Biotic Comparisons: Animals

  • Italy and New Jersey have many differences and similarities because of our environments.

  • In New Jersey we have ants, beetles, ticks, fleas, slugs and much more.

  • In Italy, they have some things we don’t have such as lizards. We don’t have many lizards because it is usually cold here where the lizards can’t live. The lizards can’t live here because we live in a dense wooded area. They can live in Italy because they have a flat, hot area where the lizards can survive.

Biotic Comparisons: Plants

  • Italy and New Jersey have very different ecosystems, especially their plants. In New Jersey, there is a much greater variety of plants.

  • For example, in Italy they only recorded having bushes, grass, trees, and weeds. Some of the plants they recorded were agave, zangone, bear trees, yucca, and rosary.

  • Our class has recorded many more plants including dandelions, moss, lichen, and birch trees. New Jersey isn’t called the Garden State for nothing!

  • In Italy there is a variety of litter. For example, there are pens, pencils, bottle caps and plastic cups. Other types of litter are metal bars, and sheets of paper.

  • They have small rocks, but no big ones. Also they say they have no soil, mud, and sand. Italy has no soil, but that is impossible. Their school is trying to clean up all the litter they have.

better environment.
