Enviromental Science Mind Map - Joe


A living entity.


Same type of animals living in a given area.


Several populations interacting in a given area.


Several communities interacting with their enviorment


Many ecosystems in one, with a specific climate.


A biome that has a specific climate (humid and alot of percipitation) and destinctive orgranisms.

Temperate Deciguous forest

A biome of trees with leaves

Coniferous forest

A biome of trees with needles (pine needles etc.)


A biome with a hot, humid climate and destinctive organisms.


A very cold climate. Most of the time snow is involved.

Freshwater Biome

A biome of non-salt (fresh) water and destinctive species to that water conditions.

Marine Biome

A biome of salt water and destinctive oganisms that can live in that water conditions.


A usually dry area with mostly grassland.

Food Chain

A chain of species being eaten by its predaor and then its predator, etc. until the largest animal with no predators

Food Web

A number of species in a "web" that shows more then one predator per species most of the time. Also it usually shows a predators mutiple preys.


First organism on a food chain or web and it is a plant that transfers energy to a consumer.

Primary Consumer

The first degree of a consumer that usually feeds of the Producer.

Secondary Consumer

The second degree of a consumer typically shown in a food chain or web, it usually feeds on the Primary Consumer.

Tertiary Consumer

The third degree of a consumer typically shown in a food chain or web, it usually feeds on the Secondary Consumer.


Bacteria of organisms that break down/eat dead orgranisms

Trophic Levels

Stages in a food chain.

Biotic Factors

Living factors in an environment.

Abiotic Factors

Non-living factors in an environment.

Hot Spot

Area where fires commonly occur.

Threatened Species

Species that are in danger of being endangered.

Endangered Species

When there are very few organisms of its kind left.

Ecological Succession

Progressive succession until a climax community is established.

Primary Succession

Development of life that was previously barren, usually where a disaster has occurred.

Secondary Succession

Usually whens shrubs start to grow in a previously barren habitat.

Pioneer Species

Species that colonize and colonized habitat.

Climax Community

New node

Limiting Factors

Factors that limit the growth of populations.

Carrying Capacity

The capacity a environment can hold.

Population Growth

The growth pfpopulations.

Population Growth Rate

The rate at which populations rise.

Exponential Growth

Development at an increasingly fast rate.


Graph where the graph is leveled off then quickly grows.


Graph where it goes up then goes back down.

Water Pollution

Pollution that washes into water.It could be trash, fertilizers, animal waste etc.


A underground source of water.


The process in which salt water has the salt removed from it.

Water Purification

Process in which water is purified of its pollutants.


Where a bunch of rivers run to a common source.


A surface where water can't soak into it


Where water erodes objects, commonly rocks.


Where water runs off an impermeable surface.


A biome where excess runoff water commonly collects.


Its when organisms habitat is cut down and is replaced by buildings.

Point Source

Pollution that comes from a traceable source.

Non-Point Source

Pollution that doesn't come from a direct source Ex: Storm Drains

Organic Pollutant

Something that is organic but has pollutants in it.

Inorganic Pollutant

Things like fertilizers and other man made products that pollute.

Natural Resources

Resources that come from Earth like trees, wind and water.

Nonrenewable Resources

Resources that won't replenish itself within mans lifetime.

Renewable Resources

Resources that will replenish itself within mans lifespan.
