Biodiversity

Biodiversity is the variation of life forms within a given ecosystem, biome, or for the entire Earth. Biodiversity is often used as a measure of the health of biological systems. The biodiversity...

Hot Spot

Hot Spots are where a large amount of different types of species live. 2% of the land hot spots are in 17 regions and many of them are in the tropics.

Species

Endangered Species

An endangered species is a population of organisms which is at risk of becoming extinct because it is either few in numbers, or threatened by changing environmental or predation parameters. Also...

Jaguar

Tiger

Threatened Species

Threatened species are any species (including animals, plants, fungi, etc.) which are vulnerable to extinction in the near future. World Conservation Union (IUCN) is the foremost authority on...

Polarbear

Venus Fly Trap

Indicator species

An indicator species is any biological species that defines a trait or characteristic of the environment. For example, a species may delineate an ecoregion or indicate an environmental condition...

Pioneer Species

Pioneer species are species which colonize previously uncolonized land, usually leading to ecological succession. Since uncolonized land may have thin, poor quality soils with few nutrients,...

Limiting Factors

Factors or things that will limit an ecosystem from reaching full carrying capacity.

Carrying Capacity

The carrying capacity of a biological species in an environment is the population size of the species that the environment can sustain indefinitely, given the food, habitat, water and other...

Climax Community

In ecology, a climax community, or climatic climax community, is a biological community of plants and animals which, through the process of ecological succession — the development of vegetation in...

Succession

Primary succession

Primary succession is one of two types of biological succession and ecological succession of plant life, and occurs in an environment in which new substrate, devoid of vegetation and usually...

Secondary Succession

Secondary succession is one of the two types of ecological succession of plant life. As opposed to primary succession, secondary succession is a process started by an event (e.g. forest fire,...

Ecological Succession

Ecological succession, a fundamental concept in ecology, refers to more or less predictable and orderly changes in the composition or structure of an ecological community. Succession may be...

Population Growth

Population growth is the change in population over time, and can be quantified as the change in the number of individuals in a population using "per unit time" for measurement. The term population...

Erosion

Erosion is a gravity driven process that moves solids (sediment, soil, rock and other particles) in the natural environment or their source and deposits them elsewhere.

Urbanization

Urbanization (also spelled "urbanisation") is the physical growth of urban areas as a result of global change. Urbanization is also defined by the United Nations as movement of people from rural...

Exponential Growth

Exponential growth (including exponential decay) occurs when the growth rate of a mathematical function is proportional to the function's current value. In the case of a discrete domain of...
