  1. there alike because there caves and the everglades both have water and streams mostly wherever you go. There different because caves are underground and Everglades are on top of the ground.

  2. Caves and everglades are different than the chaparral forest because the forest is dry and the caves and everglades are wet.There all three alike because they have lots of the same animals,
    like bugs,also there's nocturnal animals in all location's,like bats.

    1.The ecosystems are alike because they all have wild life







    2.The ecosystems are different because the Chaparral Ecosystem is dry and hot it has shrubs that can be set on fire the cave ecosystems are below the surface and have stalactites and stalagmites. The Florida bay or the Everglades ecosystem is wet and has reptiles ,birds,and mammals and is the only place in the world where crocs and gators live side by side.

  4. They are alike by they all have animals to fit the environment like cave crickets in the cave or the everglades have alligators or the chaparral has probably hyenas. They also have vegetation in the erea like roots in the cave erea.they are different by the cave is underground. The chaparral has dry deserty type of erea the everglades are wet, very wet!

  5. How the ecosystems are alike is that there cave ecosystem has water and is wet also is south Florida's Everglades.

    How the ecosystems are different is that the caves have bats but the Everglades have alligators and manatees. Another way that there different is that the caves have the hollow inside and have a covering from the inside , and the Everglades is all water , trees , and grass followed by animals.

  6. Some ways they are alike is that they all have like a keeper of their own ecosytem. They all have a unique way about their habitat. They all have no swamps. That all have hazards. Some ways they are different that all have different type of animals around their habitat. They all have different ways of not ruining their habitat.

  10. One is above ground with much vegetation and has different animals like alligators while the other one is under ground with different animals like bats

    1. 2 they are similar because they both contain wildlife and they both have things that are not very usual like caves have many different rocks and chemicals and the other one has these sun plants that give food for the animals

  11. All of the Ecosistems are the same because they all have a wide range of animals in other words many diferent species live in each Ecosistem but all the animls are not the same.The diference is in one Ecosistem the habitat they live in is a cave so there is many bats, bugs,and troglobites.Those are the species that live there but there are many parts in caves that are called stallagmites, stallagmites grow from the ground of caves then there is stalagcites they grow from the ceiling.

  12. The comparison between South Florida the caves are dry but South Florida is really wet and the word chaparell is for both because it's supposed to be in wet and dry places like water or land and wildfires are the important part to a heathy chaparell ecosystem

  13. The three ecosystems are alike, because
    -they all have animals
    -they all have ecosystems in the United States
    -they all are surrounded by plants
    -they all have something to do with water
    -they all teach you about something!

    The three ecosystems are different, because

    1. - chapperal ecosystems mainly talks about fire and hot heat. The first video mainly talks about water and what lives in the water.The second video mainly talks about caves, what is in the caves, and how they where formed.

      - they take place differently. The chapperal ecosystem took place in the state California,Mexico,Austrailia, Chile, and South Africa. The first video took place in the Florida Bay and the Everglades. The second video took place in Mammoth Cave, a volcano cave, and a cave with a really big room.

      -The ecosystems have a spacific type of animal. The chapperal ecosystem doesn't mention one, but the first video animal is the American alligator and crocodile. The second video animal is the Rock cricket and bats.

      That's how the Three ecosystems are alike and how they are different!!!

  14. 1. The ecosystems are alike,because they are both natural things that happen in life. 2.The ecosystems are different,because one is about the forest and the Everglade.My other reason is they are talking about caves and bats and how they do things

  15. The chapperrel has many desert animals like lizards snakes and coyote's to but the ever glades are mostly home to marine animals like fish but there's alligators and crocadiles flamingos and pelicans cave animals are called troglobites and they have no eyes

  16. They are alike because all of the ecosystems have a important mystery to our world like in the caves there are Native American writings, in the Everglades there are the secrets of the animals, and in the chapperal ecosystem there are the wild fires and so many of them to.
    They are all different because the weather, the weather in the caves are no wind because it is underground, the everglade are very wet and the chapperals are very dry .

  17. A way they are all different is that because in the Chaparral Ecosystem is in the desert and it is very hot and dry so that is why there is always a lot of wildfires. But in Florida, where the everglades are, there is a whole bunch of water and rivers.

  18. 2. The cave is a dark environment so they have no eyes they feel there way around and the chapperrel its very bright and hot and caves are cold but the everglades are mostly warm with lots of water for marine life.

