Ecosystems Gameshow
  • One question per round
  • Teams mark the others during each round
  • Make sure your answers are complete
  • All teams can score during each round!
what is a habitat1

What is a habitat?

Where one particular plant/animal lives

list 3 reasons why producers and photosynthesis are so important1
List 3 reasons why producers and photosynthesis are so important?
  • They produce food for all organisms in food chains/webs and ecosystems.
  • Without them there are no other organisms.
  • They produce oxygen for us to breathe.
what is made during photosynthesis1
What is made during photosynthesis?

Glucose/sugar and Oxygen

what is a community1
What is a community?

All the living organisms/populations in an ecosystem

describe 2 reasons why decomposers are so important1
Describe 2 reasons why decomposers are so important.

1. They break down dead and decaying matter and then release important nutrients back into the soil.

2. Without them, producers wouldn’t grow properly and thus the whole food web/food chain would collapse.

what is bioaccumulation1
What is bioaccumulation?

The accumulation or build-up of toxins in organisms.

what is an organism1
What is an organism?

A living thing.

what is the similarity between ecosystems and communities1
What is the similarity between ecosystems and communities?

Both contain all the living things or populations in an ecosystem.

who is most affected by bioaccumulation1
Who is most affected by bioaccumulation?

Organisms (especially predators) at the top of a food chain.

what is the similarity between populations and communities1
What is the similarity between populations and communities?

Communities contain all the populations in an ecosystem.

construct a food chain using the following biomass pyramid1
Construct a food chain using the following biomass pyramid.

Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk

slide26
Which organism would be the 2nd most affected by bioaccumulation?Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird Sparrowhawk
slide27
Which organism would be the 2nd most affected by bioaccumulation?Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird Sparrowhawk

Bluebird

slide28

What would happen to the caterpillar population if the Bluebird population suddenly decreased? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk

slide29

What would happen to the caterpillar population if the Bluebird population suddenly decreased? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird Sparrowhawk

It would increase.

slide30
What would happen to the oak tree if the Bluebird population suddenly decreased? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk
slide31
What would happen to the oak tree if the Bluebird population suddenly decreased? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk

It would decrease in size.

slide32

What would happen to the Sparrowhawk population if the Bluebird population suddenly decreased? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk

slide33

What would happen to the Sparrowhawk population if the Bluebird population suddenly decreased? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk

It would decrease in size.

slide34

What would happen eventually happen to the Bluebird population after it’s size decreased? Why? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk

slide35

What would happen eventually happen to the Bluebird population after it’s size decreased? Why? Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk

It would increase again, because there would be more caterpillars for the blue tits to eat and less Sparrowhawks to eat the blue tits.

list the secondary consumers of
List the secondary consumers of:

Back Swimmer, Frog, Centipede, Damselfly, Lizard

list the herbivores1
List the herbivores:

Tadpole, Moth, Ant, Maned Geese, Dragonfly

who would be most affected by bioaccumulation why1
Who would be most affected by bioaccumulation? Why?

Kookaburra, Lizard and Back Swimmer because they are carnivores at the top of the food chain, so the toxins will build up in it.

list the decomposers1
List the decomposers:

Daphnia, Centipede, Bacteria

who would be least affected by bioaccumulation why1
Who would be least affected by bioaccumulation? Why?

Algae and Sedge because they are producers at the bottom of the food web, so toxins are just starting to enter the food web.
