  1. Marine Biome Research By Kendal Griggs

  2. MarineGeography & Climate • Location- Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Arctic, and Southern. • Description- Smaller ones, such as Gulfs and Bays. • Soil Type- Salt water and sand. • Precipitation- Provides rain through crops through evaporation. • Temperature range- 39 degrees F (4 degrees C.) • Climate- Surface of the water is warm, due to the sun. The deeper the water the colder it gets. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.london.d21.k12.il.us/teams/6discovery/MBAlbum/images/underwater_jpg.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.london.d21.k12.il.us/teams/6discovery/MBAlbum/pages/underwater_jpg.htm&usg=__TiZtuCdl263Pw9UYVJZIHVvMFqI=&h=1200&w=1600&sz=363&hl=en&start=7&zoom=1&tbnid=feMkY8M5dlft7M:&tbnh=113&tbnw=150&ei=iKP5UODuAbT02wW5n4GAAw&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dmarine%2Bbiome%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1

  3. MarineBiodiversity • Plant species- Algae; Kelp & phytoplankton. • Animal species- mollusk, fish, whales, crustaceans, bacteria, fungi, sea anemones, and many more ocean animals. • One million species have been discovered, but up to nine million species exist and have yet to been found. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://marinebio.org/i/biodiversity2.jpg&imgrefurl=http://marinebio.org/oceans/conservation/biodiversity.asp&usg=__dQrSPCqczlh86RUEP7BgOeUpZWI=&h=309&w=450&sz=102&hl=en&start=1&zoom=1&tbnid=_lB6LQtCc0r9dM:&tbnh=87&tbnw=127&ei=faT5UJr-B4iA2gXlZg&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dmarine%2Bbiodiversity%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1

  4. MarineAdaptations Needed for Survival • Plant- Through photosynthesis marine plants and algae provide much of the world’s oxygen supply and take in huge amounts of carbon dioxide. This absorption of carbon dioxide may be a useful tool in reducing the severity of climate change. • Animal- Animals have to deal with unique living situations in all zones of the ocean. Most marine mammals have blubber to help them survive in cold weather. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.kmuska.com/ocean/fishadaptat.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.kmuska.com/ocean/adaptations.html&usg=__NdJMeAZG-Xc1wlSTqxVVoBgQwME=&h=262&w=350&sz=49&hl=en&start=1&zoom=1&tbnid=i11gVU8zJyuCEM:&tbnh=90&tbnw=120&ei=9qT5UPm3PMLx2QX-oYHwCw&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dmarine%2Badaptations%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1

  5. MarineInteractions of Biotic and Abiotic • Biotic- • Abiotic- Kelp absorbs energy from wave that might hit the ocean shore. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://apesnature.homestead.com/files/fg02_022.jpg&imgrefurl=http://apesnature.homestead.com/chapter2.html&usg=__RSFZSkhd36EOJ7rsu0k_YzlUtB4=&h=400&w=600&sz=41&hl=en&start=13&zoom=1&tbnid=PmSWFHPDzLIWAM:&tbnh=90&tbnw=135&ei=RaX5UMDdIKr02gXvjYGoCg&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dmarine%2Bbiotic%2Band%2Babiotic%2Bfactors%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1

  6. What is Biodiversity? • Biodiversity is the number of different species of plants and animals in an environment. It can be studied on many levels and is the variety of life. At the highest level, you can look at all different species on the entire Earth. On smaller scales, you can study biodiversity within a pond or a simple neighborhood park.

  7. How does biodiversity contribute to the sustainability of an ecosystem?
