Chapter 19

Protecting the Biosphere

Copyright © 2004 by Garland Science


  • Chapter 19

  • Protecting the Biosphere

  • A. Review Mature, Natural Ecosystem

    • Stable, chemical recycling, energy flowing

    • No pollution

  • B. Pollution

    • Wrong place, time, amount

    • Measurement

    • Sentinel species (canaries)

    • Toxic substances


    • Chapter 19

    • Protecting the Biosphere

    • C. Human Activity

      • Water pollution and sources

      • Water usage, clean-up and treatment

      • Air pollution

      • Outdoor / indoor

      • Acid rain

      • CFC’s and ozone

      • CO2 and greenhouse effect

  • D. Reducing your (negative) impact on environment?

    • How can you?

    Mature Natural Ecosystem

    • Stable population (climax community).

    • Sunlight supplies the energy.

    • Chemical are cycled (short term).

    • Energy flows through the system.


    0

    There is no pollution (contamination) in a mature natural ecosystem

    Pollution:

    • Anything present in the

      • wrong place**

      • wrong time

      • wrong amount

    Problem of quantities


    0

    Problem of quantities

    How do we measure pollution?

    • known chemical identified

      • monitor [conc] in time & space

    • sentinel species

      • organisms sensitive to pollutants

    canaries in mines


    study the damage done to organisms by poisons (pollutants)

    0

    Toxicology

    • Toxic substances often affect:

      • nervous system

      • reproductive system

    e.g., DDT, dioxins

    Pollution prevention

    Cost / Benefits


    Human activity affects ecosystems

    Water pollution

    Agricultural runoff

    Industrial waste

    Human sewage

    Accidental spills

    Some

    sources:


    0

    Bioremediation

    Using organisms (like decomposers) to help remove toxic substances from the environment

    e.g.,

    using bacteria to cleanup oil spills

    Methods of treatment

    natural stream/soil action

    septic tanks

    lagoons

    wastewater treatment plants

    Wastewater treatment

    primaryparticulates settle out

    secondaryaerobic bacteria work

    water is chlorinated and released

    drinking water

    • Sources:

      • rivers/lakes

      • wells

      • treated wastewater


    0

    drinking water

    • Treatment:

      • holding tanks

      • flocculation

      • filtration

      • chlorination (fluorination)

    CO2 and global warming

    We releaseCO2

    Plants useCO2

    Burning fossil fuels

    releases more CO2
