Directions to the City of Springfield has built a public park around beautiful Cypress Pond. The city has hired you as its lead environmental scientist. Your job is to monitor the impact the new park has on the. Biodiversity of cypress pond. You will need to use information taught in this unit to successfully complete this worksheet. Introduction 1. Explain the process of succession to. Describe how changes in an ecosystem can affect the organisms that live there 3. Describe the amount of time needed for complete ecosystem recovery Cypress Pond Park planning City officials planned at the placement of the playground hiking trail and parking lot around the Pont in response to concerns that polluted water would run off of the parking lot and into the pond when it rains they decided to place the parking area as far from the pond as possible the most playground was Bill on the other side of the pond and a new hiking trail ones all the way around the part many trees were removed to make room for the parking lot playground and hiking trail your job as an environmental scientist is to study the impact of the park has on the pond ecosystem the pond contains trout and catfish catfish are very tolerant of pollution but trout are much more sensitive and die off easily when exposed to excessive pollution it's before the land and pond were distributed by the construction of the playground hiking trail and parking lot you counted the number of fish in the pond at the time Cypress Pond contain 100 trout and 100 catfish now you need to design an experiment to monitor the parks impact on the populations of trout and catfish over the next 12 months 1. What is the purpose of your experiment to. Develop a hypothesis for the experiment

  20. this article MIGHT help! A wild fire consumes a hardwood forest. The result may look like total devastation. But within a few months, plants begin sprouting from the blackened soil. For a few years, grasses and wildflowers may predominate. As time passes, shrubs dot the landscape. Then trees such as alder or pine emerge. A century later, the alder and pine are gone. In their place, oak, hickory, and maple have created a new hardwood forest.

    This is one example of plant succession. Plant succession is a process in which one type of plant community gives way to another in a predictable way. Each community of plants changes its environment. This change fosters the rise of a different plant community.

    For instance, grasses will anchor loose soil. They also hold moisture. When they die, they make the soil more fertile. This allows larger plants to take root. These plants may offer shelter from the wind. This allows still other plants to thrive. The arrival of trees brings another change. Trees shade smaller plants. So grasses and bushes may disappear from the forest floor.

These plants may offer shelter from the wind. This allows still other plants to thrive. The arrival of trees brings another change. Trees shade smaller plants. So grasses and bushes may disappear from the forest floor.

    The Process of Succession
    The first plants to colonize a barren landscape are called the pioneer community. The plants in a pioneer community tend to be hardy. We often think of them as "weeds." Typically, they can thrive under adverse climate and soil conditions. Their stay may be brief. But they leave behind "friendlier" conditions for the plant communities to come.

    The final stage of plant succession is the climax community. Climax communities tend to be stable. Unless destroyed by fire or other disaster, they may last for hundreds of years. Climax communities are good at recycling. They reuse and replenish nutrients in the soil. The plants and animals in a climax community tend to foster each other's health.

    Eventually, however, a climax community can become too crowded. Fire is one way that nature clears out the mess. The cycle of plant succession then begins anew. In fact, some plants need fire to begin growth. Examples include the lodgepole pine. Its seeds remain encased in hard resin. Only the high heat of a forest fire will release them.

    Forests are not the only plant communities that undergo succession. Witness an abandoned city lot. The lot may even be covered with asphalt. But eventually tiny cracks open. Tiny plants take root in the cracks. They enlarge the cracks and catch wind-blown soil. Larger plants can grow and open the cracks further. If the lot is left undisturbed, sapling trees will eventually appear. The saplings may mature into large shade trees.

    Primary and Secondary Succession
    Plant scientists describe two types of succession. There is primary succession and secondary succession. Primary succession occurs in an environment that has never been colonized by plants. Examples include bare rock or a sand dune. For instance, a volcano pours lava down its mountain cone. The lava cools and cracks. Tiny moss spores settle in the cracks. They begin to grow, and eventually mosses appear. Later, ferns grow atop these mosses. Gradually, the plants break down the lava into soil.

    Secondary succession occurs in an area where plants once grew. A fire or flood may have wiped out the earlier plant community. People may have destroyed the plants with bulldozers or pesticides. Once the disturbance has ended, secondary succession begins. As always, hardy pioneer plants will blaze the way.

  33. hi everyone, I am trying to help my daughter with this science portfolio but I am an English major, science is not my bag. So with that being said, my question to you is how do I define what my dependent and independent variable is on an observation experiment regarding the springfield pond and the park they decide to build around it? I get all the questions that's easy, I just don't understand what to do with the step by step variable . Ugh help! I'm feeling so right now and want to help my daughter. Thanks in advance for whatever help comes my way.

  42. 1. Explain the process Of succession, answer: 1st grasses and weeds begin to grow then smalle Strawbs and young trees appear as the trees become taller they Begin chip rodu shade which does not suit most grasses and wheat the grasses and weeds die off as shade loving plant thriving takeover within decades the open field transformed itself into the process of succession into a shady forest

    2. Describe how changes in an ecosystem can affect the organisms that live there. Answer: Changes in an ecosystem can cause fluctuations in organisms population

    3. Describe the amount of time needed for complete ecosystem recovery. Answer: Succession takes place slowly and some habitat can take more than a 100 years To mature I'm fully recover from devastation.

  44. Hello Amy,

    You could think about independent and dependent variables as cause and effect, the effect would be the dependent variable and the cause would be the independent variable. This should help you find your answer.

    Hope that this helped!

  45. 1-Succession is the process of progressive changes in an ecosystem over time.
    2-Changes in an ecosystem affects the animals and plants living there because when changes occur it is just another thing they have to adapt to, but sometimes these changes are big and ruin their ecosystem for good just like an earthquake.
    3-varies depending on how bad the affect was

    hope this helps
