Physical and chemical factors on a running water ecosystem
This tutorial continues from the previous one, which introduced lotic (running water) communities. Here, some of the physical and chemical factors that provide the framework of a running water community in which organisms in their favored ecological niches occupy are presented.
Such factors all play a part in the lives of animals and plants occupying the lotic environment. The next tutorials, e.g. Lotic Communities & Algae, look at how plants and animals exist in such an ecosystem.
