1: MOOSE PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION The adult moose is a large mammal, shaped much like a horse, which is dark brown in color. Their hindquarters are slightly lighter in color and so is their underbelly. The hair is short in the warmer months, longer and thicker in the winter months and it's hollow, which helps them to swim. The male moose, called a bull, grows a large rack of antlers which, when fully grown, can be up to 6 or 7 feet across and weigh around 80 pounds! The female moose, called a cow, does not grow antlers. Moose have large ears which can pivot independently from each other in all directions and so they have very good hearing. The shape and placement of the antlers on the males may even improve their auditory abilities. Moose have dark brown eyes which, like the ears, can pivot independently 180, therefore a moose can see all but what is directly behind him. Their sense of smell is also very acute. The nose has special valves inside which allow moose to submerge their heads and dive under water.

2: BIOTIC FACTORS THAT AFFECT A MOOSE competition for food When populations become crowded, individuals compete for food, water, space, sunlight, and other essentials. Some individuals obtain enough to survive and reproduce. Others may obtain just enough to live but not enough to enable them to raise offspring. Still others may starve to death or die from lack of shelter. Competition can lower birthrates, increase death rates, or both.

3: ABIOTIC FACTORS THAT AFFECT A MOOSE Lake of water lack of water can be a huge problem because the animals need water to survive and if they is a lack of water they will be less photosynthesis which will cause less oxygen which can lead to death in the moose's population . CHANGE IN TEMPERATURE climate changes can cause the food chain to be disrupted causing loss of prey for wolves and shelter and vegetation for moose SUNLIGHT Mooses need sunlight to use in their cycle of making food.if they is no sunlight the food chain will be disturbed . This is also why they need water etc.Animals need sunlight because the periods of light and dark help their bodies to maintain their circadian rhythms. Many animals need sunlight in order to find food. if there is no sunlight which means they will be no photosynthesis which provide oxygen for the mooses ,and if there is no oxygen the mooses will die .


5: Description: Strawberry is a small plant with a three-leaved growth pattern. It has small, white flowers usually produced during the spring. Its fruit is red and fleshy. Niche: Strawberries are found in the North Temperate Zone and also in the high mountains of the southern Western Hemisphere. Strawberries prefer open, sunny areas. They are commonly planted.


7: abiotiC FACTORS OF A STRAWBERRY PLANT DISEASES can produce symptoms ranging from distortion, dwarfing, spotting and discoloration of leaves, stunted growth, business, abnormal running, reduced yield and fruit quality and plant death

8: CANADA GOOSE PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION The key features of Canada Goose are, it has black neck and head; white cheek patches joining under chin; body mostly brown, with white on lower belly extending to under tail. Its habits are commonly; found in a range of habitats, usually near water; may form large flocks. They built nest on ground from plant material, lined with feathers; lays 4-7 eggs; incubation period is 24-30 days; young fledge after 40-86 days; 1 brood. Canada Goose sound like large subspecies make a deep honk; smaller subspecies make a higher-pitched cackle or barking noise. They feeds on seeds, fruits, and grains on land; also underwater plant material such as roots and stems. Its habitats were on tundra, semi desert, open cultivated areas, and wooded areas, usually near water. Canada Goose found across Native to North America; introduced to Britain, northwest Europe, and New Zealand. Its status are common and not globally threatened, although some subspecies are declining; Aleutian islands subspecies has benefited from conservation action

9: ABIOTIC FACTORS THAT AFFECT CANADA GOOSE WATER goose they need water to drink and also as their habitat Oxygen they need oxygen to survive if they is no oxygen they will die .TEMPERATURE In winter, Geese can remain in northern areas with some open water and food resources even where temperatures are extremely cold. Geese breeding in the northernmost reaches of their range tend to migrate long distances to winter in the more southerly parts of the range, whereas geese breeding in southern Canada and the conterminous United States migrate shorter distances or not at all. Individuals tend to return to the same migratory stopover and wintering areas year after year. Spring migration may be difficult for observers to track because of over-wintering birds and movements between nighttime resting areas and feeding areas, but the bulk of spring migratory movements tend to move north behind the retreating snow line, where the temperature is averaging 35 degrees

10: BIOTIC FACTORS THAT AFFECT A CANADA GOOSE Disease Disease is a harmful and abnormal condition that can afflict all organisms in an aquatic ecosystem. They can be bacterial, viral, fungal or parasitic in nature. Disease can also arise from adverse conditions like lower oxygen levels in the water. Competition The amount of food and shelter may be limited in an ecosystem. As a result, organisms will compete with one another to gain access to important resources. Competition may occur between the members of the same species or between organisms of different species that rely on the same resource.
