Grand Teton National Park

This is a food web of the Grand Teton ecosystem. It includes mostly 1st level consumers, as the ecosystem has over 1,000 species of vascular plants, allowing animals like the moose and the marmot to thrive.

Sagebrush is one of the most common plants in Grand Teton, being not only an important food source but also providing a place to live for small herbivorous rodents suh as marmots and chipmunks.

Unfortunately, this beautiful land is at risk from climate change caused by humans; the snow there melts earlier, which means it runs off earlier, leaving plants that grow later less water, in turn affecting herbivores such as marmots which rely on them for food, and affecting all the animals directly or indirectly.
