Alpine Ecosystem

CommensalismAn example of commensalism in my ecosystem would be a caribou and an arctic fox. The arctic fox follows the caribou around, until the caribou stops to eat. When the caribou eats, it digs in the snow with it's nose, searching for bugs. When the caribou leaves, the arctic fox goes to the place where the caricou dug, and it keeps digging until it finds food to eat; mice. So, the caribou helps the arctic fox by making the arctic fox's work easier.

Some abiotic factors in my ecosystem are:-temperature-sunlight-wind-rocks-precipitation-altitude-oxygen

ParatismCaribou and wolves can get tapeworm in their liver. This leads to malnutrition for the animal becaus the tapeworm feeds on whatever the animal eats.

MutualismAn example of mutualism in my ecosystemwould be a bee and a flower. The flower helps the bee by providing it with food; nectar.The bee helps the flower by contributing to the pollonation of the plant.

CompetitionThere is more competition for food for the herbivores because there is very little vegetation. Alsoanimals must compete for shelter to stay warm during the winter. An example would be snow leopard and another snow leopard for fighting for a mate.

Here are some of the biotic factors in my ecosystem:-Caribou: (consumer, prey)-Arctic ground squirelle: (consumer, prey)-Llama: (consumer, prey)-Chinchilla: (consumer, prey)-Polar bear: (consumer, predator)-Snow Leopard: (consumer, predator)-Wolf: (consumer, predator, prey)-Raven: (consumer, predator, prey)-Golden Eagle: (consumer, predator, prey)-Mt. Cook Lily: (producer)-Alpine Sundew: (producer)-Tussock: (producer)-Vegetable Sheep: (producer)-Bear Grass: (producer)
