1: Kingdom Protista
2: Mind Map
3: Chlorophyta (Green Algae) | This was found in the pond near my house. It lives symbiotically through predation with fish, plankton, and other sea life. Its niche is to provide food.
4: Protozoa | Protozoa can be found in wet areas. They live symbiotically with plankton as food. Their niche is to be a food source.
5: Kingdom Fungi
6: Mind Map
7: P. Lycopoda (Lichen) | Lichen can be found on the bark of trees. It lives in a mutualistic relationship with algae because it provides moisture to the algae which provides the lichen with nutrients. Its niche is to provide a moisture to other life.
8: P. Basidiomycota (Mushroom) | Mushrooms can be found near damp areas. They live in predation to wildlife and humans who eat them. Their niche is food to animals and humans.
9: P Basidiomycota (Shelf Fungus) | Shelf Fungus can be found on the bark of tree trunks. They are used by humans as food and for medical purposes. Their niche is food and medicine.
10: Kingdom Plantae
11: Mind Map
12: P. Bryphyta (Moss) | Moss can usually be found in damp and shady areas. They live in commensalism with the other animals. Their niche is bedding for other animals.
13: P. Pterophyta (Fern) | Ferns are commonly found in in moist shady areas. They live in predation to the surrounding animal life. Their niche is food.
14: P. Coniferophyta (Pine Trees) | Pine Trees are usually found everywhere, they are an invasive species. They live in neutralism with everything. Their niche is shelter for small plants and animals.
15: Class Monocotyledon | Monocots are found nearly everywhere. They live in predation and neutralism with animals. Their niche is food and shelter.
16: Class Dicotyledeon | Dicots are found almost all over the world. They live in neutralism. Their niche is to provide shelter.
17: Kingdom Animalae
18: P. Porifera (Sponge) | Sponges are found at the ocean floor. The live in a neutralistic environment with other sea life. Their niche is shelter to sea life.
19: P. Cnidaria (Jellyfish) | Jellyfish are found in warmer waters. Most are predators eating plankton and other fish, while others are parasites. Their niche is secondary/tertiary consumers.
20: P. Platyhelminthes (Flatworm) | Flatworms are usually found in marine sands. They live as predators of barnacles and oyster spats. Their niche maintaining balance in the ecosystem.
21: P. Nematoda (Roundworm) | Roundworms are found everywhere. Roundworms are parasites you get from eating undercooked meat. Their niche is to eat you from the inside out
22: Class Gastropoda (Snail) | Snails are commonly found in a marine environment. They live in a predation environment which is why they have those shells. Their niche is that of a primary consumer.
23: Class Pelecypoda (Bivalves) | Bivalves are usually found on the ocean bed in freshwater habitats. They live in neutralism with the other sea life. Their niche is to clean and purify the water.
24: P. Annelida (Earthworm) | Earthworms can be found anywhere there's dirt. It is the victim of predation by birds. Its niche is to aerate the soil.
25: Class Insecta (Insects) | Insects typically live everywhere. They're victims of predation by anything bigger than them. Their niche is primary consumer and prey to almost everything.
26: Class Chilopoda (Centipede) | Centipedes are normally found under rocks and damp forest floors. They are predators to other arthropods. Their niche is secondary consumer.
27: Class Arachnida (Spiders) | Spiders are found anywhere that's not the sea. They prey almost exclusively on other arthropods. Their niche is population control.
28: Class Crustacea (Lobster) | Most often they are found under or near water. They are mostly motile, but some are parasitic. Their niche is secondary consumer.
29: P. Echinodermata Class Asteroidea (Starfish) | Starfish are found under the sea. Starfish prey on worms and mollusks such as clams. Their niche is population control of sea urchins.
30: Class Chondrichthyes (Sharks) | Sharks are found in nearly every aquatic environment on Earth. They prey on everything. Their niche is top level consumer.
31: Class Osteichthyes (Bony Fish) | Bony Fish are found in nearly every aquatic environment. They prey on smaller fish. Their niche is secondary/tertiary consumer.
32: Class Amphibia (Frogs) | Frogs live in moist and damp areas. They prey on flies and other small insects. Their niche is population control for insects.
33: Class Reptilia (Lizards) | Lizards typically live in desert climates. They live commensally with cacti by drinking the water stored inside. Their niche is small rodent population control.
34: Class Aves (Birds) | Birds are usually found in the sky or in trees. Birds feed on insects and small rodents. Their niche is to cross-pollinate and spread seeds.
35: Class Mammalia (Mammals) | Mammals can be found almost anywhere. They interact with different species in very different ways. Their niche is to keep their territory.
