Great lakes food chain Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Great Lakes Food Chain
    Kaitlin Ciampa
  • 2. Three Stages of the Food Chain
    • A food chain shows how each living animal gets it’s food.
    • 3. Producers
    • 4. Consumers
    • 5. Decomposers
  • Producers
    Take energy from the sun
    Nutrients from water
    Which creates food!
  • 6. Producers
    Provide food for almost every organism in the lakes.
    These organisms are called phytoplankton
    which is free floating algae.
  • 7. Phytoplankton’s Survival
    Stay close to waters surface.
    +
    Have proper nutrients.
  • 8. Consumers
    An animal that cannot make their own food.
    Eat producers and other consumers.
    There are 3 types of consumers
  • 9. 3 Types of Consumers
    Herbivores
    Carnivores
    Omnivores
  • 10. Herbivores
    Animals that only eat plants
    These are animals such as
    ducks or small fish.
  • 11. Carnivores
    Animals that eat other animals
    such as frogs
    Lake trout.
  • 12. Omnivores
    Any animal that eat plants and other animals.
    such as a bear
    or a human
  • 13. Decomposers
    • Bacteria and fungi
    • 14. Feeds on decaying matter
    such as dead animals
    • Decomposers are found everywhere
    • 15. live in water, air, and land.
  • Decomposers
    Recycle dead plants for chemical nutrients
    Such as…
    • Carbon
    • 16. Nitrogen
    Which then release back into soil, air, and water.
  • 17. Issues Affecting Great Lakes Food Chain.
    Water withdrawals.
    Caused from:
    Growing cities
    +
    Over crowding
    Not only do locals take water from the lake, but other countries as well.
  • 18. Invasive Species
    The invasion of other species cause havoc in the lakes.
    These are animals such as
    Sea Lamprey
    Spiny Water Flea
    Rusty Crayfish

  • 19. Pollution
    Run off from local farms and urban landscapes