    1. Another difference could be,that the Chaparral Ecosystem talks about what the causes are to wild fires and what the effects are on them.

  19. How the ecosystems such as the chaparral ecosystem and the Everglades are alike because they both are a plant and animal community. How the chaparral ecosystem is plant and animal community is because there are lots of very flammable plant growth that builds up in between for seasons. How the Everglades ecosystem is plant and animal community is that it has lots of grass and trees and lots of animals such as alligators , birds , mammals , and reptiles.

    How the ecosystems such as the chaparral ecosystem and the Everglades ecosystem are different is because the Everglades is always wet but the chaparral ecosystem is only wet in winter and the Everglades is always wet because it a pond.

  20. Ok. Let's see if this works. If it doesn't, Mrs. Grimes may get angry.

  21. A way they are different the weather it is either hot or rainy or cold.Another way they are different there different animals like alligators,bats,and insects. One way they are alike is they all are strange like caves,rivers,and desert.They are because you can learn new things about them every day.Another way they are alike they all have a lot of animals that live there like bats live in caves and alligators live in rivers and insects live in forests.

  22. I think the three ecosystems are different,because the Chaparral Ecosystems talks about what the causes are to wild fires and what the effects are on them.And the Cave ecosystem also talks about what types of animals that live in caves/Bats/Rock Crickets and what scientists do to study caves.Finally, the Water Glaze ecosystem was about how people live and and also how they have many types of birds,reptiles,fish,and insects.
    And know I am going to talk about how those three ecosystems are alike.All three ecosystems are alike because they all three are talking about nature.Also,how they form and how they were created.

  23. The cave video and the Florida are alike because the both have mamels. The cave video has bats and the Florida video has manatees.The Florida video and the chaparral are alike because the both are wet. In the chaparral it says"Winters in this ecosystem are mild and wet." The Florida video it says that the Everglades is a supply of water.

    One way that the chaparral is different from the caves is caves is more water and chaparral is more fire.In the cave video it says "Some caves are formed by water." In chaparral it says"Lots of very flammable plant growth builds up in between fire seasons."

  24. And there is not really a whole lot of wild fires. But in a lot of caves it is dark and there is a lot of gross bugs and lots of bats. But something that makes all these similar is that they all have creatures you wouldn't find on you everyday basis. You cannot find animals like flamingos, mannetees , or even a lot of bats flying randomly out of a cave. This is how I know that I can compare caves, the ever galdes in Florida, and the Chaparral.��

  25. The ecosystems are similar because they each have lots of animals, like the cave, the cave has bats,crickets and lots of other insects .The everglades has alligators,fish and many types of birds.The ecosystems are different because the chaparral ecosystem is very dry and hot and probably dosen't get a lot of water.The everglades has lots of water and animals.The cave is most likely dark and cool the cave is also underground unlike the everglades and the chaparral .This is how all three ecosystems are alike and different.

  26. 1. The ecosystems are alike because they both have water.
    I know this because in the first video it has pond`s,lakes,and swamp.
    I know that the second video has water is because in the cave they have water flowing down to the bottom of the cave.
    Another reason how they are alike is that they both have animals.
    I know they both have animals because in the first video they have animals like alligators,crocodiles,birds,and others.Also they`re all outside animals to, but sometimes they go inside something. I know that the second video has animals because caves have animals like bats, rock crickets,slugs,worms ,and other animals that are small.Also they are inside an small.
    2. They are different because the first video has big animals and animals that can be seen well.The second video has small animals and you have to be quiet and use your EYES.I know this because the first video you have birds flying above you and because there are animals right in front of you.I know that you have to be quiet and use your EYES because the small animals are under small or big rocks. I know that you have to be quiet because bats dont come out until dark and quiet.

  29. 1.The order of the biomes is tunda,taiga,deciduous forest,,desserts,and tropical rarain forest

    2.Climate zones near the equator are warmer because the zone near the equator receives more solar energy than other zones,it is warmer.

    3.Landforms variations effect climate by

    1. Climate, and high elevations ,such as rocky mountains.

      4.The tropical rain forest and the deciduous forest are different, because the deciduous forest is very cold and is the sun does not shine alot and the rain forest rains almost everyday and is hot and also there are more animals and plants in the rain forest.
      And the tropical rain forestand the deciduous forest are alike because they both have a lot of animals and trees.
