HideShow resource information
Decomposers
Microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi
1 of 13
Waste Products
The waste products produced are carbon dioxide, water and the nutrients
2 of 13
Detritivors(Detritus Feeders)
Maggots, worms eat organisms and produce waste material
3 of 13
Stable Community
When the processes: energy from the sun, nutrients from soil, decomposition and consumers gain energy through eating are all balanced
4 of 13
How does warmth help with decay?
Effects speed of reactions by bacteria being able to grow faster and increase in energy
5 of 13
How does moisture help with decay?
Breaks down substances
6 of 13
How does oxygen help with decay?
Is needed for microorganisms to respire
7 of 13
Photosynthesis
The only process that removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, plants use it to make carbohydrates and proteins
8 of 13
Respire
Both plants and animals respire, putting carbon dioxide back into the atmosphere
9 of 13
The Carbon Cycle
Carbon is constantly being cycled- from the air, through food chains and back into the air
10 of 13
Combustion equation
Fuel+Oxygen = Carbon Dioxide+Water
11 of 13
Respiration equation
Glucose+Oxygen = Carbon Dioxide+Water
12 of 13
Photosynthesis equation
Carbon Dioxide+Water = Glucose= Oxygen
