Ecosystems by: miley middleton

How are living things connected? Living things are connected by what they eat and their species. Also, they are connected by what they hunt and what they are hunted by. Adaptations can be features of the body, such as teeth or hooves. Every living thing has an adaptation. They are also connected by their different types of groups. Here is an example:

Carnivores eat meat. A snake is one example of a carnivore. It eats worms, caterpillars, frogs, mice, fish, and small birds. Omnivores eat both meat an plants. A small bird eats insects, spiders, and the seeds of plants. Herbivores only eat plants. This is another example: Herbivores: caterpillars Carnivore: snake Omnivore: bird.

What happens if there are changes in an ecosystem or if one thing is removed? Of one thing is removed then the whole food web or food chain would be different animals and plants would start to starve then they would dye. If something in a food chain is harmed then something could go wrong. For an example a bicycle, an ecosystem needs every part in a place. But a bicycle with something missing is easy to fix. here is another example if wildebeests don't survive then what would lions eat the lions would starve and when the lions are gone. The wildebeests eat grass so if the grass dyes then wildebeests would be gone. Also, when a habitat changes then the plants and animals may have trouble surviving. Habitats also are changed by natural causes, such as wildfires, volcanic eruptions, or hurricanes so the animals would have trouble surviving. That is what happens when an animal is gone or removed from a food web or food chain.
