  • Blue marlin, Stone Fish, Great Barracuda, clown fish, and Green turtles Are animal found in the tropical ocean
  • Plants found in the tropical ocean are Red algae, Sea grass, and Phytoplankton
  • Biotic Factors: Fish, Blue marlin, Green turtles, Sponges
  • Abiotic Factors: Salt, Water, Sand, Caves

Limiting Factors & Adaptations

In the Tundra limitng factors consist of predation, competition for food, extreme climate, and the lack of sunlight
  • Caribou Have thick fur to keep warm and Move to forest in the winter for protection from wind & snow
  • Wolves have thick hair to reduce heat loss
  • Arctic Foxes are hard to spot because of their thick white fur

  • Stone fish blend in with stones in the ocean
  • The coloring of clown fish warn predators
  • Blue marlin have a swordlike bill which they use to stun pray they are also one of the fastest fish in the world

Symbiotic Relationships


  • Mutualism: the fungus retains water and the green alga produces sugar
  • Commensalism: Birds take shelter in shrubs
  • Parasitism: Ticks stick to animals and suck their blood
Tropical Ocean

  • Mutualism: Anemones protect clownfish from predators
  • Commensalism: Suckerfish eat food off of larger fish
  • Parasitism: Imperial shrimp
