4. Construction sites release more fossil fuels that add to the additional pollution in the area to LAX making the environment toxic and overall weakening the ozone layer (AUSTRALIA) Interactions 1. Many species depend on energy from another species by consumption to survive 2. Destroying this ecosystem could cause a disturbance in the food web interrupting food resources for predator species making food scares that could lead to extinction of that species in that particular habitat. 3. Also destroying the ecosystem could create an overpopulation in the food web not giving access for the predator to consume the prey which could in some form create a type of (DOMINANT SPECIES) in this area

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
