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? important?

Glucose/sugar and Oxygen



What is a community1
What is a community? important?

All the living organisms/populations in an ecosystem



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

The accumulation or build-up of toxins in organisms.



What is an organism1
What is an organism? important?

A living thing.



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

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





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

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? important?

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. important?

Oak Tree  Caterpillar  Bluebird  Sparrowhawk


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


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

Bluebird


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


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

It would increase.


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


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

It would decrease in size.


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


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

It would decrease in size.


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


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 producers of
List the producers of: population after it’s size decreased? Why?


List the producers of1
List the producers of: population after it’s size decreased? Why?

Algae, Sedge


List the secondary consumers
List the secondary consumers: population after it’s size decreased? Why?


List the secondary consumers of
List the secondary consumers of: population after it’s size decreased? Why?

Back Swimmer, Frog, Centipede, Damselfly, Lizard


List the herbivores
List the herbivores: population after it’s size decreased? Why?


List the herbivores1
List the herbivores: population after it’s size decreased? Why?

Tadpole, Moth, Ant, Maned Geese, Dragonfly


Who would be most affected by bioaccumulation why
Who would be most affected by bioaccumulation? Why? population after it’s size decreased? Why?


Who would be most affected by bioaccumulation why1
Who would be most affected by bioaccumulation? Why? population after it’s size decreased? 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 decomposers
List the decomposers: population after it’s size decreased? Why?


List the decomposers1
List the decomposers: population after it’s size decreased? Why?

Daphnia, Centipede, Bacteria


Who would be least affected by bioaccumulation why
Who would be least affected by bioaccumulation? Why? population after it’s size decreased? Why?


Who would be least affected by bioaccumulation why1
Who would be population after it’s size decreased? Why? 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.


What is the habitat of the tadpole
What is the habitat of the tadpole? population after it’s size decreased? Why?


What is the habitat of the tadpole1
What is the habitat of the tadpole? population after it’s size decreased? Why?

The water.
