They are producers who “absorb the sun's energy and convert the energy into food for themselves” (Minho & Lewis, 2017) By them absorbing the sun, it allows them to grow bigger and allow the plants to flourish. Consumers are the organisms that eat other animals or produce. Such as a hawk eating a mouse or a deer eating grass. These are essential to the ecosystem so that they speed up the decomposing stage. The Decomposers break down dead substances, this “returns nutrients to the soil so they can be reused by producers to create food” (Minho & Lewis, 2017) These biotic factors influence snow pea plants by acting as a producer for other animals and humans, as well as decomposing decaying materials and returning the nutrients to the
Plants use sunlight in the same way food is used by humans. People and animals get their food by eating it. Plants make their own food by using air, water, nutrients and energy from the sun (Rissman, 2009, p.5). While plants take care of their survival, it is worth noting that if the habitat changes in anyway this may present a challenge to the life of a plant. Why are plants important?
Microbes help keep nature’s water and soil clean by removing toxins and degrade organic matter in a form of recycling from dead animals and plants (Anon., 2014). Species of Microorganisms can survive in different types of habitats like; any pH range (like extreme acid to extreme alkaline), growth in temperature (like hot environment of 144C to cold environments -15C), salinity range (like fresh water to sodium chloride saturation) (Mahony, 2009). Microbes have evolved into a great number of mechanisms to digest food, reproduce and finds energy. For agriculture, medicine, warfare and energy production, scientists uses these skills to create them (Noel, n.d.). Microbe play an important part on earth ecosystems composing of oxygen, carbon and nitrogen.
In natural ecosystems, plants obtain their nitrogen from nitrogen fixing bacteria in the soil. Dinitrogen gas (N2) in the atmosphere can be used by soil microorganisms and converted into forms that can be used by plants, either symbiotically or non-symbiotically. Leguminous plants that contain Rhizoium bacteria may fix enough N2 to meet almost 80% of the plants nitrogen needs. The nitrogen cycle represents one of the most important nutrient cycles found in terrestrial ecosystems. Nitrogen is used by living organisms to produce a number of complex organic molecules like amino acids, proteins, and nucleic acids.
In some way, shape, or form energy is one of the several reasons why there is an existence of life on earth. Cellular respiration and Photosynthesis form a cycle of that energy and matter to support the daily functions that allow organisms to live. Photosynthesis is often seen to be one of the most important life processes on Earth. Photosynthesis is a process by which plants use the energy of sunlight to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose so other organisms can use it as food and energy. It changes light energy into chemical energy and releases oxygen.
Without them, our bodies would be open to microbial attack. ECOSYSTEMS: Microbes obtain energy from their environment. Like humans, many microbes do this by eating plant and animal material. A typical microbe buffet consists of waste from humans and other animals, dead plants and animals, and food scraps. Bacteria, fungi and algae all take part in decomposing — or breaking down — this waste material.
The soil store nutrients reserves which are available as nutrients for organisms through direct uptake for plants especially and through feeding on nutrient –rich organisms e.g. animals grazing on plants The soil also provides a medium for most organisms to move through. The soil provides aeration for those organisms that require it and other soil conditions are suitable for anaerobic organisms. Through the soils regulating function organisms are provided with an environment with lessened toxicity levels. The soil is also a medium for farming and crop development which are necessary for providing nutrition and economic development to improve human livelihoods.
All the things combined and become a biosphere.We should keep our environment sustainability, and keep our biosphere nutrient recycling. Biosphere includes producers, consumers, and decomposers. The producers are autotrophs by photosynthesis; the consumers are heterotrophs by producers, primary consumers and secondary consumers and... ... middle of paper ... ...s and moth-eaten sweaters that find their way to the dump. There are so many people always throw their clothes when they do not need it. In addition, there are many ways to recycle it like selling it to other countries, giving it to other people who need it.
Agricultural biodiversity is the food chains, develop and safeguard that will contribute to feeding the world. Agricultural revolution begins at the wild plant species in various parts of the world. It provides us with a safe source of food. This develops the development of human life, society and culture. Some elements of agricultural biodiversity have made and continue to make appreciable contributions to human diets is scarce and correlating agricultural biodiversity with human nutrition is generally difficult for a number of reasons including human diversity.
We destroy and devastate ecosystems and the species and organisms that live within them. Humans add chemicals to the soil and air that cannot be consumed or absorbed into the natural cycle. As a biotic part of the ecosystem we should do our part and find a balance as most other organisms have. If we do not, we may find that we will no longer be able to survive because we have destroyed the biome in which we live in.
