• Describes the interactions between organisms in the everglades
The Everglades region of Florida is also called the "River of Grass" because of its shallow waters trickling down from Lake Okeechobee and its waving fields of saw grass. Many animals call the River of Grass their home, from insects to alligators. [ Until recently, land developers failed to understand the delicate relationship between the animals of the region and their water source, which led
to the near extinction of several species. The Everglades is a rare and biologically diverse region, at one time extending from Lake Okeechobee southward to Florida Bay. With yearlong subtropic temperatures and fresh water, the Everglades is the perfect habitat for a wide array of animals. There are more than 50 types of reptiles in the Everglades, including the American alligator. Thousands of insects and marine animals teem in the lowland mangroves and marshes, making this habitat a haven for migratory birds, as well. There are nearly 45 mammalian species in the Everglades, some of which are rare and endangered. ]

Discuss the positive and negative impacts of policing in your community. Provide specific examples to support your discussion.
Weegy: In the positive category Policing provides for: a safer living environment the maintenance of an orderly society the service of justice in relation to crimes committed In the Negative category modern policing has had several impacts: Targeted [ enforcement for crimes such as DUI and traffic violations have spawned "cottage industries" in which the government increasingly relies on revenues from the arrests for such crimes and thus trial and defense attorneys build their entire practice around one type of offense creating an over inflated symbiotic relationship. When the government and attorneys overly rely on a specific type of enforcement activity for their livelyhood this bogs down the court system dramatically. These targeted enforcement activities also have the potential to and commonly result in the abuse of the general public. When the goverment needs more revenues targeted enforcement is stepped up and a greater percentage of the population is invovled in police action. When that doesnt work more strict laws are implemented to provide for more arrests which results in an overly oppressive state. This oppressive state causes trial and defense attorneys as well as judges to in effect pass legislation from inside the courtroom in the from of "case law" based on the outcomes of trials. These trials generally hinge on the minutia of the case and adminitrative details rather than any violation of rights or wrong doing by the Police. It's basically getting a criminal out of trouble on a technicalityt. Most of the time this results in greater rights for criminals who end up back on the street committing crimes. ] (More)

• Describes the major categories of organisms: producers, consumers, and decomposers of the everglades
Weegy: Food chains and food webs describe the flow of energy and nutrients through organisms in an ecosystem. The entry point into the food web are the primary producers, with other organisms feeding on the primary producers or each other. [ The food web progresses until organisms die or excrete waste, which is broken down by decomposers. While organisms in a food web may be given a specific trophic level, many organisms fulfill multiple roles at various times. For example, omnivorous animals may shift between being a primary consumer feeding on plant material to a secondary or tertiary consumer feeding on other animals as food availability changes. Primary producers are organisms that uptake nutrients and energy from inorganic sources and convert it into usable energy and nutrients for themselves and consequently, any organisms that feeds on the primary producer. Plants are the most familiar primary producers in our daily lives using photosynthesis to convert sunlight energy into chemical energy and uptaking their nutrients from the surrounding environment. However, plants are accompanied in this role by algae and photosynthetic bacteria. Some organisms, such as the Archaeans that inhabit deep-sea hydrothermal vents, are able to derive their energy from inorganic chemicals rather than sunlight through chemosynthesis. Primary consumers are organisms that feed directly on primary producers. Among animals, these organisms are often termed grazers or herbivores and often feed on plants or algae. While zebras, giraffes and cattle may easily come to mind as primary consumers, many primary consumers are much smaller, such as insect pests of crops. The energy and nutrients absorbed from the primary producers is incorporated in the cells and tissues of the primary consumer which, in turn, may become the food source for subsequent trophic levels.

• Evaluates potential hazards caused by humans that might affect the everglades stability, such as environmental pollution. What effect does this hazard have on the biodiversity in the everglades
Weegy: This means that the everglades have a high amount of different species and types of plants and animals. Biodiversity means that the biotic things in the area are different from each other. [ This is good for an environment because if a swarm of insects that eats one type of tree attempts to invade a forest ,and the forest has biodiversity the forest will survive because the insects cant eat all of the trees. ] (More)
