Coastal Oceans by Mind Map: Coastal Oceans

1. Oysters

1.1. opens and closes its shell

1.1.1. Oysters Protect themselves from predators

1.2. turn dirt from the ocean into pearls

1.2.1. preventing irritation inside it

1.2.2. cleaning it's inside

2. Water

2.1. it can turn into solids and gases, and is habitable

2.1.1. gives the oyster a habitat

2.1.2. Provides heat for the oysters in their home.

3. Carbonate Levels

3.1. Increases or decreases

3.1.1. depends on solubility of water

3.1.2. produces proper amounts for oysters to live

4. Carbon Dioxide

4.1. a waste product of the respiratory system

4.1.1. lets the good air go into an organism so it can help that organism survive

4.2. contributes to photosynthesis

4.2.1. helps producers gain energy so they can give it to other organisms

4.2.2. gives oysters energy through producers

5. Temperature

5.1. Increases and decreases in different parts of the world

5.1.1. to prevent extreme weather conditions

5.2. Changes based on the Earth’s rotation

5.2.1. provides the proper environment for different organisms at different times

6. Oyster Beds

6.1. Contains oysters

6.1.1. Provides shelter and a habitat for the oyster

6.1.2. Provides a habitat for other organisms as well

7. Algae

7.1. It grows using sunlight

7.1.1. helps it to thrive so it can produce oxygen for other organisms

7.2. consumes carbon dioxide and releases oxygen

7.2.1. produces oxygen for other organisms

7.2.2. takes in carbon dioxide that causes climate change

7.2.3. takes away carbon dioxide that can kill the oysters

8. Phytoplankton

8.1. Producer

8.1.1. creates food for other organisms

8.1.2. does photosynthesis and gives energy to organisms

8.1.3. provides oysters with food

9. Zooplankton

9.1. Consumer

9.1.1. transfers energy through the food web

9.1.2. controls the population of producers

9.1.3. provides food for the oysters

9.2. Heterotrophic

10. Crabs

10.1. Use their pincers

10.1.1. to protect themselves.

10.1.2. to scare anything away from their area.

10.2. Form a thick exoskeleton shell

10.2.1. to protect themselves

10.3. Eats oysters

10.3.1. to keep the food web balanced

11. Fish

11.1. Consumes zooplankton

11.1.1. stops overgrowth of zooplankton

11.1.2. stops overgrowth of oysters by limiting their food

12. Sharks

12.1. Consumes fish

12.1.1. stops overgrowth of fish

12.1.2. controls the amount of oyster's predators

13. pH levels

13.1. Increase and decreases

13.1.1. determines the acidity of an object

13.1.2. provides a good acidity level for an oysters habitat

14. Rays from the sun

14.1. Emits radiation

14.1.1. supports life on Earth

14.1.2. gives oysters sunlight in order to survive

15. Water Salinity

15.1. makes bodies of water have different salt levels

15.1.1. helps marine life

15.1.2. The salt water helps oysters survive.

16. Seaweed

16.1. removes algae from water

16.1.1. stops overgrowth of algae

16.1.2. keeps the food web going

17. Seagrass

17.1. Changes nutrients into its own food

17.1.1. creates food for other organisms

17.1.2. Does photosynthesis for other organisms

17.1.3. Another producer to maintain the food web in balance.

18. Oxygen

18.1. It is combustible

18.1.1. helps increase fires

18.1.2. gives oysters the ability to breathe
