Trees
  17. 17. Marsh / Swamp Habitat Plants Pitcher Plants eat live bugs! The bugs are attracted to the smell and they crawl inside. Once inside, they are trapped. The flower has strong chemicals that immediately dissolve the bug. Bladderworts live in shallow water and have small air sacs that catch small bugs, water fleas, and worms. The Sundew flower has sticky stuff on the plant. When bugs land, they are stuck. Then the flower can eat the bug.
  18. 18. Marsh and Swamp Habitat Land Animals The black bear eats plants and animals. White Tailed Deer
  19. 19. Marsh and Swamp Habitat Water Animals River Otters Water Moccasin One of Georgia’s few venemous snakes. It can coil, bite, and coil again in ½ second! Did you know a full grown alligator can grow up to 15 feet and weigh 700 pounds?
  20. 20. Swamp and Marsh Habitat Birds The Sandhill Crane Ospreys Anhingas These birds feed on small prey such as lizards, rats, and snakes.
  21. 21. Swamp and Marsh Birds Egret
  22. 22. Coastal Habitat <ul><li>The coastal habitat is the southeastern portion of the Coastal Plains region of Georgia. It is the coastline that separates the plains from the sea. </li></ul><ul><li>You can see the coastal habitat in the picture below. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Coastal Habitat Plants Wire Grass Grasslands A variety of plants
  24. 24. Coastal Habitat Trees Spanish moss on a Live Oak tree
  25. 25. Coastal Habitat Birds
  26. 26. Coastal Habitat Birds Snowy Egret
  27. 27. Coastal Habitat Animals
  28. 28. Atlantic Ocean Habitat Every year Loggerhead sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach, but make their home in the ocean. That is why you found them in the Coastal Habitat as well!
  29. 29. Atlantic Ocean Habitat Marine Life Right Whale Crabs
  30. 30. Atlantic Ocean Habitat Marine Life These dolphins were spotted just of the coast of Tybee Island

  32. 32. Changes in Habitats Pollution Deforestation Forest Fires Natural Disasters
  33. 33. Pollution Pollution also is a major reason for the loss of habitat. When it rains, many chemicals and debris from roads, cars, lawns, construction sites and dumps - just to name a few - run into streams and finally into the estuaries and bays. When this habitat is destroyed by the chemicals, poor farming or building too close to streams - fish die. They die because their nesting and feeding areas are destroyed. These areas where fish can not survive are called &quot;Dead Zones&quot;. One of these dead zones extends 7,000 miles into the Gulf of Mexica off Texas and Louisiana due to pollution. *Courtesy of http://www.howard.k12.md.us/res/habitat/pollution.html

  36. 36. Forest Fires http://www.borealforest.org/world/innova/images/burned_woods.jpg
  37. 37. Oil Spills Oil water logs a bird's feathers so that it drowns, dies of cold or is poisoned by swallowing oil when trying to clean its plumage. Most oil pollution is accidental but some is deliberate, such as ships illegally washing out their tanks at sea.  http://www.rspb.org.uk/policy/marine/pollution/index.asp
