Biodiversity PowerPoint Presentations - PPT
The complexity and rich diversity of life found in forests provides many vital services to human beings Nonetheless humans are destroying forest biodiversity at an alarming rate The conversion of forests to agricultural land overgrazing unsustainabl

What is Biodiversity?. All living things in a food web are connected.. If the numbers of one species are affected it affects the numbers of all other species in the food web.. If the numbers of baboons decreased then this would affect every other living things in the food web..

Most if not all life forms play a vital role in the Peconic River, and because of the nature of how dragonflies develop and mature it is important to monitor this species. Dragonflies have a significant and positive role in maintaining ecological homeostasis. Being extremely skilled fliers and having almost a complete 360 view, they keep pesky mosquitoes, disease-spreading .

Abstract. Question. Salinity kit. Soil testing kits. pH test (water and soil). Thermometer. Materials. Data. Conclusions. Our hypothesis was that if there is a change from freshwater to saltwater, then the tidal plant species in each area will differ. The data collected from our experiment helped support our hypothesis. In our findings we saw that in the freshwater location, there was a greater amount of biodiversity and the plants were generally larger. On the other hand, we saw that in the saltwater location, the banks had less biodiversity and consisted with only Phragmites. One explanation for this is for the fact that the abundance of freshwater in the freshwater location allowed for a large variety of large plants to live in this area. However, only a thin layer of freshwater on the surface of the water was present at the saltwater location, which minimized the diversity of plant life that could live in this area. This minimized the competition in this area, allowing it to be overrun by Phragmites plants. .
