Food Chain in the Ecosystem Diagram

Create a diagram in which you illustrate the energy flow among organisms of a food chain in a particular ecosystem. See Ch. 20 of the textbook for details and examples.

Select an ecosystem, such as a temperate forest, desert biome, or the Everglades.

Determine the interdependency of life in your ecosystem by examining its organisms.

Include the following in your diagram: 

  • List the organisms that can be found in your ecosystem. 
  • Identify the structure and function of the main organs in at least two organisms, and indicate why they are suited for that environment. 
  • Label major organisms that live in your selected ecosystem: P for producers, C for consumers, and D for decomposers. 
  • Name the types of consumers in your ecosystem. 
  • List the food chains associated with your ecosystem. Address the following items: 
    • Name of the plant or animal
    • What it eats
    • What eats it
    • How it adapts to the ecosystem 
  • Describe the ecosystem’s population growth and regulation through community interactions. 
  • Evaluate potential hazards caused by humans that might affect your ecosystem’s stability, such as environmental pollution. 

Include labels and associated details in the diagram.
