- b This encourages plant and algae growth. When the plants and algae die, bacteria break them down. The bacteria use oxygen to do this and the oxygen levels go down. Animals and other organisms that live in the water die from lack of oxygen.

5 True/False questions
Proton → An electrically charged atom that ha gained or lost one or more electrons
Compound → a pure substance composed of two or more elements chemically combined.
Salt → type of wetland; Covered by water year round; Trees :Bald cypress, water tupelo often draped in Spanish moss. Animals: Crawfish, choupique, herons, ibises, egrets)
Eat-out → coastal regions where salt water mixes with fresh water from rivers, rainfall, and runoff; includes intermediate, brackish and salt marshes, Some organisms need varying salinities at different times in their life cycles
How can non-native species (nutria) can effect and ecosystem? → Because they are non-native, they have no natural enemies to control their numbers. They create a problem in the marsh because they eat the marsh grasses and dig up the roots. The roots keep the soil stable. When they are destroyed, the plant dies and the soil erodes away more easily.
