Pineland ForestRACHEL JIMERSONINT1 TASK 2Pineland Forest of New Jersey Estelle Manor, New Jerseyhttp://www.superstock.comThe Ecosystem Biotic Components: deer, plant species, corn crop,insects, woodland birds, dry pine, cedar, and oaktrees, (Gross, 2010). Abiotic Components: water usage and precipitation,temperature, sunlight. Abiotic factors interact with the ecosystem with thesuns reduction of carbon dioxide, and the formationof sugars through photosynthesis. Endangered Species: the Bald Eagle, and the PineBarrens Tree Frog.Human Impact Hunters are needed to control the amount of deer. Humans also impact the ecosystem by making roads,thus destroying vegetation and habitats.http://3dparks.wr.usgs.gov/nyc/images/fig138.jpgFuture Human Impact Approximately 1/3 of the Pinelands is publicallyowned, which means the state cannot control thehunting season, which in turn will affect the numberof animals remaining in the habitat in the future. Comprehensive programs are needed to preserveindigenous plants and animals, (Markta, 2005).Guidelines for Preservation It is necessary for hunters to bring deer to checkstations, where the age, and sex can be verified forbetter preservation of wildlife (Markta, 2005). Suppression of wildfires is essential to themaintenance of the ecosystem. Control of the fireswill directly protect vegetation, and many rarespecies.nrs.fs.fed.usReferences Markta, S.
