Heat Flow, Heat Budget, Life Forms Heat flow (Abioticheat) 98% heat Heat flow (Bioticchemical) 2% heat Heat budget: input(income)= output(spending) Counter current flow Loop of Henle → concentrates water Heat conservation → water thermal conductivity Marine mammals [3738 °C] ● Dominate predator in arctic (cold water) 8°C ● Can move faster than other mammals ● Flippers loses heat when it hits water Heat Budget of plants Hot- wet places → Tropics → large flat leaves Leaf shape capture NRG (energy), Transpir Hot - Dry places (monsoon effect) → conserve water, minimize the surface area [India and Florida] Saguaro Cactus ● Small surface area ● Radiation coming out of it ● Low sun (½ intensity record) Hot part of the year places Hot part of the year broad leaves Cold part of the year drop leaves Warm temperate Cool places (Southern Canada) Boreal forest (conifers) Water less available Needle leaves fewer stomata → overheating confection takes heat out of it → winter if leaf gets too cold confection puts heat back in from the air Cold polar: Tundra Plants are tiny and NO TREES Balance Heat Budget= Ecosystem structure
