Transcript

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