Biotic Factors

Something that was or still is living.It can also be part of a once living thing.

Abiotic Factors

Something that was never living and never will be living.

Types of Biodiversity

Ecosystem

Community, Population, Organism

Species

Endangered

Hot Spots

Hotspots are when some ecosystems have more species than others.

Biodiversity

Biodiversity is the variety of organisms in an ecosystem.

Carring Capcity

Carry capcity is how much an ecocsystem can provide for the animal and plant life in that environment.

Limiting factors can help an ecocsystem keep its population below its carring capcity.

Population

population growth

population growth rate

Water pollution

Aquifer

An aquifer can help purify water so that way it is drinkable to humans.

Desalination

Water purification

Water!

Watershed

Impermeable surface

An impermeable surface is when water can not soak into the ground.For example a parking lot or a sidewalk.

Erosion

This can be caused if there are not enough trees or deep rooted plants by a river bank.Therefore dirt and sediment will runoff into the river and cause pollution.

Runoff

This can carry heavy amounts of pollutants that can run into a river,lake or stream.These pollutants carried in the runoff can kill aquatic life and other organisms.Runoff can be kept from polluting these rivers,streams,and lakes if by impermeable surfaces,deep rooted plants were put around them and if people would be careful of what debris they put into the streets and down into the sewers.

Wetlands

Wetlands can help with pollution problems.For example since they have numerous plant life,those plants help clean the air.Also any runoff from a nearby town or city,the wetland's deep rooted plants would absorb the runoff therefore protecting anything else that could have been harmed if it came in contact with the polluted runoff., Urbanization, This can cause wetlands to be destroyed.

Source

Point source

Point Source is when you can trace a pollutant back to its original source.

Non-point source

Non-point source is when you can not trace a pollutant back to its source.

Resource

Natural resources

Renewable

This means that the resource can keep being supplied.

Non-renewable

This means that the resource cannot be replaced.

Pollution

Organic pollutant

Inorganic pollutant
