Immediate Impacts
Some things the humans are doing is building houses/shelters, taking
resources, and reproducing.
They cant really help us, because we are all, (except Selena), living in an
underwater dome that they don't know about. There is one thing they could
do, which is kill some of Selena's critters.
They could hurt us by taking our resources, overpopulating, kill us, find and
break our underwater dome, and pollute our waters.

Human Agriculture Practices


What are some main challenges
humans will face?
Finding water
Without water nothing living
can continue to live.
District 1 is aquatic but is salt
water

Finding resources
Humans will build and
construct devices or form
something to survive, but
distric 1 does not have
enough resources for
humans to build their stuff.

Humans will fish to get


food which will probably
end up in over fishing
which will ruin our food
web

Human Agriculture continues...

How our critter survive this?


Humans can affect natural resources because they can liter and they decreased water
quality, increased pollution and greenhouse gas emissions and oil spill
Solution: build a dome
Humans can contribute to climate change
Humans can cause global warming or freeze our biome which can affect our
critters
Solution:immigration

How will humans survive these challenges?


Shortage of water
District 1 has palm trees which could prove a bit of water and we have coconuts
which give a bit of water too.

Carrying Capacity
Carrying capacity is the maximum amount of biomass that an ecosystem can hold.
Limiting factors are environmental conditions that limit the growth of an organism or a population of
organisms in an ecosystem.
Density dependent factors are factors that effects on the size or growth of the population vary with
the population density.
Density independent factors are Both living and non-living things can influence the size of a
population of organisms.
Our carrying capacity is 129,032,164 IB
We are currently at 11,381,938 not including humans.
Including humans we are at 11,501,938
We will not need to find another place to live yet.

Graphing & Carrying Capacity

Relationships
We all have a symbiosis relationship, meaning we all work together. Our
relationship with the humans is strictly parasitism. The humans will be looking for
food, so they will be fishing and wanting to kill us. Only Zach, Andie, Selena, and
Brendon live in the deepwater area so it would be very challenging for the humans
to reach us. If the humans try to attack us we
will attack them back.
When we felt threatened we usually move to a different location and hide or attack
them, depending on the predator. When food was scarce we ate seaweed and
changed our diets so the amount of producers could increase and more food can
be made for us.

Relationships part2
Abby: Her critter gets along with humans, won't attack humans. Reproduces
asexually and lays 100 eggs with an 85% success rate for survival.
Tyler: His critter gets along with humans would not attack. Sexual reproduction and
can makes up to 110 babies.
Selena: Her critter doesn't get along with humans, would attack humans.
Reproduces sexually and can make up to 3 babies.
Brendon: Has a symbiosis relationship with both animals and humans. Has a
asexual reproduction system and can lay up to 200 eggs.

Relationships part3
Ahna: Her critter gets along with humans, would not attack humans if they attack first. Her critter
lays up to 100 eggs with a 85% success rate.
produces asexual and lays 30-120 in one nest with the average of 86 eggs in one nest.
Zach: Zachs critter has a mutualism relationship with other critters and humans. Zach reproduces
sexually and can make about 800 spiders in one egg sack.
Alexia: Alexias critter has a symbiosis relationship with the animals and a mutualism relationship
with the humans. Her critter reproduces asexually and can lay 52-100 eggs in one nest.
Andie: Andies critter has a symbiosis relationship with both humans and animals. Her critter
reproduces asexually and 60 million eggs are sent out in one season, of which only a small
number will become fertilized and grow to become adult clams.

Climate and weather

Using current trends and patterns

According to climate.nasa.gov The 10 warmest years in the 134-year record all have
occurred since 2000. and that the overall global temperature has increased by 1.7
degrees since 1880. This demonstrates an upward trend in temperature, often called
Global Warming, a type of Climate change. We can then predict that the temperature will
continue to rise at about the same rate, if not faster.
This can impact Earths systems, and specifically our district, because a warmer atmosphere
causes the planet's snowpack, glaciers and sea and freshwater ice to melt faster. Melting
glaciers and polar ice sheets will raise the sea level, exposing more dark ocean waters.
These absorb more sunlight than ice, and thus heat the ocean more, which leads to a
cycle of melting and heating. Evaporation of water is like fuel for storms, causing extreme
weather events, such as hurricanes, rising sea levels and coastal flooding, and droughts
and wildfires. The ocean temperatures are increasing because the ocean soaks up 90% of
the extra heat in the atmosphere. Additionally, ocean acidity can be increased by the
amount of carbon in the water. Higher carbon levels increase acidity, which in turn cause
the ocean temperatures to rise.

Climate and weather


Using current trends and patterns
When humans move into our biome they will need resources to live there such
as food, water, and building materials for shelter. With the amount of humans
that will be here, we will likely run out of natural resources quickly.
Additionally, climate change and natural disasters (i.e. earthquakes, tsunamis,
volcanic eruptions, etc.) will impact not only the human populations, but the
critter populations and can potentially cause mass extinctions.

Climate and weather


Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP and carbon dioxide is released by the process cellular
respiration, and oxygen is released through the process of photosynthesis. When these
gasses are released into the environment, they can impact the atmosphere, biosphere,
hydrosphere and geosphere. According to csun.edu s chapter on earths systems and
interactions, If photosynthesis is reduced, atmospheric concentrations of carbon
dioxide can build up and stimulate global warming (atmosphere) which may contribute
to increased melting of glaciers (hydrosphere).

Graphing & Climate Changes

According to World Wildlife Fund, a


sea level increase of 69 cm over
the next 100 years could be
possible.
This means about 1.5 cm per year.

Glacier melt

Warmer water temps

Water expansion

NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT


Natural Resource Management refers to how people and landscapes interact (such as land, water,
soil, plants, and animals). Mainly focusing on how management affects quality of life for future
generations.
Rapid climate change affects creatures ability to adapt meaning a decrease in biodiversity.
