How Humans Affect The Everglades These Are some ways we are destroying the everglades because of us the everglades is only half the size it was. • We keep littering there. • We kill animals that live there. It has been like this for over 50 years
Main Organisms These are some Important plants: Duckweed, Blue-green algae, and saw grass. Bacteria and earthworms are Decomposers.
Important Organisms • Important animals are the Florida water rat because a lot of animals eat it, Apple snail because it is the only thing the Snail Kite eats The alligator eats fish & snakes. The mosquito fish eat mosquitoes drifting on the water.
Main Abiotic Factors The Everglades is normally warmyear round. Even when it is dry it still rains a little. Some of the abiotic factors are temperature and water level. The water level effects this ecosystem because the fish wont be able to swim and animals wont be able to bathe. We need the water level in the Everglades to get bigger.
