EVR 3/22/16  ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE o Is a very complex phenomenon  Nature is Dynamic o Nature does not change much unless humans change it, or so it appears to the human eye. Nature is actually ever-changing  We as humans pay attention to larger things, like trees and large animals, as opposed to the small details. This is why we don’t see much change o Fundamental properties of ecosystems: structure, function, and change  Succession  Quite often is cyclical  Evolution  Happens so slowly, that we rarely notice it  Visual changes aren’t often present  Darwin’s Finches are a classic example of evolution  Disturbance Regime  Disturbances need to reoccur so that the climax community can be reached  Stochastic/extreme disturbance  Stochastic will get you to secondary succession  Extreme will get you closer to climax community  One example is the massive Mount Saint Helen eruption in 1980  Population Dynamics  Predator-prey relationship  Ecological release o Predator release  If the predator is decimated, you don’t have top-down control, that is one less density- dependent factor  Species Invasion  Feral cats  Old World Climbing Fern  Predator-Mediated Competition  Human-Caused Changes  Humans cutting down trees, made the Haitian Earthquake more devastating 2
