Ecology, Ecosystems

3. What is the role of natural cycles and what part do we play in your ecosystem? Discuss three natural cycles and their effects. What do species do to adapt? Be specific.

4. Name four ways quality of life and sustainability can be enhanced. Name four (4) ways you can create a structure for these sustainability qualities. Be specific.

5. What is meant by "a template for sustainability"? Include in your answer conservation and sustainment of natural resources. What are good resources for local citizens to create a livable future (list at least 5) and state the reason you chose these.

6. What are the exact pattern of ecology to keep in balance and the rise of greenhouse gases and global warming where you live for water, open space and biodiversity preservation? How can we positively or negatively effect biomes to inner cities? What can we do? Discuss some steps in sustainable living that will benefit the present and the future? Who is doing these where you live?

7. What is your approach to preserve our future through environmental / ecological design, health and biodiversity? Give an exact example regarding what is being done where you live for each category just listed (health, design and biodiversity), as well as a contact name and number. What will you do?

Most of this should be answered in your own words. A small percentage can be quoted w/citations (say no more than 20%) of your answer.

The roles of the natural cycles is to get balance from one comes in and what gets out so that the Earth and its atmosphere is regulated . Because the planet is constantly changing. The natural cycles will balance and regulate the Earth and its atmosphere. For example, the natural cycles can create the air we breathe, the climate we live in, and the food and water we eat.

Water cycles - the water cycle began when the sun's heat causes water from the oceans and lakes to evaporate into the atmosphere. When the atmosphere cools, water vapor condenses and making the clouds that produce rain or snow.
Water cycle has three states: ice, liquid, and vapor.
Different species live in habitat that are adapted to their survival. Polar bear live in the ice cold Alaska front. Fish live in oceans and lakes. Some microbes live in the air.

Carbon cycle - in the atmosphere, carbon is in the form of carbon dioxide. Plant used ...

Solution Summary

The role of the natural cycles has a great impact on the ecosystem. Three natural cycles have important roles in balancing and regulating the Earth and its atmosphere. They are the water cycles, the carbon cycles, and the nitrogen cycles. The water cycle began when the sun's heat causes water from the oceans and lakes to evaporate into the atmosphere. When the atmosphere cools, water vapor condenses and making the clouds that produce rain or snow. The carbon cycle began when carbon is in the form of carbon dioxide. Plant used carbon dioxide and sunlight for photosynthesis. Plants that die become bury in soils and turn into fossil fuels. When Human burn fossils fuel for energy and most carbon is released back into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gase that trap heat in the atmosphere. Nitrogen cycle began when you breathe in nitrogen everyday. About the majority of the molecule in the air is nitrogen. All living things need nitrogen. Most plants get the nitrogen they need from soil, and fertilizer can add nitrogen to grow plants. Nitrogen in soil and water cause plant to grow fast and die sooner.
