Plants are found everywhere on earth, up high on the ridge and down low in caves and caverns. The types of plants that live in these places depends on many factors. These factors are separated into two different categories, the biotic factors and the abiotic factors. Some of the biotic factors include, predation, competition, and habitat destruction. Plants with limited competition and large amounts of resources will be in a higher abundance than plants with limited resources and higher competition rates will be confined to areas and either out competed or will be the dominant species. Certain plants adapt to these factors and thrive and others don’t do as well. Some of the abiotic factors include, sunlight, water, temperature, and wind. These
Scotland is a very unique country founded in 843 AD. Scotland capital is Edinburgh located in the east side of Scotland. Scotland Gross Domestic Product is an average of $216 Billion Dollars. Scotland’s official language is English although stated on page 90 of Scotland Enchantment of the world “...Gaelic became the chief language of the land. For centuries, it was the only language spoken by most of Scotland’s people... By the 1700s, English began to replace Gaelic... When the Education Act of 1872 was enacted, requiring all children to attend schools, English was the language taught in classrooms”. Christianity is the official religion of Scotland “about 54 percent of the Scottish population considers itself Christian” according to page
Álainn, which means beautiful in Irish. Even though I haven’t been to Ireland, I have seen pictures, and it is beautiful country. I am Irish because of my dad’s ancestors who came to America in the late 1800’s. The countries weather is amazing compared to what I have. In Ireland there is a plenty of things to do during the day. My family celebrates some of the Irish holidays, but we don’t do any of their customs. I was so excited to learn about the culture and the life of the Irish.
Biomes are appropriate conditions for organizing the natural world because the organisms that live in them common constellations of adaptations, particularly the climate of each of the areas and the characteristic vegetation types that develops in these divisions. It should be understood that the climate is perhaps the most important
The annual rate of precipitation, and elevational range once generated a strong foundation for a wide diversity of vegetation
There are many factors that account for the changes to the vegetation over time within ecosystems in the British Isles, such as human activity, climate, soil, light availability and intensity and natural disasters. The characteristics of the vegetation that are influenced by these factors are height, distribution, variety of species, adaptations and density of the vegetation. Some of these factors have relatively little influence on the succession development, whereas others have a dramatic influence over a long period of time, such as human activity. These factors, over time, result in the progression of a succession until the climatic climax vegetation is reached. However, sometimes these factors can mean that a plagioclimax is reached,
6. Primary Succession is starting from nothing and then slowly over years rebuilds into a habitable place such as starting from bare rock to pioneer species adapt and colonize what was nothing into something. Secondary succession is a process of recovering from a natural disaster or from human interaction with the earth such as faming.
Biomes are large areas or regions of the earth that inhabit diverse groups of plants and animals, who’ve adjusted to the climate and weather of their native ecosystem. People need to understand that the eight biomes are fragile to human interference. When humans pollute, cut, and do other harmful actions to a biome, it can cause the irreversible damage that leads to the entire biome collapsing. It’s important to understand that biomes are valuable parts of the earth that should be left alone or else there will be large consequences on the animals and plants within them.
In order to answer this question we must first understand what succession is. There are two types of succession, primary, and secondary. Primary is when there is no life on a landform such as an empty island, and there was no community on that island before the succession. Secondary succession is where the community that was on the island is now being removed, and that there is a recovering of the population after the succession has occurred. One of the important things to remember about secondary succession is that it is typically faster because the soil is already present and plants may still be buried under the soil, and thus can grow faster then if they weren't there.
There are many different types of ecosystems. One in particular is the Grassland. The grasslands have fertile soil, deep grass, wildflowers, herbs it is adjusted to its local climates. The
Glasgow Prestwick Airport is located in one of Scotland's oldest villages. Prestwick was established over 1,000 years ago and is 34 miles (54.7km) south of Glasgow. Prestwick is a golfer's paradise. The first British Open Golf Championship was in Prestwick back in 1860. Choose between three professional courses that include putting greens or go for one of the golf tours located near the airport. The city of Glasgow is about a 30 minute drive away offering up plenty of attractions for everyone. Glasgow is the cultural center of Scotland and here you will find art galleries, museums and historical sights to keep you busy. The city is also known for it's shopping and entertainment venues.

Within the passive impact of the landscape the sub-categories are less distinct, overlapping depending upon
After this disturbance primary succession would take place. Primary succession is the change in species composition over time in a habitat that was not previously inhibited by organisms. Immediately, all life in the forest would most likely be destroyed and the recently formed volcanic lava would create a bare rock surface, without soil. Afterwards prokaryote and protist species might populate the area, followed by nonvascular plants, and then some vascular plants. Primary successional species are often pants that have wind-borne seeds, like lycophtytes, or mosses and lichens. The outcome of a primary successional landscape is to rebuild soils, which develop over time as the mosses, grasses, and small plants grow, die, and decompose. Once
Succession can be defined as the concept of flora and fauna renewing itself in an ecosystem, which can be quite cyclical in nature. When discussing succession, it is broken down into two categories, primary succession, and secondary succession. Primary succession is where succession transpires in an uninhabited location. For example, Glacier Bay, Alaska is an important illustration of primary succession, because as the glacier recedes, land is being exposed creating a new habitat of barren rock. Lichens were one of the first pioneer species to appear on Glacier Bay, from there succession of other flora and fauna followed, developing a new ecosystem. While primary succession deals with the idea of inhabiting a ecosystem where life has never
Plagioclimax is an example of human activities that influence local scale ecosystems by most often halting succession of an ecosystem. Plagioclimax has occurred for thousands of years in local scale ecosystems, due to previous hunter-gatherer lifestyles which formed distinctive habitats through such activities as deforestation and animal grazing. More recently plagioclimax has had a positive influence on local scale ecosystems by conserving habitats that are naturally occurring but not self-sustaining one such example is Canford Heath, Dorset. If there was no management of the heath then it would develop into the climatic climax of the British Isles, temperate deciduous woodland. One technique used to preserve the heath land is enclosing 12
