Hi Ms. F
Renewable resources can be remade and reused.
If you use the renewable, they can be remade and reused which makes the Earth more green and less polluted.
How long does it take for these to decompose?
a. Tin Can- 50 years
b. Glass Bottle- 1 million years
c. Disposable Diaper- 450 years
d. Wood- About 20 years
e. Paper- 2 to 3 weeks
f. Plastic Grocery Bag- 10-20 years
g. Styrofoam Cup- It does not biodegrade
h. Aluminum Can- 200-250 years
i. Cotton T-shirt- 500 years
j. Apple Core- 2 months
k. Did any of these surprise you?- Apple core. I thought it would be a shorter amount of time.
Great Pacific Garbage Patch
The "garbage patch" is a popular name for concentrations of marine debris in the North Pacific Ocean. Quit dumping into the ocean.
Tropical Rain Forest- South America/Africa lots of rain- tree
Dead Zones in the Gulf of Mexico
The hypoxic zone in the northern Gulf of Mexico is an area along the Louisiana-Texas coast, where water near the bottom of the Gulf contains less than 2 parts per million of dissolved oxygen, causing a condition referred to as hypoxia . Fertilizers and chemicals cause this. Put the fertilizers down in a spot where it doesn't run off.
A species on which other species in an ecosystem largely depend, such that if it were removed the ecosystem would change drastically.
The inevitable elimination from a habitat of one of two different species with identical needs for resources.

2.The Grey Squirrel
a. Coexistence- Policy of living peacefully. 1. Married couples. 2. Friends living together.
b. Parasites- An organism that lives in or on another organism (its host) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the host's expense. Fleas, tapeworm.
c. Mimicry- the action or art of imitating someone or something, typically in order to entertain or ridicule. Snakes and catepillars.
d. Mutualism- The doctrine that mutual dependence is necessary to social well-being. Flower and bee.
e. Commensalism- An association between two organisms in which one benefits and the other derives neither benefit nor harm. Anemonefishes and Atlantic puffin
Tiny particles that are released when fuels are burned cause global dimming. Like global warming, this process may change rainfall patterns around the world. The amount of sunlight reaching the Earth's surface has decreased by about 2 per cent every ten years, because more sunlight is being reflected back into space. Because we are losing daylight slowly.
The Greenhouse Effect
The trapping of the sun's warmth in a planet's lower atmosphere due to the greater transparency of the atmosphere to visible radiation from the sun than to infrared radiation emitted from the planet's surface.
Because we are trapping more carbon dioxide in the Earth.
It becomes endangered when the population decreases and the animals aren't reproducing.
Our Earth would be affected if it was a Keystone species.
Human should care because animals are a crucial part of the world whether its food or pest reduction.
Heat, Water, Food, and Shelter.
A substance used for destroying insects or other organisms harmful to cultivated plants or to animals.
It kills species that could actually be useful to humans.
