Weather, Location, and Adaptations
Interdependency between Organisms
The grizzly bears would lessen the population of the cacti because they would eat it for food, and this will cause other animals to go extinct. The other animals would soon become extinct with the grizzly bears being in their habitat, because the bears would not only eat many of the animals, but also destroy many animals homes and protection by eating the cacti that many animals depend on.
If the cacti disappeared from the desert habit many animals would become endangered or extinct. The cacti is a home, food and water source, and protection to many desert animals and without it they would die. Cacti can serve as food to many animals along with a juice inside of the cacti and it's spike keeps animals that live in it protected from predators; so without it animals and the predators that rely on the animals would die, causing a increase of the population to the animals that are hunted by the same predators but don't rely on the cacti.
