    Aquatic Biomes Aquatic Biomes Presentation Transcript

    • Freshwater Biomes
      -Salt concentration < 1%
      -Ponds and Lakes
      -Streams and Rivers
      -Wetlands
    • Ponds and Lakes
      -Lentic Systems= non-flowing water
      -Range in size
      -Limited species diversity
      -”Zones” determined by depth
    • Ponds and Lakes
      Littoral Zone
      Limnetic Zone
      Profundal Zone
    • Streams and Rivers
      -Lotic Systems = flowing water
      -Moves in one direction
      -Characteristics change from source to mouth
      -High species diversity
    • Wetlands
      -Areas of standing water that support aquatic life
      -Highest species diversity
      -May be dry part of year
    • Marine Biomes
      -Saltwater ecosystems
      -Oceans
      -Coral Reefs
      -Estuaries
    • Oceans
      -Largest Ecosystem
      -Great species diversity
      -”Zones” determined by depth
    • Oceans
      Intertidal Zone
      Pelagic Zone
      Abyssal Zone
      Benthic Zone
    • Coral Reefs
      -Found in warm, shallow water
      -Barriers along continents
      -Dominant organism is coral
    • Estuaries
      -Where ocean water meets fresh water
      -Brackish water
      -Unique ecosystem
