Temperate Deciduous forest

A temperate deciduous forest is a biome found in the eastern and western United States, Canada, central Mexico, South America, Europe, China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea and parts of Russia


 An individual animal, plant, or single-celled life form.

New node

Levels of Organization


A particular section, group, or type of people or animals living in an area or country


 A group of people living together in one place


 A biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment


The regions of the surface and atmosphere of the earth or other planet occupied by living organisms


A biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment


 A large naturally occurring community of flora and fauna occupying a major habitat.


Coniferous forest

The temperate coniferous forest includes areas such as the Valdivian temperate rain forests of southwestern South America, the rain forests of New Zealand and Tasmania, northwest Europe


A vast, flat, treeless Arctic region of Europe, Asia, and North America in which the subsoil is permanently frozen

Grassland Savannah

 grassland with scattered individual trees

Freshwater Biome

consits of rivers, ponds, lakes, streams, creeks, and anything that is made up of fresh water

Marine Biome

The marine biome includes all bodies of water that are salty, such as oceans

Rain Forest

a forest with heavy annual rainfall


Barren or dull: "overgrazing has created desert conditions".

Energy Flow

Food Chain

A series of organisms each dependent on the next as a source of food

Food Web

A system of interlocking and interdependent food chains


Producer makes their own food

Primary Consumer

An herbivore is an animal that is adapted to eat plants..  

Secondary Consumer

is an organism that derives its energy and nutrient requirements from a diet consisting mainly or exclusively of animal tissue,

Teritary Consumer

In ecology, trophic dynamics is the system of trophic levels (Greek τροφή, trophē, food or feeding), which describes the position that an organism occupies in a food chain

Trophic Levels

Each of several hierarchical levels in an ecosystem, consisting of organisms sharing the same function in the food chain and the same nutritional relationship to the primary sources of energy.  


Biotic Factors

Biotic factors are the factors in a biome/ecosystem/habitat that include all living things. This can later be broken down into producers, consumers

Abiotic Factors

In biology, abiotic components are non-living chemical and physical factors in the environment. Abiotic phenomena underlie all of biology.


The variety of life in the world or in a particular habitat or ecosystem

Hot spots

 A small area or region with a relatively hot temperature in comparison to its surroundings.

Ecological Succession

 the gradual and orderly process of change in an ecosystem brought about by the progressive replacement of one community by another until a stable climax is established

Primary Succession

Primary succession is one of two types of biological and ecological succession of plant life, occurring in an environment in which new substrate devoid of vegetation and usually lacking soil, such as a lava flow or area left from retreated glacier, is deposited.

Secondary Succession

Secondary succession is one of the two types of ecological succession of plant life


Pioneer Species

 A person who is among the first to explore or settle a new country or area

Climax Community

In ecology, a climax community, or climatic climax community, is a biological community of plants and animals

Limiting Factors

A factor or limiting resource is a factor that controls a process, such as organism growth or species population, size, or distribution

Carrying Capacity

The number of people, other living organisms, or crops that a region can support without environmental degradation

Population Growth

increase in the number of people who inhabit a territory or state

Black Plague

Black Death: the epidemic form of bubonic plague experienced during the Middle Ages when it killed nearly half the people of western Europe

Industrial Revolution

The rapid development of industry in Britain in the late 18th and 19th centuries, brought about by the introduction of machinery

Exponential growth

Growth whose rate becomes ever more rapid in proportion to the growing total number or size


the property of being sustainable.

Logistic growth

A logistic function or logistic curve is the most common sigmoid curve. It models the "S-shaped" curve (abbreviated S-curve) of growth of some setset:


The term J-curve is used in several different fields to refer to a variety of unrelated J-shaped diagrams where a curve initially falls, but then rises to higher than the starting point..  


Many natural processes and complex system learning curves display a history dependent progression from small beginnings that accelerates and approaches a climax over time.

Population growth rate

Population growth is the change in a population over time,

Water Pollution

Water Pollution

pollution of the water in rivers and lakes.

New node

Point Source

A source of energy, such as light or sound, that can be regarded as having negligible dimensions.

non-point source

Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution is water pollution affecting a water body from diffuse sources, such as polluted runoff from agricultural areas draining into a river, or wind-borne debris blowing out to sea


A body of permeable rock that can contain or transmit groundwater
