Population growth rate is the rate or speed at which a population grows.

Exponential growth- is growth of a population, normally avoiding its limiting factors, that multiplies over time.(creating a J-curve graph) On the other hand a S-curve graph is made by a population that is very effected by its limiting factors; these populations grow to their carring capacity then begin to die off from limiting factors




blue jays


foxes, squirrels, rabbits,mice

frogs, snakes, fish, salamanders

Scorpians, snakes, birds, sirvivorman



Biotic-living factors in an ecosystem


couple rocks

Abiotic Factor- the nonliving factors in an ecosystem



Temperate deciduous forest

Coniferous forest


Freshwater biome

Water pollution, Aquifer- under ground water sources

Marine biome

Watershed- a area of land and water which contributes pollution to a water source, Impermeable surfaces- roof,side walk,road,parking lot, etc., Stormwater runoff, point source- pollution from a known source which can be traced back to its source, nonpoint source- collective pollution from an unknown source

Biodiversity- the variety of organisms and their differences around the world.

Ecological succession-growth of populations

Climax community- a communtiy with a max number of organisms

Primary succession- the first time life/populations grows in an area

Secondary succession- the times when life/population grow back in a area

Pioneer species- the first organisms/populaton to show up in an lifeless area

New node

A Food Chain is a diagram showing the transfer of energy in a continues and repeating line.

A Food Web shows all energy transfer relationships in an enviroment/ecosystem.

Ecological succession

Secondary succession- When an ecosystem is damaged or destroyed and the local community starts to grow again

Pioneer species- an organism that can thrive in an area with limited resources. Usually the first organisms to move a new enviroment.

Primary succession- the first time an community of wildlife grows up in an area

Climax community- a community in which populations have a max number of organisms.

Limiting factors-are biotic and abiotic things that limit the max population size., Carrying capacity- is the max sized community that a specific enviroment can contain. Once the carrying capacity is reached limiting factors down size the populations.
