3) B. The deer population will increase, and will strip the region of the vegetation.
4) the ecosystem collapses.
A keystone specie is a specie which has a disproportionate large influence on the ecosystem in which it lives relative to its abundance. The keystone specie determines what happens to an ecosystem to a large extent. So, if a keystone specie is remove from the ecosystem, the ecosystem will be negatively affected.
the ecosystem will start to collapse and this is exactly how your produces in this example would be removed by affecting the lower class organisms like rabbits, crickets, which will affect the primary carnivores like snakes and others and the higher class will be affected like owl will die off and your scavengers aren't able to pick off the dead animals which won't replenish the ecosystems which again will die off. hopefully this hop lol
1. Specie B is the predator of specie A.
A predator is an animal that eat other animals while the prey is the animal that is killed and eaten. Both the predators and the preys usually co-exist in the same ecosystem. The relationship between the predator and the prey affect the population of the organisms in all ecosystem; it determines the mortality of preys and the birth of new predators.
2. The vegetation it eats increases and then decreases repeatedly with changing seasons.
Cyclic population change refers to the changes that occur in the ecosystem as a result of fluctuations in one or two of the components of the ecosystem. For instance a decrease in the amount of found that is available for a particular specie in an ecosystem will result in cyclic changes in the population of that specie.
3. The deer population will increase, and will strip the region of the vegetation.
If the animals that are preying on the deer are removed, the deer population will increase significantly because they are not been killed again. And because the deer feed on the vegetation, the deer will strip the ecosystem of all its vegetation.
4. The ecosystem collapses.
The keystone specie of an ecosystem is that particular specie, which have a large influence on the ecosystem and which to a large extent determines what happens in the ecosystem. If a keystone species is removed for its ecosystem, the ecosystem will collapse.
2. THE VEGETATION IT EATS INCREASES AND THEN DECREASES REPEATEDLY WITH CHANGING SEASONS.
Some population of living organism usually undergo cyclic population changes in size. Cyclic oscillation results in repeated rise and fall in the population size of the concerned living organism over time. cyclic population changes are often brought about by interactions between populations of different species. For example, fluctuations in food availability can bring about cyclic population changes.
3. THE DEER POPULATION WILL INCREASE AND STRIP THE REGION OF VEGETATION.
The pumas and the panthers are the predators that feed on the deer. If these predators are eliminated, the number of deer in the region will increase drastically and this will be very detrimental to the health of the vegetation in the region. This is because, the deer, in their large number will feed unrestrainly on the vegetation until there is nothing left and this will affect the concerned ecosystem negatively.
4. THE ECOSYSTEM COLLAPSES.
A keystone specie refers to a specie of organism, which has a disproportionately large effects on its environment compare to its abundance or population. Such specie play crucial roles in the maintenance of the structure of the ecological community, that is, they largely determine the type and number of other specie in the community. Elimination of keystone species will leads to the collapse of the concerned ecosystem.
i think that the best answer would be c.
tell me if im wrong : )
any abiotic or biotic factor in an ecosystem that causes a population's size to slow or decrease is a limiting factor.
