Physical Factors

Search the Internet for information on the following physical factors in the allocated ecosystem. 

  • The amount of light is limited due to the number of tree's covering the huge area. 
  • The swamp is usually humid but it is sometimes very warm in the afternoon
  • The water at a swamp is a little brackish and it is not safe to drink the water. 
  • The salinity of water is brackish which is a mixture of both fresh and salt water. 
  • The amount if air is alot as there are tree's that usually photosynthesize there. 
  • It is not a safe place to drink from the swamps as there might be some dead organisms. 
  • There is not much nutrients or minerals as there will only be alot when the animals or organisma there have been decomposed.
