Biome PA is Mostly Made of...

IMPORTANT TO KNOW!

Temperate Deciduous Forest

Ecosystem

A group of biotic and abiotic factors interacting with one another in the same habitat

Examples of Ecosystems

Wetlands

River

Ocean

Woods

Desert

Coral Reef

Abiotic Factors

Non-living, or never having lived.

Examples

Stones

Water

Sunlight

Dirt

Pond-Water

Rocks

Biotic Factors

Absolutly living, or at one time was living, or was part or a piece of something that was living.

Examples

Branch

Leaves

Plants

Animals

Community

Groups of different living organisms living together.

Example

Bear, Deer, and Fish

Population

A group of organisms.

Example

Bears

Organism

A single life form.

Example

Bear

Food Chain

Only shos one option for how get energy.

Food Web

All differen't possibilities in each catagory for there energy sources.

Hot Spots

More then half of Earth's spiecies found in 17 regions, covering about 2% of land.

Trophic Levels

Enegy Levels

Tertiary Cosumers

3 degree consumers

Secondary Consumers

2 degree consumers. Organisms that feed off 1 degree consumers

Primary Consumers

1 degree consumers. Organisms that feed off producers.  

Producers

Plants- Photosythesis

Decomposers

Biodiversity

A lot of differen't spiecies in one area who work together to leep it working right.

Genetc Biodiversity

Spiecies Biodiversity

Ecosystm Biodivrsity

Spieces

Endangred

In danger of extinction throughout mostor all of the area it inhabits.

Threatned

Likely to become endangered soon but aren't there yet.

Indicator

Spiecies that tells wether habitat is healthy or not.

Pioneer

One of the first spicies of its kind and establishes itslf.

Curves

S-cuve

Goes after it reaches and get past carrying compacity.

J-cure (exponential growth)

Goes only until it reaches carrying compacity or until it reaches its limit.

Successions

Ecologcal

A process in witch the communites of an ecosystem change overtime.

Primary

Occurs at an ecosystem that never exsisted before.

Example, New Volcanic Islands

Seondary

Begins in an ecosystem that was destroyed.  

Example, Fire, Flood

Climax Community

Form in the last stage of succession.  

Limiting Factors

Conditions of the enviorment that limit the growth of a spiecies. Biotic and Abiotic factors that prevent the continuous growth of population.

Exaples

Preditors/Prey

Food Source

Water

Disease

Space

Carrying Compacity

Number of individual spiecies that an ecosystem can support.

Popultion Growth Rate

Sources

Point-Source

The waste water that come from an identified source leading directly into a body of water.  

Non Point-Source

Pollution we can not identify where it is directly comming from.  

Natural Resources

Materials or things people use from the Earth.

Renewable Resources

Any material or energy source that cycles or can be replaced within a human lifespan.

Example, Tree's, Plants, Animals

Non Renewable Resources

Any material or energy source that cannot be replaced during a human lifespan.

Example, Oil, rocks, Coal

Watershed

A vast collection area where all the rain, snow, streams, and land water join together in a comonly body of water.

Impermeable

A surface where water can't get through.

Example

Pavement

Cement

Polutants

Organic

Examples, Detergants, Disinfecting Products, Cosmetic Products, Tree & Bush Debris

Non-Organic

Examples, Fertilizers, Sediment, Heavy Metals, So2

Erosion

When the surface of Earth is worn away by water, wind, or waves.

Runoff

Rain water that runs off into streams.

Urbanization

Desalination

To remove salt or other mineral from water by heating it and then recollecting it.

Water Purification

Aquifer

Water pollution

Pollution to water with anything that could make the drinkable water undrinkable. Such as dumping wastes in any body of water.
