Biotic and Abiotic Structure and Function of an Ecosystem
In this assignment, you will check the biotic and abiotic structure and function of an ecosystem. Choose one of the spare-time activity ecosystemsTropical rainforest.Grassland.Coral Reef.Estuary.Desert.You will write a two to three page APA-style research paper about your choice of ecosystem including Where might this type of ecosystem be located? Give one specific example. pick out the structure of the ecosystem List both the abiotic components and biotic components secernate the function of the ecosystem How do the abiotic and biotic components interact in biogeochemical cycles? Describe both the carbon and nitrogen cycles Describe disturbance and recovery Describe one natural and one human caused disturbance to the ecosystem. Explain the trauma to the ecosystem, including how the abiotic and biotic characteristics of the ecosystem changed. Explain how ecosystems recover by nature based on resilience mechanisms and the theory of secondary succession. The following grading rub ric will be used for this assignment.Grading RubricAPA Style 5% Where might this type of ecosystem be located?
