In this section, include a brief description of the allocated ecosystem. You should include the following information:

  • Location of the ecosystem: Antarctica is Earth's southernmost continent , containing the geographic South Pole. It is situated in the Antarctic region of the Southern Hemisphere, almost entirely south of the Antarctic Circle, and is surrounded by the Southern Ocean.
  • Description of ecosystem: Antarctic, on average, is the coldest, driest, and windiest continent, and has the highest average evelation of all the continents. Antarctica is considered a desert, with annual precipitation of only 200mm(8 inches) along the coast and far less inland.
  • Biodiversity of ecosystem (richness of life in ecosystem): There are no permanent human residents, but anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000 people reside throughout the year at the research stations scattered across the continent. Only cold-adapted organisms survive there, including many types of algae, animals (for example mites, nematodes, penguins, seals and tardigrades), bacteria, fungi, plants, and protista. Vegetation where it occurs is tundra. 



Physical Factors

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

  • Light (availability of sunlight in the ecosystem)
  • Temperature (temperature of the ecosystem)
  • Water (water quality in the ecosystem)
  • Air (quality of air in the ecosystem) 




Classification of Living Organisms

Classify at least eight of the living organisms found in the allocated ecosystem into the categories below:

  1. Producer - Plants
  2. Primary Consumer - Algae
  3. Secondary Consumers - Protista, mites
  4. Tertiary Consumers - Seals, penguins,
  5. Decomposers - Fungi

For each of the living organism, find a picture and write a short description on the organism. You may wish to include feeding habits, region in the ecosystem where it is normally found etc. 



Food Web 

Create a food web using at least eight of the living organisms listed above. You may wish to use Microsoft PowerPoint to create your food web. Save your food web as a picture. Finally copy and paste your picture in this section of your wiki. 



Interrelationship in Ecosystem

Choose and write about one example from the following relationships in the ecosystem:

  • Predator-prey relationship
  • Parasitism
  • Mutualism



Useful Links

Plagiarism is a strongly discouraged.


Include the links of all websites you obtained information from to complete your ecology wiki. 

For example:

Wild World @ nationalgeographic.com ( http://www.nationalgeographic.com/wildworld/terrestrial.html )
