    my gut instinct is to say that bacteria would have the greatest mass, this is because that all multicellular living things have a significant amount of bacteria inside of them. however, i am not that familiar with pond ecosystems, apart from the time i spend fishing them. if this is a question for a class the answer is likely plants and plankton, both of which are clearly visible in the pond ecosystem. and occur in large numbers. to attempt to answer your second question, i assume you are also talking about a pond environment? if that is the case pollution plays a major role. apart from all the nasty things you usually hear about pollution with the polar bears being pissed of and all. in a pond ecosystem pollution will have a major effect on both fish and amphibians. a very small amount of pollution can drastically affect amphibians and has caused them to be considered a thermometer of ecological health. fish are also affected strongly by pollution and endure disturbing mutations and killings sue to various types pf pollution
