1. Trophic Levels

1.1. Producer

1.2. Primary Consumer

1.3. Secondary Consumer

1.4. Teritary Consumer

1.5. Decomposer

2. Biome

2.1. Desert

2.2. Rainforest

2.3. Tundra

2.4. Coniferous forest

2.5. Freshwater

2.6. Grassland

2.7. Temperate decidiuous forest

2.8. Marine

3. Ecosystem

3.1. Trophic Levels

3.2. Biotic Factors

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

3.3. Abiotic Factors

3.3.1. Something that was never living and never will be living.

4. Types of Biodiversity

4.1. Ecosystem

4.1.1. Community Population Organism

4.2. Species

4.2.1. Endangered

4.2.2. Threatened

4.3. Genetic

5. Hot Spots

5.1. Hotspots are when some ecosystems have more species than others.

6. Biodiversity

6.1. Biodiversity is the variety of organisms in an ecosystem.

7. Succession

7.1. Primary

7.1.1. Pioneer species

7.1.2. Climax Community

7.2. Secondary

7.3. Ecological

7.4. Indicator

8. Carring Capcity

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

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

9. Population

9.1. population growth

9.2. population growth rate

9.2.1. J-curve

9.2.2. S-curve

9.3. Expotential growth

10. Water pollution

10.1. Aquifer

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

10.2. Desalination

10.3. Water purification

11. Water!

11.1. Watershed

11.2. Impermeable surface

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

11.3. Erosion

11.3.1. 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.

11.4. Runoff

11.4.1. 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.

11.5. Wetlands

11.5.1. 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.

12. Source

12.1. Point source

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

12.2. Non-point source

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

13. Resource

13.1. Natural resources

13.2. Renewable

13.2.1. This means that the resource can keep being supplied.

13.3. Non-renewable

13.3.1. This means that the resource cannot be replaced.

14. Pollution

14.1. Organic pollutant

14.2. Inorganic pollutant
