Types of Biodiversity

Trophic Levels

Types of Food/Animals

Producer- Makes energy themselves

Consumer- Consumes energy form other organisms

Ecological Succesion

Ecological Sucession

Types of ecological Sucession

Carrying Capacity- The number of individual species an ecosystem can support; because of the limiting factors, an ecosystem has a certain capacity for growth. Each ecosystem can only supprt so many organisms

Climax Community- Forms in the last stage of succession; if undisturbed it will stay.

Limiting Factors- Conditions of an enviorment that limit the growth of a species; Biotic and Abiotic factors that prevent the continuous growth of a population. Populations would continuously increase if thay had all the resources they need in unlimited amounts. Limiting factors keep the population below the carrying capacity.

Pioneer Species- Grow Fast, Small, and require few resources; establish itself at the start of succession. They die, decay and then other species push them out and continue the process.
