Southern Ridges Park-Hort Park
23 May 2013
Key Learning Point:
1. Recycling Bins
There are trails to allow visitors to the park to look at the plants at close range. This way, the visitors would not trample on the plants.
These construction works are to recreate the land after a landslide so that more plants and animals can live there.
1. The Black-Naped Oriole
a) If a certain area is destroyed, the other seeds at other areas can still survive.
b) This would prevent overcrowding. Overcrowding is detrimental as it would lead to competition for nutrients, food, space and light. Thus, the dispersal of seeds would prevent overcrowding and allow the plants to grow well.
2. Plant Defence Mechanisms
3. Food Chains
This is a natural feature of the ecosystem. It allows the survival of some animals, although it may mean that other animals or plants have to die.
This is the world that exists right now, because of Man that litter and do not recycle.
This is an image of the soil erosion at the forest trail at Hortpark. There was a landslide a few years ago at Hortpark. However, they were able to stop it by adding a layer of concrete.
