What are the 5 types of aquatic zones?

What are the 5 types of aquatic zones?

Aquatic Zones. Pelagic zone (made up of (upper) photic zone and (lower) aphotic zone), abyssal zone (deep in the aphotic zone), benthic zone (home to detritus feeders and benthos) Wetlands. Ecosystems of several types in which vegetation is surrounded by stand water during part of the year.

In which aquatic life zone do we find ecosystems with the world’s highest net primary productivity per unit area?

coastal zones
Ecosystems in coastal zones have a high net primary productivity per unit area. They constitute 10% of the oceans and contain 90% of all marine species.

Which of the following aquatic life zones has the greatest biodiversity?

Coral reefs are the most biologically divers aquatic life zones. In coral reefs many species live and interact with one another in complex ecological relationships.

What four zones are found in most lakes?

The zones discussed are the Littoral Zone, Limnetic Zone, Profundal Zone, Euphotic Zone, and Benthic Zone. The Littoral Zone is the shore area of the lake or pond. The littoral zone consists of the area from the dry land sloping to the open water and can be very narrow or very wide.

Which 3 ecosystems have the highest productivity?

The world’s ecosystems vary tremendously in productivity, as illustrated in the following figures. In terms of NPP per unit area, the most productive systems are estuaries, swamps and marshes, tropical rain forests, and temperate rain forests (see Figure 4).

Which ecosystems have the highest productivity?

The highest net primary productivity in terrestrial environments occurs in swamps and marshes and tropical rainforests; the lowest occurs in deserts.

Which location has the greatest biodiversity?

Brazil is the Earth’s biodiversity champion. Between the Amazon rainforest and Mata Atlantica forest, the woody savanna-like cerrado, the massive inland swamp known as the Pantanal, and a range of other terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, Brazil leads the world in plant and amphibian species counts.

Which lake zones is similar to the coastal zone of the ocean?

The littoral zone or nearshore is the part of a sea, lake, or river that is close to the shore. In coastal environments, the littoral zone extends from the high water mark, which is rarely inundated, to shoreline areas that are permanently submerged.
