## anonymous one year ago For this assessment you will: 1. examine the animals and plants that live around your home or in a local park 2. choose one kind of plant or animal that lives there 3. identify the specific species name of the plant or animal that you chose 4. choose five factors that might limit the size of population of this species 5. identify each of your five limiting factors as a biotic or abiotic factor You will record this information in the assignment worksheet.

@Koikkara

2. Koikkara

Hmm, write the way you know, and i'll guide you, correcting it.. alright...? $$Carry~On..$$

@Koikkara

5. anonymous

can you help me, i don't understand

6. Koikkara

alright, do you got to parks or garden?

7. anonymous

not really

8. Koikkara

well, which places you go for shopping ?

9. anonymous

the mall

10. anonymous

actually i do go to parks sometimes

11. Koikkara

$$this~window~too~short~to~help~you~understand~!!~Nevermind~!$$

12. anonymous

and then we have to record the info to here

13. Koikkara

$$Check~Pm~!$$

14. anonymous

15. Koikkara

1. you have gone to parks.... << $$It's~Clear~!$$

16. anonymous

ok

17. Koikkara

2. Plant Selected: Rose plant ...<< $$It's ~Clear~!$$

18. anonymous

ok but how are we going to put the info into the boxes.. are we going to do that at the end after we finish all the steps?

19. Koikkara

You can sort it out yourself, when all the steps of understanding how to solve is done..

20. anonymous

ok

21. Koikkara

3. Identification of rose plant : $$Rose~Flower$$ The name rose comes from French, itself from Latin rosa, belongs to the family $$Rosaceae$$. There are over 100 species and thousands of cultivars. They form a group of plants that can be erect shrubs, climbing or trailing with stems that are often armed with sharp wingspanles. Flowers vary in size and shape and are usually large and showy, in colours ranging from white through yellows and reds. Most species are native to Asia, with smaller numbers native to Europe, North America, and northwest Africa. $$Does~it~Help~?$$

22. anonymous

yea

23. anonymous

so step 4 ?

24. anonymous

@Koikkara

25. Koikkara

Step 4.$$The~5~ factors~ that ~ limit~ the ~size~ of~ population~!~$$

26. anonymous

which are?

27. Koikkara

Limiting factor is a factor that causes population growth to decrease. $$Can~you~say~what~kills~rose~plants~?$$

28. Koikkara

1. ?

29. anonymous

what?

30. Koikkara

1. _______ limiting factor.?

31. anonymous

oh you want me to write the first limiting factor?

32. Koikkara

Ofcourse... Write it down, it helps later..

33. anonymous

1. density-dependent limiting factor.

34. Koikkara

Good !! $$Ref:$$ Other $$Limiting~ Factors$$ The following are regarded as the most important environmental factors · Temperature · Moisture supply · Radiant energy · Composition of the atmosphere · Soil aeration and soil structure · Soil reaction · Biotic factors · Supply of mineral nutrients · Absence of growth-restricting substances

About $$How~They~Limits$$ http://broome.soil.ncsu.edu/ssc051/Lec3.htm

36. anonymous

ok so i will pick 4 more because i need 5 limiting factors i pick.. temperature moisture supply radiant energy soil reaction :)

37. anonymous

ok wait so is this how I'm supposed to do it?

38. Koikkara

Ofcourse, you know to answer such questions, Now !

39. anonymous

ok but i still need help hold on.. is density-dependent biotic or abiotic?

40. Koikkara

Density-dependent factors are most often biotic variables. Biotic variables are all of the living organisms within an ecosystem.

41. anonymous

ok so biotic :)

42. Koikkara

$$\large\rm\color{green}{Correct~!}$$

43. anonymous

and i need a Description of how this limits the population of the species you selected

44. Koikkara

do u remember the example i gave 100 flowers in the pot for 2 ?

45. anonymous

yea but can you tell me it again in a full sentence please :)

46. Koikkara

Density-dependent factors operate only when the population density reaches a certain level. These factors operate most strongly when a population is large and dense. For example, when you plant 100 flowering plants it die -off because they compete for food, water space, sunlight and other essentials.

47. Koikkara

and the rest... you can find from the link, $$Scroll~Up~!$$

48. Koikkara

$$\large\rm\color{green}{Nice~to~meet~you~!}$$

49. anonymous

okay awesome thanks!

50. anonymous

@Koikkara

51. anonymous

ok so is temperature biotic or abiotic?

52. Koikkara

In $$general$$ ( for all limiting factors) There are two categories of these factors: abiotic and biotic. Abiotic factors are the non-living parts of the environment that can often have a major influence on living organisms. Abiotic factors include water, sunlight, oxygen, soil and temperature.

53. anonymous

so ABIOTIC!

54. Koikkara

$$100\100~marks$$

55. anonymous

ok so i need a Description of how this limits the population of the temperature

56. Koikkara

Living things- biotic non living things - Abiotic. $$Descriptions$$ Check the link. $$Cheers~!$$

57. anonymous

but i like the description you give me :)
