Ph :- This is a measure of the acidity of the soil.It is measured

with Ph paper.Acid turns pH paper red .The soil in high rainfall

areas tends to be acidic.Plants like rhododendrons and azaleas

Water flow rate :- this tells us the flow rate of moving water.We can

measure this by using a cork and seeing how fast it flows in a stream.

These animals have streamlined bodies to cope with the

fast moving streams.They are shown on the next slide.Take a note

of their names.

Population change

Within each habitat , we find populations of different living things.

A population is the number of a particular species in a certain area.

For example we may have a local magpie population.

Climate affects populations , for example the Osprey shown below

migrate to Africa in the winter to return to breed in the spring.
