Question

Can someone help its really important/ ill give brainliest and more points When designing a scientific presentation, look for the most credible sources. Science doesn’t show bias, but we humans tend to show bias. There are sites and articles that provide facts without proper scientific evidence. Avoid using information from such sites. You must be able to identify reliable sites so the data in your presentation is credible. Use sources that end in .gov (government sites), such as CDC.gov. They are reliable sources. You can also use sites ending in .edu. They can be deemed trustworthy, but sometimes the information is written by students rather than scientists. Always find out who the author of the article is before proceeding. Some .org and .com sites are credible, but you need to analyze the contents to verify their authenticity. As you review a source, always try to answer these questions: Who authored the article? Is this person an expert in biodiversity? What is the purpose of the article? Does the article state facts that scientists can prove with evidence? Are there opinions in the article? How old is the article? Do other credible sources support the statements in this article?

Answer

The Freshwater Biome is a highly complex biome that is present all around the world. Two major types of freshwater biomes include the running or lotic biomes, which consist of rivers and streams, and standing or lentic biomes, which include ponds and lakes. In this biome, small fish serve as prey to larger fish like bass, trout, and pike, which are then consumed by birds, large mammals, and humans. There are several symbiotic relationships present in the freshwater biome - for instance, the relationship between the freshwater sponge and spongillafly exemplifies parasitism, where the spongillafly lays its eggs on the sponge before its offspring feeds off it. Additionally, mutualistic relationships exist where smaller fish enter and clean the mouths of larger fish, while consuming the debris in the process. The availability of sunlight and salinity are two major limiting factors in the freshwater biome. Sunlight availability is essential for photosynthesis without which most plants cannot thrive, and salinity must be at a level of 0.5% or less for most organisms to survive. The carrying capacity of the freshwater biome is dependent on its size, location, and availability off sunlight. Dams and desalination are two commonly employed processes for the preservation of freshwater resources, but it needs to be noted that not all countries have the resources to implement such methods effectively. From a microeconomic perspective, the cost of freshwater is likely to soar if resources start to diminish. It is important to note that freshwater distribution around the globe is highly uneven, and this may have a significant impact on freshwater’s supply and demand in the future.
